Gilt launches men’s site Park & Bound

Men don’t have it easy when it comes to fashion: there are seemingly not as many possibilities as for women, and if there are, it’s hard to take them seriously if you’re not extremely fashion-forward.But lately, their market has been getting the attention it deserves, and results are a far cry from slightly-too-metrosexual GQ editorials: first designer e-store Net-à-Porter launched Mr. Porter, an online destination for men, featuring e-commerce of the hottest brands of the moment as well as how-tos and even a wardrobe manager, and now, flash sale company Gilt has set out to do the same.

Well, not entirely: yes, the items are full-priced and there is fashion advice as on Mr. Porter, but Park & Bound seems to target fashion first-timers as well as more experienced shoppers. While it features designers including Rick Owens and Thom Browne, it also sells more accessible brands like J.Crew, and the option to buy fully styled looks off the models on the site makes it easy to look fashionable for everyone.Check it out at and enjoy free shipping on everything you buy in its launch phase. – Yahoonews
