Brunching In L.A. With Gilt Man

by Maya Burkenroad · November 19, 2010

Wednesday, The London West Hollywood hosted the Gilt Man's launch of their guide to men's style, Gilt MANual. Hope you heard that, New York; brunch on a weekday, on a rooftop in the sun, in NOVEMBER.

Although  Angelenos don't have the weekday brunch attire 100% down, mostly because we looked a little like we were going to a polo match in Las Vegas, we still applaud the effort.

Jenna Landry, director of communications for Gilt Groupe, Gilt Man editorial director Tyler Thoreson (whom I would feel completely comfortable with making my man's style choices solely based on his outfit) and the lovely folks of Bollare, joined forces to host the wonderful morning brunch. Although mostly ladies, gents from the The Denim Guy and Genlux Magazine were there to almost balance out the boy-girl ratio.

Style tips flew, cards were exchanged, connections were solidified and it couldn't have made for a more perfect Wednesday morning in LALA.

Gilt Groupe thought so, too. In fact, it seemed like the Gilt folks were pretty sold on our digs here in L.A. so hopefully they have plans to return soon. And will perhaps take our time zone into consideration because we are getting tired of having to wake up at 5am for their sales. Throw us a 9pm EST sale, would ya?
