    Gant unveiled their spring/summer collection of menswear last night to a packed house of fashionistos at their Georgetown store, which used to be Saloun. Five Gant guys [DC United's Chris Pontius, Thrillist's Leo Schmid, radio personality Tommy McFly, chef Nicholas Stefanelli, and Saudi-US Trade Group's Lucien Zeigler] were dressed head-to-toe in the brand's punchy, preppy attire. 

    Guests enjoyed brews from DC Brau, passed bites, wine, champagne, and 30% off all merchandise. Gift bags contained GANT By Michael Bastian and Gant Rugger sunglasses and signature GANT fragrance.

    Gant CEO David Arbuthnot appeared to be surprised by the turnout. "We were wondering where all these cool people came from!" he told Guest of a Guest. "After several parties at stores this year, this was probably the one with the best energy." Arbuthnot joined Gant two years ago after working at Christian Dior.
