Huckberry’s big Summer Sale, Italian Made Boots, a Moonphase Watch, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Huckberry: Big ol’ Summer Sale

Huckberry

It’s mid season clearance time people. Now that we’re all sweating balls, what better time to buy some boots, eh? It actually is a good time, considering the prices. They want to get this stuff out of their warehouse to make room for the new fall stuff on the way. So this old stuff from last fall has gotta go. Still can’t believe those Astorflex boots are kickin’ about at ninety bucks. Also. Levi moon sale? Awwww yeeeeeeeah. Big thanks to Brandon D. for the tip!

 

Brooks Brothers: Summer Online Sale + Clearance

Brooks Brothers

This is a weird one because they’re advertising a summer clearance AND a summer sale… yet most prices don’t look like they’ve moved much if at all? Beats me. I thought the Allen Edmonds for Brooks Brothers shoes were long gone. But it doesn’t appear that way. Some people insist that these aren’t AEs, but… the Park Avenue style (the plain oxford cap toes) are still labeled as AEs. And if they aren’t from Allen Edmonds… who’s making them? Made in the USA and Goodyear welted. Boots are obviously Red Wings.

 

Spier & Mackay: New Items Added to Sale + 2 for $ 40 Polos (reg. $ 30 each)

Spier & Mackay

Sizes are scattered (it’s Spier & Mackay after all) but there are still some solid deals to be found in their sale section right now. And it’s not just suits and sportcoats. Trousers, sweaters, ties… etc. But if you are going for something more dressed up/tailored, head here for a review of their slim fit suits, and head here for a review of their more generous contemporary fit. Meanwhile, for those who are a fan of their polos, they’re doing a two for $ 40 deal through 7/15. That’s a savings of $ 10 each when you buy two or more.

 

Massdrop: Allen Edmonds Chukkas Still Available – $ 249.99 FINAL

Massdrop X Allen Edmonds

Looks like the chocolate brown is sold out, but the other colors are still fair game. I’m wondering if the timetable is just too long this time. It’s the middle of summer, and you’re asking guys to lay down a quarter of a grand on shoes they won’t see until the very end of October (the estimated ship date). That’s a lonnnnnnnnnnng time. AND you can’t return them if they don’t work out? That’s a big ask.

 

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Early Access Starts NOW

Nordstrom

And we’re off. If you’re a cardmember. For the rest of us, we’ll have to wait until Friday July 20th. And yes, we’ll have a full run down of picks then when the doors are thrown open to the general public.

 

BONUS  Massdrop: Glycine Moonphase – $ 399 FINAL 

Dappered.com

Oddly easy to dress up or down for a moonphase. Swiss made automatic with a true moonphase cutout (it’s not some AM/PM indicator). Final sale of course, being that once again this is Massdrop.

Also worth a mention:

  • Club Monaco: Extra 30% off sale styles. No code needed.
  • J. Crew: Extra 30% off sale styles w/ SHOPNOW
  • GAP: Up to 50% off everything, + an extra 20% off everything w/ MORE

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Allen Edmonds Shoebank Tent Sale, BOGO Shorts, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Allen Edmonds Shoebank: Major Tent Sale Reductions

Dappered.com

  • Carlyle Oxford – $ 170
  • Cornwallis Oxford – $ 199
  • Fifth Avenue – $ 170
  • Higgins Mill – $ 199
  • Liverpool Chelseas – $ 199
  • Mackenzie Medallion Toe Wholecut – $ 199
  • Maclennan Wholecut – $ 199
  • McAllister Wingtip Oxford – $ 199
  • Nomad Chukkas – $ 199
  • Cordovan Park Avenue Oxfords – $ 399
  • St. John’s Double Monk – $ 199

Good grief this one is a monster. It’s old school too. The e-commerce site for their factory 2nds on AllenEdmonds.com is NOT reflecting this tent sale. You have to go to the old shoebank site, and order over the phone. No links above because sizes and colors are scattered depending on the model, but I tested some common sizes and widths and that’s what I got for some common styles. $ 170 for Carlyles AND Fifth Avenues is very impressive. But remember, these are 2nds quality. And they’re still gonna nail you with a $ 25 restocking fee if you send them back.

 

Banana Republic: Additional 50% off Sale Items

Banana Republic

And I do believe it’s fair to say that the sale section is stacked. At least for now, at post time. Those suede wingtips are back to a dirt cheap price (full review here), and that lightweight Italian merino crew could be perfect to dig out post sundown to wear with shorts.

 

 J. Crew Factory: Buy one get one free shorts w/ FREESHORTS

J. Crew Factory Shorts

If you spent the colder months not skipping legs day at the gym, then it might be time to stock up on some new shorts (or, if all of your shorts are old ratty cargos, it’s also time to stock up on new shorts). Lots of styles and inseam lengths to pick from, but 9″ should work for most guys. But hop to it. Code expires today, 6/21. Happy solstice and what not.

 

Lands’ End: 40% off full-price suits w/ SUIT & 1489

Lands' End

Seems like LE has been getting a bit tight-fisted with their codes as of late. Yes, there was a 50% off one item deal running yesterday, but 40% off seems to be not too bad. Full disclosure: I haven’t ever tried their new-ish year-rounder suit separates. But for under $ 200 (for Australian merino wool), in a bunch of different fits? Might be worth a real shot. Couple of seasonal options as well. And as is standard with LE, you can get the pants hemmed before they ship. Sizes for the jackets and pants can be a bit scattered depending on the fabric, fit, and color that you’re gunning for.

 

Massdrop: Woodlore Cedar Shoe Valet Starter Kit II – $ 54.99 FINAL ($ 79.95)

Massdrop: Woodlore Cedar Shoe Valet Starter Kit II

That’s a lot of shoe-care goodness for under $ 55. Yes, it’s final sale, but it’s not like this thing isn’t gonna “fit.” Great for the guy just getting into style, or, the guy who’s into style but doesn’t have a good place to store his shoe care stuff quite yet. You get the cedar shoe valet/stand, plus: Black carnauba shoe wax, Burgundy carnauba shoe wax, Brown carnauba shoe wax, Neutral carnauba shoe wax, 4 cloth applicators, 2 polish daubers, and 2 small horsehair shine brushes.

 

BONUS  Brooks Brothers: Semi Annual Sale Expires SUNDAY

Brooks Brothers

Last call guys. The thing about the Semi Annual sale as opposed to other Brooks Brothers sales, is that this one includes their most popular styles. Where as a shirt deal or a suit deal might exclude the basics like white and light blue dress shirts, or navy or gray suits, that’s not the case here. Is the stuff still kinda expensive? Yes. But those suits are made in the USA from Italian Fabric. They’ve got a lot going for them. Good for the crowd who’s in a suit and tie during the work week. Full picks from the sale can be found here.

 

BONUS II  J. Crew: 30% off Select w/ SHOPSUMMER

J. Crew

AGAIN? I mean, thank you J. Crew. But I was convinced that these things weren’t gonna go on sale for the longest of time. Now it seems like they’re usually kicking about around 20% – 30% off. No, you don’t need to buy the entire suit to get the savings. Just want a sportcoat? Totally fine. Looking for a pair of slim lightweight pants for summer, but don’t need the jacket? You can do that too. Head here for a full review of these suits. Note that their new stand-alone unconstructed white cotton-linen sportcoat is also getting this cut.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Spier Suits for $275, Free Shirt Deal at TheTieBar, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Spier & Mackay: Save $ 107 when you buy 2 Suits

Spier & Mackay

Suits that are regularly $ 328 – $ 398 per, now drop to $ 275 – $ 344.50 per. Yes, it’s a kinda funky discount, but it applies to both their regular Australian wool suits (drops them to $ 275 per) or their fancier Italian wool suits (drops those to $ 344.50 per). Not bad considering they’re ALL half canvas construction and available in slim or contemporary fits. It is Spier & Mackay though, so expect sizes to be scattered. And yes, it does work if you mix and match an Aussie wool suit with one of their Italian wool suits.

 

Massdrop: AE Chukka 2nds – $ 179.99 FINAL | Loake Pimlico Chukka – $ 204.99 FINAL

AE & Loake Chukkas

It’s a gall-darned chukka party over at Massdrop right now. The issue… is that they’re both final sale. No returns. It’s a pre-order model, so, they’re not keen on taking stock back. So there’s a real risk there with shoes. Especially if they’re 2nds like the AEs. Made in the USA for the Allen Edmonds and make in the UK for the Loakes.

 

Todd Snyder: 30% off Select Items 

Todd Snyder

This is a weird one, because some of the items are 30% off, some are a little MORE than 30% off, and some are a little less. Beats me. But hey, it’s nice to see at least a little mid-season discounting from Todd Snyder. Sizes are scattered on the suits. They’re made in Canada from Italian fabrics though, so if you land one, lucky you.

 

Allen Edmonds: Warehouse Sale in their Clearance Section

Hat tip to Eric J. for the heads up on this. I haven’t seen prices like this on AEs in a good long while. Yes, there’s some funky designs in there, but suede strands? Just in time for the warm weather? Yes please.

 

TheTieBar: Free Dress Shirt w/ Purchase of $ 150+ w/ BREEZY

The Tie Bar

The Combo Pick: THREE Dress Shirts for $ 140 + Knit Silk Pointed Tip in Navy  = $ 165 AND you get a free fourth shirt

Doubling up the discount here. Confirmed that this should work from the good folks at TheTieBar. If you want to stock up, grab three of their pretty darn good dress shirts for $ 140 (usually it’s $ 55 per, or, the bulk deal is 3 / $ 140). Then add something small, like one of their new-ish pointed tip silk knit ties. Perfect for summer. That trips the $ 150 balance and you end up with a free shirt. You’ll have to manually add that 4th shirt to your cart, since at checkout they just drop $ 55 off your bill once you nip past $ 150. So if you don’t want a tie, by all means, just go for four shirts.

 

BONUS  J. Crew: 30% off Select w/ SHOPTOIT

J. Crew Unsuit

The Pick: J. Crew’s Un-Suit Jacket & Matching Pant – $ 175.60 ($ 266)

Last day for this. Full range of picks over here, including some wheelhouse wool suits. No, you don’t need to buy the entire suit to get the savings. Just want a sportcoat? Totally fine. Looking for a pair of slim lightweight pants for summer, but don’t need the jacket? You can do that too. Head here for a full review of these suits.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

J Crew Factory Jumps in the Tech Polo Ring, USA Made Dress Shoes, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

J. Crew Factory: 50% off (suiting excluded) + New Arrivals

J. Crew Factory

What have we here? “Performance” polos from J. Crew Factory? Ordered. And don’t worry, the annual polo palooza is fast approaching. Last year wasn’t the best polo crop. There are some good ones this year. Fingers crossed these make the list as a winner.

 

Brooks Bros: $ 100 off $ 300, $ 200 off $ 500 w/ SP18BC

Brooks Brothers

See what we’re doing here? We’re using socks from the sale section (at post time this is working) to trip the $ 300 threshold. At $ 300, use the $ 100 off $ 300 code SP18BC and you end up with Goodyear Welted, made in the USA shoes for just north of $ 200. Not bad being that they aren’t 2nds quality.

 

Target: Goodfellow & Co. Oxford Cloth Pants – $ 24.99

Target: Goodfellow & Co. Oxford Cloth Pants

So the site says these things are “poplin” but… it sure doesn’t look like it. Big thanks to Ryan N. for the tip who saw these in person, in store. Available in either slim or straight fit. Could be perfect for those hot summer days. Also, I don’t know what the “printed” distinction means on these pants. They just look like they’re heathered/chambray-ish/oxford cloth-y. Beats me.

 

 Allen Edmonds Anniversary Sale ends MONDAY

Allen Edmonds

How’d tax day shake down for you. Good? Got some money back? Y’know, that’s actually not good. But. I totally understand how it makes one feel. Anyway, sock that return away in the emergency fund. But if you just can’t stand it, there’s the big AE sale.

 

Massdrop: Seiko SKX – $ 169.99 FINAL

Seiko SKX

Well look what’s back on Massdrop. It’s worth noting that while $ 169.99 is a fine price for a Seiko 007 or 009, they’re final sale. If you want the ability to return the thing, head over to Amazon or JomashopThey’ve got much of the SKX series for $ 179.99. BUT… and this is a big difference from most Massdrop products, THIS time Massdrop actually has these in stock. No waiting. Ships in 2-3 days.

 

BONUS  Huckberry: LeviMoon is back!!! – $ 239.98 ($ 289)

LeviMoon Lamp

Good God that’s a lot of money ($ 240!!) for what amounts to a small lamp (if that, depending on how much light it casts). But… good grief I want one. Levitates thanks to magic. Or, magnets. Magic or magnets. I dunno. I didn’t major in the science.

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

New Spring Sportcoats, J. Crew 40% off Combos, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Massdrop: UK Made Chukkas – $ 204.99 FINAL ($ 335) | Victorinox Automatic – $ 249.99 FINAL | Seiko Sea Urchin Auto – $ 129.99 FINAL

Massdrops

The chukkas were a late addition to the big President’s Day sale round up, so, adding it here again. Made in England, these suede, Dainite stud soled, Goodyear welted chukkas are absolute classics. But final sale shoes are a real risk. What’s the difference between these and the Loake Kempton? The last. These are a little longer and leaner but still not arrow sharp or pointy. Want em’ in leather instead of suede? Tack on an extra twenty bucks. And note that sizing is in UK sizes. They recommend US customers go a full size down from their US size. Meanwhile, for the watches, the automatic Victorinox clocks in at 38mm, so, good for the smaller watch fans. Meanwhile, the Sea Urchin from Seiko is a classic, but widely available for just ten bucks more at Jomashop and Amazon, and it’s not final sale there.

 

J. Crew: 10% off 1, 20% off 2, 30% off 3, and 40% off 4 w/ ZMTWKIP

J. Crew

Weird tiers, but 40% off is pretty unheard of. Even if there’s tons of exclusions (no sportcoats are up for this grab). It DOES work on plenty of sale items though, so you can puff up your car with some small/cheap stuff from the sale section to net a higher % off. Obviously sticking with a similar color palate above, but, wanted to give a couple of rugged but still somewhat refined examples of what you can get for 40% off. Looks like that unstructured, shawl collar English Wool jacket has been restocked, but it’s still on sale. So you get the boots, socks, and the jacket for less than what the original retail price was on that sportcoat ($ 328).

 

Huckberry: Woolrich Yankee Unlined – $ 211.98 ($ 325)

Woolrich Yankee

Not quite “steal alert” worthy, but man are they something else. Made in the USA from US sourced leather, these things are the real deal and hugely underappreciated by the rest of the boot wearing public. Uppers are cut from nice and soft, deep looking Horween leather that requires zero break in time. None. The quadruple stitching makes for a nice sweep out and back for an apron toe, and the overall shape is a touch sleeker than a standard work boot (still some clunk, but it’s not outrageous). There’s room in the toe box, but it’s not as tall as some sh*t kickers. They are, in a word, beautiful. And tough as hell too. Comfortable as crazy out of the box, and I often use them as my go-to light hikers if I’m headed somewhere post hike where a standard hiking boot would look out of place.

 

Spier & Mackay: New Sportcoats Pre Order ($ 278 per)

Spier & Mackay

From basics like those blue and grey hopsacks with the patch pockets, to something more interesting and spring-ready like their wool/linen options. Nice to see that the prices are still nicely affordable, and since it’s Spier & Mackay you have to think they’d run a sale or two in the not overly distant future. Half canvas on these things too. This is a pre-order though, with shipping happening around mid March.

 

Allen Edmonds: $ 100 off select Dainite Soled Models

Allen Edmonds

When does $ 100 off not feel like $ 100 off? When its only been a few weeks since Allen Edmonds jacked their full retail prices up. But, we’ll all get used to it eventually, and under $ 300 for those brown Higgins Mill, which hadn’t gone on sale as of yet, isn’t a half bad price.

J. Crew’s new $266 Unconstructed Suit, a $130 Automatic Diver, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

EXPRESS: 40% off Everything

Those boots sure look like some Wolverine 1K knockoffs, no? Could have potential. reviews seem decently solid. Meanwhile, their EXPRESS tech polos are outstanding. Tons of stretch, and they don’t go on sale all that often.

 

J. Crew: New “Un Suits” + 30% off Select full Price & Sale w/ SOGOOD

I have to admit it guys… I think this “un suit” idea is pretty cool. Especially for the warmer months. $ 266 for a cotton-linen, unconstructed suit that’s super easy to dress up or way, way down, and you can break it up and wear the pieces individually on their own? I think J Crew has a hit on their hands here. Is it gonna replace the need for most men to have a wheelhouse, nicely structured (but not overly structured) charcoal or navy wool suit in their wardrobe? Of course not. But are a lot more guys gonna look really good for not too much cash with one of these un-suit things? You bet. Hat tip to reader Jean for sending in the tip on these new suits. Meanwhile, code SOGOOD knocks 30% off select items (lots of exclusions of course) and I believe gets you free shipping through Sunday.

 

Nordstrom: New Additions to Sale

Nordstrom

Still seems like Nordstrom is continuing to clean out their winter stock. Lots of outerwear and sweaters and what not in the sale section right now. Plus, since it’s Nordstrom, it’s never final sale and it all ships and returns for free.

 

Club Monaco: 25% off $ 200+ w/ REFRESH

Club Monaco

Exclusions are Birkenstock, Viberg, Woolrich, and Zespa. So? Filson gets the cut. Not the biggest discount, but it’s a discount. Which sometimes can be tough to get if you’re shopping for a made in the USA Filson briefcase or duffel.

 

Massdrop.: Orient Mako 44.5 mm XL Automatic – $ 129.99 FINAL 

Orient Mako

Even though it’s final sale, that’s a pretty darn good price for a 200m, well built, automatic diver. But, it is a big sucker, so bigger broader fellas need only apply here. More than a few color combos to pick from too. Full review of this thing can be found here.

 

BONUS: Gustin’s Horween CXL #8 USA Made Briefcase is back – $ 249

Gustin

Made in the USA from Horween’s legendary, burgundy, chromexcel leather. Not super structured, so it’ll fit in well in business casual workplaces, but that leather is still something else with all of its texture and shade variations.

New J. Crew Factory Arrivals, Massdrop Watches, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Allen Edmonds Shoebank: Liverpool & 5th Ave for $ 195

Allen Edmonds

Huge thanks to James W. for sending in the style tip here. Liverpool 2nds and 5th Ave 2nds for under two hundred bucks? That’s awfully good. Especially for the Liverpool chelseas. Fingers crossed yours come with hardly a blemish to em. I have a pair of Liverpool 2nds, and I lucked out on mine. Couldn’t find the defect. Remember, there’s a $ 10 re stocking fee if you return any factory 2nd shoes.

 

J. Crew Factory: Up to 50% off New Arrivals

J. Crew Factory

First, most of you guys know how this works. J. Crew Factory releases a bunch of new arrivals, and then we wait. Discounts aren’t usually great from the jump. So, since it’s still February and this is Spring stuff, holding off could save you some dough. And second, two observations:

  1. Those shirts look… short, don’t they? Are they going for the untucked look here? And are they ACTUALLY shorter, or did they just use taller models? Info doesn’t say.
  2. Good on JCF to make a cheaper version of the hugely popular “deep water” unconstructed linen cotton blazer from big brother J. Crew. That’s certainly worth investigating for our upcoming best spring/summer sportcoats & blazers post.

 

Massdrop.: Victorinox Auto – $ 249.99 FINAL | Glycine Combat Sub – $ 379.99 FINAL

Victorinox & Glycine Massdrop

I know that most people are gonna gravitate towards the Glycine… but that price on the Victorinox is crazy. Even if you’re not a stainless steel bracelet kinda dude, and want to rip the thing off and put it on a leather strap (which it’d look dynamite on). If memory serves, last time it hit Massdrop that thing was $ 280. Sapphire crystal, water resistant to 100m, and it has an exhibition caseback? Not bad for $ 250. But, as always, it’s final sale.

 

DSW: 30% off Boots w/ BOOTS30

DSW Boots

Some exclusions, but they don’t look like many of these brands would apply: (Excludes Birkenstock, Brooks, Converse, Keen, Nike, Rainbow, Sorel, UGG, and Under Armour products).

 

B.R.: 40% off $ 200+ w/ BRFRESH (no BR merch exclusions)

Banana Republic

A high threshold, but not a bad deal considering there’s no exclusions once you get there. And that new basketweave cotton blazer, unlined in the back too, sure looks like it has potential. More picks that should trip this threshold can be found over here.

 

BONUS: A.E. Clearance: Those Higgins Mills are still there

Allen Edmonds Higgins Mill Boot | Dappered.com

Remember when I said (or wrote) “Don’t expect these to last long” ??? Right. Well, they’re lasting surprisingly long. Heck, there even seems to have been an additional restock of the natural CXL. So, I was loud wrong, but it’s still worth another mention in case you’re looking to invest in some really nice American Made boots.

Merino Henleys under $30, Scottish made Cashmere Scarves for $40, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

J. Crew: Extra 50% off Final Sale Items w/ SAVENOW

Only works on final sale stuff, and boy is the selection picked over. UPDATE: J. Crew dumped a LOT of new stuff in their sale section over night. Lots of seasonal suits and blazers. So, hop to it before this stuff runs out the door. Odd thing is, they say it’s good on final sale items, but I’m not seeing the usual “FINAL SALE NO RETURNS” verbiage on the product pages? Be careful though.

 

Massdrop: Scottish Made 100% Cashmere Scarves – $ 49.99 FINAL

Massdrop Scottish Scarves

It’s Massdrop, so it’s final sale, but forty bucks for a 100% cashmere scarf that was made in Scotland? Not bad. And you’ve got choices. 21 scarves in 3 different sizes. Only drawback, other than final sale, is that they won’t ship until the end of February. So, not much time left to use em’ after that.

 

Bonobos: FINAL SALE: Extra 40% off w/ SALEONSALE

Bonobos

Further reductions and no more tiers. Meanwhile, around thirty bucks is an amazing deal on those merino wool henleys. Sure, they require a bit more care in terms of washing, but they’re light years ahead of crappy cotton henleys.

 

DSW: $ 10 off $ 49, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 60 off $ 199 w/ KEEPSAVNG

DSW

DSW’s excellent for the price chukkas are back. Some deals to be had for sure if you like DSW’s house brand lines. Aston Grey has always been a nice budget brand. You can check out a full review of those chukkas right here.

 

J. Crew Factory: Extra 50% off Clearance w/ GOTTASHOP

J. Crew Factory

The J. Crew Factory clearance section can be less than impressive sometimes. But now? It’s actually kinda solid. Who knows how much stock they have left, but their merino wool sweaters (v necks, cardigans, and crews) are quite nice. Especially for 50% off the on-sale price.

Also worth a mention:

  • H&M: Extra 25% off sale items w/ 9119
  • Brooks Brothers: They’re running a FINAL sale event? I honestly don’t recall them doing that in the past. No returns then, obviously.
  • Ledbury: Last day for an extra 40% off sale items w/ EXTRA40

New Nordy Sale Items, Extra 40% off Bonobos Clearance, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Nordstrom: New items added to sale/further markdowns?

Nordstrom

The post Christmas half-yearly sale is long gone, but it’s still winter clearance season and Nordstrom appears to be refreshing their sale section. Sizes can be a bit scattered depending on what you’re looking for, but there seems to be plenty of stock when it comes to their in-house basics (like stretch chinos and wool trousers). Meanwhile, a heads up on that LBM 1911 jacket: it’s listed in EU. So, subtract 10 to get the US size. (48EU = 38R in the US.) Everything, as always, ships and returns for free.

 

Bonobos: FINAL SALE: Extra 30% off w/ BULLSEYE or 40% Off $ 175+ w/ MORE

Bonobos

Got that? It’s all final sale, but the extra 40% off cut w/ MORE is more substantial than what they had been offering. Just has to be a spendy purchase (which isn’t that hard to do at Bonobos, even when stuff is already on sale). Picks and discounts above reflect the usage of that MORE code. No returns on any of this stuff though, so you better be familiar with Bonobos and their fits.

 

Allen Edmonds: Additional items added to clearance

Allen Edmonds

Yep, it very much is the tail end of winter clearance season. Quite a mish mash up there. And obviously not to scale… otherwise those would be some huge shoes and some teeny jackets.

 

Mr. Porter: Additional Reductions to Sale

Mr. Porter

Not gonna lie. We usually steer a bit clear of Mr. Porter. Why? Because most of what they carry is expensive as hell, and super high-fashion. But, they’re running one of their rare sales, and there are a few… less loud items in there. Sizes are super scattered, even on the picks above, since it’s down to clearance time.

 

Filson: Additional Markdowns to Sale Section

Filson

The Pick: Briefcase Computer Bag in Navy – $ 194.90 ($ 395)

Not a ton of stock in the sale, but that briefcase is about what the Original Briefcases were going for during that Brooks Brothers extra 25% off clearance sale from last week. So, it appears that it’s NOT the original briefcase, yet it’s not the padded computer bag either? I’m confused. Thanks to Brendan L. for the Tip!

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

BR Extra 50% off Sale Items, Extra 50% off J. Crew Factory Clearance, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

B.R.: Extra 50% off Sale Items (no code needed)

Banana Republic

No code needed here, and I do believe cardmembers STILL get an extra 10% off with BRCARD at checkout. Sale section isn’t overflowing, but there’s still some really good stuff in there. That’s not a bad price for White Oak Selvedge, especially considering they’re about to close down. Full review of those Goodyear Welted Spanish made wingtips can be found here.

 

J.C.F.: Extra 50% off Clearance Items w/ FIFTY

J Crew Factory

Looks like plenty of their fall collection has wandered its way into the clearance area. Extra 50% off with that FIFTY code. But, it’s still clearance, so sizes and color selection are scattered. Don’t expect stuff to stick around.

 

EXPRESS: 50% Off Everything + Free Shipping no min.

Express

EXPRESS is a little low in stock on some items. They got hammered pretty good on Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and have been running solid promos ever since. So, sizes might be scattered. Still nice to see a blanket 50% off though.

 

Bonobos: Extra 30% off Sale Items w/ HOHOHO

Bonobos

Extended. One. Last. Day. And it really has been one of the better deals Bonobos has run in a while. Not only is it a decent discount at 30% off, we’re talking about already marked down items here. So, those of us with tighter style budgets can actually play along a bit, depending on the piece we’re shooting for. That, and their sale section isn’t totally decimated. A solid selection is lurking in there.

 

Brooks Bros: Extra 25% off Clearance + Stackable Deals

Brooks Brothers

Just a reminder, since the extra 25% off clearance items ends today (12/21), you may have to hop to it if you’ll be using that extra discount on top of the following:

  1. $ 200 off $ 600 w/ BC17DC (excludes Red Fleece items)
  2. You can get a free $ 25 e-gift card with each purchase of a $ 150 e-gift card.

Got it? Good. More picks here. Prices above reflect the max discount and the usage of those “free” $ 25 gift cards when applicable.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Club Monaco: 30% off already marked-down styles, no code required.
  • Gustin: Their USA made briefcase in CXL #8 is back for pre-order.
  • J. Crew: 30% off select styles w/ GIFTASAP
  • END: 25% off (some exclusions apply) w/ VIPSALE
  • Nordstrom: Just a reminder that they usually run a half-yearly sale starting the day after Christmas. We’ll have a full breakdown of the sale that day, so, stay tuned.

Allen Edmonds Rediscover America Sale, EXPRESS 40% off everything, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Allen Edmonds: Rediscover America Sale (Now – 10/24)

Allen Edmonds

It’s one of their biggest sales of the year, where select models get huge markdowns. Under three hundred (albeit barely) is pretty nice for a pair of first quality Daltons. Note that the above pair of Mcallisters are shown in the now discontinued “merlot” shade. Yet, you CAN get Mcallisters in Oxblood, which while not quite as dark, should be pretty close. Huge fan of the do-anything, danite sole equipped Higgins Mill. I’ve got a pair in Natural CXL and love em’. Full review of a dark brown pair can be found here.

 

J. Crew Factory: 50% off Site Wide (suiting excluded)

J. Crew Factory

Suiting is out, but sportcoats are in. Perfect timing being that this just hit our site the other day. Now, to all the dudes on social media who are yakkin’ about how slim the lapels are on J. Crew and JCF jackets… relax. You guys are making it sound like a 2.5″ lapel looks like a Nehru jacket. It’s not as big of a deal as you think it is. First, nobody notices. As long as they aren’t Bar III from Macy’s skinny (think Neil Ashton on NBCSN’s Premier League Live, which honestly, I think looks fine on him), or cruise ship wide, then nobody is gonna tell the difference (unless the observer in question is a serious menswear nerd, but if you’re dressing for those types, then it might be worth re-evaluating what’s going on inside your head). Yes, I’d say anything under 2.5″ starts to look skinny. But unless you’re a super broad dude, slimmer lapels (2.5″) look fine with the slimmer cuts (and body types) of today. 2.5″ – 3.75″ seems to be a good range. Do lapels, like trouser leg width, expand and contract over time? Yes. But there is a range that’ll look good forever. Try not to overreact in either direction.

 

H&M: Mid Season Sale

H&M

Boy… this seems like a clearance more than anything. Sizes are scattered, at best. Even on the picks above.

 

Lands’ End: 40% off Reg. Priced Styles w/ MOON and 3095

 Lands' End

Note that it’s just regular priced stuff this time. So, you can’t knock an extra 40% off sale items, BUT… it’s not limited to just one item either. Stock up if you’d like. Sadly, that Half-Canvas wool blazer is backordered, in most sizes, until early November. Efforting a review with that Primaloft Quilted Jacket. Not bad for a Barbour lookalike.

 

EXPRESS: 40% off EVERYTHING

Express

Nice to see their Express Tech polos getting the cut. Those things usually get excluded from regular codes and promos. They won best in show this year during our annual Polopalooza. For the colder weather stuff, their sweaters have always performed well in the past… but it looks like they’ve switched from all merino to a merino blend this year for their v-necks? Hm. Cost saving measure perhaps?

 

BONUS  Massdrop: Junghans Max Bill Auto Watch – $ 699 FINAL ($ 965)

Junghans Max Bill Automatic Watch

Well look what’s back again. That’s a lot of cash to drop on a wrist watch. But? Seems like some of you fellas are down with that (as far as threads and the social media channels indicate). Made in Germany. Automatic movement that hacks and hand winds. Timeless Bauhaus looks. 38 mm in diameter and 40mm from lug to lug. Convex hard plexiglass crystal with SICRALAN coating. Final sale though.

 

BONUS II  J. Crew: 40% off select styles w/ YAYCLOTHES

J. Crew

The Pick: Goodyear Welted Kenton Boots – $ 136.80 – $ 148 ($ 228 – $ 248)

Just in case you missed it the other day, this 40% off code is applicable to their Kenton boot line. That discount drops these goodyear welted boots down to the mid $ 100s. Not bad. Code expires today (10/5) so, now’s your last chance.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Saddleback: Looks like they’re still doing their 25% off dark coffee brown sale?
  • DSW: $ 10 off $ 49, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 60 off $ 199 w/ OCTOBER2017
  • Cole Haan: 30% off your purchase.
  • Banana Republic: 40% off your purchase (usual exclusions like BRPicks apply) plus free 2-3 day shipping on orders of $ 75+ w/ BRSHIP
  • Massdrop: They’re running a Kent Wang Deerskin Gloves drop. Super simple design.

Uniqlo “Customized” Shirts, Saddleback Sale, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

UNIQLO: Neck and Sleeve “Easy Care” Shirts – $ 29.90

UNIQLO: Neck and Sleeve "Easy Care" Shirts

Is this really close to custom? Full honesty: I don’t get what all the fuss is about.

UNIQLO easy care shirts used to come in the ballpark S, M, L, etc. sizing. Fine, that’s not ideal. But UNIQLO just rolled out a “add a tailor-made feel” shirt collection.

Really? It’s neck and sleeve measurements in two fits. Regular, or slim. And while it’s not a 32/33 shirt sleeve (but more dialed in) I wouldn’t go as far as saying that these are really that different than, say, a Nordstrom Slim Fit easy care in a 15.5 neck and 32/33 sleeve? Am I wrong? What am I missing? People are FREAKING OUT about these things. And while it’s been almost 2 years, I wasn’t impressed with their old easy care shirts. Fire away: joe@dappered.com.  I’m almost certainly wrong. But what gives? Is it the price?

 

J. Crew: 30% off Select Full Price & Sale w/ SHOPFAST

J. Crew

Lots of exclusions this time. Even their corduroy sportcoats are excluded. But some of their summerweights are in the sale section, and they’re now finally getting some sort of extra cut.

 

Saddleback: 25% off Anything in Dark Coffee Brown

Saddleback

First… what happened to the thin briefcase? The one that many of us know and love? They not making that thing anymore? That’d be a serious bummer if that’s the case. And second, this is a rare sale from Saddleback in a very popular color. They just don’t do these that often. Images above are NOT to scale, simply because I’m nowhere near as intelligent or talented as providing such would necessitate.

 

Spier & Mackay: Basic Suit Colors Restock

Spier & Mackay

Welcome back to the wheelhouse Spier & Mackay. Along with a newly re-designed website, Spier & Mackay has re-stocked some basic suit colors. Think navy, charcoal, and medium gray. Slim or Contemporary (athletic) fits. Around $ 360 USD depending on the exchange rate for the basic Australian Super 110s wool. Not bad for a half canvas suit with two fits and easy to tailor sleeve cuff buttons. Head here for a review of the contemporary fit (which is shown above in 40R).

 

Orient USA: 40% off + Free Shipping w/ THANKYOU

Orient

The Pick: Orient GMT Automatic Polaris – $ 345 ($ 575)

To me, it’s one of the best looking watches out there, no matter the price point. It looks and feels like a 4-figure watch. It’s elegant but interesting to the point it can’t be called a minimalist watch. Cobalt blue hands, including the GMT hand. Subtle 24 hr time ring helps you keep track of the time in another time zone. Nicely balanced, but not tiny. Now cheaper than what it usually goes for through 3rd party sites. Fair warning… seems like most (all?) of the rest of the Orient site, even with the 40% off deal, short of the Polaris is cheaper through 3rd parties.

Inexpensive Fall Boots, Italian Wool Sportcoats, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Bonobos: 25% off $ 175+ w/ OHSNAP

Bonobos

The Pick: Unconstructed Italian Wool Blazer – $ 300 ($ 400) 

A high threshold for sure. And yes, Bonobos is known more for their pants than their sportcoats. But their unconstructed Italian wool sportcoats are unique in the mens style world. Totally unconstructed. Not a sniff of lining in the back (just the sleeves), and a loose hopsack weave only increases the airflow. Lots of colors and two fit profiles to choose from. Code ends today, 9/21.

 

Club Monaco: Extra 30% off Sale Items w/ FALL30

Club Monaco

Club Monaco’s sale section is stacked right now. Lots of items. It’s the sizing that’s the problem. Sizes are pretty scattered across it all, so, this is more of a poke and hope situation. Code FALL30 runs clear through October 1st.

 

Massdrop: Made in Scotland Wool Throws – $ 54.99 ($ 95)

Massdrop wool throws

That’s not a bad price, at all, for a Scottish made wool throw. Time to upgrade from that crappy discount polyester fleece blanket you’ve got smashed in the closet. Throw this on the back of a couch and your date might just grab it to keep them warm, and they might invite you under the blanket too. 70 inches long and 56 inches wide. Final sale since it’s Massdrop.

 

J. Crew: 2 Unconstructed Summerweight Blazers are on Sale

J. Crew

The Pick: Unstructured Ludlow Cotton-Linen Blazer in Micro Stripe or Blue Houndstooth – $ 134.99 ($ 168)

And here we are, on technically the last day of summer, and finally these things get some sort of cut. They really are a brilliant blazer. Barely-there construction. Portuguese cotton/linen fabric. Easy to wear just about anywhere when it’s warm (or, even when it starts to cool off with jeans). Won best in show over here. Might be worth hanging out for the next extra 30% off sale items code? As long as sizes last?

 

DSW: $ 10 off $ 25, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 40 off $ 199 w/ SEPTEMBER2017

DSW Boots & Shoes

DSW’s tiered deal is back. Some deals to be had for sure if you like DSW’s house brand lines. Aston Grey has always been a nice budget brand. You can check out a full review of those chukkas right here. Should do well now that the weather is turning cooler.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Brooks Brothers: Their 30% off select sportcoats, suits, & more wardrobe event is still going on.
  • Ledbury: They’re running a sale called “Shirtember.” Select items only.
  • J. Crew Factory: They’ve dropped some new fall-specific items and are offering 40% off the “valued at” price. Usually prices will dip a bit lower than that.

New Tweed & Moleskin Sportcoats, Bulk J. Crew savings, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Spier & Mackay: New Fall Sportcoats Have Arrived

Spier & Mackay

Spier & Mackay has been on a ROLL lately. Sweaters, new outerwear, and now? Some extremely tempting looking, 1/4 butterfly lined fall fabric sportcoats. Got one on the way for an in-person look. Expect it to show up in our annual best fall sportcoats/blazers round up in the not too overly distant future. Remember, Spier & Mackay pricing is in Canadian Dollars on their site, so, prepare to convert if you’re here in the US. Also, they’ll cover the return shipping if it’s your first suit or sportcoat purchase.

 

J. Crew: 20% off Select 2 items or 30% off Select 3 items w/ STOCKUP

J. Crew

Lots of new arrivals have come into J. Crew, so, let’s build some outfits above to maximize the discount. Usual exclusions seem to apply. Shoes are out, as are most sportcoats and blazers (except for the corduory sportcoats). Code expires today, 9/14/17.

 

GAP: 40% off w/ HAPPY

GAP

Some usual exclusions apply (leather apparel and accessories, so, no belts, as well as jeans), but there’s plenty to be had here if you’re looking for fall basics and are wanting to stock up. Also… who knew that GAP was making an all merino wool henley?!?

 

B.R. FACTORY: Extra 40% off + Free Shipping w/ SAVE40 

BR Factory

Full disclosure… I don’t shop BR Factory that often (pretty happy with mainline Banana Republic stuff myself) and there is a noticeable difference in the fabrics that they use. (More synthetic blends… 60% other?!?) But, it’s noticeably less expensive too. Note that cardmembers can knock another 10% off with the code BRCARD. And also note that unlike the main GAP brands, return shipping through the mail is gonna cost you. $ 5.95 to be exact.

 

GUSTIN: Last Chance to get on their USA Made Briefcases

GUSTIN

The Pick: Horween Briefcase in Nut Dublin Brown – $ 219 ($ 249)

Prefunding for these things closes in two days, so, now’s the time if you’re gonna get in on it. Made in the USA from Horween leathers. Looks like the CXL #8 option has already filled up? No exterior branding this time around, and a lowered price from what they’ve been most recently selling them at ($ 249).

 

BONUS  Massdrop: Orient Ray II Automatic – $ 139.99 FINAL

Orient Ray II Automatic

That’s one heck of a price for a hacking, hand winding, 200m water resistant diver from Orient. Final sale though, as always. Blue or black. Up to you. Huge thanks to Brandon D. for sending in the style tip!

Gilt City J. Crew Factory Voucher, USA Made Boots, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Gilt City: J.Crew Factory Extra 35% Off In-Store or Online

J. Crew Factory

Most of you fellas know how this works, but, in case you don’t, here’s a crash course. Sign up for gilt or gilt city (or, login). Click the “RSVP” button on the J. Crew Factory offer page. Wait (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes an hour+). You’ll get an email, for free, with a one time use extra 35% offer code in there. The “cost” to you is that you’re now on Gilt’s email list (but, you can unsubscribe like any email list if you so choose). Vouchers have to be used by the end of Tuesday, 9/12. Not valid on men’s suiting, of course. Nor is it valid on cashmere, “The Score” items, or 3rd party merchandise. But it should work on their blue tweed sportcoat. No elbow patches this year, so, that’s a plus for many of you. And $ 35 for that cotton seedstitch shawl collar? Yes please.

 

Massdrop: Thorogood Boots – $ 226.99 FINAL | Seiko Turtle – $ 229.99 FINAL

Thorogood & Seiko

Massdrop has been on a nice little roll lately. They’ve been cranking out some consistently tempting products at a good clip. The only issue? They’re all final sale. And that stinks. Thorogood boots are made in Wisconsin out of Horween Chromexcel leather. That Seiko Turtle? Gonna be tough to beat that price. Love the shape of the case too. Very substantial feeling. Automatic, hacks and hand winds. Made our best automatic watches under $ 400 feature a while back.

 

Spier & Mackay: New Outerwear Line

Spier & Mackay

Spier & Mackay is jumping into outerwear, eh? And what they’re offering looks mighty fine. Remember, prices on their site are listed in Canadian Dollars. So, it’s gonna cost US customers less thanks to the exchange rate. Big fan of them using more precise chest sizing instead of the ball park S/M/L that many other brands use. This is a pre-order, so, expect the items to start shipping mid September. Charcoal, Navy, and Black are available for all three styles. Camel is also available in the topcoat.

 

Huckberry: 25% off Criquet Polos – $ 59.98 – $ 64.98 ($ 79-$ 84)

Criquet polos

Not your average polo shirt. A deeper, more substantial placket. Flap pocket at the chest. Either slim or standard fit. And? Collar stays for the shirt collar. That’s right, collar stays on a polo. Certainly looks better in person than a standard cheap polo, but even on sale, they can seem a little spendy.

 

DSW: $ 10 off $ 25, $ 20 off $ 99, $ 40 off $ 199 w/ AUGUST2017

DSW Boots & Shoes

Interesting code, being that it’s September. (Word is it expires 9/10?) Anyway, some deals to be had for sure if you like DSW’s house brand lines. Aston Grey has always been a nice budget brand. You can check out a full review of those chukkas right here.

 

BONUS: J. Crew: New Additions to Sale Section

J. Crew

So this is… maybe something. There’s a bunch of new arrivals to their sale section, and while they aren’t running an extra 30% or 40% off sale items code right now, some (not all) of the items are curiously low in price. Maybe a new pricing strategy for J. Crew now that Mickey Drexler has exited? Still, most of us will sit tight and wait for an extra 30%-40% off sale items code.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Nordstrom: Their summer clearance event is still going on. Picks here.
  • GAP: 40% off men’s & women’s styles w/ FORYOU (exclusions apply of course)

Allen Edmonds 2nds Labor Day Sale, JCF Fall Arrivals, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Allen Edmonds: Up to 50% off 2nds / $ 100 off Higgins Mill 1sts

Allen Edmonds

Well that’s early. Allen Edmonds has launched their Labor Day sales, and if you’re in the market for a pair of American Made shoes, then you’re probably pretty happy they jumped the gun. Doesn’t appear to be much on the 1sts side, yet, but the Factory 2nds outlet is getting some solid discounts. As always, with factory 2nds, size, width, and color selection varies by model. Also remember that the $ 10 re-stocking fee still applies for returned 2nds.

 

J. Crew Factory: 40% off new arrivals, up to 60% off the rest

JCF

Not a big sale, but still worth a mention thanks to all the new arrivals that JCF just dropped. Certainly worth waiting until whatever they’ve got in store for the long Labor Day Weekend.

 

Target: Goodfellow & Co. now in most stores? (web launch Sun.)

Goodfellow & Co.

Allow me to get something off my chest. One of the things that I hate the most about our species (myself included when I fall victim to this) is that sometimes we individuals assume our opinion is universally held. We observe something, and… bang. Everyone must think the same way! Even though… that’s not the case. I really, really try not to do that here on this site, and I try to think/write/describe from a neutral perspective. I do my damndest to write for you the readers, and not the writer. If that makes any sense. Now, that said, I haven’t seen such a range of opinions on a brand/item/items in as long as I can remember. Lots of tips have come in on Goodfellow & Co (thank you all). And hand to Zeus they’ve ranged from “Target has NAILED it with this new brand!” to “This is really disappointing, it’s all garbage. Don’t waste your time.” So that’s kinda odd. Now that said, we’ll do our best to get a review of a good chunk of their new goods up as soon as my local slow-poke brick & mortar Target gets the stuff out on the floor. For those who prefer online, the collection launches this Sunday.

 

Massdrop: Orient Mako II – $ 149 | Glycine Moonphase – $ 399 BOTH FINAL

Orient & Glycine

Images above are obviously not to scale (if they were, that Orient would be of Flavor Flav proportions.) Both are final sale here, being that it’s Massdrop. Those Glycine moonphase watches are awfully sharp. Love that moonphase complication too. Automatic movements on both. For the record, the Mako II usually runs around $ 170ish depending on the seller. So, savings. Not massive savings there, but savings.

 

J. Crew: Extra 40% off sale items w/ HELLOSALE

J. Crew

Truth be told, the sale section is pretty darn picked over right now. But, maybe look for J. Crew to re-stock with new sale items in the next few days? Code runs clear through August 31st.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Banana Republic: 40% off reg. priced styles. (But, since F&F just ended, guessing most of us have had our BR fix for a few?)
  • Spier & Mackay: They just released a bunch of merino sweaters. Cardigans and V-necks. Remember, pricing on the Spier & Mackay site is listed in Canadian Dollars.

Nordy Clearance, Spier & Mackay Sitewide Sale, & More – The Thurs. Men’s Sales Handful

Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out. 

 

Nordstrom: Fall Clearance?

Nordstrom

So the Anniversary Sale is done and gone for another year, but there are more than a few tempting items in the Nordstrom Sale section right now. Might this be the building of a fall clearance event of some kind? Even if it’s not, it all ships and returns for free.

 

Spier & Mackay: 20% off Sitewide w/ SUMMER

Spier & Mackay

This is a true clearance. As of post time, Spier & Mackay don’t have their latest batch in yet. So… it’s a bit picked over but there are still some gems in there. Half canvas suits, Australian Merino wool, non functioning buttons (which are easier to tailor) and your first suit or sportcoat ships and returns for free. Remember, prices on their site are in CAD, so, be prepared for some conversions. Full review of their Crosby like “Contemporary Fit” can be found here. For the hopsack sportcoats (which they appear to have gotten a few sizes back in stock of) you can find that review here.

 

Banana Republic: Up to 40% off Select Fall Styles

Banana Republic

The Pick: Rapid Movement Chino in Slim, Straight, or Tapered (athletic?) – $ 68 ($ 98)

No code needed here. Not the most mind-bending of deals, BUT… their new and extremely well reviewed “Rapid Movement Chinos” are finally getting a bit of a discount. They’ve been excluded as a BR Pick since their recent introduction. 90% cotton, 8% poly, 2% spandex. Tons of colors and fits.

 

Cool Material: Biannual Clearance Sale

Cool Material

Technically it’s called “The Purge” sale. Which doesn’t sound so healthy. And it’s quite the mish-mash of gear and goods. But there’s some fun stuff in there for sure. Stock allegedly goes fast, so, know that.

 

J. Crew: 40% off Select / 50% off Final Sale w/ SHOPSUMMER

J. Crew

Note that the “select” items available for the 40% discount is not… extensive. Seems like J. Crew is in between seasons here (as is the rest of the retail world). But their sunglasses are pretty nice, and with that discount, they fall squarely into the not-gas-station-garbage and not-stupidly-expensive-luxury-eyewear category. Also, not sure how their slim merino sweaters made it into the sale section for a half off cut, but… that’ll do nicely. Doesn’t appear to be final sale either?
