10 Best Bets for $75 or Less – Spanish Made Driving Shoes, Super Breathable Chinos, & More

Seventy Five bucks. That’s a lot of money. It’ll get you a couple pairs of Levi’s, a decent casual dinner out, or a couple months at your local gym. Ten picks follow, all for $ 75 or under, with some of them much, much less. Expect these round-ups on a monthly basis. Got a tip on something for under $ 75? Send those in to joe@dappered.com.

 

Jack Erwin Spanish Made Drivers – $ 47.50 FINAL ($ 95)

Jack Erwin Spanish Made Drivers

Somehow, these made in Spain drivers in sand suede have survived the initial (and almost complete?) onslaught on the very first Jack Erwin sale. Still final sale, but all sizes are available at post time.

 

J. Crew Ludlow Slim-Fit Glen Plaid Cotton – $ 98

J. Crew Ludlow Slim-Fit Glen Plaid Cotton

Not under $ 75… yet. But pretty sure these’ll have to go on sale at some point. A true slim, so, if you’re thick through the legs, forget it. Used to be called the Bowery Slim Fit. Now it’s just the Ludlow.

 

Sperry Top-Sider Salt Washed Striper CVO – $ 59.95

Sperry Top-Sider Salt Washed Striper CVO | Dappered.com

Built like a brick outhouse. Substantial, but still flexible canvas. Thick rubber out-soles. Reinforced eyelets and nicely thick laces. Leather accents. Plus, the extra cushioning around the tongue and heel area is a nice touch.

 

Allen Edmonds Cotton Flannel Shoe Bags – $ 3.97 w/ PLUS20 ($ 10)

Allen Edmonds Cotton Flannel Shoe Bags

Under four bucks! Keep the dust off your shoes while storing them in these soft, scratch free flannel bags. Did I mention they’re under four bucks?

 

Banana Republic Core Temp Chinos – $ 49 w/ BRCARDFF ($ 98)

Dappered.com

Just a warning. The above code, BRCARDFF, is good for cardmembers only. But the 50% off Banana Republic Friends and Family sale should go live to most of the public, tomorrow (8/16). Keep an eye out in your inbox for a code. Should be good for 50% off regular priced items. Meanwhile, these pants are outstanding. Head here for the review.

 

NES Classic – $ 59.99 | Super NES Classic – $ 79.99

NES

Looks like the supply problems of these things are over? Boy things have changed. This is pure nostalgia. They’re also, according to reader Brandon D. (thanks for the tip) super fun. Both are smaller in size than the originals, yet come pre-loaded with a ton of games. 30 games come on the classic, 20 on the super. What still hasn’t changed? Your Princess is still in another castle.

 

Black Butte XXX Rexerve (prices vary) 

Black Butte XXX Rexerve

It’s that time of year. It’s the 30th anniversary of Black Butte Porter from Bend Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery, and every year they release a special Imperial version. They’ve done dried fruits and chocolate in the past… but this year? For the 30th anniversary? Straightforward, clean, mean, and a beast at 13.6% ABV. Not overly sweet. Anything but boring. Barrel-aged in eight different types of barrels and, while taste is subjective, I think they nailed it.

 

Old Navy Built-In Flex Moisture-Wicking Pro Polo – $ 18.99

Old Navy Built-In Flex Moisture-Wicking Pro Polo

After 169 reviews, these things are 4.7 / 5 stars. That’s incredible. The internet agrees on NOTHING. Yet, here we are. But don’t take their word for it, take the word of Eric H.: Pique knit, with stretch and also wicking. 58% cotton, 39% polyester, 3% spandex. I’m sure the collar will roll, but time will tell.

 

Made in the USA Notebook by Appointed – $ 24

Made in the USA Notebook by Appointed

Yes this was just mentioned yesterday. But it deserves more pub. Yes, paying two-dozen-dollars for ONE notebook is absurd. But I like this thing more than I like most people. Beautiful, thick cover. Brass spiral bound. Filled with paper that’s graph patterned on one side and blank on the other, and that paper feels good in the hands and under a pen. So yeah. There you have it. Pen not included. Sorry.

 

NEWWHEY Waxed Canvas Duffel – $ 39.96

NEWWHEY Waxed Canvas Duffel

Newwhey? Sounds like a protein powder brand. But it’s not. Reader Jarred M. (and self described “cheap ass”) sent in a tip about these things, and they’re allegedly legit. Waxed canvas, not a total crap-show, and that grey shade is mighty fine looking.

Lili Reinhart, Lea Michele, Anna Faris and More Get Pampered at Producer Jennifer Klein’s Annual Day of Indulgence

It’s the most luxurious day of the year!

Ahead of the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday, Hollywood’s A-listers flocked to producer Jennifer Klein’s home in Brentwood to get some pampering in at her annual Day of Indulgence before hitting the (very hot) red carpet.

Riverdale stars Lili Reinhart, Madelaine Petsch and Camila Mendes stuck close together at the fête and were photographed lugging huge Samsonite suitcases along with LeSportsac weekender bags stuffed full of beauty goodies, including Glossier cosmetics, Giorgio Armani foundation, Rituals candles, perfumes and more.

Inside the bash, 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford stopped by the Elizabeth Arden set-up for a massage treatment, while Scandal stars Darby Stanchfield and Bellamy Young reunited at the Caudalie and MiniLuxe stations for beauty treatments.

Nearby, Lea Michele gushed over Anthropologie‘s latest water bottles while bonding over Broadway with Rachel Bloom. Yara Shahidi had a girls’ day out with her mom Keri and the duo were spotted indulging in treatments by Tatcha and Ren Clean skincare.

“A bunch of the ladies got their brows done,” says a party goer, who spotted Molly Shannon, Rebel Wilson, Leslie Mann, Shay Mitchell and more at Benefit’s brow bar. The stars — including Anna Faris and Allison Janney — also shopped new jeans by Sam Edelman, products by Fresh and Spanx shape wear.

Regina King and Laverne Cox — who also got a reflexology treatment with Pose‘s Mj Rodriguez — were “so happy to finally catch up” and were spotted chatting away on a couch “for a long time,” adds the attendee, who spotted King picking up a cute Cosabella bralette.

Guests sipped on “Little Lemon Diva” drinks served in mini Don Julio bottles, Le Grand Courtage champagne, Taja coconut water, Coffee Bean, Icelandic Glacial water and Suja juice and tucked into Sprinkles‘ new layer cakes, Tcho chocolates, Sugarfina candy and Jeni’s Ice Cream.

How to legally stay in Europe for more than 90 days

ADVERTISEMENT


If you want to travel to Europe, you’ll need to get yourself a visa to make sure you’re legally allowed to roam around, there is just one problem though. They only last for 90 days so if you want to visit for longer, you’ll have to leave and come back, right? There are ways you can stay in Europe for more than 90 days, without breaking the law. Here’s how!

The rule doesn’t apply to all of Europe

There is one simple way of navigating around the 90-day rule, go to somewhere in Europe where the rule doesn’t apply. The 90-day visa applies only to the region in Europe known as the Schengen Area. This covers many countries, mostly those members of the European Union. There are several places in eastern Europe that do the visa does not apply to, countries such as Belarus, Croatia, Romania, Russia, and Ukraine.

Then there are a few other countries such as Cyprus and Albania where it does not apply, and crucially the UK and Ireland do not fall into the Schengen Area. You can hop between these countries following your visit to make sure your trip lasts longer than just three months

Job-seekers visa

If you apply for a job seekers visa, you will be given 6 months grace to try and find yourself a job while in Europe. You’ll need to hold a university degree, but this will allow you to live in Europe for up to six months while searching for a job. You’ll need to apply for this visa in advance of entering the region though, so make sure if you’re planning on going for longer, or even staying forever, that you apply well in advance.

Working holiday visa

If you want to travel to Europe to soak up some of the cultures and are planning on an extended stay, you’ll probably need to pick up some work to make sure you can continue to fund important things like food and shelter. You can apply for a working holiday visa which will allow you to stay but will have to prove that you have enough savings to sustain yourself should you fail to get a job. You’ll need to have around $ 5,000 in the bank to prove that you are serious about things. Several countries, such as Italy, Sweden, or France offer long-term visas that allow you to stay there for an extended period of time as long as you have a job to go to when you get there.

Infinite loop

The Schengen Area requires you to leave after 90 days and will take 180 days to reset, allowing you to renew a new 90-day visa. During this time you can stay in the UK for 90 days then head to the Balkan region for another 90 then you’ll be able to re-enter the Schengen Area. You can continue to do this for as long as you want or can afford.

If you really want to visit Europe for more than 90 days without breaking the law there are a few things you can do to make sure you are there legally. There are more places in Europe than just the Schengen Area, so you can explore those regions whole you are doing your 180-day visa refresh. With this knowledge, you can hang out in Europe as long as your budget will allow you, as long as you don’t mind moving around occasionally.

Meet the Author Advocating for More Black Stay-At-Home Dads

Let’s face it, there are many social constructs changing right now, but a stay-at-home dad is not one of them. However, Jonathan Oliver and his wife, a general cardiologist, decided very early on they would make their own relationship rules.

“We knew that given her career path she would want to work full time and practice medicine so I would be the one to stay home and raise our children,” said Oliver. “Surprisingly, it wasn’t a major decision or something we had to think about for a prolonged amount of time. It just made sense. We now have two beautiful daughters, Journey, 3, and Justice, 3 months. I want to change the stereotype that black men are deadbeat dads. Truthfully, there are a lot of black males who are in their families and in their communities doing the exact same thing that I’m doing. But it’s easier for media to portray the stereotype instead of acknowledging the growth and the positive impact that black men make daily.”

Now, through Oliver’s latest book “Joy In The Journey: 1st Year Chronicles From A Stay At Home Dad,” and coaching practice, Higher Enlightenment, he’s aiming to change the conversation about gender roles and uplift men, especially black men, to become more of their authentic selves. “I want to give all stay-at-home parents, particularly fathers, the information, confidence, and encouragement to fully engage in the parenting process, their marriages, and their communities. I also want people to realize there is a shift occurring and more men are transitioning to the homemaker role than ever before. We as men are more than capable and are wanting and willing to raise our children with the support and encouragement of other parents.”

Below, he details his journey from feeling isolated as a stay-at-home dad to authoring a book and creating a space for community and connection for black men.

Jonathan Oliver

(Photo credit: Jonathan Oliver.com)

Stay-at-home dads face a lot of stereotypes—many of them are negative. What stereotypes are you trying to change?

One stereotype is that men want to be alone. It’s generally lonely being a stay-at-home parent, but it’s even lonelier when you are a male. Now, add being a black male on top of that and now it’s extremely lonely. So I want to connect with other parents, not only for the social skills and development of my daughter but also to have a conversation with an adult who is experiencing what I’m experiencing as a parent.

Another thing people get wrong is that men can’t stay at home or they don’t want to stay at home and raise their children. I’ve spoken with many fathers that wish they could stay home and take care of their child. I have met many people that have questioned if I know what I’m doing. Even when we shared it with our family that we were having our first child, the first question was who is going to take care of the baby? My wife told them it would be me and they looked incredulous because I was a man.

What was the aha moment that inspired you to write the book?

I felt very lonely as a stay-at-home dad. Plus, we moved shortly after the birth of our first daughter to a new city where we knew no one. So to stay connected to myself and to my thoughts and to stay purposeful, I started writing a weekly column about my “adventures” as a stay-at-home dad. It also gave me the ability to give back to other fathers who may be in my shoes. After the first year, I had written 52 columns so I decided to combine those columns into a book and share my experience and what I had learned.

(Jonathan Oliver)

During your first year as a stay-at-home dad, what were you the most surprised to learn about yourself?

I was surprised that I could experience postpartum depression. My life before children consisted of a lot of travel and interacting with thousands of people in a week. So to go from always moving and interacting with different people to being at home alone with an infant that can’t speak was very difficult for me. Add in that I knew no one in our new city, and no one looked like me or was doing what I was doing was very isolating and led me to be depressed.

What’s your favorite chapter and why?

Chapter one: A New Frontier. I love that chapter because it discusses the concept of the importance of being a great husband before focusing on being a great father. Before I have an imaginary tea party or play ball with my daughter, it’s important for her to see that I love her mother. Once my daughter knows and feels, and senses that her mother is loved by her father she now knows she is in a safe environment and this allows her to grow and thrive. Now that she is almost 3, it’s such a joy to see her want to join in a hug when she sees me hugging and kissing her mother. She mimics my love for her mother. Realizing this took away the pressure of being a “perfect parent” and helped me to understand that my first job is to be a good husband to my wife.

Drag Race Winner Violet Chachki Wants More Queer Visibility in Mainstream Fashion

Violet Chachki—burlesque bombshell, corset queen and champion of Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race—has one thing to say about the fashion industry and its long-held conviction of gender binary representation: the LGBTQ+ community should also be visible.

In today’s society where the straights are slowly becoming the minority as people are beginning to realize that gender is a fluid concept, mainstream fashion has a lot of reorienting to do given its ingrained beliefs on sexuality and attraction. Chachki, who recently starred in Prada’s Neon Dream ad campaign, says it is important, if not imperative, for big brands to allow queer artists space in the mainstream sphere.

“It’s really great to see that brands are recognizing what it means to be a queer artist these days, how that looks politically, [and letting me] take up space as a queer person. Especially now, it’s more important to have visibility in mainstream brands and marketing,” she told Out magazine.

A post shared by Violet Chachki (@violetchachki) on

Chachki has also modeled and walked for Moschino this year in Milan, sporting a “tandem tux” by Jeremy Scott. In an interview with Vogue, Chachki shared similar sentiments on queer visibility in the fashion industry and what it was like to walk for Moschino. “To me that’s what the show was—strength! It’s very important to have visual representation, to show that queers are important, queers are powerful, queers are beautiful, queers are valid, and you can’t erase us,” she said.

Huckberry: New Timex Shop (including some Todd Snyder Models)

Timex

Hat tip to reader Jean T. for sending in the heads up about this. Looks like Huckberry just opened up a new Timex shop and there’s a bunch of Todd Snyder models in there. Not all of them are on discount though, but one of them that is is the Marlin. Depending on what sort of coupon code you got (or didn’t get) in your paper catalog, it might be cheaper to buy through Todd Snyder… BUT… Huckberry has been known to run sales. So it’s worth keeping an eye on for sure.

 

Also worth a mention:

  • Best Made Co: Free Shipping through Sunday 8/5.
  • Sierra Trading Post: They’re running a big summer clearance event right now. Sizes and selection feel super scattered.
  • Domestic Domestic: They’ve got a bunch of items on sale including Wolverines and some Red Wings. It’s all final sale though.

Since becoming a mother to a son, I need feminism more than ever

Since becoming a mother to a son, I need feminism more than ever


Since becoming a mother to a son, I need feminism more than ever

My feminism started at home, following a rapid discovery of what I did not want for myself.

I often viewed the tasks relegated to women in my family as disempowering and self-sacrificial. The concept of fairness was practically moot: Why should I do the dishes, sweep, and mop daily when my brother gets to keep playing video games and watching TV? I saw how women were treated in relationships, and I quickly learned that boys and girls are seen differently in this world.  I then molded my own life around the version of reality I came to prefer: Women are equal to men and we deserve for our labor to be honored and shared.

Now, as I enter my mid-twenties and my son is about to celebrate his first year on earth, I ponder how feminism will influence my child. How I will instill these lifelong lessons that begin in the home?

When we become mothers, our focus quickly shifts to be all about the child. We think less about ourselves, our friends, our hobbies, and our relationships (some of us become single mothers, and that’s a whole other story altogether). It’s as if we are altered versions of ourselves; parts of our identities go on the back burner while child rearing remains at the forefront of our minds.

But I will maintain and prioritize the identity of “feminist,” for my son and for myself.

Months before my son even arrived, I began worrying, “What can I teach a boy?” I thought about what the world could stand to gain or lose from someone assigned male at birth—yet another boy who will become a man in a male-dominated, unequal, increasingly violent world for women, femme individuals, and gender nonconforming folks. Recent legislation blocking abortion and birth control access, as well as anti-LGBTQ sentiments from bigots who are emboldened by Trump made me intensely uneasy.  Still, despite out society’s flaws and our world’s ills, I was full of positivity. I was bringing in a new soul who would experience life with guidance from me and my partner.

I felt small in the grander scope, but within my scope, I knew I had the power to mold my son into a person who welcomes a feminist future.

My son is the center of my universe, but I want to be careful not to center him here. Instead, we me must focus on how we raise boys, and how we can insist on doing things differently than our parents. Most of the badass women I am thankful to know had mothers who were hard on them—like, really, really hard on them. My mother, too, held me accountable for my actions if I failed to meet my responsibilities. Meanwhile, my brother was more easily forgiven if he messed up. I was responsible for my own safety. And if my mom wasn’t around, I was responsible for my brother’s safety, too. I had to learn to take care of my family and our home. He did not.

This resulted in my mother instilling a sense of responsibility in me, and not in my brother.

Admittedly, I am still in the thick of it as I learn to be a mother—and a mother to a son—during this first year of parenthood. But I know that both my son and I desperately need feminism because, to be frank, boys need to learn how to do shit for themselves. They should not expect girls to perform labor for them, emotionally or physically.

There are far too many men who continue to rely on women for their day-to-day basic needs. We need to raise our sons to both value and learn how to complete household chores, daily cooking, and other seemingly menial tasks typically relegated to women or whoever “mom” is. And that’s just scratching the surface of what we need to teach our sons. That’s only part of why I need feminism more now that I am raising a little boy. Our gender-obsessed and gender-divided society must change into a more equal and just one, and part of that work starts, as always, in the home.

9 Tips to Up Your Appointment Game for a More Likely Sale

Finding new leads as a contractor can be a tricky business. There are many ways you can up your marketing game during the search process, but the best way to secure a sale is by making a great first impression. The first appointment you have with potential leads will set the stage for your business relationship, so making sure to wow new clients during this meeting is a must. Here are 9 of our top tips to help you up your appointment game for a more likely sale.

Hiring a contractor

Get your ethos straight

The number one rule of marketing is knowing your business inside out. If you can pinpoint and communicate the key aspects of your company to potential clients, your confidence will rub off on them and they will be more likely to strike a deal with you.

Create a memorable brand

Quality branding is essential for any business, regardless of industry or specialty, because a memorable brand will stick in the minds of potential clients. Before reaching out to new clients, make sure you are happy with your logo and tagline – and make sure they are memorable for the right reasons.

Come prepared

Once you have decided on an impactful and quality logo, invest a bit of time and money into business cards, stationery, and pamphlets that clearly showcase your brand in the best possible light. Don’t forget to bring along these materials to an initial appointment with new clients – they will be impressed by your preparedness and the quality of your brand.

Keep it clear

When quoting prices and filling out information for flyers, make sure that your information is correct and current. In particular, check that your marketing materials all have an updated pricing structure and current contact information, list your most recent qualifications and projects. Don’t forget to include links to any website or social media accounts for your business – these are a fantastic marketing and communication tool for any 21st century business.

Stay organized

When the date for your first appointment with a client finally rolls around, make sure you come to the meeting prepared. Having all your materials sorted, collated, and ready to go will help create that fantastic first impression you should be striving for. Remembering the little things like a calculator, scrap paper, and extra pens and pencils will help with your organization and save you from getting flustered during your appointment.

Stick to a schedule

As any business owner knows, client meetings can easily get off track and run on – wasting both your time and the time of your clients. By staying focused and keeping to a predetermined schedule, you can avoid too many off-topic discussions and tangents. Wear a watch or discreetly check your phone to keep things moving along, but try not to appear aloof or uninterested in your clients’ questions and concerns. After all, the customer is always right!

Be a professional

While this point is certainly true for initial appointments with potential leads, we always recommend keeping a positive and professional relationship with your clients. This means never badmouthing other companies, even if a client initiates the conversation or asks your personal opinion about a particular professional or business. You can politely deflect these kinds of interactions by referring back to your own skills and avoid any ill-will with other pros in the future.

Be positive

Perhaps one of the most important points to remember during your first meeting with potential clients is to stay positive. Of course, this is often easier said than done for passionate business owners who are the first to point out their own faults. By highlighting your best traits and trying not to self-deprecate, you will come across as confident and self-assured.

Above all, be honest

Positivity goes a long way towards securing a sale, but honesty is even more valuable to many clients. If you have made mistakes in the past that get brought up in your appointments, don’t lie about them. Instead, think of them as learning experiences: how have you grown since then? What aspects of your business have you changed to prevent these mistakes from happening again? If you can answer these kinds of questions, you will be prepared for just about anything with any future sales you make.

More Than 140 Larry Nassar Sexual Abuse Survivors Honored With ESPY Courage Award

(LOS ANGELES) — More than 140 survivors of sexual abuse by a former team doctor for USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University joined hands on stage to be honored with the Arthur Ashe Award for Courage at the ESPYs.

The women who spoke out against the abuse by Larry Nassar stood together Wednesday night in a powerful and solemn closing to the show highlighting the past year’s top athletes and moments in sports.

Gymnast Aly Raisman, softball player Tiffany Thomas Lopez and gymnast Sarah Klein, who said she was Nassar’s first victim 30 years ago, took turns speaking. Klein chided the U.S. Olympic Committee, USA Gymnastics and Michigan State for placing “money and medals above the safety of child athletes.”

Olympic snowboarding champion Chloe Kim won a leading three ESPYs, including best female athlete, while Alex Ovechkin claimed best male athlete.

Kim had tears in her eyes as she listened to the Arthur Ashe recipients.

“We must start caring about children’s safety more than we care about adults’ reputations,” Klein said. “If we can just give one person the courage to use their voice, this is worth it.”

Raisman added, “For too long we were ignored. It could have been avoided. All we needed was one adult to have the integrity to stand between us and Larry Nassar.”

The audience gave the group a prolonged standing ovation and remained on its feet while the women spoke.

Ovechkin joined Roger Federer and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White as double winners. Ovechkin was in Russia with his wife, Nastya, who is 8½ months pregnant.

Newly retired racecar driver Danica Patrick became the first woman to host the show at the Microsoft Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Her opening monologue mostly fell flat, with athletes sitting stone-faced or wincing at many of the jokes.

Kim took female athlete honors over Olympic skier Mikaela Shiffrin, WNBA player Sylvia Fowles and soccer player Julie Ertz.

“This year has been filled with so many incredible memories I will hold onto the rest of my life,” Kim said as she held the silver trophy. “I really want to thank my family. They’ve sacrificed so much for me.”

Kim also claimed trophies for best female Olympian and female action sports athlete. At the Pyeongchang Games in February, she became the youngest to win a snowboarding medal when the then-17-year-old claimed gold in halfpipe.

Ovechkin, who led the Washington Capitals to their first Stanley Cup championship, also won for best NHL player. He beat out Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and fellow first-time nominees Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros and James Harden of the Houston Rockets for male athlete.

Federer’s five-set victory at the Australian Open in January for his 20th Grand Slam singles title earned honors for record-breaking performance and he also received best male tennis player.

White won best Olympic moment with his final-run performance in South Korea featuring back-to-back 1440s to take gold, and best male Olympian.

The Astros were honored as best team for winning the franchise’s first World Series.

LeBron James, soon to be starring across the street at Staples Center with the Los Angeles Lakers, won best NBA player for the third straight year on his 14th consecutive nomination in the category.

Brady claimed best NFL player, while Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels won MLB player.

On a big night for Olympians, the U.S. women’s hockey team earned best game honors for their shootout victory over Canada in the gold-medal game in South Korea.

Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz earned breakthrough athlete honors.

Quarterback Nick Foles received the championship performance trophy for leading the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl title.

The Minnesota Vikings earned best moment honors for beating the New Orleans Saints on the last play of the NFL championship game.

Notre Dame’s Arike Ogunbowale won in the best play category for hitting a buzzer-beater in the NCAA women’s title game.

The best coach award was given posthumously to Aaron Feis, Scott Beigel and Chris Hixon, all of whom died in the mass shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Former quarterback Jim Kelly received the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance for his struggle with jaw cancer. Fellow NFL Hall of Famers Dan Marino and John Elway presented Kelly with the honor.

UPDATE: 27 more people sickened by Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal, retailers still selling it

A month after a voluntary recall was first issued, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says another 27 people have fallen ill in 19 states after eating Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal tied to a salmonella outbreak.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration says the contaminated cereal can still be found for sale at some retailers.

RELATED: Recall alert: Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon sold at grocery stores

100 cases now tied to Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal recall

The CDC has reiterated its call for people to stop eating the cereal and for stores to stop selling it. One hundred case have now been tied to the June 14 recall of an estimated 1.3 million cases of Honey Smacks cereal.

In fact, two more states have reported outbreaks — Florida and Colorado. That brings the state count up to 33. You can see a map that shows all states where people have been sickened by the cereal here.

As a reminder, the recall involves 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal with the following UPC codes:

kellogg recall cereal UPC

If you already have any of these products at home, do not eat them. Throw the cereal away and visit Kelloggs.com/HoneySmacksRecall for info on getting a full refund.

According to CNBC, the recall was initially prompted by 60 reports Kellogg Company received from the FDA and CDC about illnesses related to the cereal.

The third-party manufacturing facility that made the cereal has stopped production.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause symptoms such as fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, and may even be fatal in young children, frail or elderly people. In rare cases, Salmonella can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis if it gets into the bloodstream.

The remarks came during a town hall that generated a ton of media coverage — apparently, everyone assumed, this means HBO will now be forced to play a volume game which may or may not affect the quality of the content.

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

There’s a Finance Podcast for the Ladies Hosted by Angela Yee and More

We can all attest to being in a financial rut at some point in our lives. Well, if you are still there, three amazing ladies have teamed up to create a podcast for you. Turn your attention to Exhibit A: Color Full Lives hosted by, The Breakfast Club’s radio co-host Angela Yee, My Fab Finance’s Tonya Rapley, who has graced our cover and Call Your Girlfriend podcast host, Aminatou Sow. These women are having the very uncomfortable conversations around finance that will hopefully help us all get in formation.

One conversation, of many, took place during this year’s 2018 Essence Festival panel, “Candid Finance Conversation with StateFarm.” The ladies talked very candidly about their own journeys to financial freedom while sharing tips with the audience, helping us all understand why it’s so important to be financially fit.

“I wanted to be able to empower myself and empower others through conversations likes these,” said Yee in a recent post from Essence. The radio personality also owns a Brooklyn juice bar and hosts her own podcast, Lip Service. “I used to worry about things like retirement and thinking I had to wait until I had a husband to buy a house. I was able to go ahead and become a homeowner on my own.”

“If money isn’t right then things don’t move. Money gives you that peace of mind and helps you to plan for future generations whether that’s your kids, nieces, nephews, god kids, neighbors, whoever,” Rapley shared with Essence.

The overarching theme for the podcast is to empower listeners with the blueprint for financial well-being and additionally, Rapley shares these tips daily through her platform, My Fab Finance, a personal finance site dedicated to helping millennial women change their money story and as she states, become their own fabulous.

“We’re just three women figuring it out just like you,” added Sow. “We’re wanting to keep ourselves accountable and stay accountable to each other, buy homes, pay off debt, learn how to invest.”

Partners of Newly Diagnosed Diabetes Patients More Likely to Adopt Healthy Behaviors

OAKLAND, Calif. — Partners of people with newly diagnosed diabetes are more likely to improve their health behaviors than partners of people without the disease, according to a large new Kaiser Permanente study published today in Annals of Family Medicine.

“When a person is diagnosed with diabetes it could be a ‘teachable moment’ to encourage healthy lifestyles and improve health habits for the whole family, as well as an opportunity to reduce their risk of developing diabetes,” said study lead author Julie Schmittdiel, PhD, research scientist with the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research.

Julie Schmittdiel, PhD

Julie Schmittdiel, PhD

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 30.3 million Americans have diabetes, a chronic disease characterized by high blood sugar levels. The treatment of type 2 diabetes typically begins with lifestyle modifications, as well as medication to lower blood sugar levels as needed.

The study, “Influence of a New Diabetes Diagnosis on the Health Behaviors of the Patient’s Partner,” reviewed the electronic health records of more than 180,000 co-residing couples who were members of Kaiser Permanente in Northern California from 2007 to 2011.

The researchers matched each person newly diagnosed with diabetes and their co-residing partner with five persons without diabetes and their co-residing partners, and assessed changes in eight health behaviors for a year pre­- and post-diagnosis.

Partners of people with type 2 diabetes were about 50 percent more likely to take a weight management class, and they were 25 percent more likely to take smoking cessation medication, compared to similar partners of people without type 2 diabetes. The likelihood that partners of people with diabetes would participate in other health behaviors — glucose screening, clinically meaningful weight loss, lipid screening, influenza vaccination and blood pressure screening — was between 2 and 7 percent higher, when compared to partners of people without diabetes.

“This is one of the first studies to look at how other people in a household might be changing their behaviors in response to a partner’s diabetes diagnosis,” Schmittdiel said. “We believe our findings highlight the need for a new focus on health risk interventions not just for individuals, but for their families and social networks.”

Diabetes is an active area of study for Kaiser Permanente Research. Scientists across the organization have used Kaiser Permanente’s rich, comprehensive, longitudinal data to advance understanding of risk, improving patient outcomes, and translating research findings into policy and practice. Kaiser Permanente has published more than 840 articles related to diabetes over the past decade and, together, the studies have been cited by other researchers nearly 40,000 times.

This study was supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

In addition to Schmittdiel, co-authors of the study were Sara R. Adams, MPH, Kaiser Permanente Division of Research; Solveig A. Cunningham, PhD, Jannie Nielsen, PhD, and Mohammed K. Ali, MBChB, Hubert Department of Global Health, Emory University.

Don’t Trust Dollar Stores, You May Be Paying More for Less

Dollar Tree and other discount chains have been popping up in bulk around the country and making a mint in recent years. The three largest dollar-store chains have opened more than 1,800 stores in 2017 alone, giving consumers convenient access to shop on a budget. But some experts warn that dollar-store shoppers looking for a good deal may be getting swindled.

According to a recent article by The Guardian, dollar store patrons often pay more than wealthier consumers who shop in bulk at stores like Costco and Walmart. Here’s how The Guardian breaks down the cost of buying basic goods, like flour and milk, in a dollar store versus a supermarket or big retailer.

The bags of flour at a Dollar Store just south of San Francisco cost only $ 1, but they also only weigh two pounds. Most bags in the supermarket are five pounds, and can be scored for less than $ 2.50 at cavernous retailers like Walmart or Costco – though these require time and, often, a car to access.

 

Dollar store raisins are only 4.5 ounces. At a big box store, however, 72 ounces of raisins cost $ 10.50 – meaning dollar store customers are paying 52% more.

 

Cartons of milk at a dollar store are only 16 ounces – which prorates to $ 8 per gallon, more than what you would pay for even top-of-the line milk at Whole Foods.

 

Deep-discount retailers have flourished in recent decades, popping up like mushrooms in the depressed locales big-box stores economically eviscerated in the decades before.

On the other hand, it is more cost-effective to buy certain items, like toys, greeting cards, and hangers, at a dollar store. Plus, they offer cheaper products than many local liquor and convenience stores. However, these discount stores can induce mindless shopping since many customers resort to simply counting the number of items in their cart rather than researching to be sure that they’re really getting a deal on each product. As a result, Dollar Tree, which acquired Family Dollar in 2014, now operates over 14,000 locations in the U.S. and Canada and earns a whopping $ 20.7 billion a year. So who’s really getting a bang for their buck?

Teddy Geiger Feels ‘More Open’ After Her Transition

Teddy Geiger opened up about her transition and the hardships she faced while struggling with her gender identity.

“I just feel more open,” Geiger, 29, told The New York Times in a profile published on Thursday, July 5. “Because I’m willing to talk about everything now, people are then more open with me.”

She continued: “There’s no longer this piece of me back there saying, ‘Don’t go there.’ I used to find that I’d sing songs and think, ‘Ooh, it sounds like I’m talking about that stuff, and I don’t want to talk about that stuff.’ But it was just coming out.”

Geiger struggled as a teenager thrust into the spotlight, not understanding her identity disconnect. “I was going through adolescence and having sex for the first time, but it was in this really weird context,” the “For You I Will” singer explained. “I didn’t have a real support group.”

The songwriter retreated from the business for a while before her 21st birthday, but she was met with crippling anxiety when she moved to California from New York. Geiger said she relied on cigarettes and marijuana — two packs and a half-ounce of weed a day — to cope. Obsessive-compulsive behaviors, such as maintaining her nails, also took over. “It was the only femininity that I was expressing, so I wanted it to be so perfect,” she told The New York Times. “It was the only thing I could control.”

In September 2017, Geiger participated in a monthlong treatment program for anxiety and to “get to the bottom of the gender thing.” She exited the program prepared to embrace her true identity and announced her transition in October of that year.

“I can remember back to being 5 and looking in the mirror, feeling like a girl and wanting that,” she noted. “But growing up in Rochester, there were limited resources. I’d never met a trans person before.” Geiger mentioned that she didn’t know transgender people existed until she was in her 20s.

Shawn Mendes, who frequently collaborates with Geiger and has been publicly supportive of her transition, recalled meeting up with her to begin working on his self-titled album after she completed treatment. “It was the first time I ever saw her sober,” the 19-year-old singer said. “She was like Teddy, but on steroids. There was this electricity running through her.”

Why hoedown? Too much for a handful. Enjoy the long weekend fellas… that is, if you’re lucky enough to get some time off.

 

J.C.F.: 50% off Most Everything + Extra 20% off & Free Ship w/ SUPERSTAR

J. Crew Factory

What was an extra 15% off to start the week has now jumped to an additional 20% off AND you get free shipping too. Suits & Sportcoats aren’t getting the cut, but it seems like the rest of J. Crew Factory’s basics are in fact getting this half off PLUS an additional 20% off that sale price. UPDATE: Sorry fellas, looks like the shorts aren’t getting the extra 20% off cut. But they are shipping for free.

 

Spier and Mackay: 15% off all regular priced suits/sportcoats/trousers w/ JULY4th

One of the best values in suits and sportcoats just got even better. Yes, sizes are scattered since it’s Spier, but it’s worth a look if you’re in the market for a new suit or sportcoat. Suits with the code now start at $ 279, and sportcoats now start at $ 169. Not bad for half canvas and bemberg linings. Runs clear through Sunday July 8th. Head here for a review of their slim fit, and here for a review of the contemporary fit.

 

Massdrop (or Amazon) Orient Mako II – $ 129.99

Orient Mako II

Massdrop has the Hacking and Hand Winding Orient Mako II diver for $ 129.99 right now… but so does Amazon. And with Amazon, it ships immediately (no waiting for the pre-order) AND it’s not final sale. Sold direct by Amazon at post time too. So… yeah. You’ll want to go with Amazon over Massdrop this time for sure.

 

GAP: 40% off Everything w/ GO4th + Extra 10% off & Free Ship w/ MOREFUN

GAP

Appears to be exclusion free? I believe? Just a reminder about the math. There are two codes here, but 40% off and then an additional 10% off does NOT equal 50% off. That extra 10% comes off the marked down price. So, if your purchase is $ 100, that’s 100 x .6 = $ 60, and then $ 60 x .9 = $ 54. Close to 50% off, but not quite.

 

J. Crew: 30% off Select Styles w/ ALLSTARExtra 20% off Select w/ THESKIMM

J. Crew

In case you missed it Sunday. There’s also a twenty dollar off $ 100 code JCSM18 floating about, but you can only use two codes at a time. They should stack though, depending on exclusions. More info over here.

 

Massdrop: Junghans Max Bill Auto. Watch – $ 729.99 FINAL

Junghans Max Bill Auto. Watch

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, being that it’s Massdrop.

 

Target: 20% off Clothes w/ JULY4

Target

Just a warning. Goodfellow & Co seems to fit a little wonky for some guys. There can be quite a gap between sizes. So, lucky you if it fits great off the rack. Code expires at the end of the day on Wednesday.

 

Todd Snyder: Further additions/reductions to Sale & Clearance

Todd Snyder

Just a warning… sizes are scattered at best. And in the clearance section there’s a few final sale items. So be careful with those. No returns for the final sale stuff.

 

Todd Snyder Part Deux: New Timex Marlin Blackout – $ 199

Timex Marlin Blackout

Not on sale and almost certainly gonna sell out. Still tiny. Still hand wound. Head here for a review of the silver version. Big thanks to Aaron K for the tip!

 

Brooks Bros: Up to 40% off Select Spring & Summer Styles

Brooks Brothers

Great for those of us who love Brooks Brothers… yet don’t usually operate on a Brooks Brothers budget. Personally, I’m a big fan of their Regent fit sportcoats. Especially when on double sale like this.

 

Huckberry: Astorflex Chelsea Boots in Sabbia (neutral) or Cuoio – $ 90 ($ 180)

Astorflex Chelsea

Still half off. Still made in Italy, still super comfortable, still shipping and returning for free. And still quite a few sizes left.

 

Allen Edmonds: 40% off Select Bourbon & Merlot

Allen Edmonds

Still going on. Still a hell of a deal. Huge fan of the Allen Edmonds Merlot shade around these parts (see a full How to Wear it for their Merlot McAllisters here). Also know that the Bourbon shade can be a bit divisive. Some people LOVE it. Some think it can look a little striped and/or greenish in some lights. Anyway, $ 249 is a hell of a price for timeless Allen Edmonds first quality shoes. Deal runs clear through July 22nd.

 

UNIQLO: Select 4th of July Deals & Free Shipping No Min!

UNIQLO

Feels like it’s a more extensive promotions section for the 4th of July weekend. And? Lots of their warm weather stuff is on sale. Like airism t-shirts and boxer briefs. They’re an inexpensive choice for many.

 

Cole Haan: Extra 40% off Sale Items w/ EXTRA40

Cole Haan

Lots of snobs like to rag on Cole Haan, but many guys have had some measure of success with the brand. Is full price too steep? Of course. But this stuff is already on sale AND its getting an extra 40% off. So, not bad. Careful though… lots of final sale here. No returns or exchanges on that stuff. So click wisely.

 

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is Coming

Nordstrom

Another reminder before you get sloshed on cheap beer and go hog wild with your credit card this weekend. Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale is easily one of, if not the most anticipated sale of the year. Head here for what it looked like last year. If you’re a Nordstrom card-member, you get early access from July 12th – 19th. The sale goes live to the general public on the 20th. And yes, we’ll have our favorites from the sale ready to go for you to peruse.

Why males are more at risk than females for neurodevelopmental disorders

Researchers have recently begun to realize that biological sex plays a key role in disease risk. Sex plays a role in hypertension, diabetes, arthritis — and in many neurological and psychiatric disorders. Depression and anxiety affect females more, while neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism spectrum disorders, early onset schizophrenia, and attention deficit hyperactivity, affect more males. Males are also more sensitive to prenatal insults, such as gestational stress, maternal infection and drug exposure.

Books coming out this week: <em>The Intermission,</em> <em>The Banker’s Wife,</em> and more

Hello and welcome to Monday, which is really sort of like a Thursday this week, because Wednesday is the Fourth of July, making Tuesday like a Friday! You get all of that? Even if you didn’t quick track, it’s fine. Because we’re celebrating a holiday in the middle of the week, and you know what that means: tons of food, family, friends, and rest and relaxation. With some extra time off, now is the perfect time to dip into your TBR pile — and add some of the books coming out this week to it.

But first, I’m excited to announce that our July pick for the HG Book Club is Social Creature by Tara Isabella Burton! Pick up your copy and dive right in, because we’ll post the first round of questions on Friday, July 6th. This thriller, which has been described as a modern day version of The Talented Mr. Ripley, is the perfect book to start during the holiday week. Show us where you’re reading with #HGBookClub!

And now, here are eight books coming out this week that you don’t want to miss.

1. The Intermission by Elyssa Friedland, out July 3rd

We all know that relationships aren’t always what they seem on the outside. But The Intermission takes things a step further, going inside of a marriage that’s on the rocks. It’s about Jonathan and Cass, a husband and wife that decide to take a six-month break from their relationship to see if it’s what they really want. As we all know, there are two sides to every story. And through alternating perspectives, The Intermission delivers both.

2. The Banker’s Wife by Cristina Alger, out July 3rd

G.P. Putnam’s Sons

When Annabel loses her husband Matthew, a banker, in a plane crash, she begins desperately searching for answers. Marina, a journalist mourning the loss of her editor and mentor, finds information that could implicate some of the world’s most powerful men in finance. With two strong female characters at the helm, The Banker’s Wife is one of the best thrillers you’ll read all summer.

3. Safe Houses by Dan Fesperman, out July 3rd

Knopf Publishing Group

Speaking of strong female leads, Safe Houses has three of them, banding together against men who abuse their power. This murder mystery/espionage thriller hybrid unfolds across two timelines. In 1979, Helen Abell, the woman who oversees CIA safe houses in Berlin, overhears a conversation and decides to expose dark secrets. And in 2014, her son has murdered her and her husband. You won’t be able to put this one down.

4. Can You Tolerate This? by Ashleigh Young, out July 3rd

Can You Tolerate This? is a compelling combination of personal essays about coming of age in New Zealand and observational historical essays. Don’t miss this opportunity to get to know Ashleigh Young and the world around her.

5. Still Water by Amy Stuart, out July 3rd

If you loved Still Mine, you don’t want to miss Still Water. When a woman named Sally and her son go missing, Claire pretends to be a friend of Sally’s to get to the bottom of what really happened. Let’s just say that everyone is hiding WAY more secrets than you’ll expect. We loved getting to know more about Claire and Malcom, and we’re crossing our fingers for a third installment.

6. How to Be Famous by Caitlin Moran, out July 3rd

Harper

Picking up a few years in the future after How to Build a Girl ends, How to Be Famous is set in 1994. Johanna, a rock journalist, is in love with John, her best friend who has made it big in the music world. So she writes a column under the name Dolly Wilde about fame, hoping to catch his attention and make him feel understood. Though it’s set in the ‘90s, with themes of consent and slut shaming, How to Be Famous rings true in our current #MeToo era. And it’s just as witty and gritty as Caitlin Moran fans can expect.

7. The Ruin by Dervla McTiernan, out July 3rd

Penguin Books

The list of books coming out this week is heavy on thrillers, and we have one more addictive one for you. The Ruin, set in Ireland, follows detective Cormac Reilly as he reopens an investigation from 20 years ago. He’s determined to connect Hilaria Blake’s overdose in the past to her son Jack’s recent death. Get invested now, because there are at least two more Cormac Reilly books coming in the future.

8. Trickster Feminism by Anne Waldman, out July 3rd

If that title doesn’t pull you in, we don’t know what will. Anne Waldman’s Trickster Feminism is the poetry of the resistance, and you need this collection on your bookshelf.

Happy reading, and happy Fourth of July!

BET Genius Talks: Secrets to Success from Yvonne Orji, T.I., Charles King, and More

BET recently wrapped up their 18th annual award show over the weekend and presented a series of Genius Talks that were knowledgeable, insightful, and some, downright funny. Peep the highlights below.

Charles King and Terry Crews

During the 60 seconds with a Genius segment sponsored by AT&T, Crews asks King, what advice do you have for a young actor who wants to get put on? “Hone your craft, whether you’re doing local theater, whether you’re studying at school with an acting coach, whether you’re shooting videos with your friends, practice, practice, practice, practice.”

Yvonne Orji and Jemele Hill

We tweeted this, and the numbers jumped so we know the folks at home were feelin’ it. Between Orji’s extreme comic relief, that woman is beyond funny, she said something that completely stood out and led to gasps from the audience, “Never let your talent or your gifts take you to a place that your character can’t keep you.”

Let that sink in.

Mona Scott-Young and Jemele Hill

Scott-Young’s major keys:

  • “The first step is visualizing what you want to accomplish and the next step is actually taking the step.”
  • “If you’re focused, diligent, committed and consistent and the talent is there, then (your success) is inevitable.”

Omari Hardwick and Jemele Hill

Sometimes the no, will get you to the yes.

Hill asked Hardwick, ‘During your lowest point, what was your big break?’ “It was either a backup of firefighting, then the day that I said no to the fire department, which I had passed all the tests to be admitted on, hours later after saying no to LA city fire department … I got a call that Spike Lee was gone be my first boss in life.”

T.I. and Jemele Hill

Stand your ground.

When Hill asked Tip about the Super Bowl coming to Atlanta, T.I.’s response was one for the records. “I have made a conscious decision not to support the NFL this year. I think there’s a violation of constitutional rights that’s being implemented to minority players who choose to have a peaceful silent protest.”

Enough said.

Monday Sales Tripod – Allen Edmonds 1st Quality for $249, J. Crew Factory Mega Clearance, & More

The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait til the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.

 

#1. Allen Edmonds: $ 176 off Select Bourbon & Merlot

Huge fan of the Allen Edmonds Merlot shade around these parts (see a full How to Wear it for their Merlot McAllisters here.) Also know that the Bourbon shade can be a bit divisive. Some people LOVE it. Some think it can look a little striped looking and/or greenish in some lights. Anyway, $ 249 is a hell of a price for timeless Allen Edmonds first quality shoes. Deal runs clear through July 22nd.

 

#2. J.C.F.: 60% off Select + Extra 50% off Clearance w/ TOOCOOL

Got that? Two different offers here. The flex-chino blazer steal alert from Sunday is part of the clearance deal. But don’t forget the 60% off stuff too. Lots to look at here.

 

#3. Ledbury: 30% – 50% off Select Items Summer Sale

Is it still spendy? Yes. But it’s Ledbury. Really, really nice fabrics. Terrific construction. Great collars on their shirts. And speaking of their shirts, all of their shirts come with that slightly lowered 2nd button. Perfect for going sans-tie, and if any time is sans-tie-time, it’s summertime.

 

BONUS  Massdrop: Last Day for Spier & Mackay Suits – $ 299 FINAL

These are NOT their basic Aussie wools (which are great in their own right.) These are Italian milled, Super 120s wool fabrics. Still lined with Bemberg. Still half-canvas. Still offered in either slim or contemporary fits. Available in either navy, medium gray, or charcoal. Drop ends today though.

 

Also worth a mention on a Monday
