Cole Haan Colton Chukka Boot – $ 124.97 ($ 250)

Chukkas are great. But not all chukkas are as great as others. For example, take desert boots. Love desert boots. But that crepe sole and more casual shape/floppier construction just doesn’t look all that good dressed up. The ultimate style of chukka is a sleek but not pointy, slim soled chukka that can do work with both dressed up and dressed down outfits. In cold or hot weather.

The Nordstrom exclusive, Cole Haan Colton is a fine example of that kind of super-versatile chukka.

Cole Haan Colton Chukka Boot

They’re not dirt cheap, but you do get a lot for the cash. A stitched, storm welt, a slim sole that still has some grip to it, a full-of-depth copper leather color, and a bit of flash with those blue panels. Plus, they’re extremely well reviewed. 4.5/5 stars after 150+ reviews.

List price is $ 250. Drops to $ 150 during big sales. Was recently on clearance for this same price of $ 125, but sizes were short then if memory serves.

Just about a full size run is back now, but they’re being sold through HauteLook, which is the flash-sale site that Nordstrom happens to own.

Shipping is free since they’re over $ 100. Returns are free if you can walk them into a Nordstrom Rack brick and mortar. Otherwise, returns through the mail will cost you $ 5.95.

That’s all. Carry on.

And the multi-hyphenate is exclusively telling Us all about the collaboration.

“As a woman who dresses from heel to head, I wanted to work with a brand who gets my shoe obsession. ShoeDazzle not only understands the mind of the shoe obsessed, but they are a customer driven company whose goal is optimal shopper satisfaction,” Jayne says. “The main reason I chose ShoeDazzle as my premier footwear partner is that with their price points I can offer my fans the chance to look and feel like me without the high price tag.”

For the uninitiated, ShoeDazzle is the online purveyor of trendy and wallet-friendly footwear that offers customers a personalized shopping experience based on their taste. For as little as $ 39.95 a month, users have the option to join the VIP Membership program that gives them exclusive access to perks and deals.

Jayne’s designs seek to offer something for everyone with their innovative personality-driven approach. “In my collections you’ll find styles like booties, heels and platform mules, made even more on-trend with the use of sporty stretch mesh, neon, vibrant takes on animal prints, graffiti and plenty of glam,” she shares.

The “Erika Girardi” capsule is for the woman who is looking for heels to take her from work to happy hour with ease. The six-piece range includes everything from platform sandals to ankle-strap stilettos in a pastel suedes, reptile-inspired prints and metallics.

The “Erika Jayne” line, meanwhile, plays to the blonde beauty’s pop star-persona with peep-toe booties, animal-print pumps, “Pretty Mess”-emblazoned pool slides and more. The nine styles are available in bold colors (think: neon pinks and yellows) and textures (i.e. mesh, crystal and the like).

“I was very involved in my partnership with ShoeDazzle and was an integral player in the step-by-step design process,” she says. “From prototypes to the finished product, I wanted to make sure each shoe was carefully designed and beautifully crafted for the Jayne and Girardi girl dying to come out of us all.”

The entire Erika Jayne x ShoeDazzle collection launches Friday, March 1, on Keep scrolling to watch the behind-the-design campaign video and to see all the sexy pics of Jayne modeling some of her favorite footwear from line!

Steal Alert: Select Made in the USA Brooks Brothers Suits for $360

Brooks Brothers: Select 1818 Suits – $ 359.40 ($ 1198)

Made in the USA. Italian fabrics. Hand-sewn armholes. Half-canvas construction. And they aren’t final sale (as long as you don’t have the pants hemmed/tailored before they leave the warehouse) so you can return them.

And they’re now going for just sixty bucks more than a fused J. Crew Factory Thompson?


I’m a bit flabbergasted on this one. In a good way though. Sure, it’s a relatively small selection of styles. And it’s lots of plaids and stripes. But that’s easy to tone down with a solid shirt and knit tie (or, no tie.)

A few of the Regent Fit, Made in the USA suits going for $ 360 today.

You’re looking for the 1818 suits here. Those are the Italian wool / Made in the USA line. The BrooksCool line is cheaper and not as well made. Lots of Regent fit available, which fits like a Spier and Mackay contemporary fit. Milano fits are the Brooks Brothers true slim.

Pretty good size selection at post time. Flash sale prices end today, 2/12/19. Big thanks to Grant M. for the tip.

That’s all. Carry on.

Steal Alert: UNIQLO Wool/Cashmere Topcoats $50 off + Ultra Light Down $10 off

UNIQLO 90% wool / 10% Cashmere Topcoat – $ 99.90 ($ 149.90)

UNIQLO calls these their “Chesterfield” topcoat (despite not being a true chesterfield), and they’re one of the better values in classy looking outerwear on the men’s style market. Given one or two conditions…

You live in a warm climate, or, you run particularly hot.

UNIQLO 90% wool / 10% Cashmere Chesterfield Topcoat

The Camel color. Very rich. Not a washed out straw shade.

These things are NOT well insulated. And the fabric isn’t that thick. Yet, the fabric really is something. 90% wool (and a fine wool at that) and 10% cashmere. They’re super soft to the touch and hit just above the knee.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking for something warmer/puffier, UNIQLO is also running a $ 10 off promotion on ALL of their ultra light down.

That goes for their hooded seamless parkas, their hoodless jackets, vests, etc. Head here for a full in person review of that hooded seamless parka.

Ultra light savings run through the 13th, while the wool outerwear deal expires Sunday (and thus, necessitated a steal alert post on Friday, since it’d be gone before the Monday tripod.)

That’s all. Carry on. Time to switch to decaf.

UNIQLO Men's Ultra Light Seamless Down Parka

UNIQLO’s Ultra Light Down Seamless Parka. More than a few colors to pick from.

Steal Alert: Amazon’s Buttoned Down Brand 100% Cashmere V-Necks for $62

Buttoned Down 100% Cashmere V Neck Sweater – $ 62.30 ($ 89)

Along with Goodthreads, Buttoned Down is one of Amazon’s main, in-house Menswear brands. And they’re coming for our money.

Buttoned Down 100% Cashmere V Neck Sweater

These things have a LOT going for them, despite the mixed reviews on Amazon. It’s lightweight cashmere, but the fabric itself is actually really nice. Much softer than you’d think for the price. Some reviewers have reported construction problems. Again, it’s lightweight. And while I haven’t done a long term test on the V-necks, I have a Cashmere crewneck from Buttoned Down (sadly not on sale), and I love it. It’s held up great. And you also have a lifetime guarantee backing you up. Plus, there’s always the convenient and free returns that Amazon offers.

Size shown below is a medium on 5’10” / 195. So it’s a little boxy. Might want to size down.

That’s all. Carry on.

Sunday Steal Alert: 50% off J. Crew Italian Flannel Suiting

Stretch Italian Wool Flannel Suits – $ 343 w/ GOLDENDEAL ($ 686)

In totally unrelated news, J. Crew just canned their new-ish CEO. He came from West Elm and was in the gig for 16 months.

Anywho, J. Crew is running something called “golden deals” that seem to last for just one day, and today’s is a nifty little seasonal treat for those of us that like to suit up even in the coldest weather.

Dark Charcoal or Night Sky blue. Both Ludlow and Classic jackets and pants.

Their stretch Italian wool flannel suit separates, both in Ludlow slim AND their more generous classic fits, are getting a big 50% off cut. Just use that GOLDENDEAL code at checkout. Sizes are a bit scattered on the classic side, which stinks for those of us with a bit more meat on our frames.

Big thanks to Andrew C. for the tip.

That’s all. Carry on.

Saturday Night Live Shows the Dark Side of the New Presidential Alert System

Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live mocked the new Presidential cell phone alert system, which was used across the country for the first time on Wednesday.

Though last Wednesday’s alert was only a test, the SNL sketch portrayed some of the worst fears about the way that President Trump could use the system, and offered some alternative alerts that could come to American phones.

“Failing New York Times says I cheated on taxes. Duh! It’s called being smart,” read one alert in the sketch.

The sketch played on many Americans’ skepticism that President Trump will only use the alert system in emergency situations, despite the fact that there is a law forbidding it.

“Warning: White men are under attack,” read one fake alert.

Watch the emergency alert SNL sketch here:
