Nordy Anniv. best of what’s left, J. Crew’s New Athletic Jackets, & 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: Anniversary Sale Ends SUNDAY!

Nordstrom

To quote one J. Bauer: YOU ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. And shouting isn’t gonna help. Now or never fellas. Prices go back up on Monday. Some stuff has sold out but there’s still plenty to pick from. And as always, everything ships and returns for free. Full picks are here in case you want to take one more spin through them.

 

J. Crew: New Rewards Program + New “Classic” Fit Jackets & Pants

J. Crew

Two non-sale related items worth passing along here. For the dudes who can’t fit into a Ludlow cut, know that it looks like J. Crew has done away with most of their “Crosby” fit stuff, but have moved on to a “Classic” fit. And they’re using the word “athletic” in the descriptions. Especially welcome is that new fit in their unconstructed “unsuit” style sportcoats (and pants). Check out the lapels too. Those ain’t Ludlow slim. Now… if they could just go on sale. Also worth noting is their new rewards program. No, you don’t need to sign up for a credit card to participate.

 

Massdrop: Orient Symphony Auto – $ 99.99 FINAL | Seiko SKX Auto – $ 169.99 FINAL

Orient & Seiko

Two wheelhouse watches. One dress, one tough, casual s.o.b. Both final sale of course since it’s Massdrop. And remember, the SKX series can often be found on Amazon or Jomashop for $ 179 – $ 199. No waiting over at those two other shops. And you can return the thing if it shows up and you’re not happy with it.

 

Ledbury: Extra 30% off Clearance w/ TUBULAR

Ledbury

Feels pretty picked over, but there’s a few gems in there with still some sizes left. Watch out for final sale items. There’s a few of those lurking about in there.

 

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.
  • J. Crew Factory:  20% off 2+ items, 30% off 3+ items, 40% off 4+ items w/ TOOCOOL
  • Spier & Mackay: Extra 20% off sale items w/ SALE20

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

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.
