Wool Sweaters, Just in Outerwear, & 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: New Arrivals & 25% off $ 175+ w/ QUARTEROFF


Good gravy. (And it is the month for gravy, no?) Bonobos stuff starts out expensive. Real expensive. But the styling sure does appeal to some of you guys, from what I can tell (me too in some cases). 25% off isn’t an extra 40% off sale, but this stuff is just in. And 25% off is better than the normal 20% off code. And it’s that kind of hard-hitting analysis that makes me the clown who runs this ship.

UPDATE: So this is 25% off $ 175+… not just 25% off across the board. Sorry guys, got some bad intel on that one. Anything under $ 175 in the picks above is gonna need an additional small item, from say the sale section, to trip that 25% off.

UPDATE II: Turns out it’ll be 25% off no min between 2pm ET and 4pm ET today?


J. Crew: 30% off w/ FRIENDS (or 35% off for rewards members w/ FAMILY)

J. Crew

AND it works on sale stuff too. AND it appears that the classic fit, wider lapel, Moon Mills herringbone blazer is back and up for the code. The darn things aren’t even getting excluded at checkout like they were a couple days back (despite saying they WERE up for the code). So… have at it. Don’t forget that their new rewards program is super easy to sign up for. Just your email and you’re good to go.


Huckberry: $ 30 – $ 40 off Buffalo Jackson Bags

Buffalo Jackson

Not the biggest price drop, but they are pretty darn handsome. I think (think?) these are imported from Mexico? Not sure. Free shipping and free returns at least.


EXPRESS: 40% off Everything

Express Leather Chukka

Seems like EXPRESS has been doing 40% off quite a bit lately, but, no complaints here. Those Red Wing ripoffs? Total guilty pleasure. They’re not half bad for around $ 80. Somewhere between a boot and a sneaker (the sole is really squishy/foam based). The leather isn’t half bad either. Will they last a lifetime like Red Wings? Of course not. But if you want something a little lighter weight and easier on the wallet, then might be worth a shot. Full review coming soon. Ships and returns for free.


GAP: 40% off Everything w/ FFTIME + Extra 10% off w/ BEST


Was set to expire but they’ve extended it, and added a stackable extra 10% off code. A couple of intriguing new arrivals have hit GAP’s site just in time for their friends and family sale.


BONUS Massdrop: UK Made Loake Kempton Chukkas – $ 199.99 FINAL ($ 300)

Loake Kempton Chukkas

They’re back! One heck of a pair of boots for just under $ 200. The problem? It’s friggin’ Massdrop. So it’s final sale. Also, beware of sizing. Sized in UK sizes. Some say go down a full size, some say go down just half a size. Full review here.


BONUS II  J.C.F.: 30%40% off Select items w/ 2DAYSONLY

J. Crew Factory seemed to have really cut back on its codes and promos in the fall, so 30% – 40% off feels like a rare treat. Not everything is getting the 40% off cut, but finally some of their fall sportcoats are NOT excluded from a promotion. Big fan of those cotton fisherman sweaters. Especially since they come in a slim fit.

The Hunt: Great Cashmere Sweaters for Work

Great Cashmere Sweaters for Work

Sure, we all know what wardrobe essentials for work professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

So we haven’t talked about affordable cashmere for work in a while — let’s discuss! I was intrigued, upon looking around at the stores, how many “weekend” options for cashmere there are. Hoodies! Boyfriend sweaters! Ponchos! Duster cardigans! If you want more of a classic, sleek look to wear with beneath blazers or on top of blouses (or both!), it can be a bit tricky to find them in stores right now. So we rounded up some favorites! Ladies, what sweaters are you reaching for the most on chilly mornings? Have you bought anything in years past that you still love — or have you bought anything recently that was a great find?

Here are some of the great cashmere sweaters for work we’re finding today…

great cashmere sweaters for work - Uniqlo

Pictured above: Uniqlo is always a great spot to check for affordable cashmere sweaters for work — they’re warm, classic, and come in a zillion colors. (Pro tip: check out Uniqlo’s Heattech line if you’re looking for a lot of warm options, especially for commuting clothes!) The red V-neck pictured above is $ 79.90, comes in __ colors; the brand has similar options in a turtleneck, crewneck, and cardigan.

great cashmere sweaters for work - Inhabit

This sweater may look basic, but don’t be surprised if it’s one of the softest cashmeres you’ve felt — I was thrilled to find several Inhabit sweaters at Nordstrom Rack. The pictured sweater (above) comes in black in sizes XS-L for $ 79 (originally $ 368!).

great cashmere sweaters for work - HalogenThis Halogen sweater is only $ 89 and has close to 500 super positive reviews at Nordstrom. I love how simple it is — it’s very easy to throw on beneath a blazer, add a statement necklace on top or a dickey beneath it (or an actual blouse!), and wear it to work. It comes in 8 colors, regular and petite sizes, XXSP-XL. The brand has a ton of more casual cashmere options as well.

great cashmere sweaters for work - jcrew

For $ 99+, J.Crew has a ton of great “everyday” cashmere sweaters. (Sadly, they are all excluded from the 40% off promo happening today!) The sweaters are available in sizes XXS-3X, which is great; the pictured crewneck comes in 23 (!) colors. They’ve also got a great everyday cashmere turtleneck. (To discuss: are turtlenecks “back” in style or have I just not noticed how many there were in recent years? I’ve always thought they’re a great basic look — certainly great background for a brooch or two! — but they felt like they were rarer in years past.)

great cashmere sweaters for work - Everlane

I often get asked about Everlane, and I will say that I’ve always been happy with their cashmere and merino sweaters — everything I’ve had has been great quality, and felt like a very current but classic take (so, for example, the longer cuffs here feel very au courant but the sweater itself is classic — not a ruffle in sight, thank goodness, and it’s a polished enough look that you can wear it to work or on the weekend.) The pictured sweater is $ 100, comes in 18 sizes (including some fun stripey options), in sizes XS-XL.
