Cole Haan Bi-annual Sale

Cole Haan Bi-annual Sale

Cole Haan Bi-annual Sale – Up to 40% off

Early summer is the time that retailers take stock of what they have, and then try and sell off the over-stock to make room for the incoming fall stuff.  Cole Haan recent launched their Bi-Annual Sale and there’s some interesting baragins on their site.  More interesting is that if you dig around (don’t worry, we did that for you) can find better selection, and in some cases, even lower prices on the same Cole Haan Merchandise at other online retailers.  Here’s a few picks from the current sale they’ve got going on.

Cole Haan Men’s C1722 Aviator Sunglasses – SALE $70.00 (Reg. $175.00)

Great shape with just enough tortoise detailing.

Great shape with just enough tortoise detailing.

These are for all the guys who left comments about aviators  on the recent Ray Bans feature.  I’m not a huge fan of aviators, but slimmed down versions like these which look more Brad Pitt and less Hunter S. Thompson… these I’m all for.  Plus I own a pair of plastic Cole Haan sunglasses and they’re good quality.  A similar pair lists for $125 on ColeHaan.com, and no sunglasses made it into the current sale.  Thank you Amazon.  $70 ain’t that bad at all.

Cole Haan Ribbon Strap Glove – SALE $39.95 (Reg. Price $68.00)

Just different enough, and more functional too.

Just different enough, and more functional too.

I bought an almost identical pair of gloves from Banana Republic last year for about twice the price and they’re terrific.  The leather palm and nylon top frankly looks less stuffy, but just as nice.  They look tougher than a pair of your standard all leathers, but the leather palm and smooth top still looks good enough to wear with a suit and topcoat.  The ribbon strap adds an extra detail that’s more attractive than the boring old three lines of stitching most gloves sport on the top.  All sizes available for Brown, just small for black.

Cole Haan Air Barton Penny Driver – SALE $102 – $107 (Reg. $179.99)

Half Driver, Half Loafer, almost Half off.

Half Driver, Half Loafer, almost Half off.

Here’s a summer shoe you can go sockless in.  It’s on sale through ColeHaan.com but all they have is size 8 for the dark brown and  Black is sold out.  That’s not the case at Endless.  They’ve got an above average size selection for a shoe that’s marked down by $75  – $80.  Penny Loafer detailing but the Driver shape keeps it from looking too frumpy.  Not bad.

Cole Haan 30.5″ Quilted Nylon Jacket – SALE $99.99 (Reg. $670.00)

Unique... with a huge discount.

Unique... with a huge discount.

Save $570?  That might be a tad high on the markup, but still… A hundred bucks for a casual but still good looking warm fall/winter jacket is a nice price.  Motorcycle zip style cuffs, light military styling, quilted but not puffy.
