Every so often a weekend comes along where there’s a glut of sales, but none of the sales produce enough solid finds to warrant your full attention.  This appears to be one of those weekends.  Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below.  Included are a few picks worth pointing out.

UPDATE:  And just like that, Lands’ End/L.E.C. jump in the ring with a 30% off everything sale.  Code is ENJOY30 and pin is 1850.  Free shipping at $50.  Expires Monday.  Hat tip to Gilla for being the first one in via the comments.

Banana Republic: 25% off w/code BRCREATE (exp. 4/22)

Lots of colors marked down.

The Pick:  Cotton Cashmere V – $26.24 ($59.50) & Silk/Cotton/Cashmere V – $37.13 ($69.50)
The BR sale is supposed to raise up to $500k for something called Opportunity Finance Network.  25% off isn’t too mind blowing, but it works on sale and some sale items have already been drastically reduced.  The Cotton Cashmere V’s are supposed to have a nice tailored fit and earned 4.5 / 5 stars after 16 reviews.  The Silk/Cotton/Cashmere sweaters dip a little low, but the fabric is outstanding.  Now under $40 for a bunch of basic, select colors.  (And for all those size 36 guys… maybe this suit jacket for $127, and try it out as a blazer?)

 

Lord & Taylor:  25% off Friends & Family Sale w/ code FRIENDS (exp. 4/22)

Pick via the RL website.

The Pick:  Ralph Lauren Roderick Driver – $74.99 ($99)
Some of you made it pretty clear you’re not a fan of the standard driving shoe heel on this or its cousin the Terry Ribbon loafer.  But there are those of us who are indifferent, and at the same time awfully happy with the leather quality (assuming it’s as supple here as on the Terry.)  Much sleeker than a standard boat shoe, and more interesting than a simple driver.  Ships free as well.  Looks better at the RL site.  (Also worth a look: ESQ’s Filmore for $146.25)

 

Kenneth Cole: Take 30% off Full Priced Items w/code FANDF (exp 4/22)

Wear a dark suit & sunglasses, and TSA is going to search you.

The Pick: 20″ Coated Canvas Duffel with leather trim - $194.50 ($278)
Mean looking for under $200. Lots of city, not a lot of country with this one.  2600 cubic inches of space and comes with a limited lifetime warranty.  A bit of a splurge.  Too bad that the code only (seems?) to work on full priced items.

 

Brooks Brothers:  15% off to support Make-A-Wish (exp 4/20)

America. God Bless it.

The Pick:  Rancourt & Co Suede Chukkas – $126.65 ($298)
No code necessary here, and if you’ve got a Brooks Brothers credit card, you’ll get 20% off.  Made in the USA and was pushing $300.  Now less than half that since they were already marked down and the extra 15% off takes them down even further.  Doesn’t ship free though.  Suede is from Horween.  Crepe soles and they can be re-soled.

 

Express:  Buy one get one 50% off everything + $15 off every $60 w/ code 1239

Plenty of stretch in these.

The Pick:  Four Express Signature Polos – $104.70 w/free shipping (that’s $26 per)
You heard about the Brooks Brothers $2000 polo that launched earlier this week?  44 Brooks Brothers polos for two grand.  Right.  This is the poor man’s, slightly less ridiculous version.  You’d have to be in dire need of polo shirts to buy four at once, but $26.18 per polo, shipped, isn’t half bad at all.  The deal combines:

  • A buy one get one 50% off sale
  • The $15 off every $60 promo code 1239
  • A free shipping at $125 (pre code) offer that expires today.

The 1243 code being advertised on Express.com gets you only $15 off every $75.  Did well in the polo palooza.
