Macy’s One Day Sale Picks – April 3 – 4, 2011
As always, it’s incredibly tough to peg when Macy’s will launch a One Day Sale. Sometimes a month and a half will go by between them, sometimes only a few weeks will pass. One thing is certain: These are usually sales worth paying attention to. The one-day sale prices are some of the best mark downs in the retail industry. Here’s some of the best from the One-Day-Sale which runs Tues. April 3 – Wed. April 4. Items marked with a * are “Web Busters.” In store prices may or may not match up. Selection on all items (especially shoes) in store can vary greatly.
This just in: Somebody actually makes a shawl collar tux that comes in suit separates. Not peak, not notch, but a shawl. Who knew? Under $300, which isn’t the lowest Hilfiger Trim Fits get, but this is enough of a freak that if you’re in the market for a tux, want a shawl, and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, this might be worth a look. Extra 20% off happens when you dump it in your cart.
Perry Ellis Web Belts – $18.99* ($39.50)
The low risk, low cost option of trying out the web spring/summer belt trend. Under $20 and dead simple. Etched logo is barely noticeable on the slim roller of the buckle.
The Thicker Dress Shirts: Kors – $29.75* ($59.50) | Hilfiger – $32.50* ($65)
So you don’t like those super thin, cheap poplin dress shirts you’ll find hanging in many a department store. Both of these should satiate your appetite for beefier fabric. The Kors is going to need some tailoring, but after that investment you’ll have a potential anchor for your dress shirt lineup. The Hilfiger is that Ithaca slim fit with a bit of oxford feel to it. Many guys like these quite a bit, and the reviews for both are positive.
Haven’t seen em’ and I think we all know that Stacy Adams isn’t exactly Allen Edmonds. But $50 for a pair of summer ready suede upper / rubber sole shoes? Hell. Cut the grass in them.
DKNY suiting (or in this case, separates) is worth the extra investment if you can afford it, but aren’t exactly flush with cash to the point where you’d go the Suit Supply route. Slim lapels on this one, and while navy overtook charcoal as the #1 color to have awhile back, charcoal is still plenty versatile. Extra 20% off happens when you dump it in your cart.
Or, there’s this. Not your normal solid navy by any stretch, but the tonal glen plaid keeps it subtle. Wool, the Hilfiger trim fit silhouette (warning: Shoulders might be too strong for some) and a sub $300 price on a suit that’s got a lot of character. Probably will need tailoring. Extra 20% off comes off in the cart to get to $279.
Doesn’t say anything about fit, so it’s fair to assume that it’s not going to be the much closer “custom” fit that RL produces. Which… note to the guys at RL… make more of that fit. Still a great looking sweater in smooth Pima cotton.
KCNY Summer Suiting – CHECK IN STORE
Forget online for now. Check in store first. Saw these hanging in a brick and mortar under signs that had them priced for $150 – $170 total. So, Overstock.com prices. That’ll vary from store to store, so don’t get your hopes up. They’re cotton and they fit pretty decent off the rack. If you want an ultra-cheap summer suit that you can still dress up for weddings, these are as good as it’ll get for under $200. Cotton is a little stiff, and the tan/khaki looks more over-saturated than shiny in person, but they both look more than decent. Especially for the price.
Hilfiger Taft V-Neck – $14.99 ($39.98)
Just a cotton V-neck sweater for fifteen bucks. Was $40, seems outrageously low priced for online (maybe it’s some kind of mistake?) and the reviews are all solid. Probably not the trimmest fitting thing in the world. But again, $15.
A light grey blazer, jeans, and these. Not a bad way to spend a random Wednesday or Thursday night out in the spring. Well under $100 and the reviews on other sites selling them for over $100 are promising.
A bit of a splurge, but it’s an automatic, appears to have good proportions for a rectangular case watch, and the cutout on the dial isn’t too much of a distraction. Exhibition case back as well. Movement is Japanese, and the diameter is somewhere between 34 and 35 mm. Also available over at Amazon for the same price.
The current Macy’s One Day Sale ends Wednesday 4/4.
