Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend, or sometimes, a bit earlier.  Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look.  Those are what make up these handfuls.  Expect these things when necessary.  Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below.  Included are a few picks worth pointing out.

J. Crew: Extra 30% off SALE items w/ MUSTHAVE

Code MUSTHAVE expires Sunday 11/18/12.

The Picks: Workwear Jacket – $112 ($168), Leather Gloves – $54.60 ($88), Billykirk Briefcase – $259 ($380)

Yes, it’s no surprise that you’re seeing the J. Crew sale (and Factory sale below) here.  But as expected, J. Crew claims they’ve added over 150 items to the sale section.  There’s more than a few worthwhile picks lurking in there.  The Workwear jacket is a herringbone cotton that looks a  little like a lighter version of what 007 wore in Scotland.  The gloves are available in three colors (saddle shown) and are cashmere lined.  And points to J. Crew for including a few more “in good company” items, like this made in the USA padded briefcase from Billykirk.  Shipping is a flat $8.95 until $175, which at that point it becomes free.


J.Crew Factory: 30% off + Free shipping no min w/ SCOREMORE

Code SCOREMORE expires Tues. 11/20/12

The Pick: Washed Gingham Shirt – $20.65 (was $29.50)

One of the better offers out of the J. Crew camp in a long time.  30% off, no spending threshold, and you get free shipping no minimum.  Need a new shirt with some pattern to layer under sweaters and sportcoats?  Sure thing.  This washed gingham is now less than $21.  Shipped.  A great code for those of us who buy one piece at a time.


Bonobos: Extra 25% off Sale w/ 25EXTRA

New items have just been added.

The Picks: Baja Travel Jeans – $58.50 ($98), Jack Spade York Brief – $129 ($245), Greystokes – $74.25 ($175)

Tis the season for extra % off Sale Section codes.  Like J. Crew, Bonobos just injected some new stock into their sale section, so at post time there’s a surprisingly wide array of sizes to pick from.  The 5-pocket travel jeans in tan are a perfect cure for the common khaki (should probably trademark that…), the Jack Spade dipped york brief is down to a terrific price of $130, and the Italian wool Greystokes are now $100 off.


Lands’ End / Lands’ End Canvas: 40% off one item w/ JOLLY & 1112

Summer can take its time getting here.

The Picks: 628 Straight Fit Moleskin Pants – $42.00 ($70), OR 628 Straight Fit USA Jeans – $58.80 ($98)

Lands’ End was just doing a 30% off everything F&F sale, which is great for buying more than one item at a time, but their 40% off one item sales are like the J. Crew Factory sale.  If you go one item at a time instead of buying in bulk, then it’s worth the wait.  A heads up:  sizes are starting to get a little scarce for the Made in the USA Jeans.  Review of the denim over here with fit comparisons to their slimmer 608 fit.  Code expires Monday, 11/19/12.


Four641 Vintage Collection


The Picks: Vintage French Police Coat – $149.50, Vintage Italian Map Case – $27.99

Not so much a sale as more of an odd discovery.  Never heard of this outfit until yesterday.  Anybody?  Thoughts?  They appear to be a shop that specializes in photography based in Delaware.  And they’ve launched a line of vintage-goods that they’ve… somehow come across.  Interesting explanation from the owner/founder, Nic, who while searching out rare film and cameras often came across strange characters looking to move some other vintage goods.  See the email we exchanged here.
