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.

Shoe Metro: 50% off Select Allen Edmonds w/ ALLEN50
AE ShoeMetro Sale

Wingtips Galore.  Use the code for 50% off.

The Picks: McTavish – $147.50 ($295), Tan Neumok – $125.00 ($249.99), Larchmont – $162.50 ($325)

The star of this particular handful.  HALF off?  This almost seems like some sort of mistake. The selection isn’t vast, but there’s some decent models there.  Anyone have any experience with this retailer?  Big thanks to Kishore and Jerry for sending in the style tips.  No word when this code expires.  (Here’s to hoping it doesn’t too soon?)

UPDATE:  Looks like the code doesn’t work on every Allen Edmonds model that ShoeMetro carries.  Code was tested out on the three above, and it seemed to be working fine?  That might change though.  Again, this seems wonky.


L.L. Bean / L.L. Bean Signature: Winter Sale + Extra 15% off w/ JAN15
Code expires wed.

Code JAN15 expires wed 1/23/13

The Picks: Brushed Lambswool Striped Crew – $42.49 ($89), Classic Suede Chukkas – $63.74 ($89) , Searsport Flannel Blazer and Pant – $177.64 ($320) full review here.  Warning: Sleeves run long.

An extra 15% off is paltry at say, a GAP inc brand, but at the notoriously code-stingy L.L. Bean and L.L. Bean Signature… that’s a nice number.  And as always with L.L. Bean, it ships free.  Many thanks to redbeardedmike for sending in the style tip.


J. Crew: More Sale Items Added, Extra 30% off w/ STYLEFIND
Sizes on the boots are moving fast.

Sizes on the boots are moving fast.

The Picks: Chippewa Homestead Boots – $174.99 ($268), Lambswool “Sweatshirt” – $34.99 ($69.50),  Cashmere Turtleneck – $90.99 ($245),

It’s winter clearance time at J. Crew, and they’ve dumped a few more worthwhile options in their sale section.  Unlike J. Crew Factory, the code STYLEFIND seems to apply even to sale items that aren’t final sale.


Cole Haan: End of Season Sale Event
CH prices coming down to earth.

CH prices coming down to earth.

The Picks: Air Colton Casual Wingtip – $104 ($198), Air Blythe Boot – $119.95 ($198), Navy Duffel – $119.95 ($398)

Interesting wingtips, basic boots, and an actually good-sized duffel bag (2400 cubic inches).  Note that the Air Blythe does sell through Nordstrom for $10 more, but it ships and returns free.


Huckberry:  FormFunctionForm 15% Off Sale
Note taking and card carrying all at once.

Note taking and card carrying all at once.

The Pick: Architect’s Wallet – $84.98 ($100)

Awesome.  The architect’s wallet at a discount.  Adds a little balance to Huckberry’s sales for the week, being that this FFF sale launched on the same day that you could buy a wooden neck or bow tie (and thanks for all of the WTF? emails about those ties from many of you fellas).

Also worth a mention: Club Monaco is offering 30% off already reduced items with the code DREAM30, which drops their Stanley Cotton Topcoat in Khaki to $139.30 (sizes Medium and up available at post time).  Banana Republic continues to do 30% off w/ BRSAVE30 (regular suiting & sportcoats seem to be up for the discount).  Bloomingdale’s has an extra 15% off most sale items w/ 5DAYSALE… selection is pretty paltry though.  Bonobos is running that extra 30% off sale items code JACKFROST30 through Monday.
