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.
form•function•form: 20% off w/ StaleEasterCandyStillYummy (exp 4/8)
Well that just might be the best promo code of all time. The FFF team is cutting out early this week for a long weekend, so they’re running an “escape the studio” sale with that promo code. Only restrictions are that it’s limited to stock on hand, and since they’ll cut the goods when they get back, later orders might have to be refunded if they run out of, say, cordovan leather. Full review of the Shell Cordovan Weekender over here. StaleEasterCandyStillYummy is good through Monday.
BillyReid: 25% off Friends & Family w/ SPRING25
A warning, this stuff can get pricey. But American designer Billy Reid has found a nice position in the retail industry when it comes to offering high quality, luxury goods, that while expensive… aren’t European runway designer crazy quadruple digit costly. Code doesn’t expire until Sunday 4/17. Sadly, it won’t work on the Bond Peacoat. Meanwhile, also sadly, the Horween Cordovan option for the briefcase is sold out (that in reference just to the color perhaps? It was going for just $295.) Meanwhile, the Nordstrom owned HauteLook has launched a duo of Billy Reid sales (Clothes + shoes… looks like last season’s stuff?).
Ralph Lauren: Extra 25% off Select Styles w/ RLGIVING13
It’s Ralph Lauren’s Spring Pink Pony Fund donation time, and they’ve activated a 25% off most-items code to help showcase their $100,000 donation to cancer care and prevention (you can also make a donation at checkout). There are some excluded items, but the majority of the site seems to be up for the code. Even sale. Which drops these already marked down, Italian made, suede drivers to $150. Still expensive for a driver, but they were, wait for it… $400 (holy crap). Available in brown, olive, “sand”, navy and red.
You can also just print off a coupon and head in store. Meanwhile, from the department of “is this just a blip or is something really weird going on here?”….
What’s with the major Price Jumps?: The well loved jcp OCBD’s have jumped from $25 to $40 online. Their terrific Stafford slim fit suit separates have gone from $180 total to $360. Anybody got any ideas as to why?
UPDATE: The guys on threads are all over this. Bravo to them. Thanks to Juan for the heads up. It was nice to always have those $25 OCBDs available, with clearance and every once in awhile sales on top of that. But it obviously wasn’t working, and this… this just seems like flailing doesn’t it?
Lands’ End / L.E.C.: Extra 20% off all Sale & Clearance w/ AFFCLX20 + 4205 (exp 4/5)
The Picks: Tailored Fit Supima Twill Sportcoat + Matching Pant – $166.20, Pincord Jacket + Matching Pant – $139.98, Tailored Fit Donnegal Trouser – $47.99, L.E.C. 5-Pocket Straight Fit Moleskin Pants in currant - $31.99
Combine the code AFFCLX20 and pin 4205 with their “Button Downs + More” 25% off shirts, ties, suits and sport coats event, and some of their tailored fit options dip real low. Still going to need some work by your tailor if you’re slim, but mid $100s for a cotton suit isn’t half bad. Works on Lands’ End Canvas sale too.
Also worth a mention: J. Crew Factory continues to roll with 30% off everything w/ code MOREPLEASE. J. Crew‘s sale section has been slightly restocked, and SUNSHINE takes 30% off already marked down items (this worker blazer/jacket is a new addition to sale. Maxton Men is running 25% off gifts with GIFTS25. Express has launched their semi-annual clearance and knocked an additional 20% off clearance items. Charles Tyrwhitt has launched a mid-season sale, and they’ve got a few slim and extra slim shirts in simple checks like this one for under $40 (some of you have mentioned you like CT shirts). Cole Haan has launched an up to 70% off Warehouse sale.
