H&M e-commerce goes live & Wolverine 1000 mile – The Thursday Handful

Five sales worth your attention.

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 40% off Sale items w/ STYLE40

JCrew Extra 40

The Picks: Bowery Slim in Indigo Dot – $64.80 ($128), Unconstructed Oxford Ludlow – $131.40 ($225), Bowery Classic in Microstripe Cotton – $23.99 ($88), Slim Cashmere V-Neck in Spearamint – $59.99 ($225), Ludlow 3-Button Suit Jacket + Pant – $374.99 ($650)

Yep, this sale is still going on. But they did add a few new items of note to the sale. Like extra pant sizes (even a slim option) that’ll match the 3-button ludlow suit. Careful though, that suit jacket is final sale, and so is a lot of other stuff in the sale section. No returns on those items. Code expires this Sunday, 8/4.


Need Supply Co.: Extra 30% off Sale w/ 30MORE

The Picks: Wolverine 1000 Mile Boot in Black – $241.50 ($345) Billykirk Card Case – $41.99 ($95),  Sperry Captain’s Oxford – $55.99 ($95), Billykirk iPad sleeve – $48.29 ($138)

What was 20% last week, is now 30%. Strange thing about those Wolverines… they don’t appear to be marked down, but they are in the sale section. And the code is taking an extra 30% off at post time. Good to know that 2nds are going for $228 on Sierra Trading Post (and a heads up, STP has excluded Wolverine 1000 from seemingly all promotions).

UPDATE: Heard from the guys at Need Supply Co, and the Wolverine Boots are a glitch. So, strike that from the record counselor. 2nds are still going for $228 over at STP.


Rue La La: Semi-Annual Shoe Clearance

Rue shoe sale

The Picks: Cole Haan “Air Giraldo” single suede monk – $99.90 ($245)

Yes, Rue La La is a flash sale site so you have to hand over your email address, but like HauteLook (and sometimes Gilt… can depend on the sale) they’re one of the better ones. Returns policy at Rue La La is friendly. They’re free if you take store credit, but you can get your money back as long as you pop for return shipping. For those shoes… Air Giraldo? That mean you’re gonna wake up in the middle of the night to find it taking towel-clad selfies and posting them to twitter? Anyway, looks like a much higher quality version of the Florsheim Asset. A “How to wear it” for this type of shoe can be found right over here.


Lands’ End / L.E.C.: 25% off everything w/ TREAT & 1015

LEC new color denim

The Picks: LEC 5-Pocket Colored Jeans in 628 Straight fit or 608 slim – $51.00 ($68), 

Is this fall the last stand for L.E.C.? Haven’t heard anything, but it seems like they’ve cut back on the number of items they’re releasing, and they reabsorbed landsendcanvas.com into the standard Lands’ End site. A few new arrivals just came in, and the code + pin above get you free shipping at $50. So, those jeans really end up being more in the mid to low $40s when you factor in shipping costs. TREAT and 1015 expire on Monday, 8/5.


Nordstrom: Anniversary Sale Ends Sunday 8/4

Ann almost over

Original round up over here. Looks like they’ve stopped injecting new stuff into the sale awhile ago. If you jumped on something at the start, it’s almost certainly arrived by now. What’d you get? Those Red Wings worth a second look by those of us who are trying hard to resist?


BONUS: H&M’s Online Shop is Live


It won’t be met with as much fanfare as the UNIQLO e-commerce debut from way back, but H&M has finally gotten around to e-commerce. Quality? It’s… well… As far as blazers go, they can be mighty chopped. So be warned. But some guys have certain items they seek out at H&M. Shipping is a flat $5.95 on everything. Thanks to Ryan N. for the tip! UPDATE: Try 0549 for free shipping. Hat tip to you guys in the comments once again.

Also worth a mention: Ralph Lauren is taking an extra 40% off all sale styles w/ RLSUM40, but pickins’ are awfully slim. J. Crew Factory is 40% off everything through Sunday, and they’ve got new sizes for their Thompson chino in at $88. Ledbury’s summer sale is still going on… still plenty expensive. FormFunctionForm is back on Huckberry, with some Timex Sport + Architect’s Wallets on sale.
