Tweed, a Camlin Boot Alternative, & More – The Thurs. 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 Factory: 30% off new arrivals + 30% off w/ THIRTY

Factory Herringbone 2013

The Picks: Thompson Sportcoat in Herringbone – $131.60 ($188), Layering Vest – $48.65 ($69.50), Honeycomb Shawl Collar Pullover – $55.65 ($79.50)

And it arrived. Featured yesterday, got a good review in the comments by Tom, and now here’s some more confirmation. This thing is great. Off the rack through the sides is perfect. Sleeves run a little long, but buttons are non functioning. 90% wool / 10% nylon body and the fabric walks the perfect line between tweed-like scratch and the softness of a merino-like wool. Also available in charcoal. Nice work once again Factory. Prices are up from the 30% off + VIP code double down, but stacking sales + codes like that doesn’t seem to happen every day. Or week.

 

Macy’s: Extra 20% off with VIP

Bar III and AE

The Picks: Bar III Encore Side-Zip Wingtip Boots – $79.99 ($99.99), Allen Edmonds Strand in Bourbon – $276.00 ($345)

Hat tip to Phil E. who sent in the tip about these boots and took an in person pic as well (he said the color is better in person) Strong potential to be a replacement for the Stafford Camlin here. According to Phil the leather is soft and the color is nice. The item title does have “side zip” in there… wish we could see if it really is or not on the Macy’s website. Meanwhile… Macy’s sells Allen Edmonds? And codes work on them? What? Still way up there at almost three bills, but if memory serves, the Strand in the new shade of Bourbon has yet to see any sort of significant markdowns. The McAllister did back in April though, so, fingers crossed for the Strand to get into the mid to low $200s. Code expires Sunday.

 

GAP: 35% off regular priced styles w/ GAPFALL

Gap Handful 91813

The Picks: Elbow Patch Lambswool Sweater – $32.47 ($49.95), 1969 Straight Fit Cords – $38.96 ($59.95), Waxed Cotton Jacket – $83.20 ($128), Navy Trench – $76.70 ($118)

Seems like GAP has been sticking mainly to 20% or 25% off codes lately. So while this is only good on full priced styles, 35% off is a good solid discount. Lots to pick from, and at first glance their new fall arrivals look pretty strong. Nice addition of the quilted gun/shooting pad on the jacket. And a note to the GAP.com folks: If you’re selling an elbow patch sweater, it’d be nice to see what them elbow patches look like.

 

Jackthreads: Wolverine 1000 Mile Sale

jack threads wolverines

The Picks: Wolverine 1000 Rockford – $230 ($395), Rowan – $245 ($445)

Yes, this is one of those flash-sale sites you need to hand over an email to access. And yes, you best be very careful with their return policy which is for store credit only. And $230 in Jack Threads store credit is a LOT of credit (their sales can sometimes be… less than desirable). Doesn’t say anything about these being 2nds quality. But if they were to show up and be seconds? Raise high-hell with customer service to get your cash back. Just do it within 7 days. Both of the above models are made in the USA. More on the Wolverine 1000 Mile collection, specifically the wingtip Addison, over here. UPDATE: The Rockfords are gone…

 

Banana Republic: Extra 40% off Sale Items w/ BRFALLSALE

br brushed chalk stripe

The Picks: Banana Republic Modern Slim Fit Chalk Stripe Blazer – $107.99 ($250), Elbow Patch Crew – $23.99 ($59.50), Soft-Wash slim fit twill shirt – $17.99 ($59.50)

BR’s sale section isn’t exactly bursting right now, but there’s some hunting and pecking that could be done. The Chalk Stripe blazer just got the nod in yesterday’s best blazers post (got one on the way for an in-person with this new trimmer fit). Elbow patch crew could be a good cheap & casual sweater for the fall. The shirt? Just a shirt. Runs a tad big.

 

BONUS: Allen Edmonds 2 for $250 factory second closeouts

AE 2 for 250 sale

This gets a little complicated at first glance, and there are some hoops you have to jump through, but some guys swear by these things. The ordering isn’t done online, but instead in-person at outlet stores, or over the phone. What you can do online, over email, is get a list of what’s available in your size. Reddit has a great guide on how this works, and you can follow along today with the guys on Threads.

Also worth a mention: Club Monaco is offering an extra 30% off sale items through the weekend with EXTRA30. Sale section is awfully picked over, but there’s a few common sizes left in their Wright Sport Coat. J. Crew is still running their 25% off almost everything with SHOPFALL, and they just put up a bunch of new (expensive) arrivals.  Selection can be found here. LastCall is 30% off site wide, which pushes these Italian Made Chukkas down to $160. Timberland has extended their 30% off promotion through today. Urban Outfitters is taking an extra 30% off everything in their sale section. Amazon is once again doing a select shoe orders $100+ with TAKE30OF. That drops the J&M Tyndall Boot to $129, and the Cole Haan Air Madison Single Monk to $130. Sierra Trading Post announced on twitter that they’re offering 35% off $100+ with the code STMD9313. And for you suited types who are good with making a solid investment, the Brooks Brothers 1818 Suiting event is going on. Two of their 1818 suits for $1399. Half canvas, made in the USA, four fits (Madison, Regent, Fitzgerald, and Milano). Ends Saturday.
