J. Crew Factory New Arrivals, $65 Suede Wingtips , & More – The Thurs. Handful

The end of winter, the start of spring?

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

factory new arrivals handful

It’s still January, right? Might be a little early for spring suiting, but if this year’s Corded Cotton suit jacket & pant are as good as last year’s (as pictured above and reviewed over here) then these are gonna be quite good for the price. Will probably drop into the mid $100s for the set in the coming months. Also, many thanks to Derric for pointing out that they’re now offering the Thompson Worsted Wool Suit Pants in SLIM. That’s a big deal, since one of the major drawbacks before was how roomy the pants were compared to the relatively tailored jacket.

UPDATE: Hang on a second… despite it saying, clearly, 30% off prices are as marked, the Thompson corded cotton suit jacket, pant, and wool slim suit pants aren’t reflecting that as of early this morning. 

UPDATE II: Looks like they’ve fixed it. Prices on their site now reflect the 30% off.


Macy’s: Extra 25% off $100+ Men’s Sale w/ JANMEN

DKNY Pindot on the Dappered.com  - Thursday Handful

Almost wrote that up as “25% off Men’s Private Sale”. Sounds painful. Anyway, they’re calling it a private sale, but it’s clearly on the website when you head to the men’s section. Also going on in-store, but you might need one of these savings passes. Interesting to see the code working, at post time, on Allen Edmonds. A note about the strands: Check Amazon. They’ve got some sizes going for $232.


Express: 40% off Everything

Excellent. They’ve brought their outstanding “signature”, no-logo polo back at least in some kind of form. And the chambray placket actually looks pretty good. Pocket on the chest. Should be a trim fit. Also like the looks of those suede wingtips in the summer-ready “chalk”  for just $65.


Billy Reid: Up to 60% off End of Season Sale

Not cheap, but often very much worth the extra cost. Hat tip to B.A. over here for suggesting heading to Nordstrom to see if any of the Billy Reid Stuff is on sale for less over there.


Frank & Oak: Winter Sale

Frank & Oak Winter Sale - part of the Thursday Handful on Dappered.com

Once again, know that Frank & Oak’s return policy flat out stinks: “If you’re not happy for any reason, you can return your item(s) for Frank & Oak store credit within 15 days of delivery.” But they can make some tempting pieces.

Also worth a mention
