Prank you very much: April Fool’s Day Sales Roundup

Lots of today-only sales. No joke.

Retailers really will use any excuse to run a sale. If memory serves, April Fool’s Day hasn’t been seen as a retail opportunity in the past, but it sure seems to be one this year. A good selection of sales have launched today, most of which are limited to the bounds of today’s most sophomoric of days. No kidding around here. It’s like a handful, w/out any danger of a buzzer hidden in the palm. Legitimate picks are below. Top Photo Credit

 

Banana Republic: 41% off w/ BRAPRIL41

BR april fooI pity it

41%? Ah. Get it? 4.1.14. IT’S A PALINDROME PARTY MONKEYHUFFERS! Usual exclusions apply though. So, no blazers or sportcoats or BR picks or that stuff. The Waxed Leather Oxford could be awesome, or, it could be dreadful. Tempting looking though. Might make for a sweet casual shoe to beat up, especially in that dark brown. And a sweater vest? Really? Yes really.

 

Sierra Trading Post: Extra 35% off w/ EB040114A

STP wolv

The Picks: Wolverine 1000 Mile Addison – $159.25, Courtland – $159.25, or Plain Toe – $148.20

Heads up. Looks like after many months, Sierra Trading Post has restocked their Wolverine 1000 mile 2nds. They’re moving quick. Big thanks to MattFace on threads who caught this. Shipping can be steep, and remember that these are 2nds quality. More over here.

 

J. Crew: Extra 30% off Sale Items w/ SHOPNOW

Ludlow Houndstooth on Dappered.com

Ooh. That ticket pocket. Most if not all sizes available at post time. Overall, sale section seems pretty picked over right now. Meanwhile, they’re also offering 25% off a section of “weekend ready” picks with the same code over here. Code doesn’t expire until 4/6. 

 

Blue Claw Co: 25% off their EO Collection w/ EO

BCCO april fools sale

The Picks: The Hampton Duffle in Smoke – $101.50 ($145), Duck Island Dopp – $48.75 ($65)

The Hampton Duffle is a good size at 2100 cubic inches (21x10x10) and as always with Blue Claw, their goods are proudly made here in the USA. That Duck Island Dopp… sure looks similar to the one that was being offered in the Bespoke Post box back in May? Plenty of color options now though.

 

J. Crew Factory: 30% off & free shipping w/ JOKES

Factory Pocket Tee on Dappered.com

The free shipping no minimum is mega-key here, especially for those that happen to not live near a JCF Outlet brick and mortar. Is eighteen bucks a lot for a t-shirt? Yeah, especially when a lot of us get our tees at Target for ten bucks (or less). But this one is all cotton, comes in a real versatile blue on blue stripe, and the pocket is a welcome detail for plenty. Super soft too, and comes in their trim fit.

 

BONUS The Tradition: Bonobos April Fools Parody

Worth the watch. Bravo to the folks at Bonobos for continuing to have fun. The ex-girlfriend bit is particularly well executed. 

Also worth a mention
