Macy’s August One Day Sale Picks – August 20 – 21, 2010
As always, it’s incredibly tough to peg when Macy’s will launch a One Day Sale. Sometimes a month and a half will go by between them, sometimes only a few weeks will pass. One thing is certain: These are sales worth paying attention to. The one-day sale prices are some of the best mark downs in the retail industry. Here’s five of the best from the One-Day-Sale which runs Friday August 20th – Saturday August 21st. Know that we’ve only picked items with a wide range of sizes.
Alfani RED Label 2 Inch Simple Stripe Tie – O.D.S. $10.99 (reg. $45.00)
$11 for a must have slim and simple tie? This is why paying attention to the Macy’s one-day sale is a smart idea.
Levi’s Slim Straight 514 – O.D.S. $32.99 (reg. $48.00)
If you’re in good shape, these are the top-dog when it comes to dressed up jeans. The Levi’s 514 Slim Straights fit closer than the 501 but aren’t skinny fit. The cut is as they say it is: Straight. It’s still too hot to even think about wearing these during the day, but fall is coming. $33 for a pair of these in this specific dark wash (Tumbled Rigid) is as good as it gets. A note: At 5’10” and 165lbs with unusually larger legs, these are right on the edge of too tight for me. For the complete breakdown of the 514, click on over this way.
Bulova Black Leather Adventurer & Silver-tone Dress – $149.25 (reg. $199.00)
Bulova knows how to make a mid-level affordable watch, but sometimes they go way over the top on details. Both of these newer models avoid the garishness some Bulovas fall victim to, and instead get it right with their simplicity. The Black Dial is advertised as a casual watch, but you should be able to wear it with a suit. The Silver-tone watch is formal in all the right ways. Both are just $150.
DKNY Stripe Fitted – $36.99 (reg $52) | Alfani RED Solid Blue Fitted – $19.99 (reg $45)
Two dress shirts that are both fitted and in colors and patterns that should be a foundation of your work week wardrobe. The DKNY falls into decently affordable territory, while the Alfani RED hits the dirt cheap basement floor.
Hilfiger Trim Fit Tux Jacket – $125.00 (reg. $375) & Tux Pants – $75.00 (reg. $150)
Planning on wearing a tux more than two or three times in your life? Probably best to invest in your own, get it tailored, and never have to rent an ill fitting plastic piece of garbage ever again. The Hilfiger Trim Fit line is pre-tapered and comes with flat front pants. The lapels on this jacket are notch (not the traditional peak) which is perfect if you’re an athletic guy and don’t need more attention drawn to your broad chest. An amazing deal at $200. (Also on sale for $200? Their entire line of trim fit suits. Including the wool worsted pinstripe.)
Hugo Boss Pasolini Suit in Navy or Gray – O.D.S. $699.99 (reg. $795.00)
Just featured in the Nordstrom Michael Buble style guide (and highly recommended by reader Jason) the Hugo Boss Pasolini is an exceptional suit with a hefty price tag and made in the USA. On sale for $100 off. Not quite the $530 sale price that happened during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale earlier this year, but… still.
The Macy’s One Day Sale runs through Saturday August 21st
