5. J. Crew Factory Wool Walking Coat – $106 (reg. $178)
If you’ve gotten this deep into fall/early winter without a wool coat, you’re probably starting to shiver. Single breasted, great cuffs, amazingly cheap. But you have to buy it on the weekends (if you’re buying online), because that’s the only time J. Crew’s Factory site is live.
4. Hilfiger 25th Anniversary Strap Watches: Black Dial – $115.00 | White Dial – $115.00
Happy 25th anniversary Mr. Hilfiger. Now you could either celebrate by unloading over $300 on his overpriced trim fit anniversary blazer, or… you could get one hell of a sweet watch for a third of that. Both come with one plain strap and one striped strap. Numerals on the black dial look to be a bit larger.
3. Kenneth Cole Wool iPad Case – $68.00
I don’t even have an iPad. Hell, I don’t even have a Mac. Closest I got is a second generation iPod shuffle, which would look a little funny if I carried it around in this thing. It’s the marriage of 21st century technology and an age-old fabric that really makes this thing look good.
2. Cost Plus Dexter Bonded Leather Chair – $199.99 (reg. $299)
This is the time of year for one of these chairs from Cost Plus, a book, and a good pour of Zaya. Yes it’s bonded (meaning it’s barely leather… think swept up pieces melted down and in the end, mainly vinyl) but if feels great. Looks pretty good in person too. If you want something more speakeasy / club looking, their Hawthorne chair in Chocolate Brown is incredible. $399 now, but watch for a sale.
1. Timberland Earthkeepers 6-Inch Zip – $170.00 $115.95 SHIPPED w/code 12345
Huge credit to Aa who left the code in the comments section. Code expires 12/6
Not cheap by any stretch, and the burnished brown (not tan, brown) is exceptionally difficult to find. Except for if you’re shopping on Timberland.com Anybody seen these somewhere else for a little less? (UPDATE: Aa has. Use code 12345 as mentioned above for 40% off) Leave those leads in the comments section below.
