Take 25% off everything with code 09FRIEND – Expires 9/26
As prices have gone up everywhere, more expensive places like Brooks Brothers have started to push their way out of a lot of budgets. Sales have gotten sparse, and thresholds for minimum spend requirements have gotten teeth achingly high (like last week’s save $50 when you spend $300 at Brooks Brothers.)
But now is the season for Friends and Family sales. Just like Lands’ End Canvas, this one is a 25% off across the board. You’ll need the code 09FRIEND. Should work on sale items too. Onward with picks:
For all the talk of tie bars (short, plain, matte, bronze) this is a tie bar you can wear between now and Armageddon. Engravable too. Will make an incredible congratulations gift for someone. Maybe it’s a congratulations gift for you. And it it is for you, may I be one of the first to say congratulations, for whatever it is that you did.
Already on sale and drops to a very nice price of a little over $200. All polyester so it’ll keep the rain out, but with the all black color it should keep any synthetic shine down. Mean looking for Brooks Brothers.
BB #2 Stripe Knit Tie – $29.81 ($79.50)
Consider this summer clearance that you can still pull off for a bit longer. Silk is knitted in Italy and the tie is made in the USA. Five color options to choose from and none of em’ are all that subtle.
Supima Stripe Shawl Cardigan – $54.38 ($145.00)
A big, thick-knit cotton shawl collar cardigan. Already on sale and doubled down with the code. Sizes are limited. Perfect as your go-to final inside layer for winter. Or, as a jacket substitution on dry fall days.
Twin Stripe Slim Wool Tie – $67.13 ($89.50)
Almost $70 is a lot to invest in one tie, but look at these things. Wool is from England, the tie is made here in the States, and it’s a slim but not skinny 2 5/8″. Pretty close to perfect.
Again, green just doesn’t get enough play. Try it under a black or pale grey v-neck when it cools off. A really good looking ready to be beat up shirt.
Holy hyper prep. Lambswool means it’ll be warm (and expensive.) The dark colors tone it way down, but it’s still a cricket sweater. An old blue oxford underneath with jeans and some beat up wingtips should do the trick.
Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses – $89.25 ($119.00)
Last time around, BB didn’t exclude other brands from their 25% off F&F sale. The New Wayfarer has got to be in the top three when it comes to great looking sunglasses with character, but still don’t go over the top. Might be #1.
Even with the code you’re spending a lot on a small amount of leather. Doesn’t mean it’s not one of the best looking card cases out there. Made in Italy.
Football Leather Briefcase – $298.50 ($398.00)
A little more polished than say, a Saddleback, but still not completely kowtowing to board room tradition. Doesn’t come with a 100 year warranty though. Honest to goodness pebbled football leather.
