Further Markdowns on Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale Items
Nordstrom’s half yearly sale for men is officially over. And that means they’ve dropped the prices on whatever didn’t sell even further. What was 30% off, is now 40% or 50% off.
But the best part is, there is a ton of new stuff in their sale section. Usually the Sale after the Half Year Sale just can’t compete. This year, thanks to the new additions to the sale section, it’s head and shoulders above. Might be one of the best kept secrets in Men’s style. Only items with at least a decent size selection are shown below.
Still going to be a little too short for many in the tail, but this is as inexpensive as a close to blackwatch plaid pattern sport coat will get. Wool with some spandex. Now 50% off. Ships and returns free. Wish they had medium “tall” sizes, so those of us of normal height could get a little extra length in the jacket.
Jack Spade Leather Davis Brief – $186.90 ($375) | Wayne Duffel – $196.90 ($395)
Both leather, and both in their different but not too crazy “shark” grey color. The Davis brief is now even cheaper than if you were to buy through Jack Spade direct with their 25% off sale items code. Both were sniffing $400 at full retail. A recent addition to the sale section.
Cole Haan Air Canton Chelsea – $113.90 ($228) | Air Colton Wingtip – $109.90 ($198)
Cole Haan for $200 or over? No. Cole Haan for just over $100 with free shipping and returns? Sure thing. Both lean pretty traditional in toe shape. Should be comfy thanks to the Nike Air.
Damn. $75 is a ton of money for a scarf, but look at those things. Made in Scotland. Cashmere. Now half off with all the color options still available. 60″ long too. Again… damn.
Marc New York is one of those brands that consistently makes good looking gear for a hard to find middle of the road price. At half off, this becomes a real affordable leather jacket, that’s oddly simple. No epaulets, no wild pockets, and a stand up collar that’s neither a traditional bomber collar nor one of those band style moto collars. The one review says it runs a little big through the middle and long in the arms, so size down if you’re questioning. Is available in some limited tall sizes.
Sizes are starting to get scarce, but they’re waterproof, look incredible, and will handle just fine on the trail. Each pair comes with a couple of different colored laces, which is a nice nod to those who like changing it up.
Was $45 and now marked down to $34 with the complimentary free shipping. Hard not to like the navy pair with the contrasting sued up against it.
Black Rivet Peacoat – $68.90 ($139)
Might look awesome, might look dreadful. If you’re the type that likes having more than one coat on hand, this might be an ultra cheap way to change it up on the weekend.
There seems to be this feeling that Varvatos is one of those designers that can command quite the premium just for his name. But a suede chukka for under $100 and half off seems like a decent bet. These do appear to have some burnishing at the toe. Free shipping and free returns though.
Available sizes are all over the place, but between the seven different colors most sizes are available. For now. Raglan sleeves and a “trim fitting” form. Nice work Nordstrom.
Five sizes left. If you’re in that range and you’re looking for a pair of slightly weathered looking wingtips with an incredible shape, then you’re lucky. $150 for these? Made in Spain. Bologna construction and made of Italian calfskin.
They only dropped the price an additional $20 from where it was during the sale, but now it’s under that magic $200 threshold. Lots of sizes left. Would look incredible with a navy suit.
Again, there’s a difference between a calibrate Slim fit and their “Trim” fit. These slim fits are extra tight through the middle with more modern, smaller collars. Now under $30.
Calibrate Navigator – $33.90 ($69.50) | Mosley Tribes Burke – $89.90 ($180)
Thank goodness for the free shipping and returns. I think most of us would agree that online sunglasses shopping can be real hit or miss. The Calibrate Navigator has potential, but could look forced. The pair from Mosley Tribes have that keyhole bridge and come in an unexpected “Army Green.” Want a plastic pair that’s Wayfarer like without the keyhole? Calibrate makes a cheap pair of those too.
Getting excited about a scarf seems pretty silly. An exception can be made when it comes to these. Just under $50, so still an investment, but they’re wool, made in Italy, and the stripes / colors are dead on perfect.
Good heavens. There’s a little funk with the stitching at the toe, but those super small perforations that sweep up and along the sides are a terrific detail. Still costs an arm and a leg for most of us.
Got a workplace that requires “dress pants”? These come with a slick grid/check on em’ for a reasonable $60. Since they’re Ben Sherman, they should (should) fit closer. Sizes are starting to get limited.
Moleskine 15″ Laptop Case – $26.90 ($54.95)
99% of laptop cases look terrible. They’re usually boring, smushy foam cases with a bright accent color. They’re about as sleek as a fanny pack. This one mimicks the classic Moleskin notebook with a large elastic band. Now closer to the same price as one of those Office Depot specials.
Cole Haan Air Hunter – $113.90 ($228) | Timberland Earthkeepers Moc – $54.90 ($110)
The Cole Haan’s inspired some anger over here, but for just over $100 they could make one hell of a good looking light hiker for the price. Also available in the darker grey suede. And the Timberlands… $55???
Labeled as a regular fit, so know that there’s going to be extra room with these. Nordstrom house brand stuff is usually decent quality. Merino wool and a nice substantial looking collar. Sizes are going fast.
