J. Crew 20% off Orders of $150+ with code FABFEB
Code is good on regular, sale, and FACTORY merchandise. Expires Wed. 2/22/12
One hundred and fifty dollars. That’s a lot of money. So much so that in all honesty, it’s not that great of a deal for most of us who shop for one small piece at a time. But if you’re looking to spend some big money, on say a Wool Ludlow Suit or a pair of Red Wings, or perhaps the FACTORY Cotton suit jacket & pant (now a silly $120.96 w/ the code. One opinion: it’s worth it. Full review later this week…) then the extra 20% off code FABFEB can be awfully nice, since J. Crew doesn’t usually do site wide codes.
The other strategy is to hit the sale like a buffet. Lots of smaller stuff, one plate, and all of a sudden it’s a deal. The suggestions below are ready to wear now, but won’t have to be stashed once winter comes to a close.
One of those items that you can use in a ton of different ways. Over a t-shirt, under a sweater, over a t-shirt and under a sweater (yeah, you can layer that much) with a relaxed summer suit and cotton tie when it gets warmer… the list goes on. You’ll have to use some starch to get it to get nice and crisp for more dressed up situations, but it’s a do almost anything shirt & pattern.
J. Crew Charcoal Buffalo Plaid Wool/Alpaca Scarf – $29.99 FINAL SALE ($48)
There’s still plenty of time left to use this. You can wear it clear into spring on those nights where it’s cool, but a light jacket would be cumbersome over a blazer. Blazer, gloves, this, and you’re set. It is a final sale item, so you can’t return it.
$65 seems a little steep, but with the extra 20% off discount these land at a much more palatable $52. That’s right in the wheelhouse for canvas sneakers, and these are just different enough. The grey color is as versatile as it gets. Full review over here in case you missed it.
FACTORY Slim Pocket Tee – $12.95 ($18.50)
Sometimes you get sick of polos. Sometimes a plain t-shirt feels too blank and underwear like. The inbetween is the pocket tee. They get hardly any respect, but the pocket along with the slim design of this one makes it the perfect companion to chinos or jeans on the weekend. And feel free to put something in the pocket. Y’know, cash, some notecards to write ideas on, a grocery list… Get some use of it since it’s there. This is the year to thin out all those graphic tees and add something with character. These are a real good option.
FACTORY Socks – $5.95 ($8.50)
Getting awfully close to the $150 at this point (current total cost: $144.69) So… socks. Perfect for those times in college when you had to warn your roomate to not “come a knockin,'” they can tip the balance on a threshold promo code, and they work real well on your feet too. Some louder options here, just keep the rest of your outfit subdued.
Final Total: $150.64
After FABFEB is applied: $120.51
Is that still a good chunk of change? Yes. So, it all depends on what you’re looking for.
The extra 20% off code FABFEB is set to expire on Wednesday 2/22/12…
