Jack Spade Surplus Sale – Spring 2012
Note: All Surplus Sale items (or sale items 50% off or more) are FINAL sale. No returns. Sale ends 3/14/12 Credit to reader Josh C. for sending in the style tip.
Jack Spade is a brand where minimalists can cut loose a bit. Most of a minimalist’s stuff might be simple, well cut, and not too flashy, but every so often a Jack Spade pierces through the wardrobe. It’s like that young woman in your group of friends, normally sober but still absolutely fun, who every couple of months decides tonight’s the night to order a hookah and ask “WHO WANTS TO GO DANCING?!?”
Prices on Jack Spade goods are usually sky high. Their Surplus sale is really a final sale, so no returns here. But it’s one of the few times where Jack Spade stuff becomes obtainable for many of the affordable-minded fellas.
Cotton Pinstripe Computer File Case – $125 ($325)
Lordy. Maybe the steal of the sale. $200 off, simple, and has that one detail that sets it apart from the rest. Like seemingly the vast majority of Jack Spade items, it’s “imported” but it looks awfully good for just north of $100. $5 flat rate shipping on all items. If it were at this price when this was published, it most certainly would have made it.
Waxwear Computer File Case – $125 ($395)
Pretty much the same as the pinstripe case, only the pattern has been traded out for the texture and durability of waxed canvas. Off white grey check interior. Available in two colors. Plain for sure, but not some boring old black case you’d buy at Staples or Office Depot.
Work Twill Swiss Brief –$175.00 ($375) | Herringbone Swiss Brief – $125 ($425)
Herringbone York Brief – $95.00 ($375)
Under $100 and pretty unique. Some guys wouldn’t carry it because they’ll think it looks purse-ish. Made from wool (allegedly) with leather trim and a reinforced bottom. 4″ wide and has that briefcase/tote hybrid thing going.
Full Grain Leather Medium Eaton Duffel – $195.00 ($575)
for full grain leather? (Update: It’s “grain” leather. Not full grain. Credit to Jason in the comments fo the catch.) Hopefully Jack Spade isn’t going the way of CLAD. Sure it’s “imported” but the saddle color is nails, the price is right, and at 2268 cubic inches there’s a decent amount of space in there.
Soft Nylon Dopplet Bag – $29 ($95) | Shave Kit – $32 ($65)
$95 and $65 for shave kits is pretty high up there. They’re still pretty high up there, even when on sale. But, they look better than decent. 10.5″ x 6″ 3.5″ for the Dopplet. 8″ x 3.5″ x 2″ for the shave kit. The Dopplet also comes in the “tank” green seen on the shave kit.
Cotton Pinstripe Square Wallet – $35.00 ($125)
The impulse buy version of the pinstripe brief. Jack Spade wallets and small leather gear can get real expensive real fast. But $35 seems like more than a fair price for this one. Awfully unique, but pretty casual.
Grid Leather Bill Holder – $55.00 ($145)
The exterior might be a little much for many a guy’s every day wallet. But some will dig the oddity. It has a bit of a freakish luxury look to it. Also available in a business card case and credit card case.
Purple Grain Leather Supply Brief – $150.00 ($495)
Oh like YOU don’t want a purple leather briefcase. Okay, maybe you don’t.
The Jack Spade Final Sale / Surplus Sale ends 3/14. Remember, anything more than 50% off can’t be returned.
