Macy’s One Day Sale Picks – May 11 – 12, 2012
As always, it’s incredibly tough to peg when Macy’s will launch a One Day Sale. Sometimes a month and a half will go by between them, sometimes only a few weeks will pass. One thing is certain: These are usually sales worth paying attention to. The one-day sale prices are some of the best mark downs in the retail industry. Here’s some of the best from the One-Day-Sale which runs Fri. May 11- Sat. May 12. Items marked with a * are “Web Busters.” In store prices may or may not match up. Selection on all items (especially shoes) in store can vary greatly.
And our annual summer suit search is on. Haven’t seen this in person, but one is on the way. The “retail” price of $550 is inflated, but the low $200s is a solid deal. Would have been nice to seen it dip under $200 since these are cotton instead of wool, but not to sound like a broken record… prices are up everywhere. Here’s to hoping the shoulder pads aren’t too substantial. Seersucker is one of the only options if you’re stuck in extreme conditions, and this suit might be one of your best bets if you don’t want to shell out more than $250.
Attention fellas who are of the smaller stature. Y’know how hardly anyone makes size 36 jackets? These come in 36R and even a 36S. For the rest of us, they come in all the normal sizes too. They ship free, barely, and they return free in store. Might be worth the time?
Basic belt, basic stripe, basic price. Also available in a khaki with a blue stripe. Adds a bit of personality without completely going over the top. Careful with stacking this and other bright pieces. You could look colorblind fast.
Gotta love simplicity. There are far too many dress shirts out there that use way too many colors, thickness of stripes, different sized checks, etc… Keep it simple. Small check, light blue, perfect. Not the slimmest shirts in the world, but the construction on these is real nice for the low cost.
Has earned some great reviews, but a few negative comments say the fit really isn’t all that slim. Collar looks to be substantial, and the tag says 100% cotton. Still might need tailoring.
“Perfect for clambakes”… Or, just biking over to a pals house and grilling up some burgers. Rise looks neither too short nor too long on these. But it doesn’t get specific in the description on the site.
So the shoulders don’t look the best in the online pics, but for $90, you get a wool blazer in glen plaid that’s not too outrageous on the contrast. Fit is unknown?
Macy’s claims this watch is exclusive to their store. Well… kinda. Timex does sell it direct, but for the full $65. 42mm diameter means it’s a little larger than most Timex watches.
What. Too loud?
INC Linen Blend blazer – $63.99 – $79.99?????
And it still doesn’t appear to have shown up online. Shell is a mix. 55% linen, 45% ramie, which is a natural fiber. See a close up on the fabric here. It is lined, so it’s not as breezy as last year’s INC barely-there ultra lights, but it’s still much lighter than most blazers. Could be a little trimmer at the waist, but plenty will be able to skate by without extra tailoring. Armholes are a bit low, fit is a little off in places, but for $80 or under it’s a real good deal. First featured here.
The current Macy’s One Day Sale ends Saturday 5/12.
