Sales that deserve some attention when heading into the weekend. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up the Friday Handful. Expect these things when necessary. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below. Included are a few picks worth pointing out.
Jackthreads & Gilt: Designer Sunglasses Flash Sales
Jackthreads is carrying the likes of Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Mosely Tribes, and more. Gilt is running a John Varvatos sale right now. Buying sunglasses sight unseen over the web is ALWAYS risky, so make sure you familiarize yourself with the return policies. Like the Kors in brown? They have them at Overstock for $59. Varvatos sunglasses are made in Japan.
Huckberry: General Knot & Co. Made in the USA Ties
Made in New England by combining top notch fabrics like the indigo and charcoal chambray shown here, with deadstock material which has now finally found a wearable home. For example, the floral accents on the charcoal tie were cut from old Pima Cotton shirting from Italy. Perfect slim, but far from skinny, 2 7/8″ width on these. Personality that doesn’t scream on these. Character that stands out quietly.
Levi’s Semi Annual Sale: 25% off + free shipping on $100+ orders w/ SUMMER25
- 505 Straight Fit Trousers – $32.90
- 501 Dimensional Rigid – $41.90
- 514 Slim Straight twill pants in “Atomic Grey” – $29.90
= $86.02 ($104.70 pre-code)
Good if you like to buy in bulk. Free shipping will be applied AFTER you drop the code in, so if you’re just over the century mark and then apply the code as shown in the example trifecta above, you’ll have to shell out for shipping. Also know that items that are more than half off are final sale and can’t be returned. Code SUMMER25 expires 7/18.
Allen Edmonds: Save 15% – 50% Summer Clearance
The Pick: Lubbock Single Monk Loafer – $219.00 ($295)
Part of the Allen Edmonds “Rough” collection. Not a dainty thing in the least. Goodyear welt, Made in the USA, all the standard Allen Edmonds expectations. Now juts under $220, with free shipping and returns.
The Reminder: Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale starts in one week on 7/20
The Picks: TBA
Unlike the half-yearly-sale for Men, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale puts brand new stock for the fall season on sale. It’s a bit of a reverse/bizzaro sale. Most sale events are there to move old product that’s been hanging around for a bit. This stuff has just hit the shelves with a price tag lower than it’ll be at for months after. It’ll still be hot, and there will be lots of fall and winter appropriate stuff, but it’s a big one.
Also worth a mention: Macy’s just launched a one day sale, standby for a post on that. Endless is doing 20% off shoes $100 or more with code 12SUMMER. Johnston & Murphy’s summer final clearance is on, but the Runnell Chukka is a ridiculous $71.96 with ALPICNIC2. Hugo Boss is also having a summer clearance, and one of the few splurges worth a look are these dark grey Mother of Pearl cufflinks. Along with General Knot & Co., Huckberry has launched their Critical Cycles Sale (remember them from the eliminator?) with the bikes going for $169 plus shipping. L.E.C. has $20 off $75 and free shipping at $50 with the code JULY and pin 5230. Bonobos posted on their Facebook page this morning an extra 20% off sale items offer for their FB Fans (credit Avisha for the early spot).
