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.
Note: With Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale starting tomorrow for us in the rank and file, this is a day early this week.
LastCall.com: Extra 40% off ONE item (exp. 7/19/12)
The Picks: Bruno Magli Bit Loafer – $209.40 ($495) | Hugo Boss Wingtip – $119.40 ($275)
Not everybody likes the look of a bit loafer, but these have a pretty clean toe and the metal looks to be darker with hopefully less shine. The Boss wingtip is a pretty standard open-lacing wingtip for a decent price. The free shipping no minimum code FSANN5 seems to still be working.
Macy’s: Extra 20% off most men’s with code EXTRA (exp. 7/22/12)
The Picks: INC Linen Blend Blazer – $47.99 | Kenneth Cole Reaction Seersucker – $35.99
One of those few times where prices are actually a bit lower than a one day sale. Part of a summer clearance event. Two light and versatile blazers now get even lighter in terms of price. Free shipping doesn’t kick in till $99 though, so there’s an extra $9.95 on top of these if you go solo. Two more colors for the linen can be found here.
Aldo: Extra 15% off if you beat this game at AldoShoeParadise.com
The Pick: Aldo Mr. B’s Blake wingtip boot – $83.29 ($175)
Credit to Shawn W. for sending in the style tip. It’s not quite Contra, but if you collect all 8 shoes in the game you’ll get a code for 15% off. Word is this applies to sale shoes as well, so the dark brown version of the wingtip blake boot drops to $83.29 (the burgundy color is gone).
Rue La La: The FINAL Sale
The Pick: Cole Haan Montana II Duffel – $229.90 ($695) | Abboud Shawl Sweater – $44.90 ($168)
Final means no returns. Along with their some like it/some don’t wingtip monk, there’s plenty to pick from in the Cole Haan final sale. The old-world-luggage look isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but for those that do like that style, an all leather duffel like the Montana II is pretty sweet at $230. Three color options available for that one. The shawl collar sweater is also available in grey, and is a 50/50 wool acrylic mix.
Brooks Brothers: Summer Clearance now up to 50% off.
The Picks: Cotton Unconstructed Jacket – $124 ($248) | Linen/Cotton Trench – $199 ($398)
Looks like there might be some new additions to the Brooks Brothers summer clearance event? Prices have dipped a bit further, that’s for certain. The cotton sportcoat is way more than the Target version, but one can hope that the quality and feel will also be above the cheap but still good option from Merona. The Linen/Cotton trench has real potential. Maybe won’t keep you dry in a monsoon, but it looks terrific.
Also worth a mention: L.E.C. is doing 30% off sale items with free shipping at $50 with code WATERPARK and pin 1819 (exp. 7/19/12). Amazon is doing 20% off select shoes and accessories over $100 with the code SUMMER12, which puts the already on sale Allen Edmonds Elgin down to $175.20 shipped.
