Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend, or sometimes, a bit earlier. Might not be some massive once a year event, but still worth a look. Those are what make up these handfuls. Expect these things when necessary. Five of the better sales, one for each finger, are below. Included are a few picks worth pointing out.
J. Crew Factory: 30% off new arrivals. Free shipping w/ SPRINGTOIT
At the rate and variety of fabrics they’re making these things in, expect a J. Crew Factory Burlap suit in October. Now in Oxford Cotton and 30% off. Ships free with SPRINGTOIT. Color is labeled as “Navy”… ? … (looks like it’s a white & very dark almost black navy woven together and thus, it looks grey). Full review of the pique and Corded cotton versions right over here. The 30% off is only good on new arrivals and those prices are already shown on their site.
Brooks Brothers: Preferred Customer Event, 15% off + Free Shipping through 4/1
Free shipping no minimum and an extra 15% off? Look out small stuff and sale section. Not a bad time to poke around and find a one-off shirt or belt that’s on sale. Shipping is usually a killer on Brooks Brothers. But during this event, you’re good. They got it. Discount jumps to 25% if you’re a Brooks Brothers credit card holder. There are a few exclusions, but they’re pretty few and far between (cordovan, made to measure, black fleece). Meanwhile, if you’re a member with Rue La La, they’ve got a Brooks Brothers sale going on over there too.
Banana Republic: Extra 30% off Sale Items w/ BRSALE30
Double dippin’ in the sale section. Size selection can vary, but the picks above have at least a few regular sizes left. The soft wash gingham shirts for example have lots of sizes left for their five shades. Great fit too. Slim, but not tight.
*Update: Looks like the wool blend crew are now out of stock.
**Update II: They’ve changed this to 30% off and more than just sale. Usual exclusions of suit jackets + blazers, Monogram, Heritage, the new “BR Picks” thing, and others apply, but BR48HOUR is a standard 30% off code. Sale selection seems better than normal though.
Maxton Men: 20% off office & tech w/ OFFICE20
The Pick: Field Notes Mixed Paper 3-Pack – $8.00
Not a bad time to stock up on Field Notes since free shipping kicks in at $25. Code expires today.
Saddleback: Dave’s Deals is well stocked
The Picks: Thin Briefcase in black – $369.90 ($461)
“Dave’s Deals” is a section on Saddleback’s website devoted to not quite perfect goods that are offered at a discount. Price drops range from 10% (you’d only notice the imperfection if you were holding the item) to 25% (you could catch a glimpse of the goof up from 10 feet away). There’s 22 items in there at post time, ranging from tiny stuff to enormous suitcases. And finding one of the thin briefcases in that section seems to be a bit of a rarity. The one on sale is in black and listed at 10% off. While most guys would probably prefer one of the shades of brown, it’s still marked down to now under $400. Which is strange, because $461 at 10% off = $414.90. Hm. Numbers don’t quite add up for their classic briefcase that’s on sale either.
UPDATE: This just showed up in the Dave’s Deals section over night… Thin Briefcase in the lightest shade, Tobacco brown. 10% discount has it listed now at $380.70
UPDATE II: Looks like they just added a medium brown chestnut version at a 15% discount here.
Also worth a mention: Express is doing $25 off every $75 you spend with the code 1192. J. Crew is still doing 25% off orders of $150+ with LOVEJCREW, and this just showed up in the sale section with tons of sizes. Pretty sure you caught the fact that Target’s Men’s Wardrobe Sale has (pre) launched. Lastcall is doing 30% off everything, but prices and stock seem… so so. Allen Edmonds just put a couple more shoes in their clearance section, including the different, grain-leather Hamptons. L.L. Bean and L.L. Bean Signature are doing 10% off through Monday w/ SPRING10.
