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.
American Eagle: 40% off Everything & Free Shipping No Min. w/ 88915111
Hat tip to Juan C. who sent in the style tip about this sale, plus, he also mentioned that AE has started to move their logos on some of their shirts (like their slim fit OCBDS) down to the hem. Thus, when tucked in… you can’t see that logo. Doesn’t seem to be a visible logo on the short sleeved polka dot option above? If you’re going to venture into the short sleeve button down territory, keep that tail short, the body close, and the sleeves trim. Tie is 30% wool and 70% acrylic. Everything (except 3rd party merchandise) is 40% off and ships free, no minimum, with 88915111 through 4/2.
The Pick: Vessey Business Card Case – $43.50 ($58)
Just enough color without visually hyperventilating. Selection isn’t the best for this sale, but if you’re looking for a small pickup of some sort, the extra 25% off helps. Code expires 3/31.
Banana Republic: 40% off (normal exclusions apply) w/ BRSALE40
The 40% off runs in store through the 31st, but actually expires today, 3/28 online. And yes, as you’d expect, blazers/suit jackets are excluded both online and in store. As are those sneaky “BR Picks”, which are pretty much anything the BR web people want to slap a “BR PICKS” label on. They’re down to mediums and larges for their trench, but it’s an incredible coat for $135. April showers and what not, right? The color is a little darker in person and the exterior is 100% cotton but has a water repellent feel to it. Construction is outstanding. Interior detachable vest/lining is partially quilted / part wool. Full shot of the trench (could have tightened the belt a bit more in the back for a more fitted look) can be found right here. Code expires today, 3/28.
Express: 40% off everything
Whoa. American Eagle and Express in one handful. Anywho, Express usually runs tiered codes. Not this time. 40% off everything, no code necessary, in store and online. And that drops their stretch cotton pinstripe jacket and pant combo to a very reasonable $167. Many thanks to Derric for sending in the style tip on that. Also, really, REALLY wish they’d kill the logos on their polos. Only a couple are available without, including this chambray collar polo. Haven’t seen this cotton glen plaid blazer in person, but it has potential as long as it’s not shiny or anything. Sale ends 4/1.
Huckberry: 30% off the Original Whiskey Ball
The ice melts slower, and thus, your drink stays cold without getting watered down. But you gotta have the molds to make these sphere’s of ice. Huckberry has a sale on the Original Whiskey Ball (or, balls in this case since they’re selling in pairs or four-packs). Meanwhile, you can pick up a cheaper version from Tovolo for under $10 through Amazon.
Also worth a mention: J. Crew Factory is doing 30% off everything w/ code MOREPLEASE, but prices are all over the place and suiting is back up close to their full retail price. Meanwhile, check your email… if you’ve got a J. Crew Factory store near you, they appear to be doing 50% off the entire store this weekend, but you might need a barcode on that email? J. Crew continues to run 25% off orders of $150+ with LOVEJCREW. The Brooks Brothers preferred customer event that provides 15% off most everything plus free shipping no minimum ends this Sunday. Sunglass Hut is taking an extra 33% off their sale items w/ code ss2013 (selection is pretty “mneh” though). GAP is 30% off w/ code GAPEGG.
