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.
This isn’t limited to the sale section, and there are plenty of new fall arrivals that are going to be real hard to resist. The usual exclusions do apply though. So, no suiting or 3rd party merchandise… but blazers and outerwear are most certainly up for grabs. That Ludlow in English wool might be the splurge of the season. Still pricey in the mid $200s, but much, much less expensive than their new cotton herringbone option (which is head-scratchingly pricey). Ticket pocket is a nice detail as well. And their new, longer peacoat is all kinds of right. Also, look what’s back! And here’s to hoping it sticks around. It’s a good one. Code expires Monday 8/26.
The Picks: Weekender Slip-thru with red/grey – $15.00
It’s not the largest selection to pick from, but $20 for a weekender is awfully fair (shipping is five bucks). You do have to create a woot! account or sign in with your Amazon username and password to take advantage of the deal. Many thanks to Ryan N. and Joshua M. for the style tips on this one. Update: Red + Grey are sold out, but there’s a purple strap version still up for grabs.
Wow, that’s a lot of earth tone wingtipping in just one 400 pixel wide box. Anyway, the Chukkamok are admittedly bizarre. But they might strike a good balance with jeans and a chino or tweed sportcoat. Same Allen Edmonds quality, just now at a mid $100s price. Unstructured, long wing, made in the USA. The McTavish is another stepped-up casual but a little more familiar. Now under $200 in this lighter, distressed brown.
The Picks: L.E.C. Moleskin Straight Fit 5-pockets – $31.99 ($70), Tailored Fit Flat Front Donnegal Trouser – $47.99 ($99), L.E.C. Contrast Collar OCBD – $23.99 ($44), L.E.C. Mourning Stripe Vest – $55.99 ($100)
The pin EXCLUSIVE and code 1417 isn’t being advertised on their site, but it runs through tomorrow (Friday 8/23) and takes an extra 20% off sale and clearance. Also, free shipping kicks in at $50 with that code and pin. The Moleskin Straight fits were a favorite from last season that might have to be jumped on. Like a cold weather version of those red pants some favor.
Man. The new dark Glenn-Plaid Thompson suit is much more expensive than the all-wool solids that have been out for a while. With the code, the Glenn plaid is $272. The solids are $221.20. Not the most mind blowing sale, but prices with the code dip to just about where most of us would pull the trigger.
Also worth a mention: For you big spenders who wear suits a lot and need something high quality, Billy Reid has a few “Heirloom” collection suits for half off ($648 – $698). Cole Haan’s summer sale continues to roll on. Jack Spade is offering 20% off regular priced items as long as you take a survey (scroll down on their homepage, it’s below the fold). Levi’s is offering 30% off most items with the code DENIMEVENT … which brings this pair of Portuguese made wingtip boots down to $117.60. Free shipping too. Big fat hat tip to TDurden for finding these and posting about them on threads. Banana Republic is offering 30% off full priced styles with BRSHARP, but the usual exclusions (blazers, suit jackets) apply. BR is also running a F&F sale (40% off online, 50% off in store, limited to no exclusions) but you need a code from an employee. (Psst… try: LD1JDQNXYDKX online. Usually these things dry up pretty fast though.)
