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.
The Picks: Washed Chino Blazer in Burgundy or Forrest Green – $118.40 ($198), Grey Stretch Cotton Chinos – $46.40 ($88), French Corders in Wine – $78.40 ($125), Nottingham Blazer in Navy – $206.40, or Brown Herringbone English Wool – $222.40 ($368 – $398)
Here’s the thing… if you “Share on facebook” you get 30% off. But… well… Not a fan here of that “share on social media and save money!” thing some brands do. But an extra 20% off sale puts goods that are usually out of reach for most of us in reach. Washed chino fabric on some slightly out-there shades of blazers? Wear em’ with jeans and don’t over think it. Limited lengths in the Robber Barrons, but you could always get them hemmed. Expensive cords, but… RED PANTS (meanwhile, the very brown cords are down to $62.40).
J. Crew’s new addiction to codes is getting creative. “Winter favorites?” That = “select items” sale. But if you recently got on the “I need to look a little better once I step outside the house” train, and thus can’t wait for end of season sales, this might be worth jumping on. For the scarf + topcoat… wearing those two together isn’t suggested. You want contrast there. Meanwhile, if you’re hooked on the J. Crew “slim” cut of sweaters… any discount is a good discount. Note to other retailers: Cut 10 – 20% off the sides of your sweaters, save the production costs(?) and market them as “Slim”. Everyone wins?
Like you lucked out at an estate sale, or you ended up with an inheritance piece. Blue or rose gold hands. Vintage looking dials. Nicely done. Just heard from the guys at Orient, and they’re running a 40% off code earlyblackfriday through tomorrow 11/22. 30% is the standard, but 40% is pretty rare these days. Also gets you free ground shipping. Expect an in person review & giveaway sometime in the next week or so.
The Pick: For her: Adele Border Cashmere Scarf – $90.65 ($129.50), For him (or you): Kensington Cashmere Hat – $55.65 ($79.50)
And just like that… November is almost over. If you haven’t even thought about the upcoming gift-giving season, now’s not a bad time to start. Club Monaco cashmere isn’t cheap, but it is super soft, and that scarf is equal parts class as well as on-trend with the color block thing. Might be a safe play when it comes to giving her a little bit of luxury.
J. Crew Factory: 40% off + extra 10% or 20% off w/ EARLYBIRD
Thompsons dip this low once every… month? Two months? This time you sorta have to game it though. Everything is 40% off (the goofy regular retail price) and by buying three or more items you can knock an extra 20% off that. So if you’re in the market for an affordable suit, consider picking up the suit jacket + pants… and buy a pocket square. Or socks. It drops the price of the suit down to the low $200s. Hard to beat that for a trim off the rack suit like the Thompson. Could they drop further on Black Friday or on Cyber Monday? That’s the gamble.
