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.
NOTE: Since these are happening the week of Black Friday… it might be worthwhile to sit tight for Friday and Cyber Monday. But who knows about sizes and selection when we get there.
Bonobos: Extra 30% off sale w/ FALL30 (EXP 11/25)
A good injection of new items in the sale section + an extra 30% off = these might move fast. The sweaters are still a little pricey, but they come in a slimmer cut, and that’s a big deal. That navy tweed blazer just might be the steal of the season, if it drapes better than the option J. Crew is producing. Code expires today, 11/25/13.
No minimum to spend, and it looks like it should work for everyone? The To Boot New York Aaron in Black might be the best price on a high quality dress shoe out there. Toes look square-ish online, but in person they’re more rounded off (not a traditional round toe, but still, not so choppy). Grippy rubber sole. Made in Italy. The “antique tan” option will run you just under $170, but $112 for a pair of TBNY is pretty unheard of. UPDATE: Black are all but sold out now.
The Picks: Dock Peacoat – $163.50 ($218), Ludlow Sportcoat in Windowpane – $261 ($368), Slim rustic merino elbow-patch shawl collar – $74.99 ($128)
This code is set to expire tomorrow, 11/26… so you have to think something else is coming for the Thanksgiving Weekend and/or Black Friday. But the risk is missing out on your size in whatever item you’re looking at. Is it likely? Probably not. But one of us (right here) is kicking himself for missing out on the Ludlow Velvet Shawl Collar. Usual exclusions apply on this one, so most Ludlow Suiting is out, but blazers are fair game. Dock Peacoat is already on sale for a nice price. Sportcoat is a new arrival, still pricey, but that windowpane pattern is awfully unique even though it’s classic. Unless it’s an item you’re dying to get, and stock appears to be getting low, it might be worth it to wait for Friday/Monday.
Hautelook is one of those sites like Gilt. You have to hand over an email address to get access to the timed sales. But Hautelook is also owned by Nordstrom (who, honestly, seems to get a lot of things right). They’ve just launched a “Nordstrom Rack for Hautelook” section that has goods marked down with no time restrictions. Is it just the stuff from Hautelook that didn’t sell during the original timed events? Maybe. Can’t tell quite yet. But it’s worth poking around if you’ve got a HL account. Not Black Friday or Cyber Monday releated, but needs a mention.
Hat tip to our man Christian for sending this tip in. Good now through Cyber Monday. That waxed flask set looks like the perfect gift for the guy who likes to take a drink on the run (or, walk/stroll). Ernest Alexander stuff isn’t cheap, but it’s made in the USA and built to last. Full review of the Bedford Overnight bag over here.
This code is good through Friday, so it appears to be, at least in part, their Black Friday offer… but who knows if they’ll add something in addition later on.
