What is Need Supply Co.? It feels a little like a high-class Urban Outfitters… only that’s not quite right. They’re a bit of an anomaly. They’ve got elements of street corner smokin’ hipster, and carry high quality heritage goods that are built to last. A lot of what they carry can be up there in terms of price, so a code like this helps. Note that the FWB20 20% off code doesn’t work on Aldens, so, those Indy boots are out. You’re on the hook to the tune of $7.95 for returns (plus original shipping charges). Here’s a look at one possible top 10 for this sale…
Yes indeed, these are up for the 20% off cut. Made in the USA, classic looks, and a goodyear welt. Nice thick leather too, although it breaks in fast and gets supple in a hurry. With Sierra Trading Post doing their best to keep Wolverine 2nds unavailable for codes, $288 for a pair of first quality 1000 Milers seems pretty solid. UPDATE: These went quick yesterday when the sale & this post launched. Just 10.5 left this morning (10/29)
Under $200, made in the USA, and a new take on a legend. Their new black collection takes a bit of the Scout-Leader look out of their usually earth-tone briefcases, and injects more of a city, dressed up vibe. UPDATE: These are gone. All sold out now.
Quite possibly the last duffel you’re gonna buy. At least for decades. 25″ x 14″ x 13″ so this is no tiny “Carry-all”. This’ll get you through an extra long weekend. They didn’t always carry navy options, but these got released in the last year or two. Made in the USA.
Despite the official position of this website that black shoes & boots are unfairly waived off by most in the menswear community in favor of brown… most aren’t going to find a black pair of boots as versatile as brown. So, they get dropped to #4. Still though, bet on em’. Always.
Yeah, it’s a blanket. But, if you’ve got a guest over, y’know, to watch some movies or something, you gotta have something better than an all poly fluff blanket sourced from TJ Maxx. That’s not a real good look. These look fantastic whether in use or not, they breathe well, and they’re a good investment you’ll have for a long, long time.
Not a half bad gym-bag. Extra compartment for shoes so your stinky kicks will stay away from your… stinky used gym gear? Always nice to be organized. 2310 cubic inches of space. Indigo cotton exterior.
Yep, lotta Filson on this top 10. But for good reason. A splurge for a dopp kit (especially if you’re used to just throwing whatever toothbrush the dentist gave you last trip into a zip loc pre-trip), but maybe a really good gift idea for the traveler on your holiday gift list this year? Get a load of all that leather.
Not what you’d call a “classic” design, but modern and minimalist without getting weird. Japanese quartz movement, leather NATO strap, a nicely shifted crown to 4 o’clock, and a beastly 46mm case. Yes. It’s big.
Drops this low on the top ten due to the price, even with the 20% off code. But goodness. That leather. The up close shots are drool worthy. Made in the USA. 20″ x 14″ x 12″ = 3360 cubic inches, which is neither cramped nor enormous for a weekender. Pack it up, throw it in the trunk, and take off. UPDATE: Looks like they have one of these, in black, over at East Dane for fifty bucks less.
Got it. Enjoy it. If you like the smell of a wood burning fire, but don’t have a fireplace in your place… these are a nice substitute. Unmistakable pine scent but more wood smoke forward.
The 20% off Friends w/ Benefits code FWB20 expires on Thursday, 10/30/14.
