Sales that deserve some attention heading into the weekend or a bit earlier. Five of the better sales are below, plus bonus sales if need be. Included are a few picks worth pointing out.
Rancourt: Wholesale Pre-Order/Crowdfunding options now live
- Made in the USA Gilman Camp-moc – $150 ($250)
- Made in the USA Classic Ranger-moc – $150 ($250)
- Made in the USA Read Boat Shoe – $150 ($250)
- Made in the USA Court Classic 2.0 Low – $170 ($280)
- Made in the USA Acadia Chukka – $175 ($280)
- Made in the USA Beefroll Penny Loafers – $180 ($295)
Full disclosure: I have no idea about returns on this one. It’s a pre-order, but they’re also tagged as “ready made” on the site, which the return policy seems to indicate as returnable. Also, the timetable is long. 8-12 weeks out, but Rancourt has made it clear in emails and on social media that they’ve dropped some models to wholesale pricing just to keep their USA based workers, well… working. Big thanks to Chris P. for the tip on this one.
Nordstrom Rack: Extra 40% off Select FINAL SALE Men’s Shoes/Clothes
- Made in Italy John W. Nordstrom Basketweave Traditional Blazer – $119.98 FINAL ($499)
- Made in Italy John W. Nordstrom Torino Flat Front Solid Wool Dress Pants – $29.24 FINAL ($159)
- Made in Italy John W. Nordstrom Torino Flat Front Check Wool Dress Pants – $29.24 FINAL ($159)
- Made in Italy Antonio Maurizi Cap Toe Leather Oxford – $85.49 FINAL ($525… oh come on)
- Sperry Leeward 2-Eye Corduroy Boat Shoe – $38.24 FINAL ($95)
- Made in Italy To Boot New York Marseille Leather Derby – $80.99 FINAL ($375)
So it’s not the whole site. Far from it. And it’s not all of their clearance section either. It’s a selection. But there are some seriously bottom-of-the-rung prices going on here. Final sale though. No returns.
Filson: At least 50% off during their summer sale
- 24-hour Tin Cloth Briefcase in Navy or Black – $194.90 ($395)
- Medium Rugged Twill Duffle – $194.90 ($395)
- Rugged Suede Duffle – $394.90 ($795)
If memory serves, didn’t they used to sneak up on this level of discount at first? Did they always just jump into half off? Anyway, bottom line is the prices are super nice for Filson stuff, direct through Filson. Lots of Made in the USA stuff. Big thanks to Eric S. for the tip!
Banana Republic: Up to 60% off Select (traveler pants = $39)
And getting that max discount is the bestselling Traveler Pants. These are not core temp chinos (which happen to be 50% off). Core Temps are a true chino style, while the Traveler is a 5-pocket jean style, and the core temp is a more “engineered” fabric, while these are 99% cotton and 1% elastane. And unlike the core temps, these actually come in an athletic tapered, in addition to the usual slim fit. Thunder thighs celebrate! You have pants! 4.8/5 stars after 2000+ reviews. So under $40? Nice. Quite the deal.
Amazon: Bulova Lunar Pilot Chronograph – $285 ($350ish)
Usually running well into the $300s if not close to $400, this is the “other” moon watch. Apollo 15’s mission commander, Colonel David Scott, wore his personal Bulova on the moon as backup to the NASA issued Omegas. This is the recreation for us normal civilians. Not small at 45mm, but doesn’t feel bulky to me either. Superluminous hands and markers. Ultra high-frequency quartz movement. Set comes with two straps, including a black-nylon akin to Colonel Scott’s original, as well as a strap changing tool. One of the (few) bright spots of the Amazon big-style-sale-thing-event-whatchamahoozer.
BONUS adidas: End of Season Sale
- Continental 80 Sneakers – $64 ($80)
- Ultraboost 20 SB – $144 ($180)
- Stan Smiths in White/Blue Glow – $48 ($80)
- Tiron 19 Training Pants – $34 ($45)
A good time to scout for savings for those who are fans of the brand with 3 stripes. Digging those Tiros with the future-retro branding and stripes on the leg.
BONUS II J. Crew: 60% off select “Summer Faves” with SALEAWAY
- Kenton boat shoes in Suede – $79.20 ($198)
- Cotton cable-knit shawl cardigan sweater – $51.20 ($128)
- Abingdon waxed canvas tote bag – $67.20 ($168)
- Abingdon weekender duffel – $119.20 ($298)
- Ludlow Slim-fit unstructured suit jacket in cotton-linen – $67 ($168)
- Ludlow Slim-fit unstructured suit pant in cotton-linen – $39 ($98)
The un-suit sale isn’t new (those were 60% off last week), but I do believe the bags and shoes are a new addition to the 60% off price tier.
BONUS III Ledbury: Extra 30% off Summer Sale w/ SUMMERTIME
- The Lavender Carrington Windowpane Dress Shirt – $55.30 ($135)
- The Light Blue Crestwood Heather Windowpane Dress Shirt – $55.30 ($135)
- The Blue Carrington Windowpane Dress Shirt – $55.30 ($135)
- The Blue Buckley Performance Gingham Casual Shirt – $55.30 ($125)
- The Blue Dearborn Dot Dress Shirt – $55.30 ($125)
UPDATE: Standby. As of early Thursday morning this isn’t live yet? Fingers crossed it launches soon.
UPDATE II: Okay, it’s live! Extra 30% off summer sale items w/ SUMMERTIME. Good for one use, per customer, through 7/6.
Now we’re talking. They upped the ante (or would that be reduced the ante?) on their summer sale already. It’s hard to find Ledbury stuff at this price. Ledbury stuff isn’t cheap! Not a huge selection of items here, but still worth a look for those who are Ledbury Curious and or established Ledbury Fans who want to save a few bucks.
Also worth a mention:
- Brooks Brothers: They’re running a five sale shirts for $200 deal. $40 is pretty low for a BB shirt, albeit select sale styles.
- Todd Snyder: Up to 50% off Summer Sale Event
- Bonobos: Extra 50% off sale items w/ MAKEMOVES. Full picks here.
- EXPRESS: Extra 50% off Clearance Items.
- Hill City: They’re still running 30% off sitewide.
- Allen Edmonds: They’re claiming new additions to their sale section, but I’m not seeing much? Seems like we’ve covered most of it already. Suede Liverpools for $199 are a new addition, and that’s a pretty solid price.
