Fourth of July Sales
It’s pretty unlikely that I’ll be doing any shopping today, but I couldn’t help but notice all the sales going on this weekend. I’m generally not a big fan of holiday sales but I will admit that they can be a good opportunity to purchase seasonally relevant clothing before the weather begins to change. Here are a few quick picks:
Sierra Trading Post: 40% off some items
These “some items” sales are usually limited enough to not get my attention, but this time around they include these excellent Woodlore shoe trees (now under $12 each). I have quite a few pairs, and this is about as low as they go. Note that you must be signed up for STP’s DealFlyer newsletter to have access to this sale.
Barney’s: up to 60% off
Sizes are starting to get very limited, but some one-size-fits-all items like these Drake’s ties (for $59) are still available and well-priced.
J. Crew: 40-50% off sale items with code SHOPMORE.
Readers of this blog know that I tend to avoid J. Crew’s shirts and tailored clothing due to their skinny lapels and collars, but I have had good experiences with their chinos, outerwear, and sweaters. There are a few nautically-striped crewneck sweaters available, like this cotton/cashmere one for under $36 and this linen/cotton sweater for under $48. There are also some Urban Slim Fit chinos for $15-30, NATO straps starting at only $9, and a hodgepodge of other things. It’s also worth noting that J. Crew Factory is running a free shipping and 40-60% off everything sale, so there are some great prices over there as well.
Equus Leather: free shipping to USA with code 4JULY
All of my belts are from Charlie and Dawn at Equus. They make great stuff, and I highly recommend it. You can see my review here.
Ralph Lauren: extra 30% off sale items with code HAPPY4TH.
I wasn’t too impressed with the current sale selection here, but I did notice that this leather moto jacket was discounted to $770. Pricey, but it’s a great looking jacket (and last year’s model was a favorite of Derek’s). On the other end of the price spectrum, these simple leather card cases are going for just $42.
YOOX: extra 10% off all orders with code YOOX4TH.
If you’re looking to expand your collection of soft, unstructred blazers, now is a good time to do it. Here’s a search query for many of the most popular brands. Sizes and colors are all over the map, as is the norm for this site.
