Post-Christmas Sales - Some Quick Picks
I’m not sure how I feel about the idea of post-Christmas sales, but I can’t deny the fact that there are some good deals to be had. There are many sales going on right now, so if you’ve been eyeing something online it may be worth looking to see if the price has dropped. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some items that caught my eye:
Ralph Lauren - 25% off sale items with MERRY25
The famous cable-knit cashmere sweater is on a surprisingly deep discount ($158 from $398). Lots of colors and sizes available. I own this one and I can say that in my experience it is higher quality than the similar offerings at J. Crew and Brooks Brothers. Expensive, but a good deal; this is the lowest that I have seen them go.
Also, these suede jodphur boots ($112 from $198) were popular last time they went on sale, and they’re $5 less now. Jodphur boots are definitely an acquired taste, but if you’re into them then this is a great deal.
Howard Yount - sale prices as noted
Stock and available sizes are all over the place, but there are some good finds. Some of the flannel trousers are priced at or below $165, which is as low as they will go. I’m a big fan - you can see my review of Howard Yount flannels here.
Mr. Porter - up to 50% off
Most of Mr. Porter’s offerings are too rich for my blood, but some of their accessories can come down to accessible prices during sales. For instance, this navy/white dot shantung silk tie by Drake’s ($85 from $170) would make a great staple tie.
Brooks Brothers - End-of-season Sale + 15% kicker
As I’ve mentioned before, using the multi-buy discounts can be beneficial here; oxford shirts come down to $51 (from $95) if you buy three. Also, check out the sale section for other items with large reductions (like these Supergas at under $50).
