Why wait until Black Friday to take advantage of all of the crazy sales and discounts? I don't know about you, but I tend to avoid the malls and department stores during this time of the year.
Most companies start offering price cuts and promo codes in late November anyway, and I'd rather shop from my couch than fight the crowds.
Here are a few awesome deals that you can take advantage of today:
Readers who bought my eBook already know about this deal because it's been available for them for a while now (and will continue to be after the holiday specials have come and gone).
For everyone else, Blank Label is offering an amazing free gift when you spend $100 or more on their shirts or a gift card.
What is it, you ask? Oh, just a free $70 handmade-in-NYC necktie, like these:
Blank Label is also offering free standard shipping on any order AND free expedited shipping on orders of two or more shirts. This means you can get two custom shirts, a free handmade tie and free expedited shipping.
It's a crazy deal. If you've been on the fence about made-to-measure shirts, now is the time to give custom a chance.
Of all the deals I'm going to share with you, this is one of the best. Express is offering three separate Black Friday specials that you won't want to miss:
Wednesday 11/21 – Friday 11/23: EVERYTHING 50% OFF! Until Noon on Friday. 40% Off After Noon.
Saturday 11/24 & Sunday 11/25: Save $15 Off $30, $30 Off $75, $60 Off Your $150 Purchase with promo code: 2472
Monday 11/26 Cyber Monday: 40% OFF EVERYTHING! Plus FREE SHIPPING! Online only.
Express is great for sweaters and coats. I don't own any of their jeans, so I can't vouch for them. My favorite (and only) peacoat, however, is from there:
I paid full price for it, but you can get it for just $159 right now. Also, I've got my eyes on this jacket as a more casual alternative to the peacoat:
It's on sale right now for $149. Grab it while it's hot!
Go to Shoes.com and use the code 15OFF when you're checking out to get 15% off your entire order AND free shipping (expires on January 2, 2013).
Been wanting to step up your workplace style with a new pair of dress shoes? Why not save forty bucks on these Johnston & Murphy wing tips:
Or, if you're set on dress shoes, maybe it's time to expand your wardrobe with some Chukka-style boots, like these ECCO Men's Turn GTX Boots:
We don't really get into grooming here at The Modest Man, but Grooming Lounge is one of the coolest men's grooming supplies companies that I know of, and they have a sweet holiday deal going on right now.
Head on over to GroomingLounge.com and use the code 50XSAVEX15 to get $15 off any order of over $100 (expires on November 27, 2012).
For example, grab a few of “The Greatest Shave Ever” kits for the men in your family (and perhaps one for yourself).
Or, if you know someone who might enjoy classic shaving, grab a pair of Merkur “Heavy Classic” double-edged safety razors, and you can both start shaving like your grandpa did.
This one is for those of you who want a new suit, especially if you've been thinking about going custom…
I haven't bought a suit from Indochino yet, but I do own one of their custom blazers. This is a great opportunity to save over $200 on a made-to-measure suit.
This deal expires on November 26th, so don't let it pass you by! If you are buying your first suit, I recommend The Essential Grey Suit.
I discovered REISS through their Georgetown store in DC when I was looking for new trousers and dress shirts for a new job a couple of years ago. Their clothes are a little pricey, which is why this deal is so cool.
From Thursday, November 22, to Monday, November 26, you can get 20% off full price products PLUS free shipping to U.S. customers.
Note: I did have to get the shirt sleeves shortened by about an inch and the pants hemmed.
Also, right now, REISS has a bunch of stuff for 50% off as part of their mid-season sale. This is a GREAT opportunity to pick up some very high quality clothes for very reasonable prices. Click “Shop Now” to browse.
Sometimes I feel like Banana Republic should have me on their payroll since I'm constantly promoting them. I can't help it. I just really like their clothing and think that they make some great stuff for shorter men.
Of course, BR isn't good for everything. There sell plenty of things that men of short stature should avoid. To get an idea of what's good and what to stay away from, read this.
Now through Thursday, the 22nd, Banana Republic is offering select style up to 40% off regular price. Noteworthy items include:
- Slim Fit Chino (a slimmer version of the Heritage Chinos) –
- Vintage Straight Jean (for the bigger guys) –
- Heritage Slim-Fit Selvedge Jean (for the slimmer guys) –
- Wool Scarves (a little pricey, but nice) –
- Wool-Blend Crew-Neck Sweaters (snug fit, and warm) –
That's all I've got for you today. Definitely make use of these awesome holiday specials before they go away.
