It’s On Sale: Nigel Cabourn at Marrkt

The British flash sale site Marrkt is very quiet, but they do have semi-annual sales on the brilliant English designer Nigel Cabourn. Their Spring/Summer sale just went up, and it’s really full of great stuff. The green military shirt-jacket pictured above is one I own and wear all the time, and the other two are ones I wish were on sale in my size.

Orders ship to the US free(!), and folks outside of the EU get a 20% discount in the cart to account for VAT. Remember that these are Euro sizes so drop ten - I’ve found that a 52 is a pretty true 42.

Here’s our invite if you don’t have an account already.

It’s On Sale: Aldens

Readers living in or near Vancouver, Canada might be interested to know that Roden Gray is offering a 20% discount on all Aldens. The deal is only good for in-store purchases, however, and the promotion starts tomorrow (Friday) and ends Sunday. 

It’s On Sale: Ralph Lauren Fishing Bag

I’ve been using the tan version of this bag a lot in the last year. The canvas isn’t as thick as what you might find on a Filson, and the leather quality could be a bit better, but the build is still solid and I like the design. It’s styled after fishing bags - such as the ones sold by Brady - but, when compared to the originals, it looks less conspicuous in a city environment. It’s been a go-to for me when I need something more casual than a full leather briefcase. 

It’s on sale at Ralph Lauren for $220 (down from $330), but at the moment, you can knock another 30% off with the checkout code HAPPY4TH. That puts it at $154. 

They also have a vintage style backpack that I really like, but unfortunately, the extra 30% discount doesn’t apply. 

It’s On Sale: Almost Everything at Berg & Berg

Berg & Berg just started their seasonal sale, with 30-50% discounts given on their whole spring/ summer collection. Included are some really nice over-the-calf socks for about $16, beautiful leather belts starting at $40, and neckties starting as low as $38 (textured, grenadine-ish silks are going for $45, and they have some nice solid linens in there as well). They’ve also discounted some of their leather folios, which you can use as a laptop sleeve. I bought a toffee brown one a while ago, and use it to carry my 13” Macbook. 

It’s On Sale: Viberg Sample Sale
Viberg is holding a sample sale tomorrow. Viberg, for those unfamiliar, is a Canadian workboot manufacturer with a long, long history. Recently, they made a small spin-off from their regular line, which consists of more “fashionable” workboots for the style-conscious crowd. Lots of service boots, mainly, although they also have a range of other styles (hiking boots, Engineer boots, etc). 
Full retail on these is expensive, with most starting around $750 for calf and suede, and $1,100 for shell cordovan (the shell service boots you see above sold out in 45 seconds after they were released). No details yet on what the sample prices might be, but last time they did this, shoes were as low as $350. The sample sale will be held in three parts, with the first part starting tomorrow, 12 noon PST, at Viberg’s site. 
Before buying, you might want to acquaint yourself with Viberg’s sizing and lasts. You can use this StyleForum thread as a resource (the search feature is helpful). I find that in their 2030 last, I need to size down a full size (so instead of a 9, I take an 8). There’s some debate, however, as lots of people prefer sizing down only half a size. For what it’s worth, I’m a medium/ D-width fitting.

It’s On Sale: The Hill-Side Sample Sale

The Hill-Side make simple, often square-bottomed ties, rough-hewn pocket squares and scarves and the occasional accessory from a huge variety of fascinating fabrics. They really have a rare eye for textiles, and I can tell they’re as fond of vintage stuff as I am. It really sets them apart in the world of casual-tailored and “workwear” clothing.

They’re having an online sample sale at the moment, with ties at $30, scarves at $25 and pocket squares at $15. Definitely worth checking out.

It’s On Sale: Ledbury Shirts
Impressive sale going on at Ledbury. Some of their short run shirts have been put on sale, and you can take an additional 25% off with the checkout code TOPITOFF25. That puts some of these as low as $59, which is down from prices as high as $165. Being that it’s summer right now, I like this striped blue linen piece. 
Note, all sales are final and the promotion ends Monday.

It’s On Sale: Hydrogen-1 Sneakers
Hydrogen-1 just started their summer sale. The build quality on these is excellent, and easily just as nice as any of the more expensive brands on the market. If you sort through their designs, you can also find some that are minimalistic and simple enough to go with nearly any kind of casualwear. I particularly like those white low-tops you see above, which are also available in brown suede. Both are on sale right now for $200. Kind of a crazy price for sneakers, to be sure, but a step up in quality from the $95 sneakers by Kent Wang, and not nearly as expensive as the $400 Achilles from Common Projects. 
Note these are final sale, but from my experience, Hydrogen-1’s shoes run true-to-size (meaning your Brannock size).

It’s on Sale: Private Sale at Unionmade
One of my favorite shops just put much of its stock on sale for 40% off. Use “FIRSTDIBS” at checkout to get the discount. Size runs are limited and sales are final, but there’s a lot of interesting stock left from brands like Golden Bear, Levi’s Vintage Cothing, Mackintosh, Boglioli, Ts(s), Beams+, and others. According to some Styleforum posters, the code worked on some of Unionmade’s Alden makeups, but I couldn’t find any that seemed to work.
