It’s On Sale: (Almost) Everything at Bench & Loom

Bench & Loom is having a clear-out sale. Everything except their Chapal jackets is available at 50% off with the discount code END50. The available stock at this point is pretty slim, but there’s still a full run of sizes for niche brands such as Hansen of Denmark and Black Sign (the latter being a Japanese workwear label). I particularly like the loopwheeled t-shirts from Barns, but be warned that they run slim. A small should only be taken if you usually buy an extra small in everything else. For people who can’t find anything in their size, check out the grooming products from Jack Black

Note, everything here is final sale, and the promotion ends September 1st.

It’s On Sale: (Almost) Everything at Exquisite Trimmings

Nice sale going on at Exquisite Trimmings, an online retailer for high-end men’s accessories. Use the checkout code BANK20 to take 20% off most items. Customers outside of the EU can expect another 20% off for not having to pay European taxes (which is included in the listed price). 

I haven’t gone through everything, but the code seems to work on Drake’s ties and pocket squares, as well as Exquisite Trimming’s house line of ready-to-wear and bespoke ties. There are some handsome striped grenadines that come down to $60 with the discount, and bespoke ties starting at $104. The selection of ancient madder and wool challis is especially tempting, given how close we are to fall. 

Some other notables:

Code expires September 1st.

It’s On Sale: Stuff at Kafka and Ledbury

Both Kafka and our advertiser Ledbury are having some nice sales right now. 

  • At Kafka, there are some things from brands such as Engineered Garments, Nigel Cabourn, Common Projects, and Inis Meain. There’s also this one lonely pair of Alden shoes, which I wish were in my size. Note, customers outside of the EU can expect 20% off for VAT deduction (VAT being European taxes, which are included in the listed price). You can also knock another 20% off with the coupon code EXTRA20, which brings already discounted prices even lower. 
  • Next, a good selection of shirts have been discounted at Ledbury. Included are some very basic blue Bengal stripes and graph checks, as well as seasonal brushed cottons and linens

It’s On Sale: Stuff at Gentlemen’s Footwear

Gentlemen’s Footwear is having a storewide sale. There are three discount codes, which apply to different things:

  • Use code extra10 for non-sale shoes.
  • For one week only, from 08/25 through 08/31, you can use the code summer10 to receive an extra 10% off shoes that have already been marked down in their sale section.
  • Use code accessory20 for tie, pocket square, scarf purchases over $200. Applies to everything from Drake’s and E.G. Cappelli, including those items that have already been marked down. 

Discounts aren’t that deep, but the goods are exceptionally nice. 

Barney’s Warehouse Sale
For our readers in or around New York City, Barney’s famous Warehouse Sale starts today. I imagine the deals won’t be as good as they’ve been in the past. Barney’s has been able to clear a lot of their unsold merchandise through their online “Warehouse” shop, and they recently had a crazy fire sale. Still, if you want to check it out, the physical sale is being held today through September 1st at the Metropolitan Pavilion. The address is 110 West 19th Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues). You can find more information here.

It’s On Sale: 3sixteen Jeans
3sixteen has their two-tone stitched jeans on sale (where the jeans have two different colors for the stitching). These are marked down about 25% from the regular price, and come in the company’s black and indigo denim. Note, if you want their jeans without the two-tone stitching, Self Edge will most likely have them on sale later this year. They typically do a sale once a season, and at a discount percentage that matches the year (so this year, it’ll be 14% off, most likely). 
Also on sale is this camp stool, which I want for no good reason.

It (Will Be) On Sale: Viberg Boots
The second half of Viberg’s online sample sale is going up this Monday at 12 noon, Pacific Standard Time. If you’re interested in anything, it’s probably a good idea to acquaint yourself with the company’s lasts and sizing now, so that you can get what you want before things disappear. The better deals typically don’t last longer than a few minutes on their site. You can learn more about Viberg’s sizing at StyleForum (just use the “search this thread” feature). 
For what it’s worth, in their 2030 last, which is what most of their flagship service boots are built on, I find that I have to size down a full size (so if you normally take a 9D, I’d recommend an 8D). Many people on StyleForum, however, recommend only going down half a size (so 8.5D).

It’s On Sale: Denim Therapy Credit
Another nice deal on Denim Therapy credit. Gilt is offering $40 or $80 in store credit with the denim repair company for half off. You can use these guys to repair rips, holes, tears, or any other kind of damage in your jeans, and get a bit more life out of your denim. Also good for chainstitched hemming.

It’s On Sale: TM Lewin Shirts

If you’ve never ordered from TM Lewin before, they’re offering a 10% discount on your whole order with the checkout code FIRST. The percentage doesn’t sound like much, but given the company’s already aggressive pricing, this could be a great opportunity to pick up some dress shirts. Their regular price is four for $160, but with the coupon code, that gets dropped to $144 (so $36 per shirt). Shipping is free. 

I particularly like the company’s slim fit models. If the cut is the same as it was many years ago, it should be slimmer than Brooks Brothers’ slim fit, but not as slim as Brooks’ extra slim (I think this is a good thing). They’re perhaps best compared to Ralph Lauren’s “custom fit.” For their price point, these would be hard to beat.

It’s on Sale: Tricker’s Shoes and Boots at Frans Boone
One of my favorite web shops, Frans Boone, has discounted its line of Tricker’s makeups by 50 percent with the code SUMMER50, putting many shoes and boots in the $250-$300 range (cordovan $450-$500), including shipping to the United States. Tricker’s are sturdy British shoes and the models Frans Boone carries take full advantage of that, with uppers in scotch grain like the brogues pictured above, or “repello” suede, a treated, water resistant suede, as well as Dainite or Vibram rubber soles—perfect for the upcoming fall weather in the United States.
Two things to note: sizes are quite limited (one or two per model), and orders to the United States may incur brokerage fees from UPS (i.e., you may owe the UPS driver a small check when he shows up to deliver your shoes).
