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).

It’s On Sale: Shoes at Leffot

New markdowns on sale prices at Leffot. Some things that caught my eye:

Note, sale items are not returnable. 

It’s On Sale: Carson Street Clothiers

NY shop Carson Street Clothiers carries a broad selection of interesting tailoring (mostly Italian) and cool-guy casual stuff. They just marked down their sale section so that everything is 50%-70% off, leading to some low prices on typically expensive items, like this Valstar leather blouson, MAN1924 linen/cotton safari jacket, SNS Herning sweater, Ami cotton/linen shirt, Buttero sneakers, Mismo briefcase, and Carson Street’s trim house label trousers in hopsack wool. Two things to note: not all sizes and items shown are in stock—you have to add them to your bag to get an out of stock notice; and returns are limited (items discounted 60% or more are not returnable; other sale items can be returned within 14 days).

It’s On Sale: Luciano Barbera at Vente Privee
Vente Privee is offering a broad variety of Luciano Barbera clothing, from suits to sportcoats to ties, for about 80% off. I think the outerwear, clocking in at about a grand for an overcoat, is a particularly excellent value for those of you looking for something beautiful that you can wear almost every day in cold weather, all winter long.

It’s On Sale: Select Items at Sid Mashburn

Sid Mashburn’s sale just started. Discounts aren’t that deep, but the products are nice. Somethings that caught my eye: 

It’s On Sale: Eastland Made-in-Maine Moccasins 
For some reason, Eastland’s Made-in-Maine line has never really caught on with the menswear crowd. I’ve never really been sure why, given the popularity of similar brands such as Rancourt and Quoddy, but the shoes are great for their niche — Made-in-Maine moccasin construction, with leathers that are more often than not from Horween. There’s some stuff one can nitpick about the quality, but they’re all-in-all a pretty good purchase once they go on sale. 
On the upside, their under-the-radar presence means that they often get discounted much more than other brands. Like now, at East Dane, where the brand’s Falmouth mocs can be had for $124. Pretty good price for what I think is a nice casual shoe. 
East Dane has also other shoes from Eastland Made-in-Maine and Quoddy you can check out.

It’s On Sale: Drake’s Accessories

Drake’s just started their online sale. Lots of ties, pocket squares, and scarves on discount — mostly from their spring/ summer stock, but they also have plenty of year round silks in there, and even a couple of wools you can save for fall. The company seems to have gotten a bit more creative with prints this season. Everything looks great, but as usual, I gravitate towards the more basic stuff. Above: Some solid colored, textured ties in Shetland wool and a wool/ silk/ linen blend; a navy silk foulard; and a classic regimental

Customers outside of the EU can deduct 20% from their total order for not having to pay VAT (European taxes). And depending on what you’re buying, you might find cheaper prices at East Dane, No Man Walks Alone, Barney’s, and Carson Street Clothiers.

It’s On Sale: Inventory’s Inventory

Inventory is a great shop for casualwear. Much of what they sell is workwear, although they also have some nice nondescript basics from brands such as John Smedley and Margaret Howell. At the moment, they’re holding their spring/ summer sale, where select items have been discounted by up to 30%. 

Included in the stock are sweatshirts from The Real McCoys in grey, navy, and oatmeal, as well as some nice (but expensive) field and deck jackets from the same company. There are also some good deals on workwear shirts from Engineered Garments and Orslow, as well as a pair of plain toe bluchers from Trickers. Lastly, I really like the Needles Rebuild line. Some of it can be pretty wacky, but I bought a field jacket from them a few months ago and have been wearing it every so often with jeans. Just be careful with their sizing. Since every piece is uniquely made, the cuts can vary slightly even within the same size. 

It’s On Sale: Everything at San Francisco’s Club Monaco
This one is very city specific, but good Lord — we’ve posted so much about crazy sample sales in NYC that I often feel left out as Bay Area resident. This one is to help even the score a bit. 
For folks living in or near San Francisco, the Club Monaco store at the Westfield Mall is closing down for a remodel. To clear everything out, they’re holding a storewide sale, with discounts of up to 75%, even on sale items. One StyleForum member went today and bought a Reigning Champ sweatshirt for $22, a pair of Clarks Wallabees for $27, a Barbour Bedale for $94 (!), and a Barbour Wessex jacket for $137. If there are some non-cotton sweaters there left, I’d recommend those too. They’ve been a go-to for me for years, and the price-to-quality ratio is hard to beat when they’re on deep discount.

It’s On Sale: Footwear at Leffot

Leffot is one of the best men’s footwear stores in the US, if not the world. Brands such as Edward Green, Saint Crispin’s, and Alden are all carried here, sometimes in exclusive make-ups.  Prices are, however, really expensive. On the upside, they’re having a sale right now, with select shoe models discounted by up to 30%. One of the best looking pairs is this Saint Crispin’s austerity brogue, although even with the discount, it’s very pricey. For something more affordable, check out these suede Alden chukkas
