Every Friday we filter through all of the online sale noise and grade your best weekend sale-ing options out there...
And since we’re heading into the sale smorgasbord of Presidents’ Day weekend, we’ve got a supersize edition with more sales, more steals and more handsomeness.
It’s spring jacket season, and one of the all-time classics just went on sale. We’re thinking of the British Baracuta jacket—and right now, you can pick one up for just $60. Our advice: find the trimmest fit they’ve got, and then lock it down before someone else does.
This snap comes via the upcoming Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, in which Tom Hardy conducts spy business in a tan Baracuta. Note the tiny hint of a pattern peeking out from behind the lapel and the cigarette gripped in the manner of James Dean. Nicely done.
This gentleman from the latest Acne show reminded us of a certain oft-overlooked detail.
It’s a simple thing, holding true for denim jackets and Harringtons alike. And it’s the source of the ineffable sharpness radiating from the pic…but naturally, you’re going to have to click through to find out what it is.
While we’re big fans of the tweed-heavy layering look, it’s not the only way to tackle fall. If you prefer a more trim, military vibe, you may want to swap the tweed jacket for another fall staple: the Harrington jacket.

We Have a Winner: The Magnificent Bastard finishes up its March cocktail bracket with a mixture of bourbon, scotch, angostura and apple liqueur. It better be pretty damn good to justify that dash of scotch… [Magnificent Bastard]

The chambray march continues! And while most sartorially-minded folk are using it to add a little texture to the dress shirt, Wings + Horns are eager to make the move to outerwear.
This Baracuta-style item should be landing at Roden Gray in a few weeks, in anticipation of sunnier days, and while we never saw chambray as outer-layer material, we’re ready to be convinced. It’s certainly rumpled enough to stay casual. If you’re feeling adventurous, you might even try a matching scarf.
