Of course, there’s already an ongoing 60% markdown on a few items, but this particular corner of their online store is dedicated to finds under $100. For now, the men’s pickings are limited to t-shirts, slippers, sunglasses (like the quay shields pictured above) and the occasional duffel bag, but we hear there’s more in the pipeline, and if the women’s items are any indication, they should be worth the wait.
It’s getting blustery out there, but there are still lots of options if you don’t want to give in to the synthetic parka just yet.
Fashion Indie just tipped us off to Harmon, a grayscale-prone line that just had the good fortune of landing at Oak, the most-favored boutique for downtown Manhattan fashion-heads. We have to say, it was a good pickup. They might be too forward for non-hipsters, but the duffle coat has been in great need of an update for some time, and these folks seem primed to give it one. Of course, if you’re willing to give the parka another try, we could recommend a place for that too.
Put on your helmet and get ready to throw down: Black Friday is nigh. Granted, the aisles will be packed and you're more likely to get a deal on a flatscreen than a peacoat—but there are still sales worth a survey. Good luck and Godspeed.
