Wolverine 1000 Mile Montague Chelsea Boot
Save 33%: A good pair of Chelsea boots gives you the best of both casual and professional footwear. For example, the Montague from Wolverine 1000 Mile features a sleek silhouette that is appropriate with both pressed slacks and beat-up jeans. The boots include Goodyear welt construction, a sheepskin lining and a durable rubber sole. It’s relaxed comfort with a work-appropriate appearance — and now it’s 33 percent off. — John Zientek
Frye Leather Bags
Save up to 61%: If you want to upgrade your everyday bag, consider investing in an understated leather style. Whether you carry a backpack, a messenger bag or a duffel, you’ll find great options from the leather professionals at Frye. And if you’ve got the money to spend now, Nordstrom Rack is offering up to 61 percent off a range of Frye’s durable leather bags. — John Zientek
Glerups Camp Sole Slip-On
Save 25%: Glerups slippers have received heaps of praise for their sleek design, warm wool upper and natural moisture-wicking abilities. This “Camp Sole” version is especially versatile, given it ditches the standard slipper’s calfskin sole for rubber, offering improved durability and grip. Of course, the caveat to Glerups slippers are their lofty price, but Huckberry is offering a 25 percent discount. — Andrew Connor
The Rover Jacket by Taylor Stitch
Save 33%: Look, there’s no doubting the quality of a classic waxed canvas jacket from Barbour, but spending over $400 for one isn’t always an option. So, when you can find a near identical jacket from a just as reputable brand, like Taylor Stitch, for $200 less, the deal almost makes too much sense. The Rover Jacket from Taylor Stitch has that classic style you’re looking for and is made from 6.25 oz Halley Stevenson Beeswaxed waxed cotton canvas an is lined with moleskin at the collar stand, collar, inside the cuffs and under the pocket flaps. Right now it’s going 33% off its regular price at $200, but that means you’re still saving over an extra $200 on the same jacket with a Barbour label. — Bryan Campbell
MacBook Pro with Touchbar Deal
Save $700: Function keys are out. A new, glimmering multi-touch OLED display is in. Apple’s MacBook Pro line — announced in October 2016 — introduced the world to the Touch Bar, and despite the initial ooh‘s and aah‘s, the tech world seems polarized on whether such a thing is actually worth it — the Touch Bar is only compatible with a select number apps, and Chrome isn’t one of them. But despite that, the Touch Bar MacBook Pro represents the most technologically advanced laptop in Apple’s arsenal. Today, you can save $700 on a brand new one. Upgrade away. — AJ Powell
Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART Lens for Canon
Save $200: If you’re looking to take your portrait photography to the next level, look no further than Sigma’s 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART lens. It’s sharper than Canon’s L series 85mm, sharper than Nikon’s 85mm f/1.4G and is significantly cheaper than both — particularly today when you can pick one up for $200 off. Whether you’re shooting in a studio or on location, the 85mm captures enough of the frame to set your subject in context with the background, without leaving a bunch of dead space at the edges of the frame. It’s long enough that you don’t have to get uncomfortably close to your subject for a headshot, but wide enough that you don’t have to stand in the next room for a shot with perspective.
