L.L. Bean Labor Day Sale
Save 25%: Heritage New England outdoor brand L.L.Bean has been in business for over 100 years. Its first-ever product? The sort-of ugly, undeniably-iconic Bean Boot. Leon Leonwood Bean (yeah, that’s what the L.L. stands for) designed them as a solution to prevent wet feet while hunting in Maine’s damp conditions. The design of the boot hasn’t changed much since: it features a stout rubber bottom and a hardy leather upper, which makes them ideal for winter’s inclement conditions. The boots have spread beyond hunting though, and now come in different heights with various linings for different temperatures and uses. Right now, there’s an extensive collection of Bean Boot models (as well as apparel) up for sale on L.L.Bean’s website — just use the code LABORDAY at checkout.

A.P.C. Jeans
Save 30%: Founded in 1987, Paris-based A.P.C. made a name for itself perfecting the wardrobe staples. Abstaining from obtuse branding and superfluous details, the brand instead focuses on quality fabrics and timeless silhouettes. Though much of what A.P.C. offers is notable, the brand’s jeans have something of a cult following because they don’t look like a typical pair of Levi’s — they’re slim without being skinny and they have a slightly tapered leg. If you’re in the market for a new pair jeans, East Dane is currently offering 30 percent of three A.P.C. Jeans. With both indigo and black options available, this sale is a great chance to save on some tasteful denim that won’t go out of style anytime soon. — John Zientek
