PF Flyers


PF Flyers Center Lo
Save $10: It’s hard to beat the casual versatility of canvas sneakers for warm weather. As winter transitions into spring, it’s worth investing in a fresh new pair to break in before the dog days of summer. If Cons or Vans aren’t your style, check out this blacked-out pair from PF Flyers. They feature a rugged canvas upper, vulcanized rubber outsole and detailing unique to the brand. For a limited time at Zappos, they’re $10 off. — John Zientek

Hamilton


Hamilton Intra-Matic
Save 36%: Hamilton’s retro-inspired Intra-Matic is a throwback to a thin dress watch the brand made back in the 1960s and one of our favorite mechanical timepieces under a grand. While this new version is on the large side of things at 42mm, it’s a spot-on reproduction of the original watch, thanks to a slim case, thin automatic movement and a handsome, brushed steel dial. Normally the Intra-Matic retails for $945 but Macy’s has it marked down to $803. What’s more, when you use the code VIP at checkout, you’ll save an addition 25 percent and score this handsome mechanical dress watch for just $602. — Andrew Connor

Incase


Incase City Compact Backpack
Save $35: Carrying a briefcase has become an antiquated practice, especially with the other options out there, namely backpacks. A work backpack is pretty useless unless it’s durable with an easy-to-access laptop pocket and comfortable to wear. Incase City Compact Backpack fits the bill and the gunmetal grey color is on sale now for 35% off. — Meg Lappe

If you’re looking for some passive bookshelf speakers to hook up to your home’s stereo system, consider these an audiophile-grade option that’s actually affordable. — Tucker Bowe, Staff Writer

Victorinox Fibrox 8-Inch Chef’s Knife
Save 33%: The Victorinox Fibrox 8-inch Chef’s Knife is a low-maintenance, do-it-all kitchen knife that you can buy for the price of two movie tickets. The knife’s popularity is earned from its usage by professional line cooks looking for an affordable, effective blade that won’t cause moping if ruined (if that even happens — mine is going strong through two years of unruly abuse). The ever-so-slightly curved Fibrox handle works well for handle-grippers and thumb-grippers alike, and it’s entirely dishwasher safe. The Victorinox is the internet’s favorite knife — and for $30, about $10 cheaper than its average Amazon price, you’re getting a time-tested kitchen tool that will do what you need it to. –Will Price

Rare Japanese Whiskies
Save 20%: A gift for your boss’s birthday? Early Father’s Day shopping? An extra-long week ahead of you? Whatever your reason or justification, taking the form of 20 percent off their entire collection of rare bottles, the Japanese whisky sellers at Dekanta have provided the perfect diving board into East Asia’s buzzing brown spirit market. Their entire collection includes more than 800 different whiskies running from as low as the cost of a pair of sunglasses ($100) to as high a decent used car ($7,200). Sale standouts include an 18-year distilled in the shadow of Mount Fuji, a popular but decidedly old-school blend and a bottle whose origin is so mysterious no one even knows where or for how long it was distilled. — Will Price
