Herschel Supply Co. Backpack Sale
Save 25%+: Herschel Supply Co. makes backpacks that hit all the right notes. Each bag comes with just the right amount of pockets, lined with an easy-to-see everything fabric and the metallic or leather zippers and buckles are beautiful accent sprinkles. Today, thanks to Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale, you can pick up a variety of backpacks on sale, starting at 25 percent off. Whether your style veers into minimalist or is slightly louder there’s a backpack here for you. We picked a few of our favorites to help get you started. — Meg Lappe
Uniqlo X Tomas Maier Supima T-Shirt
Save $5: If you want a quality t-shirt at a reasonable price, you won’t do much better than one of Uniqlo’s accessibly-priced Supima options. Supima, which makes up about one percent of the cotton grown worldwide, and is an extra-long staple cotton that’s both exceptionally durable and soft. Earlier this summer, Uniqlo partnered with Tomas Maier to improve the basic Uniqlo Supima t-shirt, adding (most importantly) a front pocket, as well as a v-insert below the collar and ribbing around the sleeves and neck. Now, Uniqlo has the shirt marked down $5 from its retail price, making it an even better deal than before. — Andrew Connor
Vault by Vans Twisted Leather Sneakers
Save 29%: Now at Need Supply, you can pick up a pair of uncommon Vans sneakers for a serious deal. The shoes are a part of the Vault by Vans premium sub-brand which reimagines classic Vans styles in limited-edition makeups. This collection features a unique upper that has twisted leather vents at lateral and medial sides. To balance the unorthodox upper, other details are classic Vans: each style includes the iconic side stripe and omnipresent waffle sole. Available in black and natural colorways, these sneakers are now 29 percent off and start at $85. If you like Vans, but want something a little unconventional, these are worth checking out. — John Zientek
JackRabbit Sneaker Sale
Save 50%: With sneaker deals this steep, we urge to run, don’t walk, to your nearest JackRabbit and stock up on kicks for the fall. With race season upon us, it’s necessary to start logging miles, which means you’re going to need a good rotation of shoes. While that’s typically not feasible for everyone, with deals this steep, you can grab two pairs of shoes for the price of one. Whether you’re running in the gym or lifting weight, these sneakers will look great and perform in all conditions. There are too many to choose from, so we pulled out a few of our favorites. — Meg Lappe
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Save on a wide range of products: The Seattle-based retailer just put some of its choicest merchandise on sale, including things that rarely get discounted, like luggage from Tumi, shirts from the iconic Swedish brand Eton and denim from Levi’s higher-end Made and Crafted brand. — Justin Fenner
Stuart and Lau Weekender Duffle
Save 40%: This bag is dapper. Handsome. Maybe a bit proper, at first glance. But even if your bag looks like it has a British accent — doesn’t that umbrella holder just scream London to you? — you can still use it to haul whatever fits inside, wherever you’re going. The must-have smaller organizational pockets (inside and out) will keep your smaller bits of gear or valuables from getting mixed up with your muddy shoes, sweaty travel clothes or bundles of money you just saved. And thanks to an updated weatherproof main-body construction, plus the hardy full-grain leather straps, it’s absolutely ready to tackle more than just trips to the airport — unlike the duffle bag stylish guys of yesteryear might’ve carried.
Good luggage is an investment, and this is one bag worth investing in — but do it now, while you can still save $150 and get it in a few different colors. — Andy Frakes
Twillory Clearance Sale
Save up to 50%: Twillory just slashed the prices on its well-made, non-iron shirts by up to 50 percent, depending on how many you buy. The shirts normally go for $99, but right now you can get two for $109.99, three for $159.99 or four or more for $49.99 each. — Justin Fenner
Sedici Fuori Carbon Helmet
Save 46%:Despite being in mass market products for more than a few years now, carbon fiber, well, anything, tends to be more expensive than products made with more conventional materials. However, because the woven material is lighter and stronger than steel, investing a few extra dollars in a carbon fiber motorcycle helmet is justifiable, even if they are on the higher side of the price spectrum. Which makes the Fuori Carbon Helmet by Sedici such a tempting proposition at just $150. — Bryan Campbell
Two Well-Reviewed Sous-Vide Tools
Save $20: In the relatively small world of sous-vide cookers, there are essentially two models that are roundly recommended — the ChefSteps Joule and the Anova Culinary Precision Cooker — and both are still at Prime-Day price levels.
The Anova model is marked down more, though, and comes with recommendations from Wirecutter and Engadget (notice the Joule is runner-up on both reviews). Anova’s sous-vide tool, which usually sells for a whopping $200, is just above $100 right now.
For those who haven’t taken the plunge yet, sous-vide cooking is a method of cooking in which you place food in resealable bags (yes, they can be Ziploc) and submerge those bags in temperature-controlled, circulating water to cook. That last bit is what these tools do — circulate the water and regulate temperature. This cooking method is predominantly known for its precision and a forgiving nature — it brings the food to a specific temperature and no further, and it’s nearly impossible to overcook.
More often than not, the Anova model is recommended because of the physical controls on the tool itself (meaning you can change temperature and time on the wand) where the Joule is entirely controlled from a powerful smartphone app.
Both are on sale far below either’s lowest price to date. — Will Price
Saturdays NYC Wardrobe Essentials
Save 50%: Right now, you can save 50 percent on SS18, PS18 and Mr Porter collections from Saturdays NYC. The sale is a great opportunity to stock up on summer wardrobe essentials including tees, shorts, hoodies and more. There’s an incredible amount of inventory available and prices range from $24 to $273 (though the majority of garments cost well under $100). If you’ve been contemplating adding a few more pieces to your summer wardrobe and have some money to spare, this sale is definitely worth checking out. — John Zientek
Save Up to $67: Hemel makes military-inspired watches and has two excellent timepieces marked down on Huckberry right now. Your choices are as follows: the HFT20 chronograph and the Tracker field watch. The former is inspired by Type 20 military chronographs from the 1950s, and features a “mecha-quartz” movement from Seiko (which combines elements of both mechanical and quartz timekeeping), a stainless steel rotating bezel and a hefty 42mm. The latter is inspired by the general-issue A-11 from WWII and features an automatic Miyota movement as well as a more compact 40mm case. — Andrew Connor
Saxx Underwear Two-Pack
Save 37%: If you’re a frequent listener of podcasts, then chances are you’ve heard the phrases “life-changing” and “industry-disrupting” attached to advertisements for new products and brands. Maybe some of those even referred to underwear. Saxx does not sandwich ads within installments of Serial or S-Town, but its underwear is pretty spectacular.
The keystone feature of Saxx’s underwear is as suggestive as the brand’s name, if slightly more punny; it’s called the Ballpark Pouch, and it does exactly what you think it would. Designed with the specific contours of the male body in mind, the Ballpark Pouch prevents chafing while taking underwear comfort into new territory. It’s one of those things that sounds gimmicky, but it’s true. These drawers call for slightly more engineering than your typical boxers and briefs, so they’re somewhat more pricey (and worth it, in my opinion).
Right now though, a two-pack of Saxx’s Vibe briefs, which are made with a blend of moisture-wicking viscose fabric and spandex, cost $40 on Massdrop. Usually, these go for $32 a pair, so it’s nearly a two-for-one deal, and an opportune time to upgrade your undies. — Tanner Bowden
Alternative Apparel USA Keeper Tee
Save 64%: Right now, you can pick up the perfect gray t-shirt for just $10. The super-soft USA Keeper Tee from Alternative Apparel is 64 percent off at Nordstrom Rack and is available in sizes XS through XXL. Made in North Carolina, the tee is cut from a 4.4-ounce blend of Texan cotton and recycled polyester from South Carolina. It’s lightweight and breathable, and features a timeless silhouette — you’d be hard-pressed to find a better t-shirt for the price. — John Zientek
Modular Pens From Inventery
Save 25%: No matter how digital the world becomes, nothing can replace the feel of ink on paper. When in search of a fine-crafted pen, versatility isn’t typically one of the factors that come into play — but maybe it should be.
The Inventery Pocket Fountain Pen is a compact and adaptable writing tool, able to switch between fountain pen and ballpoint pen. It also features an interchangeable cap system for a clip, clipless or a stylus and keychain. That additional universal stylus cap for touchscreens and tablets makes it a modern modular apparatus set to tackle any writing task. — Gear Patrol
Get 25-percent off the Inventery Pocket Fountain Pen with discount code GP25.
Suitsupply Outlet Sale
Save up to 50%: Tasteful affordable suiting doesn’t have to be an oxymoron, and thanks to Suitsupply’s Outlet Sale, it isn’t. You can now save up to 50 percent on suit styles from last season, along with jackets, trousers, shirts and more. The suits feature quality Italian fabric and modern tailored silhouettes. Less expensive options utilize half-canvas construction while a few more costly styles are fully canvassed, and prices start at $249 for a two-piece suit. To shop the sale, use the code

Alpinestars Racefend Gloves
Save 20%: The Alpinestars Racefend Gloves are built with off-road and dirt riding first and foremost. Proper ventialtion, maximum movement and comfort are critical characteistics in motorcycle gloves when consider how much work your hands are doing when riding off-road. The Clarino palm and silicon strips on the fore- and middle-finger gives riders the grip on the controls they need regardles of weather or elements. And even though off-road riding was the main focus, if you need a lightweight glove to run into town on a hot day, Racefend can stetch its responsibilities slightly. However, at higher speed highway rides the limited amount of armor won’t cut it if and when you need the protection.— Bryan Campbell

Save 43%: Founded in 2009, Belgian accessories brand Komono melds a minimalist aesthetic with a tasteful color palette.

Right now, a bunch of different frames are 43 percent off at Need Supply and prices start at just $40. But to take advantage of this deal, make sure to use the code TAKE20 at checkout. — John Zientek

The Aros Chino from Norse Projects is a versatile pair cut from medium-weight fabric that is appropriate for a range of seasons. This slim-fit design is available in navy, black and khaki colorways and is now 37 percent off at End — that’s savings of $46. — John Zientek
