Iconic Boots from L.L. Bean
Save $16 L.L. Bean’s duck boots are so popular that the brand has been known to sell out in some years. So while $16 isn’t a massive savings, it’s better to save now than not get a pair at all.— Justin Fenner
Classic Cotton Chinos From Bonobos
Save up to 40%: Bonobos’ Washed Chinos are a solid value, especially in terms of cost-per-wear, at their full retail price of $88. We say that because they go with everything in your wardrobe, can be dressed up or down, are easy to care for and the quality of construction (and material choice) is top-notch.
The brand hasn’t built up such a go-to rep among well-dressed guys by resting on its laurels — but you don’t have to take our word for it. Pick up a pair of these bad boys in navy, olive green or sandy tan for maximal savings ($48 per pair) or spend a bit more for additional color options, and you’ll see why these chinos are so well-respected among the guys who wear them. — Andy Frakes
Vega Sport Protein Sale
Save $27 The world of protein powder is a scary place. The runners on our team often talk about what we do to re-fuel without putting crap into our bodies. My go-to is typically a giant scoop of peanut butter (and then maybe another one), but Vega’s Sport performance protein is a close second choice. I’ve sampled this powder in everything from wake up shakes to post-run peanut butter and banana smoothies, and it’s always tasted great to me. There’s no dry mouthfeel or weird texture with it. You can save $27 when you opt to buy a large tub of the vanilla or chocolate flavors. One thing to note: This deal only lasts until the end of the day, so save while you can. — Meg Lappe
7 For All Mankind
Save 30%As fall nips the air, we find ourselves knee-deep in peak denim season, which means if you’re in need of new jeans it’s time to stock up. The brand 7 For All Mankind is a solid standby, offering tons of different washes, fits and materials. And right now, you can get that quality denim at a massive discount. The brand is offering an additional 30 percent off its sale selection when you use the code 30FAMFRIENDS meaning you can get some great quality denim at an insane price. — Andrew Connor
Red Wing Boots
Save up to 70%: There are plenty of quick and dirty ways in which a company can mass produce leather boots, but in its more than 110 years of business Red Wing has stayed true to methods that lead to the best results. That’s why soldiers fighting in both World War I and World War II trusted Red Wing to shod their feet, and it’s why models like the Iron Ranger, which was initially crafted for iron miners working in Minnesota’s Mesabi Range, continue to endure as a boot fit for both work and casual wear.
That boot, along with a broader selection of Red Wing’s equally-timeless styles, is currently on sale at Sierra Trading Post for as much as 70 percent off. The boots offered in the sale are factory seconds, which means that they’ll last just as long as any other Red Wing products but have an inconsequential blemish or stitching error incurred during the handmade process. Here are three of our favorite styles, but the full selection is worth a look. — Tanner Bowden
Laguiole Steak Knives
Save 30%First things first, these are not genuine Laguiole knives. Genuine Laguiole knives, though the shape is mostly the same, must be made in France and are typically quite a bit more expensive.
These are Laguiole-style steak knives, meaning they borrow the iconic early 19th-century aesthetic developed the tiny French village of Laguiole, and are, rather helpfully, a bit less delicate than the real thing. The serrated, stainless steel blades cut through steak well, are dishwasher-safe and, because the handles are fully sealed, stand up to frequent use well (also, a set of 4 is 30 percent off on Wayfair).
For those interested in the most genuine versions of Laguiole knives still made today, check out Forge de Laguiole and Coutellerie & ForgesHonoré Durand, Laguiole, as both are still made in the village the blade style was invented in and by appropriately trained artisans. — Will Price
Nike Sneaker Sale
Save $30+ Nike has had quite the year of new sneaker releases. From the Epic React to the Pegasus 35 to the Zoom Vaporfly 4% and the Zoom Fly Flyknit, the running sneaker powerhouse continues to pump out new and improved sneakers that keep winning marathons. Eliud Kipchoge ran a new world record in the Zoom Vaporfly 4% sneakers, and Sir Mo Farah won the Chicago marathon setting a new European World Record, also in the 4%. Both the Epic React and Pegasus 35 were designed with athletes in mind. Everything from the foam combination to the design of the heel collar was inspected and thought through with elites. Both pairs of running shoes are on sale today for $35 off in certain colorways. The sizing options are pretty varied, so check them out while you can. — Meg Lappe
Porter-Yoshida and Co. Camouflage Bags
Save 30%: In recent decades, Porter-Yoshida and Co. has garnered attention in North America for its collection of timeless, functional bags. And, it certainly makes sense — the family-owned Japanese brand has been manufacturing different styles since 1962. Each bag showcases a durable nylon outer shell and a meticulously thought-out design. The price of most items reflects the quality materials and design, but if you’re looking to pick up a Porter-Yoshida bag for less, East Dane has a great sale. Now, you can save 30 percent on three camouflage bags from the brand including a backpack, a helmet bag and a waist bag. If you see a style you like, don’t wait — stock is very limited. — John Zientek
