Converse sneakers are classics for a reason: they go with just about anything and anyone can pull them off. That also makes them ripe for adding your own style to them, which you can do through Converse’s customization site.
From the classic Chuck Taylor All Star High to the One Star, you can make just about any Converse sneaker your own. You can start with canvas, leather or suede and the options are aplenty from there. Or you can start with an inspiration from other Converse sneakers and add your own touch. The best part? From Nov. 12-15 ALL custom Converse sneakers are 25 percent off when you use the code CUSTOMCON at checkout.
Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Dutch Ovens
Save Up to $40: Beyond a chef’s knife, and maybe your trusty cast-iron skillet, a Dutch oven is the most important (read: versatile) tool in the kitchen. It’s great for soups, stews or even frying up some chicken wings. And a good one will last a lifetime if properly cared for. Any chef worth their salt will recommend one of two French brands — Staub or Le Creuset — but examples from either come with the same caveat: they cost hundreds of dollars.
Lodge, on the other hand, offers a couple of budget-friendly alternatives that, today, start at just $19; the 2-, 5- and 7-quart variants are all discounted on Amazon. They may not look as pretty on your stovetop. But they’ll cook chili just fine.
Rev’It Pilot Jacket
Save 36%: It’s no coincidence bomber jackets look just as good today as they did in the ’40s. Whether it’s snug in a P-51 Mustang Cockpit at 400mph or cruising down the open road at 40mph, the jacket’s timeless style knows no bounds. Finding a bomber jacket at a good price can be a bit tricky though — Style, quality and durability don’t come cheap. Luckily, Rev’It’s Pilot Jacket is on sale, today at 36 percent off.
Abrasion-resistant waxed buffalo leather, a detachable thermal liner, fleece collar and Knox Lite CE protection at shoulders and elbows translates to a motorcycle jacket that gives you high-fashion paired genuine protection. If you do find yourself on the open road, the fleece collar can be flipped up and locked too, because when you don’t have the benefit of a glass canopy and a metal fuselage, every bit of protection from the wind helps.

Miir 64oz Insulated Beer Growler
Save 50%: For beer aficionados, craft breweries are pilgrimage-worthy destinations. Not only can you see how the liquid is made (and potentially enjoy a pour with the head brewer), but it’s often the only place that you can find limited batches of recipes that never get distributed to bars or bottle shops. These beers are sold in one-off can runs or, more commonly, straight from the tap and served in a growler.
But, if you are one of the determined who had to drive hours to find that Holy Grail, glass isn’t the best way to get it back home. There are a variety of insulated versions of the big bottle available from brands that are best known for making thermoses and water bottles. Miir is included in that lot — it makes its growler with double-wall vacuum insulation and medical-grade stainless steel to keep beverages cold for more than 24 hours. With a vessel that steadfast you could, hypothetically, transport your favorite beer around the world. Right now, it’s on sale at Amazon for 50 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Patagonia Micro Puff Sale
Save 20% Last year we awarded the Patagonia Micro Puff jacket our editor’s choice award for best synthetic down jacket. We were impressed by the weight, water-repellent nylon and use of a unique baffling construction that prevents insulation from bunching. The PlumaFill insulation ensures warmth during some of the coldest days. Right now, you can pick up this jacket and save over $50. Get 20 percent off one item at Backcountry when you enter code TAKE20NOVEMBER. If the micro puff isn’t for you, there are a plethora of other apparel items you can test out and use the code to save.— Meg Lappe
Fellow Stagg EKG Coffee Kettles
Save 15% Originally only available in all-black, the kettles were designed with pour-over coffee brewing in mind. Hyper-accurate water temperature control, fast heating, a built-in timer (pivotal to those serious about their pour-over recipes) and a gooseneck spout that keeps water flow slow and consistent.
Today on Huckberry, that’s less of a problem, as both kettles (along with the rest of Fellow’s products on the site) are on sale for 15 percent off and up.
Woolrich John Rich and Bros. Parkas
Save 20%:In the last week, many parts of the northern United States got a first dusting of snow. Though it may have melted relatively quickly, it’s a heads-up for what’s coming. Take it as a notice to make sure your winter wardrobe is ready to go. And if you find yourself in need of a solid coat for winter’s worst, head over to East Dane today. A couple parkas from Woolrich John Rich and Bros. are currently 20 percent off. The understated design features a mid-length silhouette, a duck down fill and a fur-trimmed hood. Originally designed in the early ‘70s for Alaskan oil pipeline workers, this parka hasn’t changed that much in the past decades and is sure to keep you warm when the first blizzard hits. — John Zientek
