The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait until the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.


REI: Anniversary Sale is underway

REI tripod 52223

Not just for REI co-op members (although they have specific deals for members, which is a one-time $30 fee to join.) Not just for the “crunchy” rugged types… although it obviously, heavily leans that way. But… socks. Merino blend socks. Even if you’re the dressed up type, do not cast-aside the power of merino-blend “outdoorsy” socks for smart casual and casual wear. Especially as we move into the season of swamp-foot/hot and sweaty feet. They’ll change your life. If you ARE a member, you can use the code ANNIV23 to save an extra 20% off select Anniversary Sale items. Sale ends 5/29.


Gustin: Deluxe Briefcases in CXL #8 are in stock – $349


Hang on, what? Gustin is a pre-order model but they’ve got one of their most popular items in stock? Not bad. Sure it’s an investment, but any leather briefcase is far from cheap these days. And to get one made in the USA using Horweens famous burgundy #8 shade of Chromexcel Leather… for three fifty… pretty good. Not super structured, but not a schlumpy hyper-casual bag either. Right in-between. Solid brass hardware. Dimensions are 17″ x 12.5″ x 5″.


J. Crew: Up to 50% off select Men’s “ready-for-summer” Styles

J Crew Tripod 52223

So while most of us are cooling our jets with J. Crew until they launch their “unofficial start of summer” promo (whatever that may be as it appears in the next couple of days…) there’s a decent chance that some of the above picks might be a better deal now. Because while most of this small “ready-for-summer” sale styles have thoroughly “mneh” discounts… 49% – 53% off = Pretty good.


Also worth a mention…
