You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
This week’s sales roundup features a bunch of sale-on-sale deals from some of our favorite retailers, including a crowd-favorite Madewell tote, a vintage-inspired cast-iron pan — and with Father’s Day less than two weeks away, lots of thoughtful gifts for Dad.
Macy’s is taking an extra 30 percent off already-on-sale items with code FRIEND, so you can snag this stackable 10-piece cookware set for the Dad–slash–home cook whose pots aren’t so nonstick anymore.
For the baker, here’s a handsome five-speed hand mixer for whipping egg whites or mixing cookie dough.
If he (or you) is more of the cast-iron type, we found this enameled one from Martha Stewart in a vintage-y turquoise.
Saks Fifth Avenue is offering up to 60 percent off select items, like this cube-shaped leather bag designed by black-owned leather and jewelry label Mateo.
In Nordstrom’s reliably good sales section, we found our favorite, top-rated briefs from Natori in a variety of still-in-stock colors and sizes.
Need Supply just added a bunch of new markdowns to its sale section, including these military-inspired shorts to replace Dad’s (now-vintage) jorts.
To complete the fit, pair those shorts with this supersoft tee from Levi’s in a summery marbled green.
For the dad whose dopp kit needs an upgrade, here’s a seven-piece set from Harry’s, which comes with everything he’ll ever need for a close shave.
You can pick up this on-sale Telfar T-shirt now and keep your eye out for your dream Bushwick Birkin later.
Shopbop just added a bunch of new styles to its sale section, including this minimalist swim top from black-owned swimwear company Jade.
Here are the matching bottoms.
A pair of satin lounge pants that double as going-out pants when the time comes to end social isolation.
These Stella + Ruby earrings are statement-y without being distracting.
The fan-favorite Madewell Transport tote has been sold out for a while, but we found this one, in a Carole Baskin–friendly leopard print, for just $50.
This industrial graphic tee by black-owned label A-Cold-Wall would make an excellent gift for the dad who likes to pore over maps and blueprints.
If you (or Dad) are looking to dip your toes into streetwear, we found this subtly branded hoodie from Carrots By Anwar Carrots for half off.
Madewell is taking an extra 30 percent off sale with code SWEETDEAL, including this summer-appropriate sweatshirt in a cherry coral pink.
These strappy slide sandals will pair well with any summer outfit (and are inexpensive enough that you won’t be too precious with them).
This midi skirt in a not-too-twee blue floral is a nice nod to prairiecore.
And finally, an over-half-off, vintage-looking, relaxed ringer tee to add to your summer rotation.
