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.
Somehow it’s already October, which means stocking up on fall classics — warm sweaters, dry skin moisturizers, early holiday gifts — is no longer an aspirational activity, but a practical one. Luckily, we found all of those things in today’s sweep of the internet’s sales bins, along with a lip balm to eradicate that winter-induced “crusty-lip feeling” and a puffer coat you can wear for several seasons. (As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)
Lots of stuff is on sale at Nordstrom, including these classic boxer briefs that never fail to make it into our guide to the best underwear for men. According to one guy, that’s because they’re “not too tight and very low maintenance.”
Another American classic, Champion’s reverse-weave sweatpants are always worth adding to your wardrobe — especially when they’re 40 percent off.
Through October 4, everything at Bite Beauty is 30 percent off, including the lip moisturizer that brought our beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton’s “very dry, chapped lips back to life.” That discount is automatically applied at checkout, and shipping is free on orders over $35, so it might be in your best interest to grab two of these.
As part of Macy’s VIP sale, you can save an extra 30 percent on its top brands — including these Blackstock and Weber–esque faux-croc loafers.
J.Crew is kindly taking up to 40 percent off fall essentials, which is exactly how we’d describe this deep-teal button-up jacket with a corduroy collar. It also comes in autumnal brown and yellow shades.
For all-over corduroy, here’s a head-turning shirt that’s just begging to be layered.
The friends-and-family sale at Saks is on too, with up to 25 percent off new arrivals and rarely on-sale brands, including this leather Mansur Gavriel purse.
And finally, we can’t say when you’ll find La Mer on sale again. If you’ve been thinking about the best time to try it out — or restock your supply — this would be it.
