It’s On Sale: L.B.M. 1911 at Haberdash — Depending on what you buy, you can get around 20-25% off blazers and suits from L.B.M. 1911 at Haberdash right now. 

L.B.M. 1911 jackets tend to run a bit short, however, I own two of them and like their fit on me. I actually own a very similar one to the blue cotton double-breasted jacket above. I’ve worn it in the day with white linen-cotton trousers and suede tassels and at night with light-grey tropical wool trousers and black horsebit loafers during the spring months.

It’s on sale: L.B.M. 1911 moleskin blazers — At Haberdash for $299 through Monday. Sadly, there are no navy blazers in 38R, otherwise I’d be damned tempted.

It’s on sale: Haberdash — If you haven’t checked out Haberdash’s winter sale yet, it’s worth a look. They’ve got sport coats and suits from LBM 1911 on sale and as well as outerwear from Gloverall and Mackintosh. 

The two pieces that really caught my eye a while back though when I visited their store are the New England Shirt Co. denim workshirt and Hertling English drill trousers. I thought the quality of both were rather impressive and they’d work well together for a more rugged, casual look — especially with a pair of workboots. Each are on sale right now for $129.

It’s on sale: Exquisite Trimmings — If you haven’t done so yet, then check out the sale section at Exquisite Trimmings. Neckties from Drake’s, squares from Rubinacci and a whole lot of fancy cufflinks. And don’t forget, if you live outside the United Kingdom, VAT is subtracted (around 20%).

Rugby tuxedo fun shirts —  For those of you who attend events where the dress code is “creative black tie”, this might be a not completely terrible way to do it. Available (and on sale) in multi-colored stripes and blackwatch

(If you want something more tame, they have a normal, pleated-front shirt, too.)

It’s on sale: Brooks Brothers OCBD — Get ‘em solid, get ‘em striped. My favorite off-the-rack staple dress shirt is on sale (today only!) and I’ll never-not mention it.

It’s 30% off right now ($56 versus the usual $80). Made in the U.S.A., 100% cotton, single-needle stitched seams and I literally wear one every day (unless it’s the summer). 

If you’re wondering about Brooks Brothers extra-slim fit OCBD sizing, I’ve got you covered. And if you haven’t read it, I put the shirt in my investment pieces series, too.

It’s on sale: Sette Neckwear — If you’ve got a politico in the family (or on your holiday gift list) and know they’d appreciate a fine piece of neckwear, then you’ll want to consider picking up one of the Sette Neckwear ties on sale — with designs for donkeys and elephants in multiple colorways. The ties are still pricey ($200, marked down from $265), but they’re a real 7-fold necktie, handmade in Italy from some really amazing silks. You can read my Sette Neckwear review here.

It’s on sale: Lands’ End and Lands’ End Canvas — The Friends and Family sale for both sites has been extended thru Tuesday, offering 30% off with code FRIENDS and PIN 3010

Going through some of their newer releases, I noticed this denim shirt jacket from Lands’ End the mariner jacket, which are on sale for $69 and $56 respectively. I’m not huge into workwear, however, I do like the look of these jackets. 

The mainline jacket, unfortunately, doesn’t come in a size smaller than medium — and given their sizing that may put some of you out of luck on that version. Still, the LEC version looks pretty cool and it’s cheaper, too.

It’s on sale: Rugby Ralph Lauren — You might’ve heard that Rugby is being discontinued, which is disappointing as I think they had some interesting pieces at moderate prices during their sales. Rugby’s knocking off another 20% on top of their sale items with code INSIDERSALE thru Monday. 

That brings their Newbury herringbone jackets in black and brown down to $192. And their Shetland wool shawl cardigan and shaggy crewneck sweaters to $80 and $56 respectively.

It’s on sale: L.L.Bean — About a month ago I bought these two sweaters from L.L.Bean during their last sale, which is also going on right now: 10% off and free shipping with code NOV10.

I’m really pleased with both the Norwegian and the Irish fisherman sweaters. Both are made in their namesake countries and come to $125 on sale. The Norwegian sweater fits a bit more true-to-size than the Irish counterpart. I’m a size 38 chest and went with size small on both. The Norwegian has a good fit, although I wouldn’t call it a skinny fit. The Irish sweater is definitely baggier, however, I don’t mind it enough to return it (and there’s no size extra small anyway). 

I’ve been wearing them during the week while at home, over an OCBD and with jeans. Both of them look great under a Barbour waxed jacket and do a good job of retaining warmth. Some of my most-worn wardrobe items for the season. 

The sale applies to both L.L.Bean mainline and their Signature line, too, ending on Monday.

It’s on sale: Ralph Lauren — Reader freemaneric pointed out to me that the Polo Ralph Lauren merino v-neck sweaters I linked to earlier can be had much cheaper at Ralph Lauren’s sale right now, down to $54.88 each with code FALLSALE12.

There’s also a chino, triple-patch pocket, linen-cotton sportcoat in khaki and navy on sale for $143.99 in a bunch of sizes left. Could be a great buy for those of you who need a cheap casual jacket. 

Sale ends Monday.
