New & Noteworthy Releases
Wolverine Rockford 1000 Mile Boots
Save 30%: A hardwearing pair of brown leather boots will never go out of style. Wolverine makes fine examples here in America, notably the Rockford 1000 Mile boot. It is cut from durable Horween Chromexcel leather and features an archival cap-toe design, Goodyear welt construction, a leather outsole and a stacked leather heel. Now at East Dane, they’re 30% off — not bad for a boot that will stand up to years of daily wear. — John Zientek
Sony WH1000XM2 Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $52: When they launched in September, the Sony WH-1000XM2 headphones replaced the popular MDR-1000X in Sony’s wireless noise-canceling lineup. They look almost identical but the WH-1000XM2s boast a slightly grippier texture and come with a few extra features, including Sony’s Quick Attention — it allows users to lower the volume of music by putting their hand over the right earcup. Though the WH-1000XM2 headphones normally retail for $350, they’re currently 15% off on Amazon for a $52 discount. — Tucker Bowe
Edwin High Road Jacket
Save 34%: Edwin was one of the first major producers of Japanese denim and a major industry innovator. It produced the heaviest ring-spun selvedge denim jeans, developed an “old wash” in the ’70s to replicated worn jeans and invented stone washing in the ’80s. The brand’s High Road jacket is a continuation of these efforts and is cut from 11.8-ounce denim with a lightly distressed finish. The Type III style features a button-front closure, two front button pockets and two welt hand pockets. It’s a classic style that will look good in anyone’s closet — and now it’s 34% off. — John Zientek
GORUCK Gym Bag and Kit Bag
Save 10%: GORUCK is predominantly known for making rugged, mil-spec backpacks, but it requires that its duffels meet all of the same hard-wearing standards. That’s why GORUCK designed both its Gym Bag and Kit Bag, which was inspired by the ones used by Special Forces pilots, with 1000D Cordura fabric and YKK zippers, and strength tests every one to 400 pounds of weight. Both bags also come with organizational pockets that make them suitable for the everyday user, too. All GORUCK products come with a lifetime guarantee and free repairs, so buying one of these bags — on sale now for 10 percent off — is a lifelong investment. — Tanner Bowden
Apple iMac Desktop (late 2013)
Save $500: Instead of spending big on a new iMac, consider buying a certified refurbished model. You can go to Apple’s Refurbished Store, where you will find a 21.5-inch model for as low as $929 (compared to the $1,099 of a new model). Or, for today only, you can buy a similar 21.5-inch iMac for just $700 on Amazon. It should be noted that this particular model is a few years old, originally released in late 2013, yet it still has a beautiful Retina 4K display and Intel Core i5 processor. It also comes with 8GB of RAM (onboard, so it can’t be upgradable to 16GB) and 1TB of memory. It’s a pretty rare deal, plus it’s also Amazon’s Deal of the Day — so expect it to go fast. — Tucker Bowe
