The Best Deals of the Day


L.L.Bean President’s Day Weekend Sale
Save at least 25% LL.Bean is a mainstay in American menswear and has been for decades. To commemorate the long weekend ahead, the company is offering a pretty fantastic deal: 25% off any order, no exceptions, through Tuesday, February 20. That’s everything from Bean Boots to infamous bedding to shirt jackets to slippers. Below are just a minuscule sampling of what’s on offer, so make sure to poke around to take advantage. (Note: LL.Bean has ended their unconditional return policy). – Nick Caruso


Levi’s Denim Trucker Jacket
Save 60%+: While there are plenty of pricier, more “in” alternatives, there’s nothing quite like Levi’s classic denim trucker jacket. The design of the denim trucker is familiar because it is the standard – spread collar, two fold-over chest pockets, single barrel roll cuffs and button pull tabs on the hem. There’s a reason it’s ubiquitous, and that’s because it’s badass.
This 100% cotton piece of American history usually retails for $90, but you can get it for $30 during the Nordstrom Rack “Clear the Rack” sale.
— Will Price
