Fresh Deals


Upgrade Your Wallet and Slim It Down at the Same Time
Save 25%: Too frequently we find ourselves with XL wads of leather crammed with expired memberships and stashes of business cards we’ll never hand to anyone. — Tanner Bowden


J. Crew Summer Suiting
Save 30%: Do yourself and everyone in your office a favor and don’t let this be another summer of sweating at or on the way to work. If you live anywhere outside of the north, you’ve undoubtedly begun to feel the turn of the season, and with it the turn of your wardrobe. I won’t go as far to say that if by this point in your life you don’t have a blazer or suit that can be worn in the sun you’re doing something wrong, but you might be doing something wrong. If you’d like to fix that, J. Crew’s line of breathable, unstructured stretch blazers and pants can be had now on the cheap — 30 percent off the regular price (and unlike other J.Crew products, these don’t go on sale often, especially during peak season).

The Ludlow stretch cotton and cotton-linen line are made with airy Portuguese cotton, without padding or lining and sport two air vents for bonus air flow. The stretch cotton line mixes cotton with flexible lycra-spandex. Right now, a jacket and pants can be had together for under $200 (free shipping, too) with code GOSHOP at checkout. — Will Price


Master & Dynamic Headphone Cables
Save 50%: Master & Dynamic just launched several new cables, most notably lightning to 3.5mm ($69) and USB-C to 3.5mm ($49), that allow you to plug your headphones directly into your new smartphone — no dongle needed. Each cable has a built-in remote and microphone, and it looks nice, made of heavy-duty woven fabric. Yes, the cables are pretty expensive, but right now through April 29 (this Sunday) you can buy them for half off — just use the code “CABLE50” at checkout. If you have a new iPhone or Google Pixel smartphone, along with either M&D’s MH40 or MH30 headphones, these cables could be a nice upgrade. (Note: the cables will also work with other non-M&D headphones.) The cables are available in silver and black models. — Tucker Bowe

Junghans Max-Bill Hand-Wound
Save $160: The Junghans Max Bill is a delightful timepiece that refuses to change. The watch’s Bauhaus aesthetic has barely changed at all since its legendary Swiss designer Max Bill first penned the dial design in the 1950s. This model here is powered by a Swiss-made ETA 2801-2 hand-winding movement that’s packed up in a sleek, 34mm case. The Max Bill also happens to be very affordably priced for everything with an MSRP of $690, but you can get it even cheaper from Massdrop right now for just $530. — Andrew Connor
