This Brand Offers Quality Denim for a Fraction of the Price
Premium jeans often have prohibitively expensive price tags. Thankfully, direct-to-consumer brand Mott & Bow offers quality jeans for a fraction of the price of competitors. It sources denim from mills in Turkey and Italy and offers three fits: skinny, slim and straight. The lightweight denim comes in a variety of colorways and includes a small percentage of elastane for comfort. If you’re unsure of your size, take advantage of the home try-on program which allows you to pick a second size. Try both pairs on at home and use a prepaid label to send the unwanted size back — it makes shopping a new brand incredibly easy. With prices starting at $96, Mott & Bow should be at the top of your list if you’re in the market for a new pair of jeans.

Klipsch R-15M Bookshelf Speakers
Save $90: Even now, when the popularity of multiroom, Bluetooth and smart speakers has skyrocketed, there’s still a ton of interest in true stereo sound. It’s more complicated to experience, of course, having to build out your system, but it’s way more immersive and the track sounds truer to the artist’s original recordings. If you’re looking to take the step into stereo audio, you need a good pair of bookshelf or floor-standing speakers. The Klipsch R-15Ms are a great entry-level option. The passive bookshelf speakers combine stellar design and sound, and now they’re on sale on Amazon. Normally $250, you can get them for $160 — that’s $90 off. — Tucker Bowe

Summer Motorcycle Glove Sale
Save up to 50%: When the hot weather rolls in it’s easy to be tempted into scaling back on the amount of gear you wear in order to stay cool. One important piece of gear people tend to shed first is their gloves — huge mistake. In the event of a crash or a slide, the gut reaction is to put out your hands to protect yourself and to prop your self up, even when you’re still sliding across the asphalt. Now consider doing that with your bare hands. There are motorcycle gloves out there made specifically for warm weather riding and today there’s a whole selection on sale at Revzilla.com. So, now you have no excuse to ride bare-handed this summer. — Bryan Campbell
