J.Crew Sale
Save an Additional 30%: Right now at J.Crew you can save an additional 30 percent on already reduced sale items. It’s a great opportunity to invest in some wardrobe classics that will get steady wear, regardless of season. Choose between shorts, button-up shirts, jeans and blazers, among other items, but don’t wait long because sizes are limited for certain garments. To take advantage of the extra savings, use the code SHOPNOW at checkout. — John Zientek

Grey Minimalist Sneakers
Save an Additional 25%: There’s a reason minimalist sneakers have all but taken over the footwear space. The simple unadorned style is incredibly versatile and pairs well with almost everything in your closet — they look as good with a pair of worn-in jeans as they do with chinos and a blazer. While the de facto colorway is white, you can get just as much mileage out of a pair in another neutral color. And now at East Dane, you can choose from three gray styles that cost no more than $53. Just make sure to use the code EXTRA18 at checkout to take advantage of the savings. — John Zientek


Calvin Klein Office Attire
Save Up to 50%: Amazon is warming up for its biggest deal day of the year, Prime Day, with a host of smaller deals. This one is all Calvin Klein officewear, and there’s an enormous color and size collection to boot — simple straight-fit khakis for all of $18, Gingham shirts you don’t have to iron for under $30 and much, much more.

Prices vary slightly based on size and color selection, and as of posting nearly all color and size options were available. Also, PSA: Prime Day begins on Monday, July 16th at 3 p.m. EST. Prepare yourself. — Will Price

Two Urban Outfitters Media Consoles
Save Up to 50%: Sometimes when outfitting our living rooms with audio equipment we overspend. And by sometimes, I mean every time. When that happens, slight concessions are made, and they’re better made on the thing that holds the audio gear rather than the audio gear itself.

These two media consoles from Urban Outfitters Apartment Sale — the Draper and the Hamilton — are perfect for this. Both are derivatives of classic mid-century products and with an added air of UO playfulness, and both are much, much more affordable than any high-design setup you’ll find. Both already affordable and both on sale right now. — Will Price

Todd Snyder Camp Collar Indigo Linen Shirt
Save 37%: Todd Snyder is offering savings of 37 percent on one of the best shirts you can wear this summer.

Made in Portugal from dark-blue Italian linen, it’s lightweight, breathable and quick drying making it ideal for hot and humid climates. Normally $158, this shirt is now just $99 and available in sizes XS to XXL. — John Zientek
