September 18, 2018 Briefings By

We’ve made some new adjustments to Today in Gear, including a new publishing time of 4 p.m. in order to capture all the day’s new stories. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at tig@gearpatrol.com.


TOMS Camo Canvas TRVL LITE Low Sneaker
With Labor Day in the rearview mirror, it’s time for your fall wardrobe. There are subtle ways to start implementing fall vibes into your rotation, especially when it comes to wearing more earthy tones.

The Camo Canvas TRVL LITE Low Sneaker from the purpose-driven TOMS is perfect to add a bit of that fall color pop while still getting the benefits of an ultra-lightweight, comfortable sneaker. Built for life on the move, it has a flexible outsole made from a custom TRVL LITE compound and a molded cork-covered footbed that provides superior cushioning. Leather accents and a wave-patterned tread round out the TRVL LITE to make one heck of a fall colorway sneaker.

Fresh Deals


Furniture from Target
Save 25% and Up: Like many categories, Target’s wares in the furniture and home space should not be written off quickly. The mega-retailer peddles an enormous number of good-looking, dead simple, budget items, and today a great many of those items are significantly more affordable.

Because Target believes we should celebrate coming of fall early, we will — take 15 percent off any furniture (even if it’s already discounted) with code FALL15 at checkout. Hot tip: check out the section of its site dedicated to furniture already on sale and stack the coupon with an already existing sale. — Will Price


Saturdays NYC Clothing and Shoes
Save 40%: Need to bolster your cool-weather wardrobe before the mercury drops? Head over to Saturdays NYC and save 40 percent on a range of fall essentials. Garments utilize quality fabrics designed to age well with time, developing unique patinas and fades with wear. Pick from chinos, sweaters, shirts, shoes and more, but don’t wait — with prices like these, sizes are bound to sell out quickly. — John Zientek


Zojirushi Commuter Mug
Save 62%: Zojirushi’s travel mug is excellent. The obvious and more ubiquitous strengths are its vacuum insulation and multi-walled body, but it’s the smaller details of this work commute essential that set it apart. The lid, for one, won’t spill or drip its liquid cargo even if dropped, knocked over or placed upside down. It’s also slim enough to fit in the cup holder of your car which, strangely enough, isn’t the norm.

Every size of Zojirushi’s subtly great mugs are all a part of Amazon’s Deal of the Day, and discounted more than 60 percent. — Will Price
