September 28, 2018 Briefings By

RevTown Jeans
Outside-the-box thinking is what leads to innovative changes within products of all types. Even denim, an age-old classic that you can’t wrong with, can always be done better. Which is why masters of craft at Italian fabric mills and denim wash houses came together with leading designers in athletic apparel to create Revtown.

Its comfort-forward signature Decade Denim is made from a premium Italian yarn that’s then infused with four-way, dynamic stretch and made with the strongest fibers in apparel design today. Placed in the Sharp Denim fit, the result is a pair of perfectly worn-in jeans that balance mobility and style. Slim, but not too skinny, they can go with anything to make an ideal everyday jean.

Fresh Deals


Italian-Made Wayfarers
Save 60%: This specific model features nylon frames rather than acetate, lending to a more lightweight and flexible feel when worn, plus a slightly more rounded profile than the original Wayfarer design. These qualities lend to a modern look that’s right at home with any style under the sun — and if you’re under the sun, you’ll want these on your face. — Andy Frakes


Vuori Sale
Save 15% The Sunday transit joggers are my ideal sweatpant. In true Vuori form, these sweats are so much more than a sleek pant to pull on when you finally trash your old college sweats. Founder Joe Kudla named the company after the Finnish word for mountain, and you’d be hardpressed to find a piece that won’t perform as well as look great on the side of any high peak. These joggers are simultaneously stylish for running errands, high-performing enough for workouts, yet still cozy for Monday night football. Pick up a pair today and you can save 15 percent. Pick up the corresponding zip hoodie or pullover, and stock up on workout shorts and shirts on Huckberry. — Meg Lappe



The Perfect Gray T-Shirt Is on Sale
Save 46% Like underwear, jeans and khakis, t-shirts are one of those items that are so so widely available that it can be a little overwhelming to choose just one. Luckily, a great option from Alternative Apparel that normally retails for $24 is just $13 right now.— Justin Fenner


Patagonia Rain Jacket Sale
Save $70 When it rains, you have two defenses: a jacket and an umbrella. No matter where you fall on the spectrum of hating or loving umbrellas, we can all agree that a hard-working rain jacketis imperative during this time of year. It’s pretty much the only way to stay relatively dry while you’re commuting, heading out to meet friends or even hiking. The Patagonia stretch rainshadow jacket does all that, and more. Right now this jacket is $71 off its original price in two rich blue colors. — Meg Lappe
