Fall is a good time to reassess your sweater rotation — especially given the number of great cashmere options available. Mott & Bow’s Bergen cashmere sweater comes in plenty of options to fit any wardrobe.

Available in four colors and in crew neck or v-neck styles, the Bergen’s 12-gauge weight makes it perfect for cooler weather. Knitted from 100 percent cashmere from Inner Mongolia, the Bergen provides superior quality with a soft touch while still offering pill resistance. When looking to add a sweater (or two) to your wardrobe this season, the Bergen should be atop your list.

Fresh Deals


Barbour Quilted Jacket
Save 33 Percent Their quality, construction and highly considered details make Barbour products great value at full price, so when they go on sale it’s worth getting excited about. Right now, Nordstrom is offering 33 percent off Barbour’s Bowden quilted jacket, which is cut from a microfiber tech jacket that can move with you — and help you stay warm in some of late fall’s worst inclement weather.— Justin Fenner


Arai Quantum-X Box Helmet
Save 40%: The ‘X’ range of helmets by Arai is one of the brand’s most versatile line. If you’re on the market for an everyday helmet, there’s a good chance the Quantum-X fits the bill. On a regular day, you can expect the Arai Quantum-X Box Helmet to go for over $800, but today it’s on sale at 40 percent off at $500. — Bryan Campbell


Asics GT 2000 6 Sale
Save $40+ Asics is known for its stability prowess. The shoes got me through my first half marathon and half IRONMAN thanks to the support and durability each pair provided. With stability comes some heft, which is why the GT-2000 6 is exciting. The 10.5 ounces is half an ounce than its predecessor, thanks to a loss of some upper fabric and the plastic heel counter. Another bold change in the GT-2000 is the FlightFoam midsole, Asics’ proprietary foam that provides a firm push off which can be helpful on your daily runs. Since the GT 2000 7 arrived earlier this month, version six is now $47 off. Snag a pair today and give your winter runs an added kick. — Meg Lappe


Dyson A10 Humidifier
Save 30% or $150: It’s getting to the time of year where we’re inside most of the time, with the heat piping, and you basically need a humidifier or risk drying out. Enter the Dyson AM10 Humidifier ($499 $350). It pulls double duty as both a humidifier and fan, comes in three color options, and looks as futuristic as Dyson’s much-lauded heating and cooling systems. If we’re being honest, however, as cool as this Dyson humidifier is – it’s also overkill. Dyson overengineered the crap out of this thing, designing it to work ultrasonically, meaning its fan is powerful enough to blow out mist through its oval design without you even noticing. The A10 also cleans the air using Dyson’s Ultraviolet Cleanse technology; the company claims it kills 99.9-percent of bacteria before the hydrated air is blown into the room.


Red Wing Shoes and Boots
Save 63%:It’s a rare occurrence when you can find discounted footwear from Red Wing Heritage. But every so often, Nordstrom Rack offers a range of shoes and boots from the brand at highly-reduced prices. Often, the styles are European or Japanese market styles or factory seconds, and the savings are usually at least half off. Currently, you can save up to 63 percent on shoes and boots from Red Wing Heritage. For the widest range of sizes, check out the derby shoes and engineer boots — they’re all less than $200. — John Zientek
