Fresh Deals


Uniqlo Cashmere Sweaters
Save 44% Cashmere was once a top-tier luxury material, mostly reserved for people who could stand to pay several hundred dollars for a sweater (or thousands of dollars for a suit).

But the cashmere market has been democratized in recent years by an increasing import volume and more sustainable (and affordable) production practices, allowing brands like Uniqlo to sell incredibly soft and well-made cashmere clothing for less. And while Uniqlo’s prices are always pretty accessible, this deal takes the brand’s amazingly soft sweaters from “reasonably priced” to “can’t pass this up.” Grab one of these and never look back. — Andy Frakes


Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman Watch
Save 40%: If you’re into throwback digital watches, don’t miss out on the Timex x Todd Snyder Ironman watch. This reissue was first developed in 1984 in partnership with the Ironman triathlon and features 200-meter water resistance, an Indiglo night light, a 100-hour chronograph, a 99-lap counter and a 24-hour countdown time. Though the contemporary model features an enlarged face and dial, it’s just as lightweight and durable as the original. Better yet, it’s nearly 40% off right now, and for a limited time you can get an additional 20 percent off of that with the code LASTCALL20. — Oren Hartov


TRX PRO Suspension Trainer System
Save $80 When arranged thoughtfully and outfitted appropriately, a home gym can be an entirely capable alternative to a pricey gym membership. It doesn’t have to call for heavy and bulky (not to mention expensive) equipment, either. TRX’s original suspension trainer was created with this type of functional minimalism in mind — it was invented by a Navy SEAL squadron commander named Randy Hetrick who was searching for a way to stay fit during deployment.

Like an as-seen-on-TV contraption, it can be adapted to various workouts and targeted exercises. Unlike that hulking machine, it can be bought in fewer than 12 installments, especially now that it’s 40 percent off — a savings of $80 — at Amazon. — Tanner Bowden



Allen Edmonds Sale
Save up to 60% Right now, a selection of Allen Edmonds’ well-made boots and shoes are on sale for up to 60 percent off at Nordstrom Rack. They’re the kinds of footwear you’ll buy now and wear for years: worthy investments at full price, but practically steals when they’re discounted like this.— Justin Fenner
