Today’s Best Deals: Ace and Everett’s Stand-Out Socks, Common Projects Sneakers & More
Welcome to Deals of Note, where Gear Patrol captures all the best deals of the day. You can also follow all our deal posts in the Deals section. Comments or concerns? We’d love to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You need socks that can stand up to the rigors of everyday life with style. Luckily, the American-made socks from Ace & Everett cover those bases with aplomb. Founded by two brothers, the brand is named after and inspired by the pair’s grandfather, Raymond “Ace” Everett Disch, whose own sense of style always started with a great pair of socks. Ace & Everett’s goal is to inject a bit of fun and personality into the usually-bland area of men’s hosiery.
But the socks can’t just look good, they need to be well-made too — otherwise, no one would ever be back for a second pair. To get that athletic-sock comfort and durability with dress-sock style, Ace & Everett partnered with a fifth generation family-run mill in North Carolina. They then made use of US-grown organic Supima cotton for a product that’s soft to the touch yet distinctly high quality. The stay-up technology of ribbed calf bands and no-slip heels mean they won’t come down on you, while the padded sole and jacquard knit deliver pillowy comfort all day long. As if this wasn’t appealing enough, you can head over to Ace & Everett’s site and receive a discount of 20% off your order with the code Gear20.
Citizen Promaster Nighthawk
Save 25%: The Citizen Promaster Nighthawk is a quartz-powered pilot’s watch that’s positively crammed with useful features. Featuring a 42mm steel case, lumed indices, a rotating slide-rule bezel and a second timezone display at the center of the dial, it’s even rated water-resistant to 200 meters and comes with a matching steel bracelet. Right now, you can nab the Nighthawk for just $142, a 25% savings off the list price of $190. — Oren Hartov
Common Projects Sneakers
Save 50%:Since its inception in 2004, New York-based footwear brand Common Projects has become something of a cult favorite. The brand makes luxe versions of classic sneaker silhouettes, using premium materials and Italian craftsmanship. While the brand isn’t as hard to come by as it once was, it’s rare to find substantial markdowns on any of its styles.
But, today is one of those rare occasions. If you head over to Need Supply Co., you can save 50 percent on a few different pairs of shoes and boots from Common Projects. The understated styles are available in a range of sizes and prices start at $212 — that’s almost unheard of for this brand. — John Zientek
Oakley Sunglasses Sale
Save 20%:If you don’t yet have the perfect pair of summer shades, today is a great day to change that. Head to Clever Training to shop a plethora of Oakley sunglasses, all 20 or more percent off.
You’ll have to shop around to find some of the styles that will work double duty for your run and your commute, but there are over 60 available. We’ve pulled together a few of our favorites below — all of which are work on the field, a boat and on a run.

Save 44%: Sandals are made for summer, and thanks to recent reductions in the stigmatization of strappy, open-toe footwear, this particular summer seems to be the ideal season to dust off the pair at the back of your closet. Sandals aren’t just for camping and whitewater rafting anymore either — fashionistas might hate to admit it, but sandals are a common sight everywhere from Colorado to downtown Manhattan (wearing them with socks — gasp! — is also becoming a thing).
Maybe you missed this bandwagon the last time it came around, or your old pair is in need of a refresh. In either case, now is an excellent time because REI is selling Chaco sandals in a range of different styles for 25 percent off. Through June 10, you’ll receive in additional 25 percent off that price (the double discount brings it down to roughly 44 percent off in total). — Tanner Bowden
Oxo Coffee Grinder
Save 35%: Complete with stainless steel conical burrs and plenty of grind size customization settings, it’s an ideal, low-cost entry point into making better coffee at home. This is the lowest price we’ve seen it at. — Will Price
Belstaff Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket
Save up to 20%: It’s not easy to earn a reputation for rugged reliability in the world of motorcycle gear, but Belstaff has been at it for nearly 100 years. Covering the backs of some of the first motorcycle racers at the famed Brooklands track, the first runnings of the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy and even cloaking Che Guevara as he documented his memoir The Motorcycle Diaries, Belstaff has proven itself worthy in the roughest real-world conditions. Along with its respectable rise to prominence, Belstaff has also entrenched itself in the luxury performance apparel space in recent years, so price tags across the brand tend to be high. Today, however, the Classic Tourist Trophy Jacket, one of Belstaff’s most iconic designs is 20% off and just $1,260. — Bryan Campbell
Oral-B Electric Toothbrush
Save 45%: Most people don’t need every feature and function the Oral-B Genius Pro 8000 toothbrush provides. Thankfully, you do not need to use all of them for it to be a worthy buy.
Its six different cleaning modes are a few too many, and the smartphone pairing camera tracking is perhaps a step too far into smart-everything, but its real-time pressure aide and a plethora of affordable, replaceable brush heads are a major plus. It’s also got the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance.
At nearly 50 percent off, its price has never been lower. — Will Price
Amazon Kindle E-Readers
Save Up to $100: For Father’s Day, Amazon is discounting all of its newest Kindles. The Kindle Oasis, the company’ largest and brightest e-reader, is $50 off. The Kindle Paperwhite, which is smaller and not as bright as the Oasis, is $30 off. (Both the Oasis and the Paperwhite are waterproof, meaning they’re ideal for taking to the beach or pool.) Finally, Amazon’s newest and most entry-level e-reader, the Kindle, is $20 off. If you’re in the market for an e-reader or shopping for somebody that you know is, right now is an excellent time to buy one.
Jabra Elite 65e Noise-Canceling InEar Headphones
Save 75%: The Jabra Elite 65e headset is arguably the best value proposition for anybody who wants in-ear headphones with active noise cancellation. Their nearest rival is the Bose QuietComfort 30, which costs $299, and that’s $99 more than the Jabra Elite 65e.
