I am certainly not one of those insane people who camp out for hours during Thanksgiving and Black Friday just for the chance to purchase gifts. If you are, I hope you got some great deals. That’s just not for me. I’d much rather sit inside, enjoy a nice warm fire, and spend some time with the family. I took this weekend to get our Christmas lights hung and catch up on some television I had been missing (finally finished Fear the Walking Dead!) But Cyber Monday is different. It has a terrible name, but the deals are just as good, if not better than Black Friday. Retailers know that shoppers are moving online in droves, and in order to follow the demand, they are pivoting to online sales more every year. Personally, I’ll choose the comfort of shopping at home over freezing my ass off outside a Target every day and twice on Sunday (or Monday as the case happens to be).
Today, I’ve scoured the entire Internet and brought together some of my favorite Cyber Monday (ugh, still hate the name) deals ranging from clothing to jewelry to leather goods to shaving gear. I’ve also noted a few a my personal favorite items just to help get you started.
40% off with the code CHEER1 (when you spend $125) from one of my absolute favorite brands is something I cannot pass up. Additionally, my second favorite polo shirt is just one of the literally hundreds of men’s items on sale today. If you need to restock on some iconic, American clothing, this is the time. Specifically, take a look at these three:
Suede Drivers (I’m partial to the “Loden” color)
Now on to the home of my favorite polo shirt. The trouble for me with Lacoste is that some of the clothes are cut a little too “European” for my size. I’m not a small guy at 6’0”, 220 lbs., so some of their clothes just aren’t going to sit on me correctly. However, some, like their slim fit polo shirts which I size up, are fantastic. Everything on sale is an additional 20% off today with the code CYBER20.
Over the past year I’ve become a big fan of MR Porter. Free two-day shipping and returns is fantastic. Their curated selection is beyond ideal. And the customer service is outstanding. This 30% off sale absolutely ends at midnight, so be sure to check it out!
Neiman's tends to be outside my usual price range, but with an extra 30% off all clearance items, today is the perfect time to pick up some luxury without overspending. As with all clearance sales, it takes a little extra work to sort through everything, but here are a few good places to start.
Today Nordstrom is offering an extra 20% off all sale items. This is sort of like a cross between MR Porter’s and Neiman Marcus’ sales. Free shipping and returns, great selections, but you have to sort through a bit. Luckily some of my favorite items were already on the list.
I’ve watched Auburn Jewelry grow over the past few years from an online retailer to a big trunk show draw working with some of the country’s largest department stores. Sam and her team are a brand on the rise, and one to definitely pay attention to. I love her cufflinks, and right now she is offering a free pair of stud earrings with any order over $75. This is the perfect way to pick up something nice for yourself and for someone else special too!
I bought a duffel bag from Blue Claw several years ago at the Devon Horse Show, and I don’t think I’ll have to buy another overnight bag again in my life. The quality is absolutely amazing. Today, Blue Claw is offering 25% off their entire site when you use the code MONDAY. I honestly can’t pick only three things to highlight. I want everything they make. Just go check out the line.
One of the two most famous fragrance houses in England, Penhaligon’s has been supplying the royal family for over a century. I think the two most famous men’s fragrances are Hammam Bouquet and Blenheim Bouquet. But there are quite a few other fragrances and grooming products that Pen’s has to offer. Be sure to use the promo code JOLLYGOOD to get 15% off all online orders.
Maggards is one of only three or four retailers where I buy my shaving products. Their selection is immense, including their samples. Their shipping is fast. And their service is spot on. The sale is a little complicated, but basically you get $5 off for every $40 you spend. Get $5 off orders between $40-$79.99 with the code 5CYBER40. $10 off orders between $80-$119.99 with the code 10CYBER80. $15 off orders between $120-$159.99 with the code 15CYBER120. $20 off orders over $160 with the code 20CYBER160. I would prefer a straight 10%-15% off, but can you really complain about getting money off? Here are a few of my favorite brands available:
I’ll do my best to continue to update this as the day goes on and I come across more offers. For now, happy shopping!
