The Friday Read: Shop These Cyber Monday Deals While They’re Around

OK, Style Guide readers —  Black Friday has come and gone, but plenty of deals (including Cyber Monday deals) abound! Can you believe it? And is there a better time to shop for your favorite men’s style essentials? It’s, of course, also a great weekend for plenty of other reasons, the least of which is a great weekend with family on tap (and a Florida visit for me!). I hope an excellent weekend is on the way for you, too — that’s what matters the most. In the meantime, it’s a ripe season for shopping #menswear deals aplenty, from now through Cyber Monday (and even a bit beyond that). So, I’ve rounded up deals from brands both known and lesser-known, all for your shopping and reading pleasure.  They’re in no particular order, but you can find a heck of a lot of great sales going on below — remember to put down your phone from time to time, though. Follow along with my Florida adventures on Instagram, and be on the lookout for a full blog post coming on Monday. Without further ado, let’s get shopping!

  • Taylor Stitch — Alright, y’all …. let’s do it. When it comes to stylish, rugged menswear, Taylor Stitch doesn’t mess around. They’re one of my favorite brands for the way they combine quality and timeless style with a bit of an edge; that’s perfect in my book. There’s virtually no way to go wrong when shopping around at Taylor Stitch for Cyber Monday. We’re talking 30 percent off at Taylor Stitch on Monday, with $30 credit to any second purchase through Jan. 9, 2018! Plus, you can get up to 30 percent off the brand’s Favorites of Fall, featuring some real heavy hitters, including a few colors of the Taylor Stitch Chore Pants. I’d steer you toward some tried-and-true classics like the Taylor Stitch Yosemite Shirt, the handsome (and brand-new) Jack Shirt in Navy Jacquard and … if you dare … the remarkable (and remarkably expensive) Long Haul Jacket in Sand Waterproof Suede. Oh, man. Happy shopping!
  • HuckberryEveryone’s favorite menswear site — at least as far as this writer is concerned — has a full suite of stylish men’s holiday gifts on sale, including plenty of affordably priced gifts under $50. If you’re still reading this, you shouldn’t be — the brand is even offering as much as 55 percent off the site’s top seller (including cozy picks like the Glerups Camp Shoes and luggage like the travel-ready Raden A22 Carry, perfect for winter travel). I’d say you should start shopping Huckberry today, ehh?
  • Bespoke Post: Just like my pals at Huckberry, Bespoke Post is simply a tremendous online retailer for guys who love quality and style in every facet of their lives. From apparel (like the Filson Vintage Flannel Work Shirt, a personal favorite) all the way through to treats for the coffee lover (I.E. The Fellow Stagg Pour-Over Kettle), there’s something for everyone — including yourself.  I’d seriously urge you to shop the Bespoke Post Holiday 100, where you can get free shipping on orders over $45 — yep, $45. Go to it, folks!
  • Kibble Pet: OK, here’s a fun one for all you animal lovers out there. And really, who doesn’t love our furry friends!? Customers can buy one, get one item 50 percent off using code BARKFRIDAY, or they can get free shipping on all travel kits (available only at kibblepet.com) with the code HOLIDAY17.
