These Sales Start 2017 Off Right

January 1st is the day we all try to become the people we want to be: the person who takes better care of their body, who’s more organized, who budgets better, who tries something new, and who reads more (I pulled these from the top ten most common New Year’s resolutions, according to Nielsen).

Personally, my favorite part of becoming a better person — no matter which one of these routes I’m taking — is gearing up for it. You can’t become the better person you envision if you don’t have the items Dream You is wearing in said dreams! That’s just science.

Luckily, there is a whole mess of retailers having bonanza sales right now to help you be reborn at a fraction of the usual cost. So jot down your New Year’s resolutions, add in big letters *get a fit off* right underneath them, and start shopping the best sales of the weekend to knock off two birds with one stone.  —Cam Wolf, menswear editor

If You Want to Be Healthier

Wow, good for you, you’ve decided to start working out and stop eating junk in 2017. That’s perfect. It means there will be more junk for me. Get healthy with a balanced diet and working out— but first, clothes to exercise in, because when you look good, you feel good.

Nike is offering an additional 25% off items already on sale. Just use the code LEGEND25, which should come with some sort of disclaimer that legendary status is not guaranteed. There’s plenty to get you on the right track (do you get it?), though, like the Nike Tech Fleece Windrunner (will be $101.25), the HyperShield Running Jacket (will be $180), a Dry Miler Running T-shirt (will be $22.50), and a whole lot more to comb through.

Under Armour is also having a large end-of-season-sale, with Infrared Fleece Quarter Zips ($41.99), Fleece Logo Hoodies ($32.99), and Select Basketball Shorts ($22.49 to $29.99) all at a discount.

 

If You Want to Budget Better

Here, I will attempt to convince you to buy things so that you can stop spending money. First, good sales make that easier — and there are a bunch right now. Second, if you really want to stop spending money on clothes, hop on the bandwagon, because we’re going minimalist.

Buy several high-quality basic pieces — sweaters, T-shirts, and jeans — in dark colors, like black or navy. 3x1 is having a great sale, and you can get very good M3 Slim Straight Radar Black Jeans for only $73 — don’t forget to use the code HOLIDAY25. The Levi’s sale, where 505 Regular Fit Stretch Jeans are only $30, is also an acceptable move.

Next, hop over to J.Crew and get a Lambswool Sweater for only $35 after taking an additional 50% off the retail price with the code THEBEST. (I got one for my brother a couple Christmases ago and he still wears it consistently to this day. It’s nice.) Lastly, latch onto Mr Porter’s incredible blowout like it’s the last and only good thing to happen in 2016. There, you can find a black Cotton-Mesh T-shirt by Reigning Champ for only $37.50. I promise it will treat you well in 2017 and beyond.

If You Want to Try New Things

Hopefully by new things, you meant weird brands and items of clothing. If so, try something from SSENSE’s sale, where items are discounted up to 70% off. Is this Helmut Lang White Long Mandarin Shirt ($193) enough outside your comfort zone? No? How about this Yeezy Season 3 Yellow Shearling Flight Coat ($840), which has been a bit of an editorial star this season? Or maybe this KTZ Black Jersey Patches Coat ($407) will do the trick.

There are over 111 pages of this sale! If there’s nothing weird enough for you in any of those pages… please contact me directly because you are clearly a special and unique being. But also, don’t fret because Très Bien’s winter sale is also going on. There, you can find this Undercover T-shirt printed with an angelic angel flipping the bird ($147) and a Comme des Garçons Ganryu Stripe Mohair Sweater ($444.94).

At least this is an easy one to check off your list. Step one: Buy a thing. Step two: Wait patiently for the thing ship to your house. Step three: Put the thing on and wear it outside. You can cross a New Year’s resolution off just three-to-five business days into 2017!

The Person Who Is More Organized

We all know a notebook is as equally important to organization as it is to the #aesthetic. Shop Moleskine’s year-end sale now and you’ll find the brand’s Classic Notebook ($11.86), Professional Notebook ($19.51), and Hard Cover Color Notebook – RULED (because we are not savages) ($11.86) at discounted prices.

A bag to put your notebook in would also be helpful. Need Supply has nice ones, and you can take 25% off of them with the code COLD25. You’ll be organized as heck if you get a Filson Original Briefcase ($243.75), an A.P.C. Stefan Backpack ($176.25) or a Herschel Supply Winlaw Cordura in Caramel ($56.25).

The Person Who Reads More

Reading is a great way to become a better, more educated person. Reading about fashion and menswear is a great way to become a better, more educated person who dresses well. Is that a life hack? Fashion: A History From the 18th to the 20th Century ($9.99) is on sale at Barnes & Noble. And Powell’s is offering customers a buy two, get one free deal — I know, not that exciting, but a free book’s a free book. May I suggest some combination of Take Ivy ($18.95), Dressing the Man ($49.99), Ametora: How Japan Saved American Style (which is already on sale for $12.98), Men & Style ($30), and Fuck Yeah Menswear ($13.95)?

What to Wear When You Have No Place to Go

We were given the news in precisely one sentence: Our company had made the tough decision to shut down the New York editorial office. This was our last day — or, as it turned out, last hour. I was writing a quiz titled “Which Classic Meg Ryan Movie Are You?” and then, suddenly, I wasn’t. Once the severance was explained and apologies given, I called my mom, I cried with my editor while wedged in a phone booth, and then I ran to the top of the Empire State Building just like Sleepless In Seattle taught me to.

Turns out, you can’t do that. A Friday in July is the perfect time for sightseeing, and my come to Jesus moment was diminished by the hour wait and, in particular, the photographer relentlessly trying to take a souvenir photo of me while there was mascara smudged down my cheek. I got to the top, took my Instagram, and decided to find Jesus the next best way: shopping.

Therapy shopping is something I’ve gotten pretty good at because, unbeknownst to my summer self, this was not the last time I’d lose my job in 2016. In fact, it was going to happen two more times. By New Year’s Eve, I had lost three jobs in a row. I also have a ton of new clothes and absolutely nowhere to wear them.

Just One Thing
The Name of the Nail Polish I Love Is Viscerally Humiliating
Insert alt text here

OPI Yank My Doodle Nail Polish, $10

For much of the summer of 2016, I was on a hunt. I searched across Brooklyn, nail salon by nail salon (or at least the 15 or so in my neighborhood). I was dogged and I was determined, but I kept coming up short. I was looking for the perfect dusty rose.

It was confounding because the shade was everywhere else: in Thinx ads, in think pieces, on the cover of Stephanie Danler’s Sweetbitter, on a crop top I bought from H&M even though I don’t wear crop tops or really shop at H&M (such was my desire to own this hue in any form). But not, somehow, in the dozens to hundreds of tiny bottles of easy application color that make their home on Smith Street.

I ended up with ballet pink nails and peach nails and Barbie magenta nails and off-maroon nails and even pretty okay non-dusty rose nails, but never, never the shade I sought.

Then, in late October, I finally found it. It was OPI, and it was just the color. Pink, with a sort of brick undertone, which makes it smarter and deeper than other pinks because it knows about hardness in the world. Pink, like the sunset in a place that I’ll only ever see on Instagram and never be able to pronounce, where French expats break each others’s hearts and it’s beautiful.

Pink, like the poster for an indie film where Mélanie Laurent is a free spirit with an impossibly-decorated apartment and a topknot who shows Jason Segal that sometimes love is sad or complicated or something and after you see it you think “Man, I want that apartment.”

Pink, like the effortless, unwrinkled linen dress of a woman who makes you think the word “Sedona” but you don’t know why; a woman whom you would never ask “What’s that dress, pink?” You’d just say “I love that color,” and she would smile knowingly and not even thank you, because her presence is a thank you. This was that pink.

But I barely trusted my own, so-frequently-deceived eyes, so I asked my friend. “Is this it?”

“Is this what?” I’d been having this summer-long conversation with myself.

“You know, is this that pink from everywhere? That pink that looks, like, somehow both cooler and sadder than other pinks. Like a pink that will someday retire to the mountains and take photographs of horses that are cooler and sadder than other horses. Like, basic but cooler. And sadder.”

“Sure, that’s a cool, sad pink.”

I had it. It was going on my hands and it was going on my feet and as soon as I had the name it was going in my phone and then in my shopping cart and then to my house for me to own; I flipped the bottle over. The label read “Yank My Doodle.”

Hi, I’m sorry, are you kidding me?

Apparently, in August 2016, Scandal’s Kerry Washington teamed with OPI on a Washington-the-city-themed line of nail polish. Washington-the-person thought the idea was “really fun,” and together they released colors like “Never A Dulles Moment” yellow and “Kerry Blossom” purple and “Popular Vote” magenta. And, of course, “Yank My Doodle” dusty rose, easily the least acceptable and most “Uncle Sam getting a hand job” brain picture-inducing name of the bunch. Olivia Pope, how could you?

I hate this name as much as I love this color. It’s the kind of non-joke word horror that the middle-aged guy at your company whose office is full of Dad Rock screams after getting drunk on a July summer Friday. It’s instant sexual harassment of and by everyone who hears or reads it, so for that I’m sorry, but also so are you, probably. It’s almost certainly what President-elect Donald Trump will yell immediately after getting sworn in.

But the color is amazing, and since it was a limited-edition line that I didn’t even find out about for two whole months, supplies are dwindling, and dupes are needed. I finally bought my own bottle just this week on Macy’s website, but hopefully someone, somewhere will release the same shade with the name it deserves. I suggest “Sedona.” —Meredith Haggerty, senior editor
