The BEst Sales to Shop Online This Weekend

Something in the wind has shifted in the past few weeks. Judging from our gushy, confessional “I bought this!” conversations, my coworkers and friends (and myself) have finally given into the excitement for next season’s options, and we’re shopping again — with a gusto. It might be snowing in New York today, but goddamn it, I want open-toed shoes and a spring jacket.

If you’re looking for a refresh without dropping too much cash, this weekend also happens to be a great one for sales. We’re highlighting the best discounts below, with call-outs to some particularly great buys. Cory Baldwin, shopping editor

The Outnet: You know it’s going to be good when a clearance site has a clearance sale, and the annual event from Yoox Net-a-Porter Group’s discount site doesn’t disappoint. Expect discounts up to 85% off on brands like Stella McCartney, Saint Laurent, Marni, and more. If you visit one sale, make it this one. (The sale started on Wednesday, but new items were just added this morning, so the options are still fresh!)

Rag & Bone: The NYC label is running a "select sale" at the moment, with items up to 75% off. That means you can snag the brand's ultra-comfortable shoes for as little as $100, jeans around the same price, jackets as little as $200, and some clothing items for far, far less. There's a ton of stuff here; you should check it out (guys, too!).

Valentine: NYC-based lingerie company Valentine is offering 30% off its lacy bralettes and panties with the code FOMO30. There’s a lot of cute stuff, but I’ve definitely got my eye on the Shangri-la bra in white ($36.40, marked down from $52).

Urban Outfitters: Alright, I know you know UO is always having a sale, but the offerings up at the moment are particularly great. I just bought this bralette for $9.99, and I’m pretty in love with it. There are a ton of cute shoes from brands like Vagabond, Vans, and Sol Sana, as wells as plenty of dresses and jumpsuits you’ll want to wear through summer, like these white overalls from Rolla’s ($69.99, marked down from $129).

La Garçonne: If you need to pick up some basics, La Garçonne’s sale section is stacked right now. Some things are still pretty pricey (especially if you’re shopping brands like The Row and Maison Margiela, which are here at up to 70% off), but there’s a lot under $100 too, like this simple T-shirt dress ($59).

Frances Valentine: This online sample sale is not to be missed if you’re in the market for shoes and you’ve got a girly, feminine style. There are some steep discounts here for heels, flats, boots, sandals, and everything in between (like the Sophia Patent Leather Pumps, $125, marked down from $445). Word of warning: It’s all final sale, so this may be best for those who have already owned pairs from the brand and know their sizing works.

Spring: Spring’s “Sleep-In Sale” brings you a bunch of cool items all priced under $100. There are plenty of gems among the offerings for cheap: this denim dress is under $30, Vie Active ombre leggings are $39, and these extremely on-trend Kenneth Cole mules are $79.

Totokaelo: The sale section at Totokaelo has recently been refreshed, and now there’s all the Acne Studios, Rachel Comey, Rick Owens, and even Vetements your heart could desire. ($557.50 sweatpants, anyone? Hey, it’s better than the original $1,115!)

In Praise of the House Bra
Empire cast

When I got older and started hearing the common refrain “I can’t wait to go home and take my bra off,” I have to admit to being puzzled. What did one do braless? Wasn’t it uncomfortable? And then I realized that all the women excited to take their bras off had something in common: They had much smaller breasts than mine.

I used to pray for my boobs to come in. When I was in middle school and my training bra would ride up to my collarbone because there was nothing to train, I would lay in bed at night and pray for a good chest. Not too small, because I didn’t want to be part of the “itty bitty titty committee,” as the boys at school so cruelly labeled some of my classmates. But I never thought what would happen if my breasts came in… large.

Spoiler alert: They did. When I was in high school, my gym teacher pulled me aside and asked me why I was running with my arms pinned solidly to my chest. I just stared at him. No sports bra available to me pre-internet-commerce could tame those suckers. Even now, I have a bra size that most stores have never heard of, much less carry.

And thus was born the house bra.

Menswear’s Best Financial Investments
Insert alt text here

Financial advisors might tell you to make low-risk investments that will see your money grow slow and steady, but what if I told you it’s possible to buy clothing you love and still make a profit on the tail end? Come, step into my office.

Earlier this year, Baghunter reported that a Birkin bag is a safer investment than both gold and the American stock market (also known as the S&P 500). It’s hard to find such an exact comparison in menswear, but there are definitely certain items that, had you bet on them at retail, would be paying off handsomely right now.

For the person with the right eye and instincts, playing the clothing market is probably the most enjoyable get-rich-quick scheme. At least if things don’t work out, you have new clothes to wear, right? Besides, you can’t post sick Instagram photos of stock ownership and your 401k like you can a new pair of sneakers.

If you’re going to go this route, there are a couple things to know. According to Lucas Steuperaert, the menswear curator and editor at luxury resale site Vestiaire Collective, there are three characteristics that make an item a good investment: quality, desirability, and rarity.

Just One Thing
I Finally Bought the Leather Jacket I’ve Been in Love With for Years
Insert alt text here

The Cast Bowery Motorcycle Jacket, $395

I’m not the type of person to fixate on purchases, and I know people tend to throw around the term “obsessed” when talking about clothes they’ve bought or want to buy. But there’s one item I’ve legit been obsessed with for years: this leather motorcyle jacket from The Cast, a tiny punk boutique on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. And on Tuesday, I finally bought it.

I first fell in love with this coat in 2012, when I borrowed the same one from my roommate at the time (who has great style and owns more black clothing than anyone else I’ve ever met in my life). The few times I wore hers, I’d get compliments from such disparate types — my normally unfriendly bartender, Opening Ceremony employees, nerdy coworkers, actual bikers — this is a crowd-pleasing, no-one-can-deny-it’s-cool kind of jacket.

Back then, The Cast’s “Terminal Collection” Bowery Jacket was offered in a slightly thicker, softer leather, which meant it was a little more expensive than the style currently listed; the $650 price tag put it squarely out of reach for me and my assistant editor salary. By the time I could (maybe not responsibly, but comfortably) afford to drop that much at once, I already had a leather jacket — a super-nice designer one that was a gift — so it seemed like a silly, unnecessary purchase.

But you know what? The flame has been burning all these years. It’s not that I wanted a moto jacket, I wanted this moto jacket. It’s just so... perfect.

Lined in red satin and cut in thick, buffalo-hide leather (which would probably protect you if you fell off a bike), it’s sturdy and sharp, in the exact shape your mind’s eye would conjure if someone said “motorcycle jacket.” It’s got an interior flask pocket and shiny silver zippers and hardware. I love it as much as a human can love an inanimate object.

At $395, it isn’t that big of a purchase by some standards, but I’m still pretty sure it’s the most I’ve ever spent on something to put on my body. Mind you, this is only The Cast’s entry-level offering. The brand makes several options for men and women in all kinds of gorgeous leathers, including this amazing baby pink one, as well as custom creations where your imagination is the only limit.

Maybe someday I’ll upgrade — if dropping over a grand on a jacket ever feels comfortable — but as of this week, I’m going to wear it every single day until the heat of summer stops me. —Cory Baldwin, shopping editor
