The Dappered Gift Guide for… The Tailored/Suited Guy

Tis the season. And by now you’ve probably been walloped over the head by 82,000 gift guides. So what’s a few more? Instead of doing a highly generalized, throw-everything-against-the-digital-wall gift guide, we’ll be breaking it up by category. Gifts for the guy who likes watches. Or the rugged type. Or the guy who’s really into shoes. Etc. We’ll cover all those, and hopefully a few more in the coming days.  

A Tipped Pocket Square: The Tie Bar – $11.99

The Tipped Pocket Square | Dappered.com Tipped pocket squares are great, because while the base is a dependable white linen or cotton, it’s the edges that bring a bit of color and personality. Think about what squares you’ve seen him wear. Does he have a preferred color? Have you seen him wear a tipped one before, with that color as its border? No? Then there’s the one to get. (more…)

Watch of the Week: Hermes Slim d’Hermes L’Heure Impatiente

At first glance, the Slim d'Hermes L'Heure Impatiente is your typical Hermes watch. Especially the font of the numerals and the shape of the lugs contribute to this unmistakable style. But on second glance: what are those indicators at the bottom of the dial, and why does it have not only an extra crown but also a pusher on the left side of the case? Because this Hermes comes with a very unique complication! READ MORE

Monday Sales Tripod – One of the Better JCF Sales, New Flint and Tinder, & More

The Thursday Handfuls are great, but what if Monday (or Tuesday) rolls around and there are a few sales that can’t wait til the weekend? You’ll find three of the best, with a few picks from each, to start the week below.

 

#1. J. Crew Factory: 50% off most + Extra 20% off w/ FROSTY

J. Crew Factory

Sure, their wheelhouse worsted wool suits are excluded, but just about everything else is up for the half off plus an extra 20% off discount. I honestly can’t recall the last time their cotton (but nice, it’s got a bit of texture/ruggedness to it) SLIM fisherman’s sweaters went for that low. Usually they kick around between $40 – $50 depending on the promotion. Code FROSTY is set to expire today, 12/10/18. Big thanks to Brandon D. for the tip on the brushed cotton blazer being at a rock bottom price!

 

#2. Huckberry: New USA Made Waxed Parkas – $398

Flint & Tinder Waxed Parka

A bigger, badder, winter-ready brother to their hugely popular waxed trucker (which are back in stock by the way). Made by Flint and Tinder which means they’re made here in the USA. Lined with wool through the body, sleeves, and hood. Not cheap, but something you’re gonna wear forever, and if you have kids, they’ll try and steal from you as they get older.

 

#3. Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue FIRST QUALITY – $225 ($425)

Allen Edmonds Fifth Avenue

I think this has been running for a little bit now? I don’t recall. Feels like it was an extension of their rediscover America Sale, but just on the Fifth Avenue cap toe Oxfords? Anyway, $225 for first quality AE wheelhouse dress shoes is a heck of a deal. Available with either leather soles or studded Dainite soles if you live in crap-weather-country. Big thanks to Joseph M. for the tip! Also, if you haven’t created an account with them yet? It’s super easy to do. You then become a “collector” and you get 15% off your first purchase for doing so. Drops these Fifth Avenues down to $191. Big thanks to Pedro S. for the tip!

 

BONUS: Saddleback: Spend $300 get $50, Spend $500 get $100

Saddleback

In case you missed it in the Thursday handful. You spend $300+ or $500+ and they’ll email you an e-gift card for $50 (if you spent $300+) or $100 (if you’re a big spender and went higher than $500). So it’s not technically a sale, but it is a pretty nice promotion. They do plenty of small stuff so one shouldn’t have a hard time spending fifty or a hundred from a gift card.

 

Also worth a mention…

  • Banana Republic: 40% off purchase + an extra 10% off w/ STYLE, and if you’re a card member, an extra 20% off w/ 20BRCARD
  • Allen Edmonds: Up to 25% off Select Boots
  • Brooks Brothers: 25% off w/ ENJOY25, plus you can stack that with a gift card deal that they’re doing: buy a gift card for $150 or more, you get an additional $25 gift card.
  • J. Crew: 50% off w/ MONDAY, but, usual exclusions apply and tons of stuff is sold out.
  • UNIQLO: Free shipping, no minimum.
