Black Friday is exactly a week away and we are already completely overwhelmed by the already excellent sales bombarding us. Below, the best of the best of the current sales; we’ve paid special attention to items that would make good gifts.
Veja + Net Sustain V-10 Bastille
the Net-a-Porter sale (which we think is its Black Friday sale more or less) is really great at the moment, and at press time at least, there’s still quite a bit of stock left, so we are going to spend a little time surfacing some gems if that’s all right. We are officially Veja-sale watchers these days, and this is a good price for these cheerful green ones.
Sorel Explorer Joan Ankle Boots
winter boots have a faux-fur “collar” and a sneakerlike sole.
Adidas Originals Continental 80 Sneakers
We read somewhere that 2019 was the “year of the Continental,” and there’s still over a month left to get on it.
RE/DONE Originals High-Rise Ankle Crop Skinny Jeans
It’s very rare to see RE/DONE
jeans for 50 percent off.
RE/DONE Ultra Stretch Medium 53 Skinny Jeans
Which is why we’re throwing this pair into the mix as well.
RE/DONE Comfort Stretch Cropped High-Rise Skinny Jeans
Oh, and these as well, which have been targeting us on Instagram.
Barbour + Alexa Chung Maisie Jacket
We’ve been coveting this Barbour + Alexa Chung jacket since it was released, and it’s now inching somewhere toward a vaguely more realistic purchase.
Ganni Wool-Blend Bouclé Jacket
A more approachable jacket — a slouchy number from Ganni.
Acne Studios Pansy Face Beanie
Nice gift alert! The first in this roundup (there’ll be more).
Ganni Gingham Crepe Mini Dress
Pair this with some black tights and some shiny shoes and you have yourself a holiday party outfit.
Le Labo Iris 39 Solid Perfume
Another excellent gift; we’ve
written about the joys of the Le Labo solid perfume before.
Coach Round Coin Case
So we covered a few Coach items in last week’s sales roundup, but we realized that we merely
skimmed the surface of the 30 percent off sale. This coin case would be a great gift for a sister-in-law type.
Coach Hayden Foldover Crossbody Clutch
Crocodile-embossed is our new favorite type of leather.
adidas Must Have French Terry Pants
These sweatpants are a little more elevated than your standard.
Brooklinen Classic Duvet Cover
Now, a few things from roundups we’ve written about this week (
so many sales!) that you may have missed. Brooklinen launched its Black Friday sale yesterday, and its classic duvet cover is now $87.
British M Organics Annatto Hair Oil
Patagonia Arbor 20L Daypack
noticed that a bunch of Backpacks were very discounted over at Backcountry — like this Patagonia daypack.
Goop x Universal Standard Brushed-Black Jumpsuit
Live the Process Transcend Color-Blocked Leggings
And these color-blocked Live the Process leggings.
Scoop Faux Fur Leopard Mini Backpack
Yes, Walmart has a ton of Black Friday deals up already (we’ve been tracking them
here), but there are also some non-B.F. deals afoot, like this li’l leopard backpack from Scoop that’s a good gift for a teen type.
Scoop Maxine Lug Sole Combat Boot Women's
And these combat boots (which have a fun, red ribbony pull tab in the back) do not look like they cost $28.
Veja Nova V-logo Low-Top Trainers
Matches Fashion sale launched this week, and like with Net-a-Porter, we want to devote some time to it. Well, wouldn’t you know it, another pair of Vejas.
Isabel Marant Etoile Killiann Scoop-Neck Slubbed Linen-Jersey T-Shirt
There’s no two ways about it: $99 is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on
a white T-shirt, but, oh, Isabel Marant T-shirts are so good. (And it’s even more ridiculous to spend $165 on one.)
Apiece Apart Sequia Ribbed Cotton-Blend Sweater
This is a very excellent ribbed, somewhat puffy-sleeved mockneck sweater from Apiece Apart.
Adidas by Stella McCartney Studio Shell Tote Bag
Another very good gift: for a friend who currently carts her gym clothes around in a ratty tote.
A.P.C. Button-Down Cotton-Needlecord Shirt
A corduroy button-down in a really lovely shade of emerald green.
A.P.C. Chicago Brushed Cotton-Twill Shirt
A more classic A.P.C. button-down.
Common Projects Achilles Suede Trainers
Either of the shirts above would look very handsome with these suede Common Projects sneakers.
Suicoke Alal-wpab Waterproof-Leather Boots
men’s winter boots are from Suicoke, the Japanese maker of fashion-editor-beloved kooky sandals.
Sophie Monet The Configuration Wood Hoop Earrings
We missed a few things from the Moda Operandi sale
we covered the other day … like these wood hoop earrings from L.A. jewelry designer Sophie Monet.
