42 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Barbour to Le Labo

Hoo boy: 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.

So 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.

These Sorel winter boots have a faux-fur “collar” and a sneakerlike sole.

We read somewhere that 2019 was the “year of the Continental,” and there’s still over a month left to get on it.

It’s very rare to see RE/DONE jeans for 50 percent off.

Which is why we’re throwing this pair into the mix as well.

Oh, and these as well, which have been targeting us on Instagram.

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.

A more approachable jacket — a slouchy number from Ganni.

Nice gift alert! The first in this roundup (there’ll be more).

Pair this with some black tights and some shiny shoes and you have yourself a holiday party outfit.

Another excellent gift; we’ve written about the joys of the Le Labo solid perfume before.

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.

Crocodile-embossed is our new favorite type of leather.

Our first (and only) nubby fleece of the roundup.

These sweatpants are a little more elevated than your standard.

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.

We noticed that a bunch of Backpacks were very discounted over at Backcountry — like this Patagonia daypack.

And these color-blocked Live the Process leggings.

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.

And these combat boots (which have a fun, red ribbony pull tab in the back) do not look like they cost $28.

The 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.

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.)

This is a very excellent ribbed, somewhat puffy-sleeved mockneck sweater from Apiece Apart.

Another very good gift: for a friend who currently carts her gym clothes around in a ratty tote.

A corduroy button-down in a really lovely shade of emerald green.

Either of the shirts above would look very handsome with these suede Common Projects sneakers.

These men’s winter boots are from Suicoke, the Japanese maker of fashion-editor-beloved kooky sandals.

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.

Shopbop’s up to 50 percent off sale began this morning, and these cozy, faux-fur-lined boots immediately caught our eye.

Same with this dreamy wool Acne scarf.

These velvet animal print Supergas fully delighted us.

An actually warm-seeming faux-fur jacket from LINE.

There’s a crazy sale-on-sale at Urban Outfitters (we learned just how crazy when our Deal of the Day yesterday sold out pretty much immediately), and hopefully Strategist writer Anthony Rotunno’s favorite soothing clock lasts a little longer.

This faux-fur jacket also has a faux-leather trim.

We’re sticking some things here that are on sale for today (Friday) only, like these eucalyptus lyocell sheets from Sheets and Giggles (we know, that name!), which we learned are some of the best cooling sheets for those who run hot.

A whole bunch of Frozen II toys are on sale — like this coding kit that will allow your Frozen fan to “conjure an ice palace” or “fill the screen with mini Svens.”

There’s also a CamelBak 40 percent off sale. We think this muted-green water bottle is quite lovely.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
