Here at the Strategist, we’re no strangers to scouring the internet’s sales bins to find the best daily deals on actually good products. But we’ve also been known to do some deal-making of our own — and as the weather starts to cool and the sun sets a little bit earlier every day, we thought now would be a good time to level up your loungewear and stock up on stuff that’ll make your bedroom feel a little bit cozier.

Below are eight deals — just for our readers — on some of our favorite brands, all of which we’ve written about on our site. If you’re in the market for new expert-approved underwear (for men or women), want to revamp your bedding for fall, or are finally ready to upgrade your well-worn pair of sweatpants, scroll down to shop all the picks. Most of these deals expire tonight (Tuesday, August 30) at 11:59 p.m. EST, so don’t sleep on them. If you want more sales coverage, sign up for our newsletter here so you don’t miss a thing.


Sustainable-underwear label Knickey makes one sexy granny panty. Its fan club includes Evelynn Escobar-Thomas, the founder of Hike Clerb, and stylist Mac Doyle. Escobar-Thomas says the brand’s all-cotton High-Rise Briefs are soft, don’t leave a line, and have become “the only underwear I want to wear,” and Doyle likes that the French cut provides coverage without bunching clothes underneath. If you’re not a fan of the granny panty, no worries: Knickey also makes more low-cut options and non-restricting bralettes, all from the same supersoft cotton. Now through September 2, you can score anything on the site for 20 percent off with code STRATSITEWIDE, including its expert-recommended High-Rise Brief and Low-Rise Thong, below. —Ambar Pardilla

Tommy John

Tommy John started by making men’s undershirts but soon expanded to include underwear and loungewear for women and men. Its Stay-Tucked undershirt remains one of our favorite tank tops for men, and its Second Skin boxer briefs have become our favorite trunks, made of a supersoft, moisture-wicking, and non-pilling micromodal fabric that still provides enough support down there. (They even get Kevin Hart’s seal of approval.) The brand’s wireless bras, which launched in 2019, are surprisingly supportive, and its briefs are nearly weightless and — dare we say — dainty. Until September 12 at 11:59 p.m. EST, the whole site is 20 percent off with code STRAT20 for our readers, so now’s the time to restock your drawers with some fresh drawers. If you need help choosing, here are some of our favorite expert-recommended undershirts, underwear, and bras from the brand. —Maxine Builder
