Everybody likes a good deal, especially when name-brand clothes, shoes, and grooming products are involved. Who says you need to pay top-dollar to get top-notch shit? Every year, Nordstrom hosts their Anniversary Sale, which is just an excuse for us plebeians to spend all our money on designer stuff and not feel guilty about it.
Instead of scrolling page after page until your eyes go numb, let us. Ahead, the 14 best buys at Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale.
I can’t say good enough things about Kiehl’s products. When it comes to your skin, only the best products will do (ya know, since this is your only body). Kiel’s rides the line between affordable prices and high-end skincare, and this body scrub is one of their bestsellers.
Complete with bits of bran and oatmeal, this body bar scrubs away dead skin cells and brightens skin tone all in one go.
I spent my college summers back home working in a golf pro shop at the retail counter, so I know a good golf polo when I see one. First off, every Peter Millar shirt is so stupid soft that they feel like the clouds of the heavens.
Always a trusted name in golf retail stores, a Peter Millar shirt should be seen as an investment. Taking your boss to the back nine? Leave your synthetic golf shirt at home and grab this lil guy instead.
Finally, a print from Vineyard Vines that doesn’t involve cartoon drawings of mint juleps. I’ve got nothing against their notorious use of patterns, but sometimes solids and stripes are all you need.
There’s still a solid chunk left of summer, and if you need a decent pair of swim trunks, these are your best bet when it comes to quality and price.
A slim, leather wallet is always a good idea. This one from Ted Baker is the perfect example of a great wallet. Its no-frills, simple design makes it both functional and beautiful.
If you haven’t noticed the adidas trend going on right now, you must not have a pulse. Truth is, fashionable sneakers are the new must-have staple for men. Now, I’m not saying you can run around in your favorite New Balances and call it a day. Sleek, modern sneaks like these are the move.
You can wear them casually with jeans or sneak them into your office wardrobe with the right chinos. The options are endless, my friend.
Pro tip: Invest in a leather cleaner, like this one from Jason Markk to keep your kicks spotless.
Another pair of navy trousers never hurt anyone—especially if they’re these ones from Hugo Boss. Since they’re wool, these are a prime investment for those of you living in states that experience the sensation known as winter. Sorry, Florida.
Are you truly a bro if you don’t have a leather-strap watch? If your current watch is falling apart, consider replacing it with this high-quality Nixon. It’s simple, durable, and still looks good—plus, it’s a Nixon. If you’re looking for a different style, Nordstrom has over 30 watches on sale for their anniversary, from Burberry to Ted Baker to Jack Mason.
It’s always a beautiful day when The North Face jackets find themselves on the sale rack. This jacket is both windproof and water resistant, so it’ll withstand any elements—though you may not.
This basic Lacoste polo is a great example of mandatory wardrobe items. A classic, white polo will come in handy more than you can ever expect. Plus, it looks good with everything. Jeans, chinos, trousers—seriously, everything.
Before you go rolling your eyes at the price tag, remember that this is JUMBO SIZE. 33 ounces of the best beard lube on the market is surely worth the discounted price of $60.
What makes this one so special is the fact that it’s a three-in-one. This beard lube acts as a pre-shave oil, shave cream, and after-shave conditioner. Key ingredients like jojoba and macadamia nut oil ensure ultra-hydration and a smooth shave.
Fact: Every bro needs a go-to gingham shirt. This Nordstrom-brand dress shirt comes in seven colors—one for every day of the week!
The way I feel about these shoes is the way I assume Michelangelo felt about his sculpture of David. Every time I see these To Boot New York shoes, a little part of me dies because they’re so GD perfect.
Not only do they go well with nearly every outfit, but they pull together you look every damn time. Pair ’em with trousers, a button-down, and blazer for work and you’re sure to turn heads.
What grown man doesn’t need an extra pair of chinos? If you’re re-reading the ‘extra’ in the last sentence, it’s time you added chinos to your style vocabulary. They’re lightweight, can pass for casual and formal outfits, and the go-to chameleon of your closet.
Plus, they’re available in both regular and tall options so everyone can take part in the discounts.
Round sunglasses like these are the universal ‘one size fits all’ of sunglasses. The shape is flattering on all face shapes (round, square, oval, and heart for those of you who didn’t know), and the reason New Yorkers only wear black is because it looks good with everything. Can’t fight that logic.
