One of my favorite blogs, appropriately named “Bowties & Boatshoes,” posted today about J. Press’ Shaggy Dog sweaters, saying that if everyone says that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then “J. Press should be one of the most flattered brands around.”
The Shaggy Dog is a prep classic but is perhaps out of the price range out of some, with a $195 price tag (though currently on sale for about $150). If that’s still a little steep, though, do check out Rugby’s version of the brushed Shetland sweater, which is currently priced at less than $50 due to the line’s imminent closing at the beginning of next month. I have one myself and love it!

I’ve been on the lookout for some reasonably priced wingtips since the ones I’ve worn for a little over two years have started coming apart a bit. (Not a bad run for $60 dress shoes, right?)
The $225 you’d pay full retail for the Goodyear-welted Prestons still isn’t bad, though, especially relative to similar shoes like the Darltons (now known as the Marlow), which will cost you a whopping $850. For an even better deal on an already (relatively) cheap shoe, check out eBay like I did for some really good options if you can find your size. Good luck!
Been eyeing some Persols lately but can’t stomach the thought of paying over 300 bucks for a pair of glasses you’ll probably end up sitting on before the summer’s out? Check out these sunglasses from Warby Parker that give you the Persol look for less than a third of the price.
Plus, even if you do sit on these glasses, at least your purchase provided a pair of glasses to someone in need, through WP’s “Buy a Pair, Give a Pair” program. If you’ve never heard of Warby Parker before, click here to read this recent interview with founder and Wharton alum Neil Blumenthal.

(Almost) all pants and shirts are just 29 bucks, for one day only, and that includes full-priced items. Lands’ End is one of the most underrated brands, in my opinion, and the Canvas line is Lands’ End’s premium offering. Some great deals to be had today.

Looking for a cheap and stylish way to keep warm this winter? Pick up one of these quilted jackets from Lands’ End for less than $50. Keep your eyes peeled for sales as well — I picked mine up for only $35. Compare it to the $295 you’d pay for Ralph Lauren’s Richmond Quilted Jacket or the $149 you’d pay for Barbour’s Liddesdale.
For the ladies out there, pick up this version. (Unfortunately most colors are already sold out).
