Now, Nordstrom doesn’t do this sort of thing very often. They’re a respectable retailer that doesn’t need to rely on constant sales to move goods. They rely on their free shipping & returns policy as well as a record of excellent customer service to keep their customers coming back, as well as raising the industry standard.
With that being said, take heed of this sale. It’s a rarity and it’s a good one, so let’s dig into the best the sale has to offer.
If you’re into eco-friendly clothing, then you’ve probably heard of Threads for Thought. Whether you’re passionate about eco-friendliness or not they make thick, comfortable clothing with great attention to detail. The zipper & pull-string accents are what elevated this hoodie to our top choice.
A light sweater is great for year-round wear when you’re in a 70 °F office all week. Penguin is a great brand, and this reversible sweater is both nice looking on both sides as well as light enough to wear layered under a hoodie or coat. Funny enough, Amazon is crushing Nordstrom on the price of this piece of clothing so the link above is to the $18 Amazon product instead of the $46(!!!) Nordstrom price. Sorry we’re not sorry, Nordstrom!
There’s only one wash available, but it’s a great wash in a stretch fabric with quite a few sizes available… as long as your insteam is 32″. The 511 is Hacker Casual’s favorite cut right now, and with the Levi’s Summer Sale having recently ended on Wednesday, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better price for a while.
These shoes have dropped below $75 just two times this year so far. This is a great price to pick up a classic shoe that just keeps looking better as it gets weathered and worn. This classic shoe will never go out of style.
Bonus: Winter Jacket in July!
The most versatile jackets are thin fleece that are both windproof and water resistant. Everyone should own one. Picking up the Apex Bionic from The North Face during the off-season for under $120 is a steal. No kidding, a windproof fleece will keep you warm well below freezing. Much below 20 °F they’re thin and light enough that you can easily layer them under a shell. Note: I’m hearty Wisconsin stock, so your temperature sensitivity may vary from mine.
