Every year at Easter, it’s the same story. People head out looking for chocolate eggs (or something). But not me. I usually pour myself a nice cup of coffee, sit on my couch and get weird -looking for bargains. I call those Easter bargains. Don’t judge. This year, this journey took me to my favorite menswear e-shop, End Clothing, but also to Farfetch, which I browse less often. Here’s what I found. If you like what you see, hurry up, sizes are limited. Oh and happy Easter, folks!
Why? Because there’s no such thing as too many Breton shirts (or marinières, as the French call them). I mean, seriously, stripes. If you need only one, Armor-Lux is the way to go. Plus, it’s made in France.
Why? Let’s face it, we’re too old (stylish?) to wear poorly designed trousers from H&M. We just are. And when it comes to well engineered pants, one has to look to Italy. It’s a fact. Plus, we’ve been obsessed with Venice-based Incotex for a little while, so there.
Why? So that one is a bit controversial because, well, not everybody likes tassels. That being said, we’re talking about a pair of Grenson shoes. Grenson, people, Grenson. For that price? Just go for it and you’ll deal with your aversion for tassels later.
Why? Because even though everybody in London got super excited last weekend because it was sunny for a couple of hours –including myself, I must admit– it’s actually still pretty nippy out… Cover those ears, fellas!
Why? I mean, that one’s basically a no-brainer. A NATO-style Timex watch that’s nearly 50% off? Get one a week (not quite, but you get the idea).
Why? Well, those Incotex trousers have to stay up, don’t they? I kid. But that’s a classic belt, made in Italy, and it’s discounted. So why not go for it? That’s the type of item you should only ever get on sale.
