Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

The Anglepoise lamps were invented by the perfectly-named auto engineer George Carwardine in 1931, who developed a new type of spring — a sequence of these springs could reposition a pivoting arm with a light touch, yet keep the arm firmly in place. Still some of the best designed (and best-looking) desk lamps ever, they’re currently $50 off at Huckberry.

General Knot
Your trips just got more colorful. These made-in-the-USA, handcrafted travel kits are a mix of water-resistant cotton canvas, brass YKK zippers and buffalo leather handles, but what really stands out from other Dopp kits are the cool colors and patterns (Ivory Japanese Tidal Wave, Cotton Maize Space Dyed, etc.). A bunch of these kits are up to $30 off at Ahalife.

These shirting gurus just added a bunch of new items to their holiday sale, offering up to 60% off hundreds of blazers, flannels, peacoats and everyday button-downs.

Sales of note:

  • Ball and Buck: Take 40% off these rugged, everyday pants — we’re big fans (through 1/17).
  • Uniqlo: Cashmere sweaters down to just $60? We’re game.
