Randolph Engineering Concorde Sunglasses
Is ... is that light I see? It’s gettin’ bright out, so pull out a pair of aviators — and start with these cool frames, designed by the family-owned, Massachusetts-based Randolph Engineering. Handcrafted in the USA, the four available frames here are just $100 at Massdrop. That's more than half off.
Milwaukee M18 Li-Ion
Even in my cramped NYC apartment, the one tool I need outside of a screwdriver and hammer is an electric drill. This compact model (seven-and-a-quarter inches long) lets you get into tight spaces, and it comes packed in an all-metal gear case with two batteries — which can be used in over 150 different tools also made by Milwaukee. Now $119 (down from $179) with free shipping.
The Blackjack Watch
Inspired by the jetsetting drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s, this timepiece collab between Todd Snyder and Timex evokes both car speed dials and roulette wheels. As one commenter puts it, “There's a time and place for subtlety and nuance, but sometimes whatcha really want is punch and panache.” Now under $100, down from $138.
Sales of note:
- J.Crew: It’s 30% off mens’ (and boys’) suiting with the code NEWSTYLES. Ends Sunday.
- Uniqlo: There’s a lot of new savings to be had on coats, sweatshirts and jeans.
