Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale—aka our favorite summer fashion sale—is finally here, and the menswear deals are coming in hot. To give you a taste, we’re seeing markdowns on Theory polos, Allsaints Camp Shirts, and 7 for All Mankind jeans. In other words, this is a tightly curated selection of brand name duds that we’d actually pay full price for.
But even with all these great finds, Nordstrom’s sale selection is pretty vast, so navigating the sale can feel overwhelming. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. Ahead of the sale, we spent the past week combing through Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale inventory, consulted with our fashion editors on the best pieces worth shopping, and cross-referenced these markdowns with other retailers to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck. And we’re happy to report back that Nordstrom’s annual sales event lives up to the hype.
For great summer staples, we’re seeing great deals on Brooks Brothers’ Palm Seer Sucker Shirt, a short-sleeve button-down that looks great poolside, beachside, or really, just about anywhere. Meanwhile Van’s Primary Solid Shorts is a guy-friendly bottom that has a drawstring waist for extra comfort, and a flattering seven-inch inseam that provides ample coverage while still letting your legs breathe. If you’re looking to stock up on hot weather workout clothes, we’re seeing some great sales on Rhone’s bestselling gear, including the award-winning Gym Shorts and and Athletic Short Sleeve T-Shirt. Both have moisture- and odor-fighting fabrics that dry quickly and have plenty of stretch to help keep you feeling fresh during your most sweat-inducing exercises.
Based on years of covering Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sales, we predict that most of these deals won’t be this cheap until Black Friday, and that they’re bound to sell out fast. So if you see something you like in your size, now’s the time to shop.
