Ian’s End-of-Summer Picks 2017

Time to ditch the pool and start diving into those e-carts!

Hey dappers!
Yes, you heard that right. Say hello to the once overpriced linen shirt you’ve been drooling over for months.

While mother nature drops the inevitable bucket of cold rain this time of year, you can find me indoors, browsing the latest sales online. As I mentioned before, off-season shopping is the best kind of shopping. Why? because it gives us a leg up next spring. And practically speaking, you save a pile of dough.

All the items (with the exception of one) below are less than $100! #saywhat?

P.S. Hurry! Sale items disappear like crazy. If you see something, check, grab, and go. After all, Companies now afford hassle-free returns. You really can’t go wrong!

Now to the sales,


  1. The Polo Shirt | Billy Reid
A summer staple! I’m all about chic simplicity, and this polo does not disappoint!

2. The Straw Hat | Club Monaco
This hat screams #vacay. Perfect for anyone plotting their 2018 summer travel plans in advance!

3. The Striped Tee | H&M
Completely obsessed with the stripe contrast situation going on. Let’s be frank, this ($6.99???) tee is too cute to pass!

4. The Grey Sneaker | Johnston & Murphy via. Nordstrom
I tried them on at the J&M Flatiron District store months ago, and WOW, they were literally one of the comfiest dress sneakers EVER. Still regretting not buying these during the #NSale.

5. The Abstract Shirt | GANT
You know I can’t live without my infrequent offbeat patterns! This one takes the cake, with its cool brushstroke effect (I think it’s supposed to mimic the ocean though).

6. The Green Sunnies | Montblanc via. Century21
A nice alternative to the classic Ray-Ban. Digging the minimalistic profile, gold hardware, and mostly the square frames for my giant head. LOL!

7. The Fun Trunks | Grayers via. Tuckernuck
THE. CUTEST. PALM. PRINTS, y’all. Moreover, the dusty/periwinkle color is SO hard to find these days, no? Hurry: for $25…they will sell like hotcakes!!

8. The Romantic Scarf | Club Monaco
I can’t say enough great things about this scarf. The colors, texture, and length, everything is perfect. It’s a nice addition for that easy cherry-on-top punch, especially when the wind is wild!

9. The Cocktail Tote | Todd Snyder
A must-have for summer parties! Come stylish, with a few cocktails on-the-go (or in my case

-stuffing it with pens and journals instead).

10. The Unexpected Loafer | Billy Reid
Can we talk about the mix of subtle textures? Reid does a phenomenal job crafting elegant casual leather footwear with surprising details. Check out this similar pair on sale! (also Billy Reid)

11. The Summer Blazer | H&M
Lastly, a formal summer piece perfect for weddings and Sunday brunch. H&M offers a great selection of dapper blazers for a super affordable price at the moment!

Hope you enjoyed my EOS roundup and let me know your faves! Also, make sure to surf all the websites for more options!
