After their website crashed yesterday during Cyber Monday overload, Eddie Bauer generously decided to extend its 50% off everything sale one more day (code: ONLINE50). If your man is like my man — preppy by day, adventurer by weekend, doesn’t care two shakes about labels and in fact gets mad if you buy too much luxury label stuff for him — then Eddie Bauer is a great place to pick up work and weekend basics.
Hopefully my guy isn’t reading this post because inside are some of the great items I bought him that you can find for half off today…assuming they haven’t sold out yet, which they just might…
Come the weekend my dude pretty much lives in henleys, and the Men’s Eddie’s Favorite Thermal Henley Shirt ($45 + 50% off) is a fantastic choice. The contrast strip in the placket is a nice touch, and my guy reports these are comfortable and soft. They wash well, don’t fade and while we occasionally get a poor quality one in general they are made pretty well and last a long time. Available in 7 colors, and somehow the sizing seems to work well both on tall and slim men like my boyfriend and bigger guys like my friend’s corn-fed farm-raised boyfriend.
For the deep dark days of winter, this henley also comes in a thicker cotton sweater version that is still relatively lightweight, as our men tend to be furnaces, don’t they?
Another favorite of mine and my guy’s is the Treeline II Long-Sleeve Shirt ($60 + 50% off), which comes in the plaid shown above as well as a great chambray color with contrast inside the cuffs. It looks super sharp on his tall, slim frame and works well under weekend blazers.
We like to layer these casual shirts under a combination of something like the Cascade Falls Sherpa-Lined Hoodie ($80 + 50% off, soooooo soft) and the Voyager II Travel Blazer ($149 + 50% off, amazing for travel), or something like the Radiator Full-Zip Jacket ($80 + 50% off) and the IgniteLite Reversible Jacket ($179 + 50% off).
You certainly won’t be lacking great gift ideas for any of the men in your life during this one-day 50% off everything sale at Eddie Bauer (code: ONLINE50)! Below are several outfit ideas that I may or may not have bought some of the men in my life as Christmas presents.
