There’s no denying that everybody loves the sale season. Seeing the word “SALE” emblazoned on storefronts in red and finding hidden gems in a pile of merch just gives us a feeling of unrivalled satisfaction – and we know it’s not just us. But our weary feet (and fingers) can testify that shopping the seasonal sale is a tiresome feat, requiring many hours of browsing through racks and scrolling through pages. Luckily for you, we’ve done the legwork on your behalf. We’ve curated a selection of the hottest products that HBX has on markdown right now. Whether you’re cash-strapped or just looking to score something high-end at a discount, we’ve got something for you.
Maison Kitsune Cardigan ($168)
Cardigans may be most associated with the grandfather generation, but this Maison Kitsuné cardigan is anything but out-of-date. Crafted from lightweight cotton perfect for bearing the summer heat, the cardigan features striped ribbed sleeves that give it a youthful, sporty vibe. For that casual prepster look perfect for lounging around in coffee shops.
White Mountaineering Printed S/S T-shirt ($98)
White Mountaineering is most known for its minimalist, functional performance wear, but it scores pretty high on the basics as well. This functional white tee comes embellished with the White Mountaineering brand logo in bold black type. Regardless of how you feel about shameless brand promotions, the clean lines of this White Mountaineering T-shirt might just persuade you.
Rick Owens DRKSHDW Kilt Pants ($588)
Designer Rick Owens isn’t one to be conventional. Case in point: he had models wear other models as backpacks in his Spring/Summer 2016 fashion show, and also enlisted black step dancers to present his Fall/Winter 2014 collection. These kilt pants are yet another example of the designer’s outlandish style choices, featuring a skirt overlaid on top of drop crotch pants. Androgyny at its best.
Filling Pieces Camo Quilt 2.0 Low Top Sneakers ($167.30)
For those who want to jump on the military style bandwagon without walking out in full-out fatigues, these sneakers from Filling Pieces are an acceptable compromise. The minimalist sneakers feature a leather upper quilted in a camo pattern, and are crafted in Filling Pieces’ signature low-top silhouette. This is as clean as it gets.
Stussy Slanted Socks ($10.50)
If you’re one of the many loyal followers in the Stussy fan legion, consider these socks for subtle brand repping in your everyday wear. The socks feature Shawn Stussy’s iconic signature logo printed on the sides, great for donning under a pair of Suicoke sandals and cropped pants.
Edwin Watch Camo Band With White Dial Epic ($84)
Japanese brand EDWIN may be most famous for its denim, but its line of watches has been steadily gaining a stream of followers with its Japanese textile-inspired designs. This watch takes its patterning from Japanese tiger camo fabric, making for a layered and intriguing time piece.
SILAS Brown Mark Sunglasses ($29.70)
London-born, Japan-based brand SILAS specializes in skate-ready streetwear with classic designs. These tortoiseshell-patterned sunglasses from Silas are guaranteed to add a vintage vibe to your summer wardrobe. Feel free to do your summer people watching behind these tinted shades.
Denim by Vanquish & Fragment Five Years Wash Wide Straight Denim Pants ($276.50)
If there’s one brand to take distressed denim to the extreme, it would be Denim by Vanquish & Fragment, the experimental brainchild of Japanese designers Ryo Ishikawa and Hiroshi Fujiwara. These jeans from the duo feature heavy-handed rips and patches on the thighs and knees, perfectly capturing an effortless aesthetic.
Adidas by Raf Simons Stan Smith ($192)
adidas Originals’ Stan Smith tennis sneaker has been through many reincarnations this year, but the collaborative version with Raf Simons just might be its most luxurious. The sneaker features a leather upper rendered in a metallic silver colorway, with a perforated “R” on the side for your subtle brand flashing needs. It’s a wonder this style hasn’t sold out yet, so cop it while it still comes in your size.
Stone Island 42236 Bomber Jacket ($355.95)
Stone Island’s outdoor gear is coveted by streetwear lovers all over, but can seem prohibitively pricey for the uninitiated. But the price is worth it for the brand’s high quality water-resistant fabrics, and slim yet well-insulated garments, adorned with Stone Island’s signature compass patch. At a discount, this jacket is an even sweeter deal.
