Mr. Porter’s end-of-season sales are always the most exciting sales event. Where else can you find discounted Drake’s ties and Edward Green shoes sitting alongside niche Japanese labels and American workwear? Tonight, they’ve discounted a round of spring/ summer stock by as much as 50%, but there are a few caveats. 

First, the discounts are still being rolled out and not everything is up yet. You can expect to see all the eligible spring sale items up by tomorrow morning, but it’s worth checking back every once in a while till then since the stock here tends to move quickly. Second, your best way to browse the store is to filter by categories and sizes – jackets in size small; boots in size 9; pants in size 32, etc. That way, you can serendipitously land on some expected finds. Third, for whatever reason, Mr. Porter’s site sometimes glitches during their sales events, especially if you’re using Google Chrome. If that happens, just switch to another browser. 

You can browse the sale on Mr. Porter’s dedicated sales page, at least for what’s currently already up, but here are some things I think are notable:

Footwear: Mr. Porter is one of the rare places where you can find high-end footwear labels such as Edward Green, John Lobb, George Cleverley, and JM Weston discounted. JM Weston has a rounded toe penny loafer called the 180, which I love to wear with jeans. The high sidewalls makes it both distinct looking and comfortable – a bit more unique than Aldens, but not as dressy as other European designs. Mr. Porter also has some Common Projects sneakers, Viberg work boots, Trickers suede derbies, Spalwart retro-runners, and Margiela German Army Trainers. I’m personally hoping these woven leather huaraches from Yuketen get discounted by tomorrow morning. 

Outerwear: I feel like a broken record recommending Margiela’s five-zip, but the jacket is still one of my favorite outerwear designs. I often wear the black leather or tan suede versions with slim jeans, white t-shirts, and side-zip boots. Mr. Porter has the tan suede one on sale this season, which I think would look terrific with mid-grey wool trousers, washed jeans, or raw denim. Private White VC’s moleskin bomber is a little dressier, and an impressive value at $270. Golden Bear’s varsity has a nice collegiate feel; Eido’s indigo-dyed parka will make you wonder if indigo is going to bleed all over your clothes when it rains (so, adding excitement to your life); and Engineered Garments’ corduroy ranch jacket looks like one of those easy-reaches when you’re not sure what to wear. Nonnative’s anorak, Mackintosh’s wool raincoat, and Valstar’s suede trucker are also standouts (especially the Valstar). I personally picked up this work jacket from Chimala to replace my French chore coat. Frances May has a good fit pic.

Shirts: I’m all about camp collars and prints at the moment. These from Margaret Howell, RRL, Orslow, Chimala, Camoshita, LVC, and Officine Generale look great, but I’m most excited about this sailboat print from Gitman Vintage (pictured above). I bought one last week and love how it looks with tan chinos and raw denim. Which are probably the only things you can wear once the temps soar this summer. 

Knitwear: This eggplant colored shawl collar cardigan from Cordings looks like a gem. 

Accessories: Drake’s brightly colored pocket squares and textured ties are especially nice this season (weirdly enough, some of Drake’s scarves are on sale right now at Nordstrom’s). There are also some great bags from Nonnative and Filson. Lastly, while it’s not technically an accessory, Cleverley Laundry’s fluffy terrycloth bathrobe looks like it’d be a nice home luxury at under $100.
