Save 30%: Since 1936, aviator sunglasses have protected the eyes of pilots across the world. The original Bausch and Lomb model was branded ‘Ray-Ban’ upon release to the public, and over the later half of the 20th century, it became a staple style for civilians. The design hasn’t changed that much and features convex tear-drop lenses and thin metal frames. Now at Nordstrom Rack, you can save 30 percent on a pair of classic Ray-Ban aviators. Available with both tortoiseshell and black temple tips, this iconic style is now only $105. — John Zientek
Oak Street Bookmakers Cap-Toe Boots
Save $176: Chicago-based Oak Street Bootmakers is one of a handful of companies handcrafting quality boots in the US from high-end leathers. Understandably, its boots fetch a fair amount of money, but Massdrop is offering up two styles of Cap-Toe boots from Oak Street for a steal. Both boots feature a cap-toe design and come in either a black calf leather from famed French tannery Tannerie d’Annonay or a chestnut-hued leather from Seidel in Milwaukee. Purportedly, these boots are made from overstocked leather from these tanneries exclusively for Massdrop; as such they can be picked up for just $250. Similar pairs of boots from Oak Street Bootmakers normally retail for well over $400. — Andrew Connor
Poppin Peak Desk Riser
Save $100: Whether at your cozy home office or at work, remaining seated for hours on end is no bueno. But, frankly, no one wants a purely stand-up desk. Despite what the internet may tell you, you are allowed to sit down at a desk now and then.
That’s where Poppin’s Peak adjustable height desk riser comes in. When in its lowered position, the contraption is just a monitor and keyboard stand — but pull a lever and lift to one of twelve different heights (a quiet thank you from my fellow short folk). The Peak desk lifter comes in small and medium sizes (get medium if you have two monitors), white and black colors, holds north of 30 pounds and lets off an industrious “I get shit done” vibe. It’s also $100 cheaper right now (with free shipping). — Will Price
Save 20%: In 1964, SeaVees launched its first lifestyle shoe — way before the Nike Cortez and Adidas NMDs took over your Instagram feed. While today we wouldn’t even flinch to think about wearing sneakers every day, in the 60s, it just wasn’t the norm. With retro-like vibes, the Legend sneaker from SeaVees worked then, as it does now, for everything from beach trips to laid-back summer Fridays. A variety of colors and styles are on sale right now for 20 percent off, just in time for the summer. — Meg Lappe
