Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono
Tom Clancy’s legendary character, Jack Ryan, has returned for a new series streaming on Amazon Prime, and on the wrist of the CIA analyst who dutifully serves his country is the Hamilton Khaki Field Auto Chrono in full black.
The trusty timepiece draws on Hamilton’s rich military history for a rugged and robust chronograph offering 60 hours of power reserve. The 42mm stainless steel case is PVD-coated in full black, and the sporty black rubber strap offers comfort in a snug and secure fit.
Luckily, the watch is available to both intelligence officers and regular Joes alike.

SeaVees Sneakers and Slip Ons
Save up to 54%: You might not know it, but SeaVees is a sneaker OG. It’s been around since 1964 when it was created by the tire company BF Goodrich, which was looking for something productive to do with all of its excess rubber. PF Flyers was another shoe brand in its portfolio, as was Jack Purcell (now owned by Converse). All specialized in vulcanized rubber soles, but unlike those companies, SeaVees remained relatively in the background until Steven Tiller and Derek Galkin stumbled across a vintage pair in a Tokyo storefront in the early 2000s, and decided to revive it.
Now SeaVees is back, embracing the nostalgia of its heritage with remakes of early styles like the 06/64 Legend Sneaker. All of its silhouettes are designed with comfort — and an explicit take on the California ethos — in mind. Right now, many of its styles are on sale at Huckberry for as much as 54 percent off. — Tanner Bowden

To make way for new fall-season gear and products a handful of brands are running blow out sales, including Bell Helmets. Right now you can save up to $150 on select helmets like the Bell Moto-3 and Bullitt. — Bryan Campbell
Weber Spirit II
Save $100>Weber’s Spirit II grills are the 2018 update of its popular Spirit grill of yesteryear. It’s a full-size, do-everything gas grill designed intentionally for the newer grill cook — a streamlined grease drip, low-maintenance enameled iron grates, instant ignition and a very generous 10-year warranty program. It also brings 529 square inches of grill space, which is good for roughly 25 burgers (approximately 20 square inches per burger) and uses solid materials (cast aluminum instead of all stainless steel, for example).
Usually retailing for just under $600, today the grill is $100 off on Amazon. — Will Price
Dockers Alpha Original Chinos Are Just $20
Save 71% on these Wardrobe Essentials Like french fries and paid vacation days, great chinos are the kinds of things that you can’t have enough of but always seem to be in to be in short supply. But right now, Nordstrom Rack is selling Dockers’ excellent Alpha Originals for just $20 — a savings of 71 percent from their regular price. The trousers feature a slim (but not skinny) fit, and just the right amount of stretch to move with you. — Justin Fenner
Flint and Tinder Moleskin Shirt Jacket
Save 52%: With cool weather right around the corner, it’s about time to start investing in some well-made layering pieces. An overshirt is one of the best garments you can buy because it can stand alone as a light top layer or function as a warm mid-layer beneath a jacket when the temperature drops below freezing. Flint and Tinder makes a great option that is sourced, cut and constructed in America. The soft Moleskin Shirt Jacket has two chest pockets, welt handwarmer pockets and a snap-front closure. Available in navy, it will readily compliment your existing wardrobe and won’t seem dated as seasons change. Right now, at Huckberry, it’s 52 percent off and costs just $90 — quite a value for an overshirt like this. — John Zientek
