Gentlemen, a lot has changed this year, but one thing definitely hasn’t.
The Black Friday sales are upon us once more.
And one thing’s for sure—your hard-earned dollars won’t go further at any other time of the year.
These are our picks of the best Black Friday weekend / Cyber Monday deals for guys, some of which are exclusive to TAM readers.
We’ll keep this list updated regularly throughout the whole dance so check back for new deals.
Happy shopping, boys.
If you’re not keen on looking like a sundried tomato later in life but don’t know where to start, Geologie provides affordable trials sets that are personalized to your needs. Thoughtful touches like packing in two face washes (one for the shower, and another for the sink) really show that Geologie has my back when it comes to building a routine.
Created by the famous Nordic designer behind Bang & Olufson, Nordgreen’s minimalist watches are as stunning as they are simple. While we struggled with minor issues like glare, these timepieces are classic wardrobe staples.
KOIO is an excellent choice if you’re willing to invest in high quality footwear that will last several years, but you still want to rock a slim, modern aesthetic.
One of our go-to travel pants, the Utiilitech brings together all the elements I look for in a go-anywhere pant. It's stretchy, but the fabric has a sturdy feel and holds up to a long day out and about. And I love the zippered back and hand pockets for safe storage on flights.
TEREN means "land" or "terrain" in Romanian---and that gives you a snapshot of what this outdoor performance brand is all about. I think their Lightweight Traveler Pants are one of their best pieces. They weigh just a few ounces which makes them super wearable, and they have high strength magnets (ever heard of that in a pair of pants?) that adjusts how buttoned they are depending on whether you're sitting or on the move.
TexTale is all about comfortable and eco-friendy apparel with a strict focus on fabric, craftsmanship, and design. And it shows---they've become an insider go-to for us here at TAM for basics.
Hailing from sometimes sunny, sometimes snowy Montreal, Lolë understand a thing or two about dressing for the seasons. While they're a little better known for their women's range, we've struck gold in their men's range---I particularly dig their joggers and trail jackets.
If you're like us and most guys we know, you're all about seeking simplicity when it comes to your grooming routine. Beardbrand understands this to a tee and delivers a versatile yet small range of quality products that you can use on your beard, hair, face, and skin. We rate.
If you're the kind of guy who's into capsule wardrobes, decanting your pantry goods and just all around minimalism, you'll be a fan of Nomatic. They serve up a stylish yet understated range of bags with thoughtful tech storage and hidden compartments, and we're here for it.
Fresh Clean Threads' tees have a unique, flattering fit that emphasizes your shoulders and doesn't swallow your arms. The cotton-polyester blend holds its color well and doesn't wrinkle easily.
TRUWEAR launched their first line of performance menswear designed for the office just last year. Even as a new brand, their focus on the details results in comfortable, flexible menswear that keeps up no matter how active your lifestyle.
The team behind Western Rise are experts with technical fabrics, and they’ve reimagined wardrobe staples with the modern world in mind. Though they have somewhat limited sizing, you can take these light, packable, and fashionable clothes anywhere.
Perk clothing takes the guesswork out of creating a simple, good-looking outfit. The look of their Feel Good Chino and Feel Good Tee is flattering and the color options pair nicely with anything. While the stretch fabric of the chinos provides easy movement, it could be a little softer to provide more comfort.
Just like a quality, well-constructed hoodie, standout jeans will also elevate the appearance of a watch. Mott & Bow makes denim with durable stitching, a lasting build, and fitted cuts that he can style down or up depending on the day.
If you’re a fan of understated essentials, high-quality design features, and being legs-up comfortable at all times, you’ll be a fan of Public Rec.
True Classic offers some of the best value and fit you can find in basic t-shirts. If you’re looking to stock your wardrobe with some simple tees that fit well, are flattering in the shoulders and chest, and don’t cost a ton, True Classic is a fantastic brand for you.
Brooks Brothers is an excellent brand for you if you want top-notch fabrics and a classic fit that accentuates your traditionally masculine features.
This relatively new brand is making big waves in the world of menswear with their Low 1 minimalist sneaker. But they're not just a one-trick pony.
Vuori’s lineup of performance-wear looks and feels good. Their sizes are on the small side, so if you’re in between, go larger. Their customer service is on-point so you can focus on getting clothes that take you from the gym to the lake to a Sunday stroll.
VAER is a prime example of the shift in watchmakers toward quality and affordability. As a small brand, there are some struggles around shipping times, but their field watches offer killer value that’s hard to find elsewhere.
Give your balls a spa day, bro. Take a whack at the overgrowth using Meridian's knickless trimmer, pamper those pups with the Ball Spray, gently place a cucumber slice on each member of your congress, blast that relaxing music, and call it a day.
Fabric is what sets The Perfect Jean apart. True denim is 100% cotton. Most jeans on the market today have one or two per cent spandex added for additional stretch and comfort. The Perfect Jean, however, is a nice, lightweight 10.5oz denim with 30% polyester, 3.5% viscose, and 2% spandex added, which makes for a wildly comfortable jean.
With their high-quality essentials apparel and an ethical approach to clothing production, it's no surprise that Everlane is fast becoming the go-to retailer of choice for guys who like to keep it simple.
I like that Indochino offers a huge selection of customization options, like lapel style, buttons, linings, and monograms. However, the suit I had made didn’t fit as well as I’d hoped from a custom fitting. That said, the brand offers a Perfect Fit Promise and is still a solid choice for custom-made, affordable suits.
Amazon is running some really solid deals for Black Friday this year, including on Ray-Ban, Levi's, Calvin Klein, Hey Dude Shoes, Citizen, and more.
