Shop the Best Men’s Fashion Deals from the 2021 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

nordstrom anniversary sale


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, folks. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Have you heard of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? You must have. I mean, technically by the time I asked that question I’d already mentioned it twice, so the answer has to be “yes.” But that doesn’t mean you know why this is a “most wonderful time of the year” kind of event for avid fashion fans and utilitarian shoppers alike. So let’s dig into what makes this such a big deal, briefly, before we dive into the actual items on offer (of which there are a whole lot).

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is beloved by fans, first and foremost, because it’s a kind of reverse approach to marking things down. Instead of offering discounts on old, out-of-season stock, the team at Nordstrom knocks a very respectable percentage off a bunch of brand-new merchandise. For the guys who can’t wait to Really Start Dressin’, that translates to a golden opportunity to stock up on fall-friendly pieces like jackets, overcoats, jeans, and boots. For the people who only care about making sure they’re not naked and their clothes aren’t falling apart when they step outside, it’s the perfect time to stock up on basics like socks, underwear, tees, and everything else that doesn’t necessarily get better with age. And, needless to say, the entire spectrum of shopping personalities between these two extremes is likely to find some discounted new arrival that piques some interest or raises an eyebrow (in a good way).

The even just kicked off on July 12 with a sort of preview-slash-early-access setup in which everyone can see what’s included in the sale, but only select Nordstrom cardholders can purchase for the discounted price. By July 16, all tiers of Nordy Club members can shop the sale before it becomes available to all on July 28. Prices go back to normal on August 9. The good news: Even if you’re not able to shop right now, you can build a wish list and establish buying strategy for the big day when the hordes descend and the good stuff gets snapped up right quick. But you don’t need to worry about missing out, because you planned ahead. Clever you. Start with the list below, and mark your calendar for July 28. It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, baby. This ain’t a game.
