Sales for the Young Man

by Mackenzie M. | July 25th, 2012 | Men's Shopping, Sales

As August is just around the corner, the time to snatch up trendy clothes at back to school sales is about to begin. For the college-aged man in particular, this is a crucial time to prepare outfits for the year, without spending tons of money. As I wrote in a previous article, the massive les soldes, or sales, are happening around the world.

For men in America, the bargains again lie at Zara. Found in most major cities in the United States, as well as online, Zara has the most trendy styles of the fall, and for up to 75% off. Although I’ve featured Zara before, now is specifically the time for young men to invest with the sales approaching.

The trend this fall seems to be heading toward jackets. Whether it be light jackets, or heavy winter parkas, these items are already on sale at Zara. No matter where you are in the country, it will get colder as the school year passes. Now is the best time to buy a stylish winter coat in preparation for walking around campus during the brisk days of fall.

Some of the most popular jackets include those with a contrasting hood, a parka with pockets, and a simple jacket with contrasting bands. The simple jacket with contrasting bands is on sale for nearly 60% off, while the others are offered at the low price of $50, as opposed to their original $160 price tag. Be sure to head to the local Zara to snatch up some jackets. Otherwise, the online shop still has many sizes in stock.

Another necessity for fall on campus is plenty of plain sweaters. These are also discounted. The thick knit sweater is offered in several colors, and it is on sale for $20, as opposed to the regular price of $50. Other sweaters do not have as deep of discounts, but still warrant a look.

For those who live in warmer areas of the US, many of Zara’s famous t-shirts are on sale as well. Linen t-shirts with bright colors or stripes are on sale for $17 per shirt, but after another week or two into August the discounts should lower even more. Bermuda shorts in either home-wear fabric or chinos are on sale for around $17, down from their regular price of $30. Pair these with the sweater to make a classy fall ensemble.

Because Zara is usually relatively cheap, as soon as the new collections arrive, many more discount fashions will be available. Otherwise, other trendy stores, such as H&M and even J. Crew, are starting to have back to school sales on their websites.

To look your best this fall, check out the bargains now. Don’t wait until the leaves turn colors!
