TOP Nordstrom Men’s Items from the Anniversary Sale – Neil’s POV

Okay, who else has a man in your life who never buys himself clothes?!

I always love getting Neil some new things at the Anniversary Sale, because seriously he would be wearing the same clothes that he wore in high school if I let him! …and he graduated 20 years ago.

Bottom line: men can be so hard to shop for, plus their clothes can be so dang expensive! One of the sections we were most excited to browse during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was the men's clothing. We found some awesome deals on shirts, jeans, and shoes for the guys in our life. Here are some of Neil's all time favorite pieces, all currently on sale up to 40% off!

Button-Up Cotton Shirt

I talked Neil into this Rails shirt and I'm so glad I did!! I thought it looked super nice on him and he loves the way it fits. Someone was saying in the review that it fit small, but he felt like it fit super true to size. It's a breezy cotton fabric, so it's a light-weight shirt that easily transitions from day-to-night! Also, every man could use just a good white button-up in his closet, right?! A really nice closet staple for men, and it's on sale for $69.90 (Orig. $118).

Paige Transcend Jeans

Of all the jeans Neil owns, THESE are his most worn and most loved – HANDS DOWN. This was the #1 pair that he wanted to replace because he’s worn them to death. There’s almost a hole in the pocket where he puts his phone because he’s worn them THAT much!

These jeans run true to size. They're the absolute softest jeans ever, and the best kept hidden secret. They're on sale for $133.90 (Orig. $209). They look great on your man during the day or if you're going out on the town at night!

Pacer Sneakers

One time Neil and I were in Nordstrom and he glanced at these shoes and made a comment how much he loved them. Sooo, I took note and bought them for him for Father’s Day and he absolutely LOVES them.

And guess what. They're on MEGA discount for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Normally $350, and on sale for $229.90 – that's $120 OFF!!! CRAZY good savings!

I bought these for Neil in navy, but they're on sale in gray (and I might need to buy them and store them away for Christmas). He says they’re SUPER comfortable, and sleek shoes to dress up an outfit or wear on a normal day.

These shoes also have PERFECT 5-star reviews. One reviewer said, “This shoe was better looking in person. It will get a lot of wear during the spring, summer and fall here in California. Very comfortable as well!”

Good Man Shirts

Good Man is one of the brands that Neil absolutely loves. He has some Good Man shirts that he’s worn for a couple of years, and they’re really, really high-quality and long-lasting! There are some great Good Man options in this year's sale, and these are specifically Neil's favorites out of all of them:

Henley: This is a soft jersey-feeling cotton shirt. It has three buttons coming down from the neck of the shirt, and in Neil's opinion offers high-quality comfort. This comes in both blue and black, and it's on sale for $49.90 (Orig. $88).

Stripe Jersey T-Shirt: This shirt has a v-notch neck line and is made of light-weight cotton slub jersey, so it's also extra soft! It's more of a casual shirt, and it comes in two bright, fun colors – turquoise blue and watermelon pink. On sale for $48.90 (Orig. $78).

Seven Diamonds Shirt

I’m pretty sure Neil wore a Seven Diamonds shirt on our very first date! So he’s loved them for years, he says they fit really great, and I think they look really good on him! He chose this Modular Mix Slim Fit shirt and loves how it fits and feels. Normally $79, but on sale for $47.90!

Sun Faded Slub Scallop Crew T-Shirt

I bought this shirt for Neil because I loved the look, and I could tell it would actuallly be long enough for his unbelievably long torso! And it’s $40 instead of $70!

It's a super great basic tee, and it comes in a bunch of other colors too – black, lilac, navy, blue bell, skyway blue, and white.

Vans Old Skool Sneaker

Neil immediately jumped on these Vans sneakers in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because Vans have been his favorite. He was especially excited because instead of $65, they are $42 right now! This pair is a cool-grey palette and a waffle thread-like texture. These fit on the smaller side, so size up 1/2 size.

  1. Short-Sleeve Button-Up Cotton Shirt
  2. Paige Transcend Federal Slim Straight Leg Jeans
  3. Henley
  4. Slim Fit Slub Stripe Jersey T-Shirt
  5. Modular Mix Slim Fit Shirt
