Diggy’s Picks – 2020 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

The only constant this year has been the consumption wine. Except this time we’re drinking a LOT more of it. Well, it’s time for the second constant – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! As someone who loves fashion & shopping, I put a personal guide together for two reasons: 1) I like helping guys step up to the plate fashion-wise, and 2) I know the women in y’all’s live are tried of you looking like you got dressed in the trunk of a Volkswagen. Yes, my job is to help you match the fashion forward woman in your life, because trust me, I know you’re lagging behind. Not to worry though, I’m a team player and don’t mind helping.

As your wife/girlfriend/female bestie can attest to, things in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale go quickly. Fortunate for us, our items tend to hang around a bit longer. See below for the Top 25 things left for men at Nordstrom from their 2020 Anniversary Sale.

5-Pack Boxer Brief

You’re spending a LOT more time at home these days, and definitely probably have rocked underwear around the house in your Zoom meetings. Add to your new 2020 work “wardrobe” with this Calvin Klein staple.

Marco Burnished Leather Belt

Fellas: Among other things, ladies always judge you by the little things like: how you accessorize, cleanliness, credit score etc. Start off on the right foot by adding this simple brown belt to your collection!

Quay Australia x ARod 52mm Polarized Sunglasses

I’ve been to Australia, and trust me, they do everything right. That includes these Quay Australia shades that will have you looking like you’re a million bucks while spending significantly less. (Also: Chrissy Teigen loves them, and she can do no wrong.)

Textured Faux Leather Duffle Bag

I know travel is minimal right now, and your only destination is to the mailbox or backyard. But for those long road trips, this Ted Baker duffel will have you doing so in style!

Stan Smith Low Top Sneaker

An all white sneaker is a must have! A simple classic like this Stan Smith low top speaks volumes. The hard part? Keeping them clean. At this price? Go ahead, grab two pairs!

Jack Purcell Gold Standard Sneakers

If you’re worried about keep your white sneakers pristine, here’s another classic alternative by Converse. The Jack Purcell staple will elevate any outfit without drawing attention.

New Balance 997H Sneaker 

Want to add a pop of color? This silhouette is a great, and affordable way to do it! We’re WAYYY past the New Balance stigma of being for old men (as a sneaker collector, I’ve been past it for years). This New Balance colorway will turn heads and for the right reasons.

Wakefield Grand Waterproof Chelsea Boot

A Chelsea boot is one of the few footwear pieces that will never go out of style. Add this pair by Cole Haan to your collection for a great price, and you can match them with practically anything. Except shorts. Please don’t.

Scuff Slipper

Wait!! Before you scroll past this because it’s made by UGG and you’re a guy, just know I paid full price for these and I regret nothing! Since you’re home now more often, do it comfortably. At half the price, I know you’ll be twice as happy as I was!

Miler Future Fast Running Tank

She’s not going to tell you, so I will. She’s tired of you working out in that cotton shirt with the holes in the chest. Upgrade to this workout tank, and don’t let the name fool you. You don’t need to be fast to rock it.

Slim Fit Henley

A Henley like this is the easiest way to elevate your t-shirt game. At a fraction of the price, it’s a staple every man should own. It accents your shoulders, which I’m TOLD is the favorite body part of your female counterpart. Just saying…

Slim Fit Hooded Pullover

I get it. Your favorite hoodie is one you won at a tailgate, and it has sentimental value. I have those too. But sometimes a hoodie without a bulldog on it is the answer. This hoodie by Vince is a hit across the board, with the quality to back it!

Tortila Slim Fit Tipped Pocket Polo

Don’t like to dress up? Fine. A simple polo like this could be worn in place of a t-shirt for your more “formal” kickbacks. Wear this when you have to wash all your basic tees!

Everett Slim Straight Leg Jeans

We can never have enough (me included) and for this price, this pair of AG jeans are a steal. All jeans are not made equal, so I’m sure you can find room for these.

SUD Slim Straight Fit Pants

Blue jeans? Check. Now we need to check the rest of the color wheel, and this option by AG is a great choice. Give the blue a rest, and try a different color.

Washed Stretch Chino Shorts

We still have a bit of summer left right? Keep those legs out with this pair by Bonobos. The above the knee looks is one of sophistication and confidence that every man should have!

Stretch Weekday Warrior Slim Fit Dress Pants

I know, I know. We work from the kitchen countertop and the dress code at your “home office” doesn’t require these. But one day soon, you’re going to want/have to ditch your basketball shorts for your formal events, and this pair from Bonobos will do just the trick!

Bonobos Slim Fit Short Sleeve Button-Shirt

Rock this patterned short sleeved shirt to your picnic, BBQ, or any other opportunity you have to leave the comfort of your bed. The chambray gives just the perfect accent to the outfit, giving the outfit a perfect 10/10.

Highway Star Slim Fit Short Sleeved Button

If you look in the sky and notice there are stars missing, it’s because they’re all on this shirt. The simplicity of this shirt speaks volumes and is super versatile with whatever you want to put on the bottom.

Slim Fit Short Sleeve Button-Up Shirt

You were supposed to go to the islands this year, but since you can’t let your shirt go for you. This tropical short sleeved shirt pretty much screams 80 degrees and sunny. Pineapple beverage sold separately.

Slim Fit Print Stretch Button-Up Shirt

Need something of the longer variety? Gotcha covered. This muted pattern shirt allows you dress up your favorite pair of jeans. With the perfect tailored length, don’t worry about tucking it in. But before you ask, YES. Wear a belt.

Slim Fit Solid Stretch Cotton Shirt

Never forget, there will always be a place for the standard white dress shirt. But remember, you don’t need to pay an arm and a leg for it. This option by Boss makes a great option for a man who wants to “formal it up.” (Pro Tip: You should always have more than one white dress shirt.)

Jay Trim Fit Wool Suit

It’s true: The suit doesn’t make the man, the man makes the suit. An option like this (once tailored) will definitely make the man make heads turn.

Bonfyre Slim Fit Knit Jacket

It’s 80 and humid now….but eventually Fall will be here. Fall is my favorite time for fashion, and this jacket is a great example why. Layer this with one of your favorite tees for an amazing look.

Marc New York Doyle Soft Shell Jacket

When those temps drop, be ready…but at a fraction of the price. This jacket is a great & stylish option to show people that you know how to beat the cold temps in style!
