Cyber Monday can be kind of a crapshoot. There are a lot of great sales (and we’ve rounded up the best of them for you to shop now). Then, there are the not-so-great ones. We can ignore those, no problem. And then there are the truly great, “holy shit that price can’t be real, can it?” sales that really get us excited for Shoppin’ Season.
J.Crew has one of those sales going on right now. You can buy an unstructured Ludlow suit for just over $100, and it’s available in goes-with-everything navy.
Here’s how it breaks down: the suit jacket is $69.50, and the pants are $39.50. All in, you’re paying $109 (plus any shipping and taxes) for a fan-favorite suit that’s more than proven its utility and style over the last decade or so. That’s pretty damn impressive.
All that said, there is one catch: The suit that’s on sale is a cotton-and-linen mix. That means it’s far better suited for summer than the colder days ahead.
If that’s got you wondering whether this suit is worth the purchase, consider this: In not too long, the clouds and snow will give way to sun—and sweltering temperatures. You’ll still need a suit, for work stuff, weddings, and all the other occasions that demand you dress up. You’ll reach into your closet, and find this versatile, lightweight two-button. And then you’ll think back to today, when you bought it for a price that seems almost impossibly low, and pat yourself on the back for being so clever and thinking ahead.
