Hi, everyone! I’m home sick today with the flu, so I figured I’d share some of the items that I picked up for my husband, Justin, during the Johnston & Murphy post-holiday sales. They are having a FINAL CLEARANCE SALE right now, so these items are on deep discount while they clear out their inventory for Spring. It’s a great time to spend those holiday gift cards, while the weather is still frigid and the sales are hot!
Don’t worry, I rounded up a few sale items for us ladies as well!
QUICK NOTE: If you haven’t entered the SMILE BRILLIANT GIVEAWAY, it ends this Thursday (January 11, 2018). You could win a FREE at-home teeth whitening kit, and you’ll get a special discount code just for entering! See my full review of their product and whitening tips HERE.

If you’ve never shopped at Johnston & Murphy, they carry quality pieces for men and women, from work-wear to weekend-wear. My husband loves to get his work shoes from there (he wears suits every day) and has sworn by the quality for years.
After a major closet clean out, I wanted to grab a few new pieces for Justin to wear when we go out to dinner, visit with friends, and generally leave the house.
We’ve never tapped into their casual wear before, but have admired it in the catalog, so I figured we’d give it a shot–especially since they’ve been having some incredible sales lately!
Here are the items we picked out together. I should add: he isn’t particular about most things, but he was excited to get some new gear from his favorite store!
What We Bought
I love how guys look in jeans and shoes. Athletic sneakers are great when you are headed to the gym or a sporting event, but when you are putting yourself together, leather shoes are a really nice complement to a collared shirt, sweater and jeans. These have a comfortable/casual sole that looks like he put in a little effort, without looking stiff. Plus, they are now under $100!
A general guideline I stick to is that your leather should match. When we picked out the oil-tanned leather shoes, we opted for a matching belt. I love that this one has the double layer detail and stitching on it that set it apart from every other belt Justin owns. It’s not included in the sale, but at $60 it’s a good buy.
Admittedly, we own too many jackets. That being said, this one will replace several others because it can be dressed up or down, and is the perfect length to keep out the cold without getting in the way.
We had to call several other stores to find this one in his size, but it was worth the effort. This might be his favorite pick from the sale because it’s tailored so well, and it’s under $180!
We didn’t get the brown tweed version with the notched collar (pictured above), but I’m including it in case the size you are looking for in the charcoal Diagonal Wool Car Coat isn’t available. Same length, different style.
We both love contrasting cuffs on collared shirts, but we don’t love some of the outlandish patterns that adorn some of them. The colors and prints from Johnston & Murphy are modern classics, and they are nicely tailored for a flattering fit–perfect for date night or cocktails with friends. Did I mention they are on sale, plus buy one, get one 50% off + FREE shipping?
Another Item I REALLY Like
My plan for Christmas was to surprise Justin with a pair of warm leather boots from Johnston & Murphy. I picked these because they look classic and are lined in shearling–perfect for chilly outings! Unfortunately, the size I ordered was way off (my error), so when we went to the store to return them, he picked out the brown shoes above, instead. I’m just happy he found something that suited his taste! These would be a great pick for any guy who is looking for a solid, warm, classic boot. With the sale price, they are now under $170.

Women’s Sale Items
Although I’d say Johnston & Murphy “specializes” in menswear, they have branched out into the women’s market as well. I have a pair of flats from here, and their quality is top notch (their flats have arches!).
I’ve rounded up some of the women’s sale pieces that I’ve been eyeing below. I think my favorite might be this one.
If you’ve never shopped at Johnston & Murphy before, especially for the guys in your life, I would definitely give them a look. My husband doesn’t rave about much when it comes to fashion, but this is one retailer we can both stand behind.
What is your favorite menswear retailer? I’d love to hear from you, and Justin would appreciate the recommendations! 😉
Thanks for stopping by!
