Next to baseball, purchasing things online is the great American pastime.
With seemingly no limit to what you can find, it can be overwhelming. And between retailer markups, inflated "sales" and shipping costs, it's difficult to know if you're getting a good deal.
So let us help you. Here's a good deal.
Today, the online marketplace Italic launched a new members-only business, in which you can get all manner of clothing and gear for much cheaper than usual. As a likable person with great taste, you can bypass the wait list and sign up now.
Dive in, and you'll see hundreds of items from the same manufacturers that turn out products for the likes of Prada, Off White, Burberry and Armani. But because those designer names aren't on the goods, and there's no marketing up-charge, you get the same great stuff for much less money. For the $100 per year membership fee, you get the items at cost. So, it won't take long to win back that fee.
Currently, Italic is offering a range of products spanning men's and women's clothing, bags, home goods and accessories. Items like extra-soft cotton tees, Terry pullovers, cozy joggers, cashmere crewneck sweaters, cashmere scarfs and handsome backpacks, duffels and dopp kits, plus a cast-iron Dutch oven for good measure. More categories are in the works, including fitness, outdoors, luggage, knives, kitchenware and even stuff for your pets.
Poke around the site to see the selection for yourself. Whatever you decide on will average about 64% lower in price than the branded equivalent.
Hopefully you're okay with that.
