Yesterday, December 25th, was a very important day. And no, I’m definitely not talking about Christmas — I’m referring to the start of Mr Porter’s semi-annual sale. On a normal day, most of the stuff is so expensive that it’s safer to just click through the interminable selection rather than actually buy anything (unless you really like eating Top Ramen).

But twice a year, the site knocks up to 50% off retail prices, and sometimes, prices get low enough that I can actually afford something. I finally know what Andy Williams is talking about when he sings “It’s the most wonderful time of the year.”

There’s a lot to shop today, including items that were everywhere this season and were never really expected to go on sale. Future wore a version of this Raf Simons Oversized Distressed Sweater (now $1,701) in a music video the same day it went on sale — that’s gotta be a first.

There’s a lot that would just make solid additions to any wardrobe, like this Wooyoungmi Contrast-Trimmed Wool-Blend Bomber Jacket (now $520). With over 40 pages to browse, I’ve taken the liberty of combing through and selecting some of my favorites. The pleasure truly was all mine.
