Nordstrom Rack Labor Day Weekend Sale: 11 Best Menswear Essentials

Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer (RIP), along with a deluge of Labor Day Weekend sales. And while we don’t have to stow away our 5-inch inseam shorts, swimming trunks, and tank tops just yet, now is the perfect time to get a head start on building your fall wardrobe (at unprecedented markdowns), so you’ll be set once the temps drop. As the kids say: Stay ready, so you don’t have to get ready.

Enter Nordstrom Rack’s “Clear the Racks” sale, which is offering an additional 25% off their clearance stock, which means up to 90% off (!!!) designer shirts, jeans, shoes, and more. And, this being Nordstrom, these aren’t your bottom-of-the-barrel duds. In fact, the majority of their offerings, which will last until Labor Day (September 7), are of-the-moment stylish, and look great all year round. Here are a few of our favorites.
