The Short Answer: 19 Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021 sales
This post features a very long list of Cyber Monday and Black Friday 2021 sales. Here is a short list of featured Cyber Monday deals that I’m particularly excited about from brands with which I have had a personal, positive experience:
- Bonobos is one of my favorite menswear brands. Bonobos offers a whopping 35% off (almost) everything during its Cyber Monday sale. This is even better than Bonobos’ 30% off sitewide during its Black Friday 2021 sale from November 22-28. (Have a look inside a Bonobos Guide Shop to learn more about the brand, and see why they are a terrific option for shirt jackets for men.)
- Huckberry is one of the best online retailers of elevated, stylish clothing for men. Huckberry’s massive Cyber Monday 2021 sale features deals of up to 40% off more than 600 products from their house labels like Flint and Tinder and a wide variety of innovative brands like Marine Layer, Holden, Seavees, Danner, Gitman Vintage, Topo Designs and more. This is an extension of Huckberry’s Black Friday sale, which also saw discounts of up to 40% off.

- Todd Snyder continues its 25% Off sitewide across its fabulous selection of elevated menswear during its Cyber Monday 2021 sale. They had already offered 25% sitewide during its Black Friday 2021 sale using code BlackFriday25 starting Sunday November 21. Look inside Todd Snyder’s New York City Flagship store, and discover why I think Todd Snyder is one of the best alternatives to J. Crew for men.
- Allbirds, which didn’t even have a Black Friday sale, has a terrific Cyber Monday sale that sees excellent deals across its rarely-discounted lineup of sustainably-produced merino wool shoes for men and women.

- Outerknown, which is famous for its soft, cozy blanket shirts for men (I love mine), takes 30% off sitewide plus nab free shipping with code FREESHIP during their Cyber Monday sale. Outerknown took 30% off sitewide (excludes 3rd party products) from November 25th through November 28th during its Black Friday sale. (No code needed.) If you have never tried Outerknown, I highly encourage you to check them out.

Nab up to 30% off Vessi’s shoes during their Cyber Monday 2021 sale, plus get a $25 gift certificate for every $110 spent. This is an extension of Vessi’s Black Friday 2021 sale.

Score 30% off sitewide with CYBER30 from this born-in-Brooklyn brand founded in 2007 by Ryan Babenzien and Jon Buscemi, which makes “a better sneaker for less.” (For more leather sneakers options check out Modern Fellows’ guide to leather sneakers for men.)

Earlier, Rhone’s Black Friday sale saw 30% off orders of $300 or more; 25% off $250; or 20% off of $150 sitewide from this destination for exceptional athleisure, activewear, basics and commuter button down shirts constructed from technical fabrics.

Introduction: Keeping track of the Best Black Friday and Cyber Week sales for men
Welcome to Cyberweek.
The pandemic accelerated a trend towards an entire Cyber-Week of sales that stretches from the weekend before Thanksgiving through the Monday after. In 2021, 79% of the brands that Modern Fellows surveyed had launched a Black Friday sale or pre-sale by the Monday before Thanksgiving.
Throughout the year, I also track the best online clothing sales for men, where you can have a look at evergreen discounts and other seasonal sales.
When is Cyberweek 2022?
It’s perhaps more accurate to talk about Cyberweek sales rather than Black Friday and Cyber Monday, since many brands are now offering discounts from the Monday before Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday.
Cyberweek 2022 is from Monday, November 21 through Monday, November 28.
In fact, some brands are likely to offer Black Friday deals throughout the month of November, though the sales really start to pick up as Cyberweek begins.
When is Black Friday 2022?
Black Friday 2022 is Friday, November 25, 2022.
When is Cyber Monday 2022?
Cyber Monday is the Monday after Thanksgiving in the United States. Cyber Monday 2022 is Monday, November 28, 2022.
Is Cyber Monday different than Black Friday?
While shoppers can snag discounts throughout Cyberweek, 35% of clothing retailers offered better deals on Cyber Monday than on Black Friday, according to a survey by Modern Fellows. However, selection may be more limited on sought-after items.

How Black Friday and holiday sales are unfolding in 2021
Black Friday 2021 deals and sales are continuing to look a bit different from pre-pandemic times.
Supply chain, shipping and labor issues continue to roil holiday shopping
Between extreme bottlenecks at ports, ongoing supply chain disruptions and semiconductor shortages, higher input costs, and an extremely tight labor market, expect delays and challenges finding what you want during the holiday season on everything from apparel to electronics.
Black Friday 2021 sales started early
As with last year, Black Friday 2021 has started early. Nordstrom, Walmart and others launched Black Friday 2021 deals and discounts the first week in November. Dozens of other e-commerce brands soon followed suit.
This tracks what happened during Black Friday 2020.
Amazon kicked off the 2020 holiday shopping season very early with its long-delayed Amazon Prime Day extravaganza. Amazon held Prime Day 2020 on October 13-14, 2020 featuring deep discounts on Amazon Prime Fashion brands for men and women as well as electronics and more.
Many other major retailers followed suit, announcing deep, Black Friday-quality discounts beginning in October or early November 2020:
- Clothing retailers including Madewell and Lands End launched Black Friday deals in October 2020.
- Walmart stretched out Black Friday sales over three separate events in November 2020. Walmart’s first Black Friday event took place starting at 7PM on November 4 online at Walmart.com, with more sales and deals rolling out online and in store in November 7.
- Target began its Black Friday deals early, “stretching out the savings.” In a a statement, Target noted that, “Let’s face it: Historically, deal hunting and holiday shopping can mean crowded events, and this isn’t a year for crowds.”
- Home Depot announced that it would start its holiday sales in October in an effort to “reinvent” Black Friday and remove anxiety and hassle for customers worried about the Coronavirus.
Smaller, innovative fashion startups and small businesses followed their leads, advertising their lowest prices of the year and jumping on “early Black Friday” sales earlier in November.
Expect fewer doorbusters and in-store only deals
Despite some loosening up of pandemic restrictions, I still can’t imagine stores will be offering limited-quantity doorbusters and in-store only deals that would require shoppers to line up and crowd into stores.
Instead, I would expect many more online-only deals, some of which may be time-limited to days or hours, a-la-Amazon’s Goldbox Daily Deals.
Prediction: Many stores will continue to be closed on Thanksgiving
In 2020, many big-box retailers closed their stores on Thanksgiving Day, reversing a trend that had come to see many employees having to work instead of enjoying dinner with their families. Target, Walmart, Best Buy and Dicks Sporting Goods are among the retailers who closed their stores on Thanksgiving 2020.
It will be interesting to see how many retailers close again on Thanksgiving 2021.
Recommendation: If you see a good deal, grab it
Stores may not be in a position to offer the same deep discounts during Black Friday 2021 as in prior years given supply chain shortages, higher input costs and rising demand.
My advice? If you see a good deal on something you actually want, buy it before it’s gone.
Support small businesses during Black Friday and Small Business Saturday 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has hit many small businesses in the fashion industry hard, and companies began rolling out pretty spectacular discounts just to stay afloat.
“Retailers will be desperate to get rid of seven months of leftover merchandise in two months,” Burt Flickinger III, founder of Strategic Resource Group, told Newsday in October 2020.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, I was grateful for the chance to interview a number of entrepreneurs about the struggles they faced during COVID-19. Many noted they were surviving thanks to the loyalty of their customers.
Small businesses’ struggles aren’t over however, as supply chain constraints, labor shortages and the specter of the delta variant throw new sand into their gears.
I’ve done my best to prioritize innovative, small and independent direct-to-consumer brands that I think are worth supporting this holiday season.
What are the Origins and History of Black Friday?
There are different explanations for how the Friday after Thanksgiving came to be called “Black Friday.”
- Employers used the term Black Friday in the 1950s in reference to the large percentage of employees who used a sick day to complete a four-day weekend.
- Another explanation is that the Police Department in Philadelphia used the phrase in the 1950s and 1960s about the insane traffic the day generated.
- The most common explanation is that the “Black” in Black Friday is a reference to the role in the day in enabling retailers to turn a profit thanks to holiday demand.
