Remember when Black Friday was an overnight shopping extravaganza? I’m sure many of you, like me, have memories of waking up from a turkey-induced nap and rushing off to the mall with your family at midnight to get the best ‘doorbuster’ savings. At some point in the aughts, the sales started creeping earlier and earlier into Thanksgiving day, then came pre-Black Friday sales the week of Thanksgiving, and then came 2021 (well, you know the rest). This year, thanks to supply chain disruptions and endless shipping delays caused by the pandemic, Black Friday at large is starting earlier than ever.
If you were one of those brave Black Friday shoppers of yore, chances are you spent a night or two at Nordstrom. The luxury department store is a bonafide holiday shopping destination—and for good reason. Whether you’re looking for luxe designer gifts, stocking stuffers, home decor treasures, or just restocking your wardrobe, Nordstrom is truly a one-stop shop for everyone on your list, whether it’s an eccentric best friend to the grandfather who has it all.
When is the Nordstrom Black Friday sale?
At Nordstrom, all the shopping shenanigans are kicking off on Nov. 4—exactly three weeks before Thanksgiving they released their first major round of deals—and there are major savings to be had. The sweeping sale averages a 40 percent discount on most items and spans all categories, including men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories, grooming, and home. As if that wasn’t enough, we learned through a press announcement that a second round of deals will be released in a couple of weeks on Nov. 19, followed by a third and final Cyber Monday bonanza Nov. 27-30.
No need to wait though, because this first sale is stacked. (Word to the wise: Nordstrom’s major shopping events, like its Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, tend to sell out quickly, so if you see something you like, act fast.) A host of Men’s Health editors’ favorite brands were included in this first round, including Nike, Alo, The North Face, Rhone, Calvin Klein, and more. Needless to say, we’re pretty pumped.
The sheer volume of discounted items is overwhelming (we’re talking in the thousands), so we went ahead dug through them all and picked our absolute favorites. Whether you’re getting a head start on your holiday list or treating yourself for surviving another long year on earth, it’s time to get shopping!
Just in time for the arrival of winter weather, Nordstrom has a whole sea of jackets on sale. Thank you, shopping gods, for looking out. From the MacDaddy of Levi’s trucker jackets to trendy tracksuits, there are plenty of options to keep you (or your loved ones) warm through the deep freeze.

Really sorry if this is the first you’re hearing the news, but hard pants are a thing again. Haven’t reached for a pair in 18 months? It might be time for a restock.
This sale is a home run across the board, but holy smokes, they really aren’t messing around in the activewear department. Some of Men’s Health’s all-time favorite performance brands like Nike, Rhone, and Alo (all of which rarely go on sale, btw) are deeply discounted. These deals are sure to sell out—you’ll need to act fast.
