You deserve it, gentlemen. You deserve to treat yo self today all through to Monday, for that tough ass project you led your team to conquering. Or for being the awesome boyfriend you (well, maybe not always) have been. For the tiresome shackles of masculinism – manning up through all the crap you have to deal with. 

If you still don’t know what we’re driving at, Black Friday is here. After that comes round 2 known as Cyber Monday. We’ve got a roundup of the best deals you can occupy yourself with at work, and let us show you how you can do it (the shopping part, not the art of slanting away your monitor).

Ain’t nobody got the time to queue at a physical store, so get that credit card ready and boot up the fastest WiFi connection, gents.



ASOS

The UK site launched 20% off everything, which was similar to what we had last year. Stay tuned to this line as we continue to update (and as you shop their outlet store, which is going at up to 70% off).

With all that said, are Black Friday deals really cheaper? Much as all the discounts may be tempting, not every deal is a real catch. Be prudent whilst you shop, gents – online and offline. Sometimes, what you see isn’t always the truth.

BBC suggests that other time periods (the upcoming Christmas, Boxing Day, or whatever seasonal exclusives on your credit cards and club affiliations) may feature deals at even greater value, so maybe it’s a better idea to exercise restraint where it matters and keep an eye out for those.
