Christmas Buying Guide: 3 must-buys on Cyber Monday

The following is part of's annual Christmas Buying Guide

If you're like us you probably didn't buy much last week on Black Friday, when few sales featured anything notable.

That isn't the case today, Cyber Monday, with three must-buys from Jos. A. Bank, Lord & Taylor and Macy's. Do note all three have free shipping-and-handling.

3. Black Watch tartan cashmere scarf

Tartan shouldn't be just for the holidays. It can take you through the cold weather season. A cashmere scarf is especially nice when traveling on a plane. This scarf from Jos. A. Bank ($29.99; available here) is pretty basic, but they last even with near-daily usage. 

2. Glen Urquhart plaid sport jacket

This sport jacket is from Black Brown 1826, an in-house brand of department store Lord & Taylor. The quality is decent, all things considered. Sure, it's fused. Sure, Glen plaid cloth has no provenance. But for the price ($103.25; available here), it's a good value.

1. Navy Chesterfield coat with velvet collar

A proper Chesterfield coat is generally pretty difficult to find on this side of the Atlantic. Not this year. Macy's has a Lauren Ralph Lauren 100% wool Chesterfield coat in navy, complete with a black velvet collar. It may not be the real Ralph Lauren, but this is about as good as it gets for the price ($199.99; available here).
