Full disclosure: using the summer sales to score some high-end items that you wouldn't normally allow yourself doesn't actually count as having 'earned' the £100 or whatever you save on the full price. 

That said, if you are in the market for some new threads, sale time is an awesome opportunity to try out a more luxurious brand or fashion-forward style than you'd usually feel comfortable with. Or maybe you always roll premium and any saving is just extra money in your pockets, in which case good for you. 

Either way, we've pulled together a bunch of sweet investment items from designers like Barbour, Joyrich, Soulland and Penfield, that are now available for the price of a wardrobe staple. What are you waiting for?
