When is Black Friday 2021?
Black Friday always takes place on the last Friday in November, the day after American Thanksgiving. This year, Black Friday will commence on the 26th of November.
What is Black Friday?
As Black Friday marks the end of the last major holiday before Christmas, it became known in the US as the beginning of retail’s most profitable season. Many US retailers and brands decided to capitalise on this and began celebrating annually by offering huge sales and discounts on their products. Today, most retailers and stores are expected to offer great deals & bargains on Black Friday, not only in America, but in many other countries around the world.
Are some brands offering early Black Friday deals?
It’s become quite common for brands and stores to offer early Black Friday deals. As most brands and stores haven’t announced their Black Friday deals just yet, we can only guess which ones will offer earlier deals. So far, in terms of men’s clothing, Todd Snyder has confirmed early Black Friday deals for this year which will start November 21.
Black Friday FAQS
Why is it called Black Friday?
The phrase ‘Black Friday’ became popular in the 1980s and originally referred to retailers operating at a loss from January to November but then becoming extremely profitable from the day after Thanksgiving as people would start shopping for the holiday season. The reason it was called ‘Black’ Friday is it was common for accountants to mark negative amounts in red ink and positive amounts in black ink.
What is Cyber Monday?
Cyber Monday refers to the first Monday after US Thanksgiving and takes place on the 29th of November this year.
As Black Friday deals were traditionally only available in-store, in 2005, ‘Cyber Monday’ was created as the online equivalent. However, obviously, as shopping online has become more common over the years, Black Friday sales began to take place online as well as in-store.
Cyber Monday still exists though, and it’s not uncommon for stores to run one big sale from Black Friday all the way through to Cyber Monday. Some stores even offer bigger discounts on Cyber Monday but be warned: this is because most of their stock has been depleted by Black Friday sales.
How do I prepare for Black Friday?
The first thing you should do is set a strict budget for yourself. Decide whether you’re shopping for just yourself or if you want to snag some cheap gifts for the upcoming holiday season, and accordingly give yourself a firm but fair budget of how much you can spend during Black Friday.
The second is to have a look at online retailers before Black Friday and pick out items you’re interested in or that you’d like to buy. Then bookmark those pages so you can easily and quickly find them again when Black Friday deals start. We also recommend bookmarking this page and checking it regularly as we’ll be updating the page with each brand’s Black Friday deals ahead of Black Friday.

AETHER offered 25% off their range last year from Black Friday through to Cyber Monday and will hopefully have a similar deal in 2021.
Suitsupply did Black Friday slightly differently than other online retailers last year. As the brand doesn’t typically do sales (like ever) they set up an online ‘outlet’ which was filled with heavily discounted Suitsupply products. The only catch was that you needed a code to gain access to the site (last year it was: 2020). The outlet site is currently down, so we’re not sure if Suitsupply’s Black Friday sale will work the same way this year, but we’ll be the first to let you know… and to give you that special access code, if so!
Frescobol Carioca had 30% off across all of their collections last year during Black Friday through to the end of Cyber Monday and should have a similar sale this year.
