by Barron Cuadro  |  in

Amazon Prime Early Access is October 11th and 12th, 2022. I dug through all their deals to find you the best menswear clothing, shoes, accessories, watches, and more. Hope this saves you some time and money!

What is Prime Early Access?

According to Amazon, “Prime Early Access is a new Prime member-exclusive event offering early holiday deals.” Basically, you can get your holiday shopping (for yourself, or for others) started early.

You have to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of Prime Early Access, so if you aren’t, first sign up for Amazon Prime here.

Amazon Prime
$139 / year

Exclusive members-only shopping deals, ridiculously fast Two-Day shipping / Same-Day delivery (where available), plus a TON of additional benefits: free movies, shows, games, books, photo storage, grocery, and more!



  1. The prices you see are most likely the original price—click through to see the Prime Early Access pricing!
  2. Things move quickly because lots of people are buying stuff, so if something is out of stock or back to original pricing, you may be out of luck (but worth checking back again before the end of 10/12 is over, just in case).

Watches: My Favorites On Early Access

There are plenty of watches available and on special sale during this Amazon event. These are my favorites I’ve come across. Plenty of casual sport watches and a few dressier (yet affordable) options.

First, my two stand-out finds:

Seiko SUR375 Stainless Steel and Titanium Dress Watch
$330.00 $189.61
If you only have ONE watch to get you through all occasions, you could do much worse than the Seiko SUR375. Overall clean and minimal silhouette, dark dial, stick indices, stainless steel case and titanium bracelet, which makes it super lightweight. You could wear this with jeans and a T-shirt, you could wear it with a suit, and any conceivable outfit in between.

Here are the rest of my watch picks!

The Seiko 5 SRPG29 is a sportier and more casual alternative to the SUR375. Another dressy alternative is the Tissot Tradition Small Second… really handsome looking automatic watch with a leather strap.

The Bulova Pilot Watch is another great choice, somewhat similar to the military hack watch I mentioned above.

The Seiko SNK80* series is a great basic, reliable, affordable automatic that comes in four different colors. The G-Shock is a fun digital watch perfect for your more active days when you’re really dressed down (or when you simply want to switch it up).

Clothing Deals During Prime Early Access

There’s a lot of clothing on sale, but not too many individual pieces I’d recommend.

The Goodthreads oxfords are pretty good for the price. Not investment-worthy quality in terms of cloth or construction, but for a shirt you don’t want to baby, and aren’t too worried about beating up, it’s great.

Standouts for me are the bomber from PAIGE and the Billy Reid camel colored coat. Since these are premium brands, I can’t promise your size will be in stock, but it’s always worth clicking through and checking, just in case.

The Levi’s denim jacket is a no-brainer! I’d get one in a medium wash, and if you love it (or if you already own one), get one in a darker wash.

Same goes for the Levi’s 541. If you like a straight leg denim with a bit of taper at the ankle, I find this fits well. I always size down. And the Amazon Essentials Athletic Fit denim is a similar model (I believe you need your usual size in this one).

Another option is the Levi’s 502, which is slightly slimmer, but still a straight tapered model. There are also plenty of Dockers chinos available. I prefer the straight fit, but if you are a skinnier guy, they also have slim fits available if you click through.

Shoes I Found On The Prime Access Sale

Covered the spectrum with this selection. Lots to choose from but I handpicked the best ones I cound find.

Hear me out, re: the Merrell Moabs. If you already have your work boot style covered, exploring something utilitarian like this could be kinda fun. Plus, you can actually go on the trails with them. The Moabs in charcoal are what I thought looked the most appealing, but they have other colorways as well.

Also love the black / brown combo with the Allen Edmonds Alpha sneakers. And the canvas sneakers from Seavees or the AE Burke slip-ons are perfect for your summer months or winter getaways to warmer locales.

I did find a pair of Eastland work boots that are worth a gander, if you don’t already have a pair of rugged boots for fall / winter. I also found the Greats Royale Knits, which are awesome in warmer weather.

Sunglasses To Finish Off Your Outfit

Two solid Ray-Ban options! An updated Wayfarer shape and the classic Clubmaster (my personal favorite silhouette).

I also found these classic aviator style Ray-Bans, and my favorite Persol model (that never fit me quite right, but I still love them).

Grooming Tools On Early Access

Amazon has a number of electric shavers and grooming kits available during Early Access. The ones that stood out to me were the kit from Braun and the classic three-head wet and dry shaver from Norelco.

I also included this drying lotion from Mario Badescu (perfect for the rogue adult pimple that graces your face), the GeniusX electric toothbrush, the Crest Whitestrips that I find work the best, and a great BaByliss hairdryer for styling your ‘do.

Cool STuff That Isn’t Style-Related

Not necessarily menswear, but things I’ve owned / used for a while, or that are currently on my list to buy during the Early Access sale 🙂

This linen sheet set / duvet cover has been on my bed since early summer. I wash them and immediately throw them back on, and I still don’t want to take them out of the rotation, even though it’s fall. They’re breathable and get softer with each wash.

I have an older version of this Bose speaker and I always take it with me when I travel. The Bialetti Moka makes a great espresso on the stovetop. And the Eufy cordless handheld vac looks extremely handy when you don’t want to whip out a huge vacuum for a couple dust bunnies (I’m picking one up this week).

And of course I had to add a bunch of tech stuff, like the Beats Studio3 headphones which I’ve used for years, and the Apple AirPods Pro that never leaves my pocket. The 2nd Gen Apple AirPods are also available, if you don’t care about the pro-level features like noise cancellation.

Looking for more?

I’ll continue to post more Prime Early Access deals as I find them. Make sure to keep this tab open in case I find anything else.
