Price includes US shipping. First quality. Brooks Brothers Country Club Egyptian Cotton Long Sleeve Button Down Shirt. Fabric woven in Italy. Retail $168. Small / Regular measures 15-35, P2P 21.75. $35>>>$32
Price includes US shipping. Still available at the time I closed the listing. Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Tan Sport Coat. Buttons are not applied and button holes and not been made. Full set of Mother of Pearl buttons are included. No build sheet or content label but I think this is a Silk / Linen blend. It is a very nubby fabric. There is a spot (probably a water spot, shown in last picture) about the size of a quarter on one sleeve. I found a couple of other...
I agree with most of what NativeTxn wrote but would offer the following clarification:What I mean is that there is a price point which reaches a satisfactory level of quality, beyond which the increased value of the item is no longer proportionate to the increase in price. In other words (in my opinion) a $2000 suit is not twice as good as a $1000 suit. You can change those numbers for individual taste. I am sure that others would substitute $300/$600 or $4000/$2000. ...
Price includes US shipping. Use measurements to predict fit. Spectacular Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Nubby Silk Dinner Jacket. Two button, Double vent, Mother of Pearl Buttons. Full canvas construction. This was built as formal wear, but IMO it can also be used as a sport coat because of the nubby fabric and the two-button construction. This jacket is just insanely cool. There are a few very faint small smudges on it, guaranteed to come out with dry cleaning. ...
Price includes US shipping. You can't beat this deal. Short Sleeve Knee Length Brooks Brothers Cotton Pajamas. All are size Small. Tops measure approximately P2P 23, L 28.

You can buy NWT Brooks Brothers 1818 suits on B&S for around $300. These retail at about $1000 but can be found for less on sale. The made in USA BB or HF inhabit a sweet spot IMO. Spending more money can get a better suit but with greatly diminishing returns. And I agree with one of the posters above. A properly fitting $400 department store suit looks better than an ill-fitting $4000 suit.
This is correct. On some models at least, AS is using a single-row nail pattern which previously signified C&J. And I concur that 87 is a Sargent last.Referring to another post, Sargent is using that crescent of embossed dots across the sole.
^ I have experimented with removing stains on ties and decided that it is not worth the trouble. YMMV.
Damn! I am getting returns for fit at about 5X my usual rate. On items which I am providing measurements.
Prices include US shipping with tracking. These shoes are first quality (unless otherwise noted) but have a mark in the insole which prevents return to retailer. No returns. All photos are clickable thumbnails. I am happy to ship to other countries. The shipped weight of a pair of shoes will almost always range from 3 to 5 pounds. Go to the USPS website, enter your country and the weight of the package for a quote. That will give you a real close, if not exact,...
