Since JAB is constantly having heavy duty discounts, sales and deals of the sort described above, I can't help thinking that a fellow who just naively walks in and pays full retail (say $795 for a Signature suit) is something of a chump. I...

Every person is going to need different operations, of course, so your pricing will vary accordingly.

Quote: Originally Posted by southbound35 Thanks for your reply. As I looked around yesterday, I saw for the first time and was impressed by the Trio idea (Jacket with matching pants to be worn as a suit, second pair of coordinating pants for a sportcoat/dress pant look). With most on this board being into higher-end clothing, I doubt many here would go that route. But, I think for the guy who wears a suit to weddings and funerals only and might...
Quote: Originally Posted by Timeless Fashion This is a pretty good deal. I remember a few months ago, you had the buy 1 suit and get 2 free. When I stopped by a store on the weekend, the store was packed with customers and very few SA available. I simply checked to see if they had any suits in my size, which typically they don't and they didn't. But it seems like you were definitely moving some inventory. We do have a smaller inventory in...

The Signature Platinum line is available only in very select stores. (I was with the company for 6 months before I ever even saw one.) Your local store manager should be able to source some, though, and the same deal would apply. Anything that is ordered during a...
Quote: Originally Posted by pandemic Ok I admit i was just trolling, but seriously whats up with you guys and not selling any slim fitting (athletic cut) suits We tend to stay very traditional in our cuts. And, really, we don't have much of a demand for them, honestly. My store is very near a Big Ten university and we do have some athletic guys come in that often don't fit a traditional nested suit. I usually show them the Joseph line...

Our 42 suits will have a 6" drop, but we have 3 lines of Suit Separates (Business Express, Traveler, and Signature) that would work...you can pair your jacket with any size pant to get the fit you need.
Quote: Originally Posted by otc No I mean...tell me more seems like it would be awfuly convenient to be able to drop a suit off for steaming/pressing at any time. Do other retailers do this (BB?) I don't know of any other retailers that do this. It's a free service that we offer to all of our Corporate Card holders.
Speaking of letting customers know about something better coming up - right now were are BOGO on Suits, Sportcoats, and Blazers and taking an additional $100 off any purchase of $499 or more. Starting next Wednesday, though, we are changing it up a bit. When you buy a suit at regular price you will get another suit of equal or lesser price for free AND a sportcoat or blazer (equal or lesser price) for free. We are extending the $100 off $499 promotion,...
