Can anyone speak to the quality of these briefcases? I'm looking for something more formal than Filson, Saddleback, et al around the $400-$600 (not ready for SAB yet) price point and like the look of their stuff. Thanks.
The inventory on the website doesn't update in real time. A lot of what appears in stock at first blush isn't actually in stock, but you only discover this after you enter your cc info and go through the bulk of the checkout process. It's annoying.
Can one apply the 15% off corporate membership discount to the "everyday value" deals? (I.e., the 3 shirts for $219, 2 gabardines for $240, etc.)
I logged in through my corporate membership page yesterday and it wouldn't apply the additional discount. For some reason, I recall the discount being applicable in the past.
Ordered it, and have to say that it's quite wide. I have a rather narrow foot, but wear a 12 D in every AE lace-up I have. I got these in an 11.5 D, and while the length was ok, they were very wide and had some significant heel slippage. I'd reorder an 11.5 or 12 B, but didn't care for the styling as much in person.
I'm an 11 drop and found a good tailor who does a nice job recutting the pants with Canali and Corneliani OTR suits. I think the key is finding a competent tailor - if you can do that, you should be good to go OTR.
You will have to do a recut, though, so make sure they don't just take the waist in, or the pants will look ridiculous.
