PSA: BB Corporate Discount taking 28% to 38% off online suits/jackets YMMV - Page 2

I think I realized what's going on:

The 15% discount is stacking with the "2 for $XXX" price even if you order a single item. For example, the Fitzgerald Blazer is 2 for $800. Using the 15% card makes a single blazer 85% x $400 = $340.

I don't think it used to stack like this so I wonder when they changed it and if the change is permanent.

Would you guys say this is pretty much the best solid navy blazer at this price point?

I recently bought a Hickey blazer off Gilt, but might return it and get this instead. I've been trying to holdout for a RLBL, but the prices on their blazers are insane.

It's decent for the price. I'd prefer the BB blazer to the hickey.

$340 (before taxes and s&h) for a Southwick fully canvassed blazer seems like a great deal. FYI it's partially lined.

Sounds good, going to purchase one. I was hesitant b/c there are some negative reviews of the blazer on the BB website.

Fit on Fitzgerald seems decent, from the suits I have tried. Hopefully the blazer is the same.

I cannot select a state/country upon checkout (online) when using my temporary corp membership. How do i bypass this?

I'm not sure what your problem is. It auto fills in the shipping and billing addresses when I put in my corporate membership. Have you tried making an account for the BB website and checking out while logged in?

try clearing your cookies and doing it again. I had the same issue when I first did it but after shutting down the browser and going back in, it worked the second time.

Done, 15% of my tux stuff. Still not enough to negate my shipping fees to Oz . lol

Nice! Shipping to Oz must be $$$. I hope you got a whole bunch of stuff to make the shipping worthwhile.

The BB website is bonkers. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Safari on a mac is pretty much a nogo. Firefox works okay for me... if the site is working.

And then there is their shopping cart system. Today, found The One True Suit I've Always Wanted and is In My Size in the clearance section. Added it to my cart, click click click, etc. Wanted to think about the purchase for a few minutes. Closed browser. Three minutes later, went back to site. TOTSIAWAIIMS still in shopping cart but now shows RED with quantity ZERO. Remove from shopping cart and sigh heavily. Console self by browsing B & S. Make several purchases. Check back on BB website several times and TOTSIAWAIIMS is still out of stock. Eat dinner and drink some beers. Check just one more time. TOTSIAWAIIMS magically reappears as in-stock. Click Click Click. Now it is mine.

BB seriously needs to upgrade their infrastructure. This whole internet commerce thing has been pretty much figured out. If they want to market themselves as a world class clothing company they need to be world class with the selling stuff bit. Or they need to get bought by Sears.

I know I risk the wrath of SF for having peculiar tastes, but I am totally stoked about the Madison Donegal 1818. It's brown. It's tweed. The fabric is from the UK and it's sewn together in Italy, in a classic American style. I can't wait.

Just worked for me using the Border's corporate discount card on the Fitz blazer.
