BB Friends and Family Sale 25% off... should I wait?

post #1 of 85
Thread Starter 
I just got a card in the mail for Brooks Brothers' Friends and Family event, May 4-9, 25% off all merchandise (excluding cordovan shoes).

I am a first-year law student, and need to get a solid navy and/or charcoal suit for OCI this fall. I feel like I should I wait for the semi-annual sale in June, but my only concern is that during the bigger sale, I will have a hard time getting solid color Fitzgeralds. Whenever I am in the store, all they ever have are stripes and herringbones. Any thoughts?

Is there a code for this or just show up at the store? Need me some Milano pants, badly.

Pretty sure you can just show up and mention the sale to a Sales Associate

If there is something you need in a popular style or size, get it at 25% off. For "nice, but not need" items, wait till June when it could be 40% off.

Yep, I've done this many times at different BB stores.

Anyone know if Fitzgerald sport coats in 38S or Milano pants in 31 will still be in stock in June?

If there's a particular size that you want during the sale in June but your local Brooks store is out of it, will they order it for you or are you just out of luck?

I'm also trying to decide whether to pick up a Fitzgerald suit next week or wait for the semi-annual sale in June.

This past winter when outerwear was 40% off, the duffle coat I wanted was actually removed from the website/sold out. Called the 1800 number, they found a store that had my size in stock. The store shipped it to my address free of charge.

So yes, I imagine they can help you out

You can always order online too.

Have found something at the Brothers I want... trouble is, they only have 5 of them in stock anywhere in the country in my size.

If I buy something today, will they honor the F&F price if I take it in next week?

usually all of their sales are not applicable on previous purchases but you can always try.


However they can and will hold it for you. Just ask, I can usually just call my SA and ask him to hold the stuff until I come in on the weekend.

Yeah, my local SA will do that for me. Problem is, I don't really know an SA in New Orleans...
