When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 140

post #2086 of 6239

If you are a 40, and a Black Fleece fan, check out the wool/Cashmere Thom Browne Sc I just price dropped on the BS.

Nice coat.

Classified: Thom Browne Wool/Cashmere Sport Coat

Black Fleece sale starts tomorrow, 25-40% off depending on the item. I know suits and sports coats are going to be 40% off, non-cordovan shoes are 25% off. The polo I was looking at was 25% off. That's all I know.

I would note that the Cambridge blazer does have horn/plastic buttons, so depending on your taste it's either more casual or less garish than a traditional alternative.

For what it's worth, I own the hopsack Fitz blazer.  It's lighter weight, which is a relief in the summer.

If you are going to espouse a minority view, you should qualify it as such. Most would agree that blazer is too trendy for most business environments. If you know the general rules and feel it is fine for you and your workplace, that's fine. But noobs reading your post will think it's fine for most of corporate America, which is not the case.

I wish BF had more shoe options, especially suede dress shoes in lighter colors.

 

Depending on how much off I get, I'll be looking to get a pair of the following:

I dunno wtf is up w/ their email promos, but I didn't get the BBBF email on the last Flash sale until there were only like 12 hours left... that really rubbed me the wrong way

I've noticed that there are more shoes in store than online. For example they only show the black C&J longwings online, but I saw walnut, black pebbled leather, and the old Alden cordovans (no size 9 though ffffuuuu.gif). Wasn't paying attention to suede though, sorry.

Black Fleece sale has started! Happy hunting, fellas.

Too bad they don't have more BF shoes to choose from. The C&J longwings look good, but I just picked up a black pair of C&J Westbourne from the Barneys sale

A slight detour, perhaps, but wasn't the original plan with BF to have a new, hip designer each year to design the collection?  Have they had anyone do that since Thom Browne?

However, when we saw the demand and curiosity resulting from what Thom Browne created as our designer, we decided to continue our partnership.
