right. If I remember correctly, the 40% off is right after christmas
yep. then after that ends, clearance starts 50% off. Staples go back to regular price ie navy solid suits white shirts etc. All the seasonal stuff ie sweaters go on further discount. After like a couple weeks of clearance it goes to 60%.
for non iron shirts 2/109 is cheapest time to get basics, 2x a year, one is before thanksgiving (going on right now) and the other one i think is in march?
Usually before Christmas BB has a daily sale with different categories of items (i.e. sweaters, pants, accessories, etc) on sale each day. Last year it was Dec 6-12. As mentioned above, they also have a 40% off sale on Dec 26, with an extra 15% off if you shop the morning of the 26th.
Any word on whether the daily 40% off deals will be happening again this year?
Is the sales generally stackable with their corporate membership program?
Most BB sales do not permit stacking the corporate membership discount on top of the sale price. However, the current "2 shirts for $109" sale does permit stacking - which knocks the $109 price down by 15%, or $16.35, to $92.65 (plus sales tax or shipping charges, if applicable). I say this based on my own actual purchase experience at Brooks Brothers yesterday afternoon.
I vaguely recall hearing that last year's pre-Thanksgiving BB sale permitted stacking the corporate discount, too. So maybe it's not just an occasional clueless salesperson letting one get away with something, but rather an actual company policy that for the annual pre-Thanksgiving shirt sale, the corporate membership discount can be applied.
Oh, and I think Brooks is having some sort of sale on shirts ($30, and non-irons only), in store, on Friday morning until maybe 10am. Not good enough to get me to go shopping on Black Friday, but that's just me. And no, the 15% corporate membership discount cannot be stacked on top of this sale price.
BB sale appears live and in stores. Looks like it does not include cordovan and they also removed their EG shoes. There is a pair of the cordovan boots from C&J, but it pales in comparison to the Lindrick frenzy.
