When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 162

post #2416 of 6040
Got a postal mail flyer this week for a 20% of MTM event at Brooks Brothers. Anyone have any thoughts or experience with the quality of their MTM product? I was considering getting a blazer made because I love the milano cut but they don't have a blazer available in that cut (and the fitz blazer is a hopsack fabric, whereas I'm looking for a wool more like what is on their 1818 jackets). I recall hearing someone say bad things about their "suiting essentials" program; is that the same thing as MTM or different? Thoughts?

I believe the conventional wisdom is that BB MTM is overpriced.  I don't know if 20% off brings it back in line with reality, but now that GF suits are $1900 off the rack (ridiculously overpriced), I doubt it.

BB has a MTO and a MTM program.  The MTO program lets you pick the cut and fabric and make changes regarding vents and other minor items.  IIRC, it starts around $800 for suiting essentials line quality and goes up from there.

 

As for MTM, there are many cheaper options available that have received more positive feedback on this forum.

I don't find the Saxxon wool to be as soft as even my cheapest cashmere. The trade off is that it is hefty (contrary to the marketing), and I would wager more durable than cashmere. Great for jackets.

Do not get confused with MTM and MTO at brookes alot of forum members mix/mash these types up and the MTO is horrible vs MTM. MTM is the same price as any of the OTR stuff with 20%, but custom fit to your body.

 

On that note MTM based on my experience cant be beat. All your measurements are taken by a speciliaist at the store, then sent off, then you try it on, then if any adjustments are needed the tailor in house will do it.

 

I tell the measurment specilisit what I want and how close of a cut I want and he listens to me.

 

On that note its a great deal wtih 20% the non iron MTM run me about 120 bucks a piece or so and I engrave so 130 total I believe with tax for me.  I cant find a better fit.......

I bought a Saxxon wool sport coat at the end of last summer @ 75% off and its very durable and extremely warm. A wonderful jacket!!

You pay $130 for a basic BB non-iron shirt????? I don't care if it's MTM. Wow. Just wow.

It looks like BBBF's sale items have been reduced in price by 15-20% in the last few days. That being said, as much as I like the Coniston boots, I just don't think I could get a lot of wear out of them. You might be able to and if so then by all means get them. From what I remember BB will raise this recently reduced price back up during a sale. How much they'll raise it I can't say. They might even pull them from the sale. You're looking at a 60% savings right now. That's pretty damn good. I say pounce.

Anyone looking for Chelsea boots, those BBBF ones look great and I'm assuming C&J.

Yeah, seemed to be the same stuff in the sale section as last week. There were some socks I wanted, but I can never justify spending 

$3+ for socks. Think I might end up nabbing a scarf as I only have 1 and fall + winter are coming soon, and this will be my first winter here 

in Colorado.

Kopped. Figured f&f would be 40-50% off and the 25% kicker so same price and had some credit to burn
