Crazy deal!
What is the pricing right now in the Canadian versus US stores?
Is the Canadian still 10-15% more costly?

BB always excludes Peal and cordovan, I will be shocked if either is included this time.

Wow sounds like a pretty good sale ~$500 for 1818 suit, I might have to pick up a Milano solid navy suit, how's the stock on these in their stores? What are the chances of them having 36-38r to try on if I visited one of there flagship stores, Bev Hills ect.

Someone at AAAC posted a list they got from their SA that has of variable discounts, from 20-40% off on different categories. Based past years' Dec 26 sale, I would expect this list to be accurate as BB usually has differing percentage sales for different classes of items (with a bonus before noon on 12/26):

Shirts - 4 or more 40% off, 2 for 25% off
Suits - 30% off
Blazers - 30% off
Sport coats - 30% off
Dress trousers - 30% off
Advantage chinos - 25% off
Novelty pants - 40% off
Men's knits - 50% off
Overcoats & rainwear - 30% off
Casual outerwear - 40% off
Men's sweaters - 50% off
Cashmere - 25% off
Ties - 25% off each, 2 or more 40% off
Socks - 3 pairs 25% off, 6 or more 40% off
Underwear - 3 pairs 25% off, 6 or more 40% off
Men's fragrances - 25% off
Leather accessories - 25% off
MEN'S SHOES 25% OFF

Probably accurate as it looks identical to last year's discounts.

Last year staples were available to set aside the week before and were still available when the sale went live on the website.  No clue as to this year's inventory.

Yes it is. I wrote to BB about the price difference and they wrote me a polite response explaining that it's due to customs/duties paid on the products.

It's a reasonable explanation, but not an ideal situation for the consumer since we pay a VAT on top of the higher base prices.

But aren't the $598 shoes usually for C&J or AS?

Sorry, I forgot to exclude Cordovans. They are excluded as well, however as far as I am concerned Peals will be on sale.

While this list does look more realistic, the 40+15 is what my mgmt told me, and that's what our SAs pre-selling at.
The company did change some of the sales comparing to last year. We didn't have the shirt sale this year, and we introduced Black Friday sale at retail locations.

There are also different labour laws in Canada, that enforce the company to pay higher fees on payroll. However, the movement is to lower prices in Canada to bring it closer to US prices.

Not always.  Loake has started appearing in the Peal line over the last year or so and priced at the same $598 as AS and C&J.  People who got the Loake made lightweight wingtip a year ago during the sales almost uniformly found them inferior to the normal BB Peal quality and returned them.  Those Loake shoes had the same exposed stitching in the sole that I see in the pictures for the shoes you linked.  I'm not sure if the shoes you linked are made by Loake, but I would investigate further before purchasing.

I can confirm that the kicker is 15%. So for shoes:

1. (MSRP-25%) = reduced cost

2. Reduced Cost - 15% = Lowest Price Possible at Retail

What's the easiest way to identify C&J shoes? What's the heel pattern we should be looking for?

Edit: All three shoes have the same nail pattern. Doesn't a nail in the middle of the heel indicate C&J Construction?

When it comes to C&J made for BB, I look for channelled soles.
