When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 234

post #3496 of 6402
I've had mixed experiences with BB. But on the subject of product knowledge, the onus is on management (corporate or retail) to ensure SAs know about their products. I usually won't blame the SA if their PK has gaps.

Apparently this Black Fleece scarf I was looking at was recalled. Gucci went after them for infringement, so these scarves and a bunch of accessories had to be recalled and I guess they're not allowed to sell them. In cases like this, what happens to the scarves? Do they get burned? Sealed in a vault somewhere? Because I'd still kind of like one.

He was so vehement about the ridiculous length I felt like I really couldn't trust his assessment of fit at all and just left.
End rant
I have a relatively large seat and ideally would fit in a 39S, the 38 was ok in shoulders but not only too small in waist, too tight in seat/thighs. Initially figured Fitzgerald cut was best based on this forum and description, and that I'd like flat front, but questioning this because of fit issues in seat/thighs. A 39s would probably work but they don't make it. 40 was a little big in body, tiny bit big in shoulders, waist was too big but obviously fixable there. Jacket extended slightly beyond the tip of my thumb.
-Is there another slim fit that is a little looser in the seat? Seems like there is not, but I am quite new to this so just checking.
-Am I better off getting a slightly boxy 40s that is too long in the jacket and tailoring it for waist suppression / trying to shorten coat or just abandoning for another brand?
-Might the flatiron store provide any better service?
Apologies for such novice questions, appreciate the help.

The only time I was in the flatiron store, I think this is the one on Broadway you are referring to, most of the SAs were college students. Not to say that they are all like that and it could have just been that one day. Of all of the BB stores I have been to I think the one in financial district will probably be the next one I would head to. The Rockefeller store is probably around the same size as the Lincoln triangle one or smaller.

What is your chest to waist drop? I'm not sure how the 38 could be tight in the waist if the slim fit is the appropriate fit for you. I am only a 5 drop (38 chest, 33 true waist) and still needed to get the waist taken in on my pants and jacket on my Fitzgerald cotton suit.

And don't forget, the kicker applies to clearance items as well.

You can get this staple Fitz suit in 38R for $425 (after the kicker).

Just to confirm, that's not sarcasm, right?

2nd, is it worth it to order a pair of shoes today, knowing it's not my size, then swap it out when they get my size in?  Penalties? My size is not in stock baldy%5B1%5D.gif


Sounds like a decent plan to me.

Had 2 shirts, a blazer, and a suit in the cart but decided to sit on it for reason of potential buyer remorse.

As I slowly came to my senses, I also started removing items off the cart.

As I type, I have zero item left in the cart. smile.gif

Imho, the only real good values for this sale are 1) the cordovan cap toe boots; and 2) the suits on clearance that the kicker applies to (see my last post). The price point on the suit is close to SF pricing.

Kinda dissapointed in my experience today: Went to the store in tysons, va to order a pair of peal & co. shoes. would have ordered them online but wanted to avoid the $20 shipping hit. checked online beforehand to see if my size was there and it was. Took a printout. The SA said that they didn't have them on hand but could order them. After looking on this computer for a few minutes he said that corporate "wasn't answering" cause it was so busy. I don't think I saw him pick up the phone! Tried to talk me into some AE captoes that they did have. Later he muttered something about the Peal shoes being sold out. Well, what is it!?

Didn't really need a new pair of dress shoes but thought I'd treat myself to a post xmas gift to myself.

It's a decent value. Just remember that the Milano has a shorter jacket and may require sizing up.

Fixed. I'm a 41 in Madison, 42 in Fitz, 43 in Milano/Cambridge. Ditto pants. The Milano pant is shockingly snug through the hips & thighs. Size up and then get the waist tucked. If you can, go to a store and try 'em on. And sit down a few times.

Hehee...Thanks. colgate.gif

To be honest, unless you are planning to shop in store or spending $$$$$, the shipping cost pretty much nullifies the 15% kicker. ffffuuuu.gifcensored.gif
