The two I have are Fitz cut.

I also have seen Fitzgeralds at Nordstroms.

Has anyone found anything good in store at the clearance event? The online stuff doesn't seem to be a good deal, as a lot of it has been sitting in the clearance section for the same price for quite some time.

Picked up a gray herringbone sportcoat (Madison) last spring for $159 in a 42R.  Couldn't believe it was available, you just need to be patient.

On Jan 12th, I placed an order(a BBBF suit) with Standard Shipping on their website, which clearly stated "In stock and ready to ship now," though I received an email informing the order was expected to ship on 26th. Then I called them and had the order changed to Two Business Day shipping. Two business day later, I called them again and they said the items have to be shipped from their stores. If i am not waiting for a new suit with a new color for an interview, i would not be in a hurry. Does anyone know how long will it take for BB to ship items from their store? BTW, the order status has been displaying as "submitted" for days.

Often BB has no warehouse stock on BBBF so it ships from a retail store. So basically. Good luck. Also BF isn't really interview appropriate imo. But thats another issue.

THE website often reports incorrect stock on BBBF merchandise. From what I understand, the BBBF website is maintained separately, & is famous for its problems.

I am very short(5 feet 5.5) so basically only TB or BBBF work for my little stature.

Good to know that, I think I should head to the Bleecker Street instead.

It's fine for business, I interviewed conservative consulting and banking in BBBF and got offers just fine

Specifically, what makes a properly fitted BBBF suit inappropriate for an interview?

Nothing and everything. As usual, generic advice is useless in these situations. It depends on role, level, industry, etc. If someone interviews for a senior client-facing role at my firm, they'd better be dressed in something close to CBD, because that is what our clients will expect to see. If someone interviews for a programming role, I don't really care what they're wearing as long as it can be vaguely described as "clothes".

I find the whole thing rather fashion forward. But to each their own. Also this is coming from someone who owns a black fleece suit.

I think your height being very short is subjective. Not sure why you think you can only wear TB or BBBF though. I've bought suits from other brands that work fine.

I've just been back from Bleecker Street. Mostly, they are out of size 0 and don't have too much items left...Any suggestion for other brands that work for tiny frame?
