Just wanted to post a review here in support of Juan, the BB SA who posted here a few pages back.  I asked him to purchase a few pairs of chinos and a pair of shell LHS for me during the 30% corporate event recently and he performed spectacularly.  Although the shoes were not readily available at his store, he took the time to search around for a pair and had them shipped to me.  The chinos came significantly faster than expected and, once found, the shoes did as well, and with shipping waived at that!  I fully encourage anyone without an SA at this time to look to Juan for any purchases in the near future.  Thanks Juan!

Based on prior experience, for one looking to purchase two suits (Regent or Fitz 1818, depending on fit, in grey and blue pin) and 8+ no iron shirts, would it be better to wait for the SA sale or purchase the suits on "suit day" and shirts on "shirt day?"

If it is the same Juan at Millenia, I have worked with him in person.

Always a pleasure, the kind of SA that actually loves what he does. He should post more often smile.gif

Any idea if there is going to be anything in the next week or so? My wife's birthday is on the 11th, and I have my eye on something, but it would be sweeter if there was a 20% off sale items or something.

I know Black Fleece goes on sale on the 10th. Don't know about mainline BB.

I had 3 made in all-cotton and they were made in the US, but the non-iron fabric would have been made abroad (Malaysia I believe).

Maybe I don't understand your post correctly, but these are non-iron "all cotton" made in Malaysia. From what I understand the non-iron is just a treatment that is done to the fabric. A shirt can still be Supima cotton or all cotton woven in the US, but still be made in Malaysia. Supima cotton has nothing to do with where the shirt is manufactured just where the fabric is.

End of season sale, so seasonal stuff will go to 40% off and other stuff will go to 25%.

The non-iron is a treatment done to the cotton, and until recently, there were shirts with non-iron fabric, all-cotton fabric, and supima cotton fabric (leaving out the luxury fabrics for the sake of clarity). BB has recently begun switching to supima cotton as the only cotton used, so the only two options are supima and non-iron supima. Before this change, the supima cotton was only used in the oxford cloth shirts (to my knowledge) which were always made in the US (NC I think). Now that they are using supima for everything, you can get a shirt that is made in malaysia, but with supima cotton non-iron treated. But the oxford cloth shirts that are not non-iron are still made in the US. I think having their "flagship" shirt made in the US is a point of pride for them, much like their ties.

Don't disagree with anything you have said here and think it's great if that is what they are doing (moving to only Supima cotton).

Need your guys advice: I'm a pharmaceutical rep and am in need of new work clothes. I wear slacks and a tie everyday, suits need not apply. Last year I went cheap and bought Van Heuesen but after only a year the shirts and pants are done. This time I'm not gonna buy cheap and instead getting BB. I have 2 questions:
1) hopefully you can see in the pic but my shirts have developed bad deodorant stains, don't want this to happen on BB shirts so do I need to change my brand of deodorant( which is a solid) or instead wear an under t-shirt? Currently I don't wear an undershirt cause its hot here in SoCal.
2) these Van Heuesen are non-iron shirts but i still iron them, should I get BB non-iron or the supima cotton and just iron them? I don't mind ironing but have read the supima is difficult to iron.

Please advise guys. I'm about to drop quite a bit of money so I don't wanna make the wrong decision.

You wanna stay away from deodorant that contains aluminum. I recommend Tom's (available at Target). Haven't had a problem with pit stains since.

I work in the inland empire and it gets super hot there. I usually wear a light v-neck undershirt, as lighter color shirts can be see through and if you're not wearing a jacket, it might be something to consider … BB's undershirts are good. When it's hot, I'll wear a BB linen button down or the Brookscool OCBD.

I hope this helps!

Cheers!
