My response - give it more than 42 minutes.

Probably Loake.Still a good maker though.

I have one C&J and one Loake for BB. Construction wise, they're both very solid. But the C&J leather is more substantive in my opinion.

Does anyone know what the highest discount things in the sales section would get to? I'm thinking about picking a few things up, and they are at 40~50%, but if they might get lower after Thanksgiving, I wouldn't mind waiting.

I would say so. I got 2 sports shirts for $45.50 each and one dress shirt for $52.00.

If you wait that long, a lot of the normal sizing might be gone. I've always noticed that the items that are 70% off tend to be XXXL shirts, size 46 waist pants, or other sizes that no one wears.

Hm you think so? In the past I've gotten the 3/$x shirts and made returns (not for MSRP, but for $x/3), though I agree this is a bit different. I was hoping I'd get 1.5*price/2, though I suppose I could always return without a receipt for store credit...

I would have thought that if you returned one of the 3/$x shirts they would charge you full MSRP minus discount for each of the two remaining shirts. Guess I am wrong about that.

Tried but they wouldn't let me apply the corp discount, and the Customer Service department closed 15 minutes early last night...so, I bought a Suit Supply suit instead.  Way to lose business, BB!

On here, the consensus is that 1) J Crew shirts are plastic button mediocrities, except for the upgraded Thomas Masons, which approach a high enough price point that other brands may be better options, and 2) Red Fleece is BB's pathetic attempt to eat into J Crew's ownership of non-greybearded shopper (i.e. the younger demo).

As far as your original question, there possibly may be no difference at all between them; for all we know, they may be outsourced to the same factory in China.

So what are your suggestions for sports shirts under $50? Uniglo? CT?

For a couple dollars more you could have had regular line BB.

I'm pretty sure regular BB ESF has gone into red fleece.

I recently picked up two ESF dress shirts and a two red fleece sports shirts. The red fleece runs slimmer than the ESF.

The nice thing about ESF is that they still make an OCBD in the fit but with the original polo collar. Nice to have a well fitting shirt with a grown up collar that won't look ridiculous in a year. All of the red fleece shirts have those child collars.
