The corporate discount does not stack with sales prices.

it does with Brooks buys, assuming there is no other discount being applied.

Would the shirts be considered Brooks buys?

From what I understand, yes, it is supposed to. During the corporate discount days, I often get the 3 shirts for $225.

Ordered a Milano suit from the site. Satisfied for sure... BUT:

 

whats this on the shoulder part?  I need to get the pants hemmed since they came un-hemmed. Do I just go to a BB and is this free or will I have to pay for tailoring? Also, fit wise... the sleeves are a bit tight, but the body doesn't fully have that taper look to it.

 

)(  <--- like that

 

If I get the sides taken in will the jacket be completely too tight?

 

 

I'd like the sides to fit like that

It's basting thread and should be removed. Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think if you take it to a BB store, you can get basic alterations (including trouser cuffs and jacket sleeves) for free on online purchases. You probably need to get the sleeve buttons attached, too, which I think they will do for free. The other question is something you should ask the tailor since it depends on how the jacket fits you. You don't want it so tight that it's pulling at the button.

If you want to get the jacket taken in, neck roll adjusted, or seat adjusted on the pants, all those will cost you. Getting a waist, pants length, or sleeve length is usually free.

Any experiences with BB tailoring and turnaround? I need something fairly quickly (10 days), and I have read some horror stories (6 weeks).

I don't have a ton of experience (a few suits), but the fastest I have ever received something back is 2 weeks.

I think it depends on the store, the item being tailored, and time of year. I've received stuff in 3-4 days (pants hemming) and over 2 weeks (suit tailoring after a large sale).

I have two BBs in my area. I called the suburban strip mall BB and they are totally backed up and can't guarantee less than two weeks. The downtown BB told me they can have it back to me in a week or less.

What are everyone's thoughts on adding back darts to BB OCBDs? Anyone here done it? Their slim fit shirts generally fit me well but still are a bit too full in the waist (extra slim is too tight in the chest and shoulders). My thinking has always been that darts seem incongruous on an OCBD, especially when it's a must-iron with a box pleat. But now that Kamakura is doing OCBDs with darts, my opinion is swaying. My only remaining hesitation in darting my BB shirts is the box pleat.

I have removed some bulk from the sides on a few, and I would suggest that. Pleat plus darts would be too contradictory for me.

I see what you're saying. But to play devil's advocate, the purpose of pleats is to allow more room and freedom of movement in the upper back/shoulder area, while darts eliminate excess material in the lower back. Both of these things are beneficial to someone with a large drop.

I did that to one of my shirts, it was not my first intention to put on darts. I took the shirt to my tailor to take in the sides (which is what I usually do with my shirts), and then there was a problem with fabric tearing, I don't remember exactly, but  I ended up with darts on that shirt. I was hesitant to wear it at first, but it looks ok to me. It looks good enough for everyday wear, and the fit is fine now. I wouldn't do it on purpose though, go with the sides instead.
