When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 375

post #5611 of 6158
My BB sales associate is very good. I usually email her a week before visiting the store to tell her what I'm looking for and give her merchandise # from the website to see if they have them in stock. If they do not have the item in stock, she'll order it for me and tell me when to come in. The other day, I emailed her and told her I had the 40% off coupon and needed a charcoal suit in Regent fit. She'll go through the stores inventory of Regent fit suits in my size and hold them for me and order whatever they do not have and pull a couple others that she thinks I might like. She's done this several times. She held 10 suits for me during the last corporate sale day and I ended up buying 3. She's fantastic.

FWIW, mine is terrific - goes above and beyond consistently and is remarkably tolerant of my "if you give an inch, I'll take a mile" style of bargaining.  Of course, I'm in the store often enough and drop enough money that everyone there (including the manager) knows me on a first-name basis . . .

On Canal St.? I agree, they are very good! I normally stay at the Windsor Court when visiting and will drop by BB to browse when the wife is doing her thing!

I visit so I can go to Commanders Palace for the $.25 cent martini lunch. biggrin.gif There are 3 direct flights a day from DC and my wife loves NO. I love to eat and drink but its become much more expensive these days but it good to see it coming back strong. Cochon and Jaques Imos are my favorite places!

If you like the lunch at Commanders you absolutely should try a long slow lunch at Galatoire's one Friday afternoon. Get there around 1:00 and plan to stay until 4:00. Just sit back and take it all in-- like nowhere else on earth. I'd tell you to dress the part, but this is Styleforum, so you've got that covered.

No, but you won't mind.

Just picked up two staple navy and charcoal suits during the last corporate sale... Is there any way to pick up an extra pair of trousers for each suit? (Fitzgerald fit, just the basic navy and charcoal fabric)

Probably MTM program, but it would be upcharged and pricy.

Picked up my BB-Alden cordovan cap toes today. I took the E width since D were too tight on the sides even before I laced them up.

 

Quality/workmanship is not at the same level as my Peal & Co for sure, but the price certainly reflects this since these are about half as much.

 

The stitching was not all the way in the groove on the soles, but it doesn't matter since I've already decided to put topy on.

1. Are clearance items returnable? I finally found the answer on their site, and it appears to be "yes".

2. Does anyone know where I can find measurements for the Red Fleece extra slim fit sport shirts?

Tried this jacket on today. Houndstooth is a nice pattern but the jacket is quite thick for linen which makes it more suitable for spring/fall wear instead of summer. I presume it'd be hard to get wrinkles due to the thickness.
