Good value for $500?

Think you're better off spending the $500 elsewhere or getting the Seiko equivalent of the watch. You could probably find something similar to it for <$100.

What's the semi-annual sale about...

These cats have truly destroyed their pricing power with their constant sales. Who in their right mind would ever pay full price for anything?

I just want one of those damn 40% off coupons for people that haven't shipped there in a while. Was looking to get a suit, but I can get 30% off at the corporate sale (4x year). With this, corporate sales and after Christmas you can get 6 big sales a year. What are they thinking?

sales selections are rather limited, and outside of these fora, you'd be surprised how many people decide to buy clothes on a whim rather than sit tight and wait for the biggest discount possible. That's how I bought my first BB suit, full-price, yet with a not-so perfect fit :( . I now regret that purchase every other time I look in my closet, yet can't get myself to ebay it for pennies on the dollar.

They're nice. The heavy silk, fairly thick interlining, and chalky texture mean that they can be slightly tricky to knot, but a couple tries always gets it right for me. The current ones may be a touch narrower than mine, which might make that a tiny bit easier -- and make them less likely to tie rather large knots.

I don't see that they're made much better than the standard BB ties -- the lining is sewn in there pretty well, there's a slip-stitch, and they have a self-fabric keeper in addition to the label. I think the price difference is just due to the material itself, and possibly the interlining.

If you pull aside the interlining (tricky,  delicate, and a bad idea -- not that it trashed mine, but I suspect it could have), you'll see that the silk is a plain color on the back, which I understand is a sign that they're inkjet printed.

Here's a few of mine (I must really like that square):

Very nice jacket in this pic. Care to offer details? biggrin.gif

Seems to be the new norm, at least with the slightly less-expensive than BB retailers.  Maybe they were feeling the heat (I couldn't see myself ever paying full price at BB, anyway . . . certainly seems overpriced to me).

He has been warned. And a note for all, posting references to your FS items is against forum policy. Do not do that.

Finally showed up, and while that Donegal is a lovely shirt, it was a nightmare for me; the speckling actually made it worse.

 

Still haven't seen the new store in Toronto, but I may try to check it out on Friday when the semi-annual starts.  Either way, I'm still very encouraged by BB's continued expansion up here, and by their commitment to not gouging the bejesus out of us.
