When is the Next Brooks Brothers Sale? - Page 501

I was thinking of buying two plain white shirts just for filler, but F that. If they're going to the inflated MSRP, constant sale model, that 15% kicker just isn't enough incentive for me.

Hell, I'd rather have a broad "spend $150/200, get 40% off" so I could get the 40% on 2 shirts and 2 ties instead of them forcing me to either buy nothing or buy shit I don't really want. (I get it... that's the point of the sale. Force people into buying shit they wouldn't buy otherwise, but it's bullshit.)

Shitty inventory. Shitty discounts. Shitty sale.

 

Good thing I didnt try buying anything this sale!

If I could have gotten MIUSA OCBDs in white, blue, blue stripe, and red stripe, I would have no problem buying 4... But, you know, "quantities are limited."

Dumb question, but can someone post a link to the "good" OCBCs that are MIUSA specifically?  The ones that everyone raves about on here.

Thank you very much.

 

As others have said, it's too bad the sale isn't better.  Although I guess a lot of times the sales on the OCBDs are a "buy 4 for ____" so you're buying several either way.  I'd love to just get one shirt for ~40% off to try!

I just looked at the links again and realized you're right, the sizes are very limited.  Nothing good in my size at all!  I almost jumped on the 2 for 25% off with the 15% kicker, but clearly I won't be doing that now.

If anyone is interested, I bought a couple MIUSA OCBDs in the wrong size for me. I washed them so that I could assess the sizing after shrinkage and unfortunately they are not the right size for me so I re-purchased in the correct size. If you want to buy one or both at 40% off, send me a PM.

I have a blue university stripe and a solid white, Milano fit, 15.0 x 34.

The chukkas are not made by C&J. I bought a pair with the idea that they were, based on the price. But the labeling inside was machine stamped. So I returned them.

I bought a golden fleece suit and a 1818 suit. Golden fleece came out to be about 36% off the retail of $2100, which I think isn't too bad. The 1818 i managed to get at $650, which I think is okay. Sale wasn't what I expected in terms of discounts, but the plus side is, it wasn't very crowded in the Madison flagship store at all.

It is really a head scratcher that just a couple months ago they extended the corporate sale basically due to low numbers. Now the throw this "sale" at us. I never get retail. Oh well.
post #7511 of 8292
Well, the Black Fleece sale is pretty good. Bought the Chelseas for 66% off.
post #7512 of 8292
Yeah, I am probably going to replace some boxers because after volume discount they are like $13 which is darn good. Its just too bad to make a small shirt/pant addition.

The pebble chukkas are made by Alfred Sargent (one of the inside markings would say 87, teh AS last number); they are just as good as C&J peals.

Also the AS peals are great for people with avg to narrow width feet and a high instep/arch

can you elaborate on the 15% kicker? Is this still going?
