Can't wait for the 3D knit cashmere sweater to go 80% off

I wonder if their rice bowl, chop sticks, and chop sticks holder will be marked down even more or if they sold it yet.

Edit:  I just realized I'm wearing a bb ocbd and chinos as I write this, haha

 

Couldn't agree more. I picked up 4 OCBD's earlier this year when they launched the new, no pocket version and had a sale. I like them a lot but other than those, BB hasn't tempted me much. There is one item that I've considered every time I see a 40% sale.

 

Cashmere 2 button SC:

I tried it on a few years ago. The material is gorgeous.

I also have an awesome cream loose-weave cotton roll neck raglan sleeve sweater from RF that's perfect for cool spring and fall evenings. My wife doesn't bother looking at regular BB women's stuff, but owns a dozen or so RF items. I don't find it overpriced compared to J.Crew. Generally speaking, it's fairly easy to grab on sale, too, so to me, I find it an excellent quality:price ratio.

 

Ugh, the RF crush my junk with the 2" rise.

I saw something a few weeks back advertising 25% corporate sale and was hoping it wasn't true. The good news is, they seem to always ofter gift cards at a discount so you should be able to do even better than 30% during corporate sales.

Or...maybe they actually workout at the gym and or play sports and have a man's body. Do not assume that men that can't wear RF are "fat" or like their clothes to fit them like a woman's garment.

I'm neither fat, nor do I work out...most would describe me as skinny, however when I tried on a pair of RF trousers in my usual Milano size I couldn't even get the trousers all the way up, never mind zipping them up and closing the button. It was ridiculous. And I'm someone who thinks that some of the Milano fit trousers could be slightly slimmer. I don't understand the RF trouser fit at all.

The rise is the big difference.

why not size up? Or maybe this style isn't for you?

It's not rocket science......

Ties are on sale 3 for $119. Anyone know what the sale price is for Canada?
post #8008 of 8281

Cdn price on the three ties is $159.  Never really saw anyone in the Flatiron shop, which explains why it closed.  It had a nice layout, but just wasn't drawing the kind of customer that would shop there.  Wish BB would set up a Canadian version of their site, with the same free shipping benefits as the US one.  I passed on items at the recent 25% sale, waiting for the corporate sale, and now I find out its the same discount.  Sigh.

It's not that the style is the problem, it's the fit. If the same company has different styles in a size 32 for example, they should all still fit someone who wears a 32. What I don't get is why I can't even get the RF size 32 trousers up my skinny thighs, while the Milano trousers have a somewhat full thigh, in my opinion.
