You can just remove the logo. Unless they're different than the other cedar products, the brass plate can just be unscrewed.

This is the best price for most cedar products.

Which hanger did you get? The assist also goes to sns23, who first mentioned taking advantage of a non-clothing item.
PS: Your need to add in the snark reflects your lack of class. A simple thank you would have sufficed.

The fact that he was a friend of yours would trouble me far more than the Joseph A. Banks part. And I hate JAB,

On a serious note, doesn't Jos a Bank often sell Allen Edmonds?

Yes. I was in there recently looking at topcoats (which all sucked). They had Allen Edmonds, Cole Haan, and Johnston & Murphy shoes. Obviously they're not subject to their "70% off" sales, though.

Thanks for the heads up. Ordered myself a bunch of hangers. Would've gotten shoe trees too but just ordered some the other week from AE cloud.gif

They are never included in any of the sales. You get the 20% corporate discount, but that's it on AE. On super rare occasion there will be sales on particular models, but typically not very good.

My snarkiness toward JAB comes from working there through college and having to deal with the constantly changing "never before have we run this sale"

This came up recently with a friend of mine. I thanked him for the info and let him know they have buy three for the price of one sales quite often.

Funny you mention that. I went to DSW to buy a pair of their $15 shoe trees. They no longer stock any besides the "Size 7-9", so I decided to go next door to JAB. Just wanted to buy 1 pair. Well, today was the Buy 1 Get 2 Free sale day. I didn't need three pairs but I'm sure I'll make use of them someday.

Reevolving, didn't you do this exact same thread with Wolverine 1000 Mile boots instead of JAB suits about a week ago?

Epic backfiring thread.
post #29 of 55

A few years ago, after my interest in clothes started, my really nice aunt and uncle got me a Men's Wearhouse gift card "because you like clothes now".

 

I graciously thanked them for the thought, at least they were sort of headed in the right direction. I then tried to sell the $50 gift card for $40. No takers.

 

Whenever people excitedly tell me to look into places like MW, JAB, Burlington Coat Factory, etc, I just tell them one of two things, "Thanks, but that place is not really my style" or "Thanks, but I'm already eyeing a [insert clothing item] elsewhere".

For anyone who's trying to take advantage of the cheap shoe trees / hangars / whatever and paying with paypal: Check your receipt.

 

Paypal shows a charge almost double what the JAB checkout page showed. Apparently their payment system is of a similar quality to their suits.
