You just missed out on BlackBook's 30% off sale on B&R, Tumi, etc.
They were still at pre-loonie nosedive prices too.
Very disappointing. I was expecting Thom Browne designed items to be much more modern.
Also a heads up that they don't have any of the old Milano fit OCBDs in stock. If you haven't heard these have been discontinued and replaced with a new oxford which costs $75 more.
Anywhere else for good quality OCBDs locally? Spier and Mackay never have slim fits in stock in basic colors. It's a shame because a decent, inexpensive OCBD could really be a cornerstone for their business. Especially with BB discontinuing theirs.
I don't think that's too unreasonable to start. Several years ago (Jan '08?) I bought at MTM there during the Samuelsohn sale, which came in around $1100. I was young(er) and naive at the time, and would do a couple of things a little differently now, but I recall it was the entry-level fabric range. I'm not sure that as a menswear retailer RJ is competing entirely on price though.
Thanks for the suggestion I'll check it out. From what I remember the material on the Red Fleece is quite a bit thinner (correct me if I'm wrong), leading me to prefer the MiUSA OCBD.
Was at the Robert Jones sidewalk sale on my lunch break...Picked up a brown and navy Bigi shantung, a yellow Barbera knit, and a pair of black argyle socks. Now that I'm back in the office, regret not picking up one of the Kiton ties. Maybe next time.
Also, if you've been looking at the BB thread, the extra 20% discount on Black Fleece has started. The Black Fleece dress shirt priced at $215 CDN works out to $68.80. Sizes are all mixed up at the RBC location, so looking for one can be a pain.
I almost bought what was probably that same shantung tie. It was really nice and unique. But then I thought, do I really need to spend about $100 after tax on another tie? I'm still torn...
I am considering one of those BF shirts, if I can find one with long enough arms! Has anyone who's a 15.5x35 ever had one that fits well?
Nomad marked down all FW 2015 stuff by 70% (although Filson for whatever reason is only marked down by 50%, price adjustment maybe?) ...
