In Canada, suits we have Samuelsohn, shirts we have S & M. I do not see value on BB.

Every time I pass by the mannequin's on bay, I always think damn they are dressed well. Then I remember BB prices biggrin.gif

I/ve only bought AE shoes and then edit (sold them) Most of what they carry is for 50 year old folks. Sorry I said it, but not really sorry

You're not wrong, they are a good source for a lot of things though. I've bought socks, belts, clothes brush, collar stays, that sort of stuff there. I really like their MTM non iron dress shirts, and the overcoat I bought is the same as any other overcoat I would have bought anywhere else.

But I probably wouldn't buy suits or sport coats there.

The BB threefer shirt sale is always good value imo. Dependable stuff. Not Etro level patterns etc but staple wise? Great. *unless ya hate the no-iron-req. treatment thing, given that's like 90% of their stock now.

Eh I have a bunch of BB pieces. They have many different fits that are quite slim and young looking. If you go Madison or something I agree it is quite blocky and old looking.

As I stated, BB 3 shirts for 229 is only for their normal 1 ply shirts. I would never buy that because of the see through effect. 2 ply shirts are nice but price is not attractive. I really like non iron shirts (hope spier can get that in near future), but does not want to pay $150 for mtm shirts

May I ask the price of the overcoat? Want one but BB overcoats are close to 1k maybe more due to weak loonies

Not sure about BB but for me when it comes to overcoats, Club Monaco is my first place to look. Great designs, materials and decent prices with several sales annually.

Sure, regular price was $1200, $900 with the 25% discount. My reasons for buying it from them are mainly that I'm 6'5" and built like an nfl player, so finding things that fit can sometimes be difficult. It was actually cheaper than my other option which was to have one made, so for me not so bad because that would have been much more money, and I'm very happy with the fit.

I did look around quite a bit before I bought it though and agree with other posters, there are several other places that have great looking overcoats for less than BB. As the other poster said club monaco looked good to me as well. Suit supply has some good looking ones although I don't know how the quality is and I've heard some people saying they are a little short. Harry Rosen had several options, albeit expensive ones, I found a Canali there that I really liked but at $2100 was the same price as having one made.

None of my single ply shirts from BB are see-through.
