Brooks Brothers Calfskin Collection Questions:


Question 1: Are these all made by Allen Edmonds?

Question 2: If yes, which Allen Edmonds model are the penny loafers?
post #10172 of 28719

Am I missing something on the Brooks Brothers Friends and Family sale or are several items more expensive during this sale?  One example are the wool gabardine trousers, which are normally 2 for $230 ($115 per pair), but are now $126 (25% off the $168 price) and no discount for buying two pairs.  Same goes with shirts, which are more expenisve now than if I use the 3 for $220 deal and my corporate 15% membership.  Am I missing something?

At work I wear suits with open shirt and dress it up with a PS.
Sometimes with my Grey and Blue suits I like to wear tan shoes. I also wear matching tan belt.
My question is, is a tan bag too much?
Would a black one look better?

Thanks

OB

I'd say tan bag is fine, a bit safari though..

I came across a black DB trench coat in a thrift yesterday with no label other than the size (40R) and the fabric content/care instructions. No country of origin and no maker's label. It had a blue felt liner that buttoned in instead of zipping. It also had a detachable blue felt collar that buttoned on above the real collar. There were two inside buttons for the db and the belt had additional strapping to hole it in place in the belt loops. All of the buckles on the straps were black but the color was wearing off to show some ivory underneath.

It looked like this, exactly except for the color of the lining and there was no coat hook chain.

674

Honestly, it looked 30 years old if a day but was in very good condition. The thing that jumps out, though, is that the raincoat's main lining was in a Burberry print! Would an older model not have a label? I can't even see where it may have been removed. The whole thing was probably the highest quality piece of rainwear I've ever tried on.

Any opinions?

Probably Burberry. Mighta been removed, or they might not have bothered at that point. A lot of high quality menswear prides itself on staying discrete, burberry very well might have been one of those at one point.

Also, let this be a lesson to you: if it's high quality and you like it, buy it regardless of the brand. Odds are that coat isn't there anymore.

It might even be by a brand which doesn't exist anymore, but if it's good quality and looks good then who cares who made it...

I was able to purchase four sweaters at the normal two-for $499 price x 2 and using discount code 11FRIEND I obtained the 25% discount also - 09FRIEND didn't work for me. I recall reading on the BB site that one can't bundle the corporate and friends & family discounts, but you know it's always worth a go.

You guys are probably right since it's been raining torrents this morning. I drove by on the way to somewhere else but didn't stop back in to check. As good as it looked on me, it seems that somewhere in the past two months, I've become a size 38 and I'm trying to be more selective in my thrifting. It either fits, is extremely flippable or it goes back on the rack.

My question was more informational than anything else, I guess.

Looking for a recommendation for suit hangers. Not looking to win any awards for quality but want something decent and good value. Thanks in advance.
