Does anyone know how long the Brooks Brothers corporate sale is going on, or is it already over?  A little late to put some Alden's in the cart, but I need a jacket.

The Brooks 30% corporate sale is today only.

The next one should be in October.

Otherwise, there will be a friends and family sale (25% off) next month. And then a big clearance sale after father's day in June (although there may not be a huge discount on shoes at that sale).

I even tried calling in earlier in the evening to see if they could just back order some items and the customer service rep told me they had no dates in there system, so they can't do anything for me. I really wanted the color 8 ptb!

Thanks again for the tip guys!

My size in the LHS is never in stock. I'm tempted to give the 7B a shot...but 7C is what I'm after. Not sure I feel like loosing out on all the shipping...

That is good to hear.




If you look hard at the picture (this version might not be large enough) it looks as though the shoe in the back has the heel stitching that the other BB Tassels have.  I'll be interested to see if mine have that upon arrival.

The snap is typically equated with the hampton and aberdeen, both in sizing and appearance.

I would bet your suede tassels will have the heel foxing. Keep us posted.

I went through with the sale of the ravello chukkas as I have a pair of dark whiskey chukkas that are well broken in and fill that role in the wardrobe nicely...

Thanks for the chukka suggestions  Alcibiades.  The cigar and ravello versions certainly look great.

picked up a pair of cordovan ptb from BB with 30% off....nice......would be better if tax and shipping didn't add back in $50 but still a good price imo.

post #45653 of 79081
For all the chukka haters I decided to go with some Ravello today

All the talk yesterday on the Cigar PTBs made me reach for mine this morning.

Have a productive day gentlemen.

Very nice, I still didn't have a chance to start Mac method on my new Cigar Atoms.
post #45656 of 79081
Thank you Steel.

That reminds me, I need to get Mac-ing tonight to get a scratch out of these.
post #45657 of 79081
Cigar day for me too. No plain toe though.

Do your cigars have an olive under tone? Looking at these, it seems there's some dark green spots going on.

post #45659 of 79081
Joshua: Yes, I have noticed an olive undertone on these PTBs as well as my LWBs. My cigar Indys and my cigar WT boots don't seem to have it.
