    Our online sometimes has a mind of its online but YES the sale should reflect online.

    Will the briefcases be on discount during the semi-annual sale?

    If so, does anyone have any thoughts on the quality of their bags besides the SAB models? I'm considering one of these:

    Buffalo Classic Briefcase: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...lor=Brown&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    Buffalo Soft Briefcase: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat..._Id=1590961&Parent_Id=228&default_color=Brown

    Single Gusset Classic Briefcase: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...lor=BROWN&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    For what it's worth, I have carried a men's briefcase from Coach for several years now that I have been disappointed in (but it was a gift).

    Just a heads up, BB has a lot of two for deals. But those deals go away for the sale. So you essentially get 30% off full price, which funny enough is actually a worse deal than their regular two for deals.

    Absolutely right. The best deals at BB are stacking the corporate incentive sale (30% off) with the Brooks Buys (i.e. 3 shirts for $210). That's how I always pick up slacks, shirts, sweaters and anything else I'm buying more than one of.

    The additional 15-20% off is usually only for December 26th.

    I'd stay away from any of the non-SAB cases. They are vastly inferior in quality, construction, and materials. Handled and inspected many of them before going w/ a custom case myself.

    Cue all the sport coats on clearance at 50-60% the past few weeks being re-priced at 30% off full price.

    Go 1 - 2 pages back in this thread and you will have your answer. IIRC, it was this week.

    If I just wanted to buy some basics like the Madison dress trousers should I be jumping on the 30% off today or wait for the clearance event next week?

    What is the diff. b/t BB sportscoats and blazers?

    The 30% off ends up only being about 15-20% after tax and shipping. Not anything great. Not worth $800 a suit.

    That depends on how you intend to use it. The Cambridge cut is a pretty trendy cut with a shorter length and narrow lapels. If you intend to wear it to work, you might want to pick the Regent or Fitzgerald cuts, which are a more traditional option. I've got the 2 button Regent blazer and like it for the most part.
