    I don't know about that, I received an order that was placed trough a store but shipped from the warehouse, didn't take nearly as long. The order placed through website is still not processed. I ordered a few pairs of shoes and have a feeling they may not process or say that they are not in stock, their inventory management is a joke.

    This is nothing new - Brooks delivery is painfully slow. I once waited until the following July to get some white OCBDs that were backordered from the Dec 26 sale.

    Most recently, I ordered a pair of cordovans during the corporate sale on November 16.
    After a week (the order was still in my account as "submitted") I emailed for a status update.
    Still no response for another week.
    So I email them a second time.
    2 days later I get a response saying the shoes will ship soon.
    The next day they arrive on my doorstep - 17 days after ordering.
    And to top it all off, 2 days after delivery they responded to my 2nd email saying that the shoes were delivered so why was I complaining? :crazy:

    I thought after the one that just passed (36.25%) that the next best time was any of the corporate shopping days (30%).


    Sleven placed an order for me on 26 December and I received shipping confirmation a few days later. I think I was set to receive today, but have not checked tracking and I was only at work for half a day today. Could have arrived after I left.

    I ordered a suit and some shirts on Dec. 25th (early around 5 AM PST) and received a shipping confirmation on Dec. 28th; scheduled to be delivered on Jan. 4th.

    Hoping the ESF shirts are of decent quality. The last three non-iron ESF shirts I bought had horrible collars...the placket did not line up with the buttons accurately, causing one end of the collar to be longer than the other.

    Happy New Year, gentlemen!

    The picture below is my newly arrive 1818 suit. BB (or Lardini) seems to have done a very poor sewing job on the armhole. You can see a few dents around the seam. The left arm on the other hand has no such problem and drapes properly. Should I go for an exchange? My another question is this why the color of this navy solid is much darker than regular navy blue. Is it possible the SA in store accidentally gets me a black suit? Thanks!

    The left side on the other hand seems to be okay

    BB's navy blue is very dark and almost black in appearance.

    It does look a little odd. That is one of those things that would bother me as long as I had the suit.

    I ordered from the website on December 26, got shipping confirmation email on the 27th and most of it on arrived on the 28th. Regular shipping.

    One item was out of stock so is coming later.

    I'm in New York City (close to 346 Madison, not that that helps).

    I believe BB uses true navy, which very closely resembles black (especially from far away). I got a navy blazer from BB and it really did look black. It irks me and I would like if BB offered a more modern navy.

    Correct. BB navy may look black, especially indoors, but put it beside something which is black and you can see it is blue. I will add that you should look at the lining. The black suits have a black lining. Dark blue lining comes with navy.

    Thank you for the tips. I gave them a call, and they agree to arrange an exchange. I hope that one has no such QC problem.

    I bought four shirts on Dec. 26, but there is no shipping confirmation yet. I'm not in a hurry, so it is okay for me personally. But this might be a problem for other SF members.

    It happens sometimes. I tried on a Samuelsohn suit that had a similar problem (missed QC somehow).

    I put it aside with my black coat, and the color is indeed lighter. Thanks for the tips!
