    There was a promotion last Fall where there was 25% off for all purchases if you donated or something about a charity. It resulted in the buy 2 for $1699 working out to around $1275. So about $637 per suit. I don't believe that corporate discounts can apply for those

    The Corp discount does apply to the Brooks Buys'.

    Google results suggest that the Brooks Buys prices have varied substantially over the past several years. It seems that $1699 for two 1818 suits is about the most expensive deal offered. Maybe there is a chance they will reduce that somewhat for the corp sale? Maybe wishful thinking. I do know that as recently as Christmas that the Brooks Buys price for 3 dress shirts was something like $179 (compared to $229 currently), so it does seem that the current Brooks Buys prices are higher than what's possible.

    On another note, I was planning on picking up half a dozen new dress shirts during the corp sale, but the fact that BB doesn't sell all-cotton (must iron) dress shirts (except in white) has me thinking twice. They do sell all-cotton button downs, but I'm under the impression that these are inappropriate for wearing with a suit so that doesn't work for me. What to do...

    Here's a search from Brooks' web site that shows quite a few must-iron shirts that aren't buttondowns. Most are not white.

    Sorry, I should have been more specific. I need ESF. That reduces my choices to one spread collar (white) and two forward point collars (blue and white). So I guess technically I have two color choices if I'm willing to go forward point collar (which I'm not).

    They're running 3 for $179 March 7-10. I don't particularly like that it's all non-iron as I can't have them taken in and MTM is absurdly expensive.

    Anybody ordered M2M shirts ? My SA told me it's around $200 each before the 20% discount/trunk show taking place now. I prefer the non-iron fabric myself but just wished their shirts have split yoke, side gusset and MOP buttons.

    They removed the dress twill cotton trousers I have been eyeing, before the clearance sale. So I was disappointed :(

    Not everything in the sale section was on clearance. But some of it was marked way down.

    Actually, you might check out the Own Make jacket--they run slim.

    It's a Corporate Member Sale, so it's just the double corporate discount, no other kicker.

    March 20th is the confirmed date...

    I'm interested in the EG Inverness during the corporate discount.

    Can anyone that wears an 1818 Madison or regent suit in 40/41/42/44L do me a favor?

    Can you measure the distance from the top of the collar to the top button(assuming this is a 2 button)?I've attached an image of what I mean, but it is done when lying flat. I think it's done properly while buttoned while lain flat.

    By the way, does anyone here own regents in a 41/42L?

    I received an email today telling me that dress shirts are 3 for $179. Am I correct that this is a better deal than what will be offered during the corporate sale on the 20th?

    Today: $179 - 15% corporate discount = 152.15
    Corp Sale: $229 - 30% corporate discount = 160.30

    ...or maybe the brooks buys price for the corp sale will be reduced from $229 for 3 dress shirts? e.g., $179 - 30% corp discount = $125.30
