    yeah they came with little scratches all over them. nothing a horsebrush couldn't buff out though. At the end, I just wanted my shoe bags. Had it not been for the missing shoes, I would have just kept them. In terms of fit, its very comfortable. I sized down a half size from my normal size. Will you keep yours?

    Possibly. I just need to figure out whether the scratches are 'normal', and do go away, as you said, after buffing.

    I also ordered an additional pair 9D just in case; that one goes back unless someone here wants it at my cost price.

    Not sure if this has been answered yet but does anyone know if the Corporate Membership will stack with this deal. Looking at the non-iron shirts.

    It never does.

    I went to the flagship today and literally everything I asked them for they told me to order online. The markdowns weren't that great either.

    When people talk about BB discounts and say "+15%," they are talking about the one-day discount for opening a credit card, right? I did that yesterday* and made out pretty well. However, it seems to me that I will never qualify for that 15% again unless I can talk friends, family, or strangers into signing up for credit cards on my shopping days. Correct? Or is there something I'm not understanding here?

    Thanks

    *Picked up in Pittsburgh:
    -2 suits
    -tux + accessories
    -shirts

    I got mine today - can't say that I'm over the moon. Battered shoe box; I had two shoe bags unlike yours. [​IMG]

    I think these shoes have been tried on already, as well. Plus there are small - minor scratches.

    As you say minor, but these are $1000 shoes.

    To make sure I'm not overreacting, did you see these small marks on your shoes as well?

    You're overreacting. Brush them hard and see how they come out.

    2+ years ago BB would take an extra 15% off their prices on the first morning of the sale. They no longer do this.

    They did this the day after Christmas last year (12/26/2010) - I made a purchase. Don't know if they did it the day after Father's Day this year, I didn't need anything. Typically those day-after sales were a great way to stock up on undershirts and the like - stuff you didn't have to worry whether or not it would be in stock.

    Assuming they weren't clearance items, the SA should have done this for you, with free shipping...

    What is the conventional wisdom on the Fitzgerald blazer?

    If it fits, is it worth $383 pre-tax?

    That's worth it in my book.

    AFAIK there is not. But a corporate card or corporate membership usually stacks with sales discounts, conceivably giving you an additional -15% to -20% off the price.

    i dont have a corporate card, how can i obtain one quickly? [​IMG]

    What universe do you live in? I've never been able to successfully combine the corporate discount with any other sale, save the "2 for $X" deals.

    Indeed, if you use the 15% corporate membership discount, that is all you get. In other words, the normal sales discount is better. I haven't tried applying for a credit or store card to see if that works though ....
