25% off of regular prices with your corporate membership. Opinions needed: I've never tried the Regent fit trousers, but I am considering ordering some online. I'm also going to ask for alterations and get them plain front & cuffed. Do you think it's a bad idea to order 2 pair of trousers without having tried them on?

If you don't like them you can simply return them and you'll just be out shipping costs.

Nice workhorse pants. I have been wearing them almost daily with 1/4-5 rotation. Do not expect any fancy fabrics. Not too slim, just right. I suggest hemming in your local tailor but if not possible I bought them as sold with 32 ready hems, and they were true to size.

do you think they'll let me return them if I have them altered? I'd be buying them straight from BB with alterations (an option on their site) but it would seem like something they wouldn't let me return. I'll try to go to the store and see if they have any I can try on before ordering. You can select the "Alterations" tab and choose a cuff as long as you give your inseam: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatP...=&sectionsize=

I ordered an OCBD during the recent F&F sale, and I'd potentially like to order a few more depending on how I like the trial one I ordered. Unfortunately, it's backordered until this weekend. This sale will be over by the time my order from the previous sale is delivered!

which shirt did you order? do they not have any in the store for you to look at? I really like BB OCBDs. They sold me on paying a little bit more for a shirt than I used to pay because the quality was really worth it, especially when you get 3 for $150.

My experience has always been that they'll ring out the cordovan shoes for you if you ask nicely. It may help if you're purchasing other things at the same time, as I always have, but I don't know that for sure. I have heard some SA's will reject it; however, it seems it's one of those "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again" situations.

This is a great time to pick up standards like chinos, undershirts if you like the BB kind, and things that never go on sale.... and it's the cheapest way to get Alden (non-seconds, non-B&S cordovans if you can get it pushed through!

This sale is piddling. I could get 50% off by just taking one of their employees out to dinner and then using their employee discount before getting them fired. That way I'm getting double your pitiful savings AND banging a cute former salesperson. /thread

I've done this too many times
There are no more salespeople worth sleeping with.

Sometimes the sales associates will overlook this restriction.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
