    I'd go with brown,black suede just doesn't look right.Very nice looking pair of shoes though.

    OK, I don't wanna digress but let me ask something: Is there a pair of black suede shoes that you may recommended to this black-suede-hater guy which may change his mind?

    I know under any circumstances I will prefer the brown over the black but I don't wanna add antoher pair of brown suedes. What I am looking for is a sufficient level of interest on my part in a pair of black suede shoes. When I see that level, it would not matter whether the brown model of the very same shoes is better.

    PS. I checked the photos of C&J and EG shoes from the shoe pictorial index. There were just one or two black suede shoes, and I did not like them at all.

    I grabbed a blue candy stripe and a houndstooth. No monograms, no french cuffs.

    I also picked up a few blue OCBDs, and a few blue and white stripe ones. I really like the cut of them.

    Can any of you comment on how reliable (for lack of a better word) BB is as far as backordered items? I'm tempted to order some OCBD's, but many are out of stock with a reorder date of Jan. 16th. Hell, I may just order them given the current discounts and hope for the best.

    I've had bad luck, but others have done better. I know that's not that helpful, but...

    I've also had bad luck with this, but I figured it was just me.

    I've had couple of orders that were pushed further and further but I received them eventually.BF OCBDs are made in NC so I am sure they will get them in stock one way or another.
    I am surprised that solids are still $112 and stripe shirts are $75.

    Thanks for the comments. Think I'll take my chances on the shirts.

    $75 - 15% for the next 38 minutes. Plus BB sent me a $20 off coupon in the mail. [​IMG]

    I'm not reading the site incorrectly, am I? The additional 15% online is good tonight until 11:59 pm EST?

    But those stripes are the wrong colors, only camel and gray. [​IMG]

    Got some good stuff at an outlet in MA - They had some amazing Black Fleece Stuff (Sweaters, Flannel suits, and Chesterfields) there too - Thank the guy responsible for this holiday sale that none of it fit too well. The Reddish Orange Chesterfields were a must have for any Dandy. I think they were $2700 originally but It was marked down to $1250 or something like that and then 50% off and another 15% off of that if you were in the store before 1pm today.
