    Are there any truly outstanding deals in this sale?

    The prices on shirts and pants do not appear to be particularly compelling. Prices seemed better during the Friends & Family sale a little while back.

    Prices on shirts are pretty good. 3 for 159 comes out to $53 each - not going to do much better than that.

    Suits on the other hand you can get for cheaper.

    Be careful not to put in a corporate discount though. I tried it and they charged me more. They just gave me the corporate discount from the standard price rather than the sale price (which was less).

    I bought some shoe polish and some of the Milano fit chinos. I was going to buy some ribbon belts, but they sold too fast.

    whoever runs brooks' online warehouse / shipping should be taken out and shot at first light.

    i ordered at the weekend and it's still sitting there. i called and they said it would be at least 10 days before it moves.

    also the idea of charging more for shipping - the more you spend - is crazy.

    maybe they are trying to bring back the ambience of retail in the 1930s.

    C&J ginger suede oxfords for 40% off was a good deal.

    Yeah, a good time to buy shell Alden loafers. Tempting.

    They've had problems with that this year. My Dad purchased a suit on the first day of the sale, and they sent him the jacket without pants. He contacted them immediately and still hasn't heard back from them.

    A lot of the deals are pretty lackluster this year, especially compared to last year. Had I known, I would have stocked up with the 40% off the week before father's day rather than wait until the semi-annual.

    Yea I made the same mistake. I didn't buy a Cordovan belt the week before the sale when it was around $100. I bought one yesterday for 140-150 and it's not even going to ship until August 8th.

    If it makes you feel better, I ordered the cordovan belt during the 40% sale and it's not scheduled to ship till August either.

    I was surprised to see that BB has whiskey shell LHS loafers at the 346 Madison store. I had no idea that Alden produced whiskey shell for BB until I saw the shoes there today, and they're 25% off for the semi-annual sale.

    Just bought a pair of C&J made brown monkstraps for $ 244, which seems pretty steller to me.

    If it's the same pair I saw on the table by the shirts, I think those are faded #8's.

    No, they had more of them in the shoe department. I saw those by the shirt table and wondered about that, but then I saw more in the shoe department.
