    I talked with someone who used to work in their purchasing dept. She said they get blazers from China for $60 and retail them at whatever price they do!

    $39.99

    It is rumoured but not confirmed that they are going to have a "Buy none, get one free sale".

    That should stir up interest!


    Well, I look at it this way - the buy one get one free = 50% off. Why go with that when at times they have suits for 70% off their inflated price.

    A JAB $250.00 suit would probably cost me $100.00 to have altered to my liking. It may by palatable for a kick around suit in which a good tailor can make look better than when the suit was 1st received. Anything above that $250.00 mark wouldn't be attractive.

    I'll have to switch to your cable provider, because on my TV we get absolutely inundated with the cheesiest, low-budget JAB ads you've ever seen. Seriously, the ads for the local car dealer and personal injury lawyers are better put together.

    Seriously.

    I must get bombarded with about 10 or 15 nails-on-a-chalkboard-irritating JAB commercials every weekend. Their voiceover guy makes me want to pull an Elvis and empty a few clips into the TV.

    You guys can rip on JAB all you want but they are also selling pants buy 1 get 1 free. They are one of the few places I know of that sell washable wool pants. For convenience and cost effectiveness, not a bad deal

    Jos Bank does not make us suffer through horrible commercials.

    I've suffered many a morning nightmare being awakened to, "The Jooooseph A. Bank sale. At Jooooseph A. Bank!. Jooooseph A. Bank!" listening to 1010AM.

    Jooooseph A. Bank!

    Buy none, hate all free. And $100 will not get that suit altered to anything like a good fit.

    Just thought I let you know the sale they've got going on.

    Thanks for the warning - not that anyone here would be dumb enough to be duped by JAB's crafty marketing ploys......oh wait

    too late I guess!

    Went to the store with a co-worker during lunch. When we walked in the sales guy said," How can I help you". My co-worker said, "I am here for the buy a pair of socks get 14 suits for free sale." I started laughing so hard I had to leave the store.[​IMG]

    I've walked into a JAB a few times, and their stuff always reminds me of used car salesmen. Everything just has this really horrible look to it.

    I don't make a habit of recording live newscasts on DVR, no. Not every program gets DVRed.
