TBS prices are so good its basically on sale anyway
Occasionally, TBS will blow stuff out. Wasn't there a 25% off code (on outerwear?) last spring that doubled up somehow?
Some great deals to be had here. Thanks for the heads-up.
I don't think the 30 percent code applies to Forward.
Sale ends right before their next shipments arrive...
Starting to think this is true.....
I have never found that to be the case. Their prices - VAT = US prices. Currently, the shipping is free, but at other times it is a killer, though they are nice enough to mark the items to save duties. There really is no reason to go to them other than the variety.
Or wait to see if another retailer has it that has markdowns coming up. What are you wanting?
APCs at $156, Our Legacy is about $30 less than normal, it depends on what you want but some deals are decent.
^Ways to get APC around that or cheaper. OL, probably cuz Swedes are bros and hook each other up. Most foreign brands they stock are similarly priced as elsewhere except maybe lower than blackbird....never miss the opportunity to mention their prices
Bit the bullet and bought the CP's on TBS.
My luck they'll be on sale within weeks. Fuck it, glad to get getting the shoes (Got the Chukkas in washed tan leather).
They're also on Gargyle, Mr Porter, and maybe Park and Bond. Figuered should Gargyle offer 20% off that would then make them comparable to TBS's price after free shipping.
Their sale won't start until Jan 2nd anyway don't worry.
Chances are CP will be on sale somewhere else within this month though. Btw, I also don't find TBS pricing to be as amazing as other people claimed. For the stuff I want, it generally comes out to about 10% off US pricing, which, if you add in shipping, it's really not a good enough deal to buy when not on sale.
I usually find for my items it is $5-10 above or below US prices without shipping.
Well Tres Bien Shop has those Our Legacy boots I'm thinking about for $125 less shipped to my door than any US retailer I could find them at without counting shipping...
tres bien has fantastic prices for a lot of europe-based brands, i don't think you can find a pair of mmm sidezips for under $700 (not on sale) anywhere else much less for $632 . or a stark cardigan for under $280.
CPs etc they have to import from the US so naturally retail is 10%-ish higher than US prices (e.g. Original Achilles is $420 from tbs and $390 from barneys) but they are usually cheaper post vat deduction + potential state-side sales tax ($354 vs. $390(+$35))
