    Go to a shop and see what is on offer. What someone found in one even last week may not reflect today's offer.

    Answer: The same company that makes the good quality other-colored suits.

    This way you don't get the I'm-not-40-LOL reply.

    @curzon At least you understand. That's like someone saying JOS Bank has good suits. Anytime a store constantly has a "buy one, get another suit free" sale, that's a clear sign to stay away.

    Please familaliarize yourself with their various lines such as their Fitzgerald and their fully canvased GF lines. Once you understand the basics of men's clothing and who makes the various lines that BB has to offer and their shoes please feel free to come back and discuss.

    By the way, if you ever see a 40-year-old wearing BB Black Fleece, please slap him up side the head.

    @Patek So let me understand you correctly. We're on a forum where people can learn about these matters, and ask questions to get a better knowledge and understanding, but yet you want to ridicule someone when they ask questions. The new people would ask questions.

    From reading your comments so far, it seems to me that you wear skirts, leggings and thongs as opposed to suits. In other words you're acting like a....well, I'm sure you know what I'm saying.

    BB fitzgerald is a pretty young cut, especially if you slim it in a bit. Last I checked they had clearance fitzgerald cotton suits for $200. Been considering getting one.

    I'll also mention since you asked for 'quality' that 200 bucks for a half canvassed suit seems pretty good.

    Are you a sexist? What is wrong with wearing skirts? In your world is calling someone a girl or a transvestite an insult?

    BB makes decent quality for the price (especially on sale)and has some very "youthful" lines. This is basic forum knowledge. You asked a question, I answered it.


    Most people I know (myself included) are way below 40 and buy both casual and work clothes at BB.

    I'm actually a fan of J Crew's khaki suits. I've a couple, and they're rather well made.

    I know an executive at a large biotech company whose in his 40-50's who wears a lot of BF actually looks kinda cool

    Anyways as Patek said BB is not just an old man's store anymore, you can get a fitz khaki suit for like 200-300$. I wear a lot of BB, and i'm not 40+
