    will the F&F discount apply to stuff that is already on sale?

    Never knew they offered that many for that price. During the F&F sale, the shirts come out to be around the same price, so you can probably pick some up then for just a little bit more.
    I believe that you do get the discount on top of sale items IIRC.

    During the last semi-annual sale, shirts were buy 4, get 40% off, which worked out to about $210 for four shirts. I assume you will see something similar during the upcoming after Father's Day sale.

    Anyone know when their wool trousers will next be on sale? And I mean a "steal" sale, not a typical 10% markdown. Do they even have this kind of sale on trousers?

    Yes, for some of the sales you can get 25% off the two for $230 pricing, which works out to about $172 for two pairs of gabardines. Not sure if Friends and Family will allow 25% off the Brooks Buy pricing or not, but the recent corporate incentive sale did.

    Hey fellas, not sure where to post this question, so I'll go ahead and post it here. :)

    I'm thinking of picking up a Brooks Brothers suit at the upcoming F&F sale. How would you guys say BB suit quality is at 25% off? I've tried on the Fitzgerald fit, and it fits me pretty well. I'm not too well versed in suit "quality," though, so any opinions would be appreciated.

    As a newbie myself, it seems that the consensus on this board is that BB suits are worth buying ONLY if you get it during a sale for a reduced rate. The quality is apparently good, but not worth the $900 regular price. I'm planning on getting a BB suit also, but might wait until the semi-annual sale.*

    *Not to hijack your post, but any chance that the semi-annual sale will occur before mid-August. I have a wedding to go to and need a suit for that, and plan on getting my first proper suit. Thanks.

    Plenty of suits on B&S from the clearance centers, will be a lot cheaper than clearance centers

    I am looking at the black fleece C&J dark brown loafer, but even with the F&F 25% off it will still ring about $420, which I think it makes more sense just up my game and buy the RL Marlow penny.

    Hey stevent, unfortunately, the suit and size that I need (plain navy, 38S) is one that's not often discounted / found on B&S. If I had a bit more flexibility (ugly pinstripe suit in a size 46L), I'm sure that I could find a killer deal somewhere. But I think that for my purposes, 25% off is the best that I'm going to be getting.

    Thanks for the input, amathew! Any other thoughts?

    Good value for the money if you pick it up for $500 - $600 on sale.

    Black Fleece sale items are 70% off today. I would guess this is as good as it's going to get. Act quickly!

    Why is the sizing so damn confusing? They can't just use regular sizes for things?
