    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    has anyone found a real gem among the summer sale items? because nothing looks that attractive
    i'm really glad i ordered my 3 jackets with the sale + 30% corporate discount because the current price is more than double what i paid even on sale

    That's a good explanation. The really long staple cottons like sea isle and pima need a long growing season as in the West Indies or Peru, and I guess the US southwest with supima.Even in the US south the season is notlong enough for the long staple sea isle (although it may be grown on some of those barrier islands where the climate is moderated by the ocean and there's no frost) 95% of cotton in the US is short staple upland.

    Sea isle is the best but the pima from Peru is its equal. I have bought a couple of Lacoste T shirts(Peru) and can tell you that it's as good as sea isle and I've been wearing that for 40 years. I don't know however if every model they sell is of the same quality but the ones I bought last year are excellent.

    Few days ago, i checked out a cotton field in Peru and some of the sample fabrics at a nearby mill-amazing stuff. Coincidently enough, For my trip i packed a favorite - rag&bone cotton t made in Peru - super soft and amazing hand. Would recommend the sea island cotton shirts as they are a great value when on sale

    • My team doesn't show Suiting Essentials due to the quality difference; they find it reflects poorly on our true suiting options.
    • Regent Gabardine's are identical to the Fitzgerald cotton pant based on a recent experience with a client.
    • I have the next CIS event somewhere in my emails and will try to locate,...keep thinking august or october.
    • SA's, such as myself, cover the shipping through our store ALWAYS.

    I know there were so many other questions and I will try to get back to them when I can. Also, being banned from this site at work is really not helping.

    the BB website seems to be on/off in terms of what's on sale...A couple of days in early June, my SA was kind enough to honor the sale price posted on a few of items for me; Regent soft jacket for $218 and Fitz SC for $250 ...imo, not a bad haul...I'm also thinking about another Fitz Blue/Gray/Brown SC for $270...again these prices are based on those 2 days in early June; not sure if a pricing/computer glitch...

    Many thanks for taking the time to respond. I'm highly interested in the date of the next CIS sale, as it determines whether or not I can wait for it to pick up new suits.

    Does anyone have experience with the differences between the non-iron button down and the regular oxford cloth button downs in terms of material and fit?

    Non-iron
    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...olor=BLUE&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    Classic Oxford
    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...olor=BLUE&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    I am looking for a traditional OCBD, but would love the non-iron practicality. The non-iron version is not labeled as oxford-cloth, so I am not sure if its of a different material.

    Thanks!

    the non-iron version is not oxford cloth. it is much thinner and has a slippery feel because of the chemicals they have enhanced it with. i have both and think both are great.

    For the Peal Perf Captoes or Medallion Captoes that are made by C&J...would you say those are made on sleeker or more conservative lasts that Regular C&J branded shoes? I looked at the pictures on the website and they seem more conservative than some of the C&J's Ive seen online, but it could just be the angles etc. Is anyone able to comment?

    I think I may have seen them in person, but I think the pictures are right. They are more conservative than say the 348 last.

    You guys probably know this from years past but in July select fashion items (linen, seersucker, fashion suits, fashion shirts, etc.) get marked to 40%-50% off. Other basics will go back to FP....
