no worries. you at least got your size, presumably. not always the case when waiting for a sale.
Does the semiannual happen in June?
How do ya'll feel about the polos? They have the dumb logo but are at a good price at ~$35/each.
I prefer these: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...&Parent_Id=1032&default_color=Dark-green#null
Fit is better. Cut is more modern.
Unrelated question: I see the Golden Fleece suit collection is now back up on the website for $1600/suit. What is the difference between GF and 1818? I thought GF was their made-to-measure option.
Golden Fleece is the full canvas higher quality line.
I've seen 2 different Golden Fleece manufacturers this season: One is Southwick (as seen on website) and the Lardini ones (in store).
How do the current Milano pants fit in the waist.
I have 3 pairs in different sizes that all fit the same.
For my Wool Milano's I have a size 30 and fits with a 31" waist.
I posted this question in an earlier affordable dress pants thread but I didn't get a reply, maybe this is the better place.
I usually fit a 31 waist in khakis/ dress pants but I had to size up to a 32 waist in the fitzgerald chinos. Would anybody have any recommendations on how the milano chinos fit in the waist vs the fitz? The fitz seems to be extremely tight in the crotch/ waist area, and I get a lot of pocket bulge, even though I sized up.
I have 4 different pairs that are 1 - 3 years old and they are all sized the same.
BB pants usually fit smaller than pants form other makes for me. I usually buy a size 30, but all my Milanos are size 31.
Hmm not sure if my Polo Custom Fits are mercerized cotton, but it is helpful to know that the Polo ones are slimmer.
So, looking on the site, it doesn't appear that they are offering the "2 for $1600" on their 1818 suits while the F&F sale is going on. Haven't they allowed stacking of the F&F discount on top of this normal offer before?
Every sale is different. Some allow the 25% off the "2 for $XX" deals and some don't. As the corporate incentive sale, the May 23rd one will likely offer 30% off the 2 for $1600 deal.
How are those Supima Cotton Undershirts, sleeveless, athletic fit?
I hear they are oversized?
