    I think a decent discount is 30%, but IIRC the post holiday sales gets you a percentage plus a kicker. If you don't want to wait another 6 months I would just pull the trigger at 30%. There were also some lightweight captoes that were on sale that some people thought were C&Js that were on sale for around $250 in the past.

    I saw a Brooks Brothers suit in Century 21 today. It was odd - sort of a 2-roll-1 lapel, leaving only the bottom button to be buttoned. It didn't seem right, as it buttoned well below the navel area. Does anyone know what suit this is and how to wear it? The retail price was listed as $1600.

    Sounds like a defective Golden Fleece two button suit.

    Sleven, are your coworkers asking where you're getting all these orders from? :slayer:

    I assume that the semi-annual sale will exclude Cordovan shoes? Itching for a pair, but don't need to have them immediately.

    Agreed. I'm in Boston so at least there are many options and reviews to sift through.

    30% off would make it about $450 after taxes. Do you think this shoe is worth $450? Any better options out there at that price point? (i can't do AE park/fifth ave due to the #5 last).

    it all depends on your needs. imo, 30% is ok. I still believe the after holiday deal is better if you can wait and hope your size is available, and that's when your SA comes in..If the price comes out to be $450 with taxes for the BB C&J, I would rather go directly with C&J handgrade for a few extra bucks and better choices. That's assuming you know your size/fitting on a specific last.
