    I think the half canvassed Fitzgerald is the best fit, if by the sounds of it, you are looking for your main workhorse. I'm sure the Belvest is well made, but the patch pockets make it a little "dressed down" for day to day. I would also want to see the fabric in person, as I get skeptical when I hear "water and stain resistant" or "travel blazer". Could be treated and not so nice. I don't like the styling of the other 3 between the small lapels, slanted pockets, peak lapels and short overall length (unless the models are exceptionally tall and poorly chosen LOL)

    I know this is incentive to go into the B&M store, but I wish they would offer free shipping based on if your postal code is not within reasonable distance from a store.

    Does anyone know if the discount applies to a Suiting Essentials Milano cut? Or is that different than the normal suiting essentials as far as discounts are concerned?

    That is a fair price for the suit. It's not a steal, but for a starter suit an 1818 is a very solid choice, and it'll be nicer than 90% of the suits people at college are wearing.

    Maybe the corporate discount?

    Can you please elaborate?

    If they are made in the US they are not non-iron. IME BB non-iron has "non-iron" on the label.

    Thanks very much for that reply. I was leaning toward the PS, to be honest. But, yeah, I'm not a blazer person yet and so I usually overlook the shortness of wear the blazer ends. I have a BB Corp. card, too - hopefully I can get that extra discount on top of the already discounted sales price.

    The only blazer I own right now is a Fitzgerald charcoal herringbone but I need to get to the tailor and swap out the buttons, and maybe shorten the sleeves just a tad. Aside from that, it fit me well off the rack.

    I also stashed a brown double windowpane fully canvassed Fitz in my shopping bag this morning so I might pull the trigger on that, too.

    Thanks again! I probably woulda gotten the PS and been disappointed at the trendy short length. The lapels I don't mind so much.

    Does anyone own the corduroy pants that are currently on sale? How are they? You can't tell much from pics.

    It was my impression that neither of those would work with the major sales, as per the not valid with other discounts clause on the sale. Am I mistaken?

    I'd try the corporate discount online, but it insists that my mailing/billing address is invalid.

    The corp discount does not get applied if you try. I made a purchase a few moments ago.

    As expected, but a bit of a shame. The difference between summer sale and the (always available) corporate discount really doesn't seem like enough to go after non-essential purchases. IIRC, the winter sale was a lot better.

    Since BB annoyingly uses different fits for their chinos versus all of their other pants (except Milano, apparently), any with experience want to assess how these fits compare to Fitz in the waist, rear and thigh? It would seem the Clark or the Milano would be the best comparison (plain front, straight fit).
