    The 1818 Milano suits @ 60% off are a good buy.

    Just a noob question: I was going through the Black Fleece sale items and everything seems to be available in every size. Is BB selling any of these products or is the BF line just barely getting by?

    Please see my reply from within the last few minutes. You'll find that virtually nothing is available, once you get through checkout.

    The inventory on the website doesn't update in real time. A lot of what appears in stock at first blush isn't actually in stock, but you only discover this after you enter your cc info and go through the bulk of the checkout process. It's annoying.

    The problem is more pronounced than not being updated in real-time. The items seem to be automatically-added in every size. Even if they were once available in every size, they didn't just all sell out immediately. And, the items never go away, at least with this new system.

    Yup it's a joke. And then if you try to edit an item (i.e. the "charcoal" sweater isn't available so maybe I'll settle for the "navy"), you have to go through EVERY step AGAIN (credit card, gift card, etc. etc. etc.).

    I have a few in slim fit and they just started making extra slim fit in those. I ordered two in extra slim fit today. Great casual shirt IMO.

    Yeah. I have the blue chambray. It's nice, but I wish it had side pleats on the back instead of a boxy center pleat. Oh well, linen is supposed to be a bit loose anyway. For the $40 I paid for it it's nice enough.

    Edit: I'm referring to extra slim fit.

    Are the exact measurements of all the fits available on BB for jackets and suits?

    If I'm a 40L in Fitz should I go up a size in Milano?

    Damn shame there's no sport coats I like in my size(s). Have had my eye on a couple really nice ones for a while and only huge sizes are available. Makes me wonder how much stock they even released as this sale because I was looking very early this morning.

    No you should stay in the same size. The Milano is cut shorter though.

    do the ESF luxury shirts fit the same or slightly bigger compared to the normal ESF shirts? Reason I ask is because I have found the SF Luxury shirts are much baggier than the normal SF shirts.

    Size guides are broken on the BB website. They don't exist. You have to call to get that information. The SA apologized profusely about it when I called to decipher sizes for my boy last weekend. She blamed it on the conversion to the new website and said they hoped it would be fixed ASAP.

    Speaking of sizing, what the heck is "Medium" and "Large" in Extra Slim Fit? Extra Slim 15.5x33 and 16.5x35?

    That's good (and bad) to hear because I'm pretty new to sport coats and still trying to learn what lengths are good for me. Could not find those BB measurements anywhere and was pretty annoyed.

    The sleeves on the medium ESF sportshirt are a little long on me and my typical size for the dress shirt is 15-33, so I would say that the sleeves are probably longer than 33.

    To echo others....

    Tried to pick up a BF suit for $480 but after going through all the rigmarole on the website, they told me they no longer had my size.

    BB website sucks arse :fu:
