1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    $56 / shirt is not bad. Assuming you need the staples they offer + they fit you well, where can you go to do better?

    Hopefully this helps -- the slim fit in a 16 is a bit too baggy, but fits pretty good. If I size up to a 16.5 extra slim fit, it's pretty closet to perfect. If you have broad shoulders and a chest, you might have to go a size up to fit into the extra slim fit because it's not made for people with shoulders and a chest.

    Do they usually have this 30% off sale in late December?

    Maybe he is referring to their buy 4 shirts and get 40% off sale last December. http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1155081/

    Or maybe he mistyped and meant 3 shirts for $150, which hasn't been too uncommon.

    And then there is the 3 for $135 sale in 2010. http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/1059735/

    So many sales, yet so little opportunity for Toronto folk like us.

    Do they normally have a boxing day sale? I'm in the market for a suit and if they have a boxing day sale + being able to hit one of the outlets I might be able to make a BB one work for me.

    Speaking of, which is their slim fit line? (if they have one)

    I think their outlets carry the 346 line, which isn't part of the well renowned set of suits that everyone on SF and AAAC moans about. So you wouldn't exactly be getting "Brooks Brothers quality."

    Thanks! My neck measurement is 15", my chest is 36" and my sleeve lenght is about 35". A custom fit RL shirt in 15 38 is too large for me in chest and waist. should I go with 15 35 then?

    Outlets carry the Fitzgerald fit in limited fabric choices.

    I bought 2 Luxury, Extra Slim Fit shirts with a cutaway collar. I'm very happy with this line so far, nice fabric and no breast pocket.

    Does BB usually have a sale that takes place around or after Christmas/New Years?

    Last year 40% + 20% was great. Anyone know if this year it will be the same? Looking at picking up a carcoat. Anyone have any recommendations of a BB coat? Looking at grey or navy color.

    Have you looked at IM Label? They do custom shirts. I bought 3 BB ESF last Boxing Day and they fit better than other stuff but they are a bit baggy still. IM Label I am able to get a better fit, choose options plus price is only around $70 a shirt, which ain't bad.
