    same here. It is worth it if off the rack sizes don't fit you well. I plan on getting a couple shirts made with the 20% off.

    So, some of the Black Fleece suits are on sale at 50% off. I think the style is over priced at their normal price range. The sale doesn't do to much for me as it is still quite expensive> I have been looking for a reliable, long lasting navy suit that is good investment. Is this Brooks Brothers Black Fleece one a reasonable investment at $900 or could I do better? Could I find this suit at a better price or are my expectations too high?

    I would be careful about buying that if you don't really like the Thom Browne look. Have a look at how the Black Fleece "classic suit" fits on actual people (sleeves unusually short, jacket unusually short).

    No dice. I'm a size 36s with an athletic build. My suits need to be slim-fitting, otherwise they look boxy. My first suit I ever bought for a high school dance had me looking that way and I did not enjoy it. I'm somewhat wiser now.

    However, i still need help deciding if Black Fleece is a good option for me price wise or if I'm better off waiting.

    There was an argument about MTM vs. RTW shirts earlier in the thread and there were proponents on both sides.

    Got a chance to look at those threads, and from what the SA mentioned the edits on MTM are limited. Evidently BB does not do a peak lapels.

    I might go for a MTM sports coat and call it a day.

    I have a question - Earlier this week I was talking with the SA I always go to at my local Brooks Brothers and he had some troubling news. He said that he cannot apply percentage off coupons on clearance items. Is this the case? He has a new manager who called him out on it.

    F&F applies to sale items, not sure about anything else

    Does anyone have a copy of the BB Sizing chart for men and women's? They upgraded their site and it's nowhere to be found! :facepalm:

    BB doesn't do peak lapels for MTM? I have one I bought last year.

    I was under the impression that you could not stack discounts.

    The BB SA was pretty sure about no peak lapel options, but I'll ask him again when i stop by for the event.
