    Keep in mind that they are on a terrible last, IMO. The 240 is super uncomfortable. YMMV.

    I had a tough time fitting the 240 also, but eventually I found something. It is an odd one though. I usually take a 9.5 D or E. On this last, I take a 9.5C, and I never take a narrow. I was only able to do this because I went to the store in-person, and the salesman had me try like 4 different sizes.

    Anyone have thoughts on the gabardine trousers? I don't have any dress trousers right now, so I was thinking about picking up two pairs during the sale. Maybe one mid gray, one light gray. They come to about $80 each with all the discounts. I'm just not sure if I should go with gabardine -- seems like SF prefers flannels.

    I have a pair of gaberdine Madison's in Navy, that I picked up from an outlet once. I think I paid about $70, and feel like $80 is a good price to pay for them.

    I have several pairs of the BB gabardines, and they're a good value at $80. Flannel pants are a nice seasonal piece, but I wear my wool slacks day in and day out all year long.

    I recently bought a pair of mid-grey BB Madison gaberdine trousers for $70 at Marshalls. They are currently at the tailors for minor alterations, but they seem to be decent for the price. I don't think I would ever dream of paying the full ticketed price for them, though ($195 CDN).

    Cross-posting from the Alden thread as this is BB related -

    Quick question for owners of the BB unlined penny - will they stretch at all? I purchased TTS but down 1 width, 12C, and they are fine in the length and in the heel but tight across the strap. They feel like they've stretched a touch in the five minutes that I've worn them but want to make sure before I return and backorder an 11.5D. Thanks!

    Are there any Brooks Buys on pants besides the Madison ones? Are there other fits/fabrics that are normally included in those? I'm looking to stack with the corporate sale.

    Yeah. I was thinking more like flannels or if they ever do it for the mohair blends or linen blends, but I could use a couple pair of gaberdine.

    Yep. Assuming your corporate membership is associated with your account for the site, you won't see the deductions until right before you submit your order and complete the checkout process.

    okay... BB corporate membership has got to be the most backwards deal ever...
    i've moved since signing up for the membership
    it won't let me change my address online ... which means none of my credit cards will go through because they have the new address while my BB online account will not let me enter a different shipping or billing address
    w...t....f....
    i guess i need to wait til the morning to resolve this

    You guys could just call and order, they'll apply discount to everything, including Cordovan / EG everytime I've asked during a corporate sale like this





    ESF isn't that slim, just a standard slim fit shirt by SF standards. I'm fat and ESF doesn't fit particularly tight for me, drop 6 standard for me, 40 chest, 34 waist
