    That's an awesome looking coat and a great deal!

    Thank you!!

    I'm sorry I'm not very familiar with those brands. Based on the information your provided, I would recommend the Small size. Brooks Brothers sweaters offer a generous cut.

    That is correct, including not having an overload of inventory.

    BB has been sliding down a slippery slope with all these sales. If there is a sale every month then nobody pays retail and pretty soon you are JAB.

    Quality-wise, they've already gotten pretty close to JAB (if not right on par). Playing the price game is dangerous, but BB's no longer a "big-timer's brand." A lot of people (including myself), wouldn't pay full retail for their suits if they came with two shirts, two ties and a second suit for free.

    Ouch. Makes my half canvassed, made in USA sack blazer at 25% off purchase last Friday sound a lot less exciting...

    dude, its some random guy on the internet. Sure, some of BB's stuff is no longer what it was, but that goes for pretty much every brand under the sun.

    from my experience, BB is still at least two rungs above JAB, so i hope that re-excites you

    I was making the point that BB has moved toward JAB's everything on sale all the time pricing model. I strongly disagree that JAB quality is anything near that of BB. That is a ridiculous statement.

    Big timer's brand? Like Grey Goose?

    I'm 95% sure that jacket is made in the Southwick factory (BB owned now) with loro piana fabric. I think you're ok.

    I honestly believe our quality is superb but have had my head in those MTM books as of late; has anyone placed a MTM order recently?
