Am I correct in that the sale that just passed and the one in June are the best time to buy shoes?
I believe that is correct - shoes are not a typical sale item - good times to buy are twice a year - allen edmonds also has a great sale around thanksgiving.
Also - is outerwear seasonal?
Did anyone get his order delivered yet? I placed an order on December 25, still no shipping confirmation. When will BB get its shit together?
^ Mine still appears as "submitted."
All orders shipping from the warehouse will not be processed until wednesday at the earliest (warehouse shut over xmas/new year period)
I don't know about that, I received an order that was placed trough a store but shipped from the warehouse, didn't take nearly as long. The order placed through website is still not processed. I ordered a few pairs of shoes and have a feeling they may not process or say that they are not in stock, their inventory management is a joke.
This is nothing new - Brooks delivery is painfully slow. I once waited until the following July to get some white OCBDs that were backordered from the Dec 26 sale.
Most recently, I ordered a pair of cordovans during the corporate sale on November 16.
After a week (the order was still in my account as "submitted") I emailed for a status update.
Still no response for another week.
So I email them a second time.
2 days later I get a response saying the shoes will ship soon.
The next day they arrive on my doorstep - 17 days after ordering.
And to top it all off, 2 days after delivery they responded to my 2nd email saying that the shoes were delivered so why was I complaining?
I thought after the one that just passed (36.25%) that the next best time was any of the corporate shopping days (30%).
Sleven placed an order for me on 26 December and I received shipping confirmation a few days later. I think I was set to receive today, but have not checked tracking and I was only at work for half a day today. Could have arrived after I left.
Rcvd a shipping confirmation w/ tracking today.
Delivery expected for Jan 2nd.
I ordered a suit and some shirts on Dec. 25th (early around 5 AM PST) and received a shipping confirmation on Dec. 28th; scheduled to be delivered on Jan. 4th.
Hoping the ESF shirts are of decent quality. The last three non-iron ESF shirts I bought had horrible collars...the placket did not line up with the buttons accurately, causing one end of the collar to be longer than the other.
Happy New Year, gentlemen!
The picture below is my newly arrive 1818 suit. BB (or Lardini) seems to have done a very poor sewing job on the armhole. You can see a few dents around the seam. The left arm on the other hand has no such problem and drapes properly. Should I go for an exchange? My another question is this why the color of this navy solid is much darker than regular navy blue. Is it possible the SA in store accidentally gets me a black suit? Thanks!
That's just spalla camicia. . . Happy New Year!
I don't think so.
Here are some more pictures of the "dents"
The left side on the other hand seems to be okay
