You got the ONLY U-Throat in your size
BB's navy blue is very dark and almost black in appearance.
It does look a little odd. That is one of those things that would bother me as long as I had the suit.
I ordered from the website on December 26, got shipping confirmation email on the 27th and most of it on arrived on the 28th. Regular shipping.
One item was out of stock so is coming later.
I'm in New York City (close to 346 Madison, not that that helps).
I believe BB uses true navy, which very closely resembles black (especially from far away). I got a navy blazer from BB and it really did look black. It irks me and I would like if BB offered a more modern navy.
Correct. BB navy may look black, especially indoors, but put it beside something which is black and you can see it is blue. I will add that you should look at the lining. The black suits have a black lining. Dark blue lining comes with navy.
Thank you for the tips. I gave them a call, and they agree to arrange an exchange. I hope that one has no such QC problem.
I bought four shirts on Dec. 26, but there is no shipping confirmation yet. I'm not in a hurry, so it is okay for me personally. But this might be a problem for other SF members.
It happens sometimes. I tried on a Samuelsohn suit that had a similar problem (missed QC somehow).
I put it aside with my black coat, and the color is indeed lighter. Thanks for the tips!
My order placed on Dec 27 still shown as 'submitted.'
Edit: Call the 800 line and spoke to a very nice lady and she said the order was on hold. She has since released it off hold to be shipped tomorrow.
You know the Routine by Now.
ALWAYS get the 2nd day air for Shipping--$10.00 extra but well worth it--that's the only way to get your stuff especially after Christmas.
Ordered some stuff for wife Christmas and it shipped out the next day(Dec 26) arrived to me 27.
Placed order 12/26 delivered 1/2
My OCBD shirts arrived just now - order placed 12/26. I haven't inspected closely but they look good thus far.
Thomas is pleased.
I had to call and check the status, the order was not even authorized for processing, the girl on the phone had to call authorization department and get it approved. She said it would ship within 24-48 hours. 10 days and it is not authorized?
