Showed up today with leather soles rather than the Dainite shown online. Boo!
It was the same case with my order. BB's processing system leaves a lot to desire.
One was an OCBD and it just wasn't good. I think I got the Supima one over the regular. Maybe that's why the fabric didn't feel like good ol' sturdy oxford.
I ordered on the 26th and got my package on the 28th. And that was standard shipping.
I got some really awesome stuff at this sale. Including some OCDBs, and a pocket calendar. Not even lying really looking forward to that pocket calendar.
(Up to) 50% off clearance sale under way.
Yeah, the email I got was very misleading - it seemed to imply that there was another 50% off the marked price, but it doesn't seem to be the case. Maybe there will be luck in store.
Still have not shipped even though I got verbal confirmation over the phone and an email from their CS dept stating that it would be shipped yesterday.
I bought a Classic Duffel on the 3rd %40% off....today it is 50% - I did get the price adjustment!
Rancourt beefrolls and chukas are well priced.
A warning on those Rancourt beefrolls.
I bought a pair last summer and they fit noticeably tighter than the Rancourt beefrolls made for Ralph Lauren.
for those of you interested, i was at the store and they had a 50% off sale (for sport shirts), there were many styles and fits sorted by size. i was at the rookery store in chicago, fwiw.
Question for those with experience with the Brooks Brother's OCBD: I wear the ESF OCBD in a 14.5 / 32 (the USA made ones). It fits well but is quite fitted, namely I can't fit an undershirt underneath. I would like to be able to wear an undershirt under the OCBD--would I be better off sizing up to a 15 in ESF or getting a Slim Fit in 14.5 for a little extra room in the body of the shirt?
I remember the website having more comprehensive shirt measurements before the re-do--which I would have consulted--but I couldn't find those when I looked.
If you like the fit of the ESF, I would avoid the Slim Fit. I own both in the same size (14.5/32) and there is much more room throughout (body, arms, etc...) on the Slim Fit.
Have you tried more fitted undershirts? I usually wear an undershirt (not always) and had good results sizing down on them.
Damn, missed the sale and I was in need of a navy blazer.
When is the next big sale where I can get 20 to 30% off?
Thoughts on the Shearling boots and who the maker is?
