    It's not that good of a deal.

    It's the only sale on MTM and MTO. Normal sale discounts do not apply to either. Agree that, even with this discount, still not a good deal.

    Finally wore my first BB XSF (extra slim fit) shirt. Fits great on me but I it has one of my pet peeves of not having buttons on the forearm vent (not sure if that is the right term).

    The term is sleeve placket. I agree. It would be nice to have them. BB french cuff shirts do have them.

    Bothered me at first, but now I've learned to live without them.

    Just picked these up:
    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Peal-Co.[​IMG]-Medium-Perforated-Captoe/MH00234,default,pd.html

    Definitely seems to be C&J constructed, with a 341 written in the lining.

    However, I can attest to the fact that it's not the same as a standard 341 in E width that they sell in the UK. It is definitely at least one width thinner (probably the equivalent of a UK D width), and the shape of the BB shoe is much sleeker.

    Is this a common thing for white labeled C&Js? I feel like I've heard something similar with C&J-made Ralph Laurens.

    Calgary BB downtown has some Peal cordovan boots on for 50% off. Sizes that I saw were 8.5 and 10.5 (might be another size there). Other BB stores across Canada may have the same.

    toe spring - the upward curvature of the end of the toe box of a shoe.
