    I believe GF/BF is free for life except for stuff like working buttonholes. They have a pricesheet but I think a plain pants hem is free.[​IMG]

    So my Brooks Brothers is having a 50% sale on everything in the store until Christmas, and an extra 15% if I sign up for the card.

    It could be true. Not all of them carry Golden Fleece, Black Fleece, and some of the other more expensive things from the site.

    I live in Boston and the BB closest to my work carries none of that. Wouldn't surprise me if they did a storewide 50%.

    That sounds like an outlet sale, not a retail store sale.

    I'm thinking outlet as well. OP should remember you're typically getting stuff made for the outlet (346 line), not the same quality you get in the standard retail outlets.

    This. I was at the outlet mall today (and the 50% off sale was in progress last weekend, as well). After Christmas, merchandise from the mainline store will be back to the normal 70% off. I usually head straight for the "70% off" rack, so I save time by skipping most of the "346" stuff.

    Are we expecting a Boxing Day Sale?

    What might it include?

    I am looking to snap up a nice 1818 Milano. Would this be included.

    Also, is it a better bet to jump on it online, or risk going in-store?

    Thank you.

    Much appreciated. I skipped that page and only saw the outlet discussion.

    Does anyone know the SA that normally posts here? The previous one, Mr. Webb, no longer works at his store and I need someone to hold some items aside for the sale on 12/26.

    Darn. 30% off the 1818 won't fall in my budget.

    Sorry guys, the 50% sale I quoted was outlet only. The BB site didn't make a distinction so I didn't know until I called about the shoes :embar:

    Can anyone make some recommendation about shoes to target during the 12/26 sale? Definitely going to get some AE Strands and 5th Ave, but am open to anything else worth a look!

    Can someone explain how to go ahead and reserve items prior to the 12/26 sale? I am looking at several suits online (have not stopped at a store yet) - can I pull these or only items that are available in store?

    Pretty sure you just need to find a sales associate at your local store who would be willing to put items aside for you and then ring them up @ sales price on 12/26.

    I suppose you could also try adding items to your bag/cart online now, refreshing the page on 12/26 and seeing if the prices update - no idea if this works or not. I'd lean toward saying no.

    So I had an SA reserve a grey Fitzgerald Harris Tweed Herringbone for the 26th. I'm not sure if I should cancel it tomorrow and I keep going back and forth. It would be my second sport coat but I am not sure if it is worth the ~$450 or not or if I should wait for a better sale or ebay/thrift it. There was only one in my size though out of the few stores I visited.

    If this is only your second sport coat I would not recommend grey or tweed. Grey is harder to pair with trousers and tweed is rather seasonal IMO.

    My SA just called and said the sale is in the system now and I can buy the items he is holding today.

    25% off, stacks with 15% for opening a card.

    No idea if extra kicker...
