    You can't. I asked. My SA said just buy one with the 40% off instead.

    A little outside my comfort zone but I bought that Brooks Brothers Own Make SC in nantucket red, or some such shade ...

    40% off made it an easier venture outside my comfort zone and it also fit nearly perfect off the rack. Very slight sleeve length adjustment and that's about it.

    That SC is in the spring look book, I think, but not on the website because I just went there a second ago looking to provide a link to it.

    Picked up the Peal & Co whole cut medallion using 40% off, but thinking about returning them since I found out they are corrected grain. Anyone have these and have experience with the leather?

    I'm surprised to hear that about Peal & Co shoe uses corrected grain leather. If you don't mind, where did you get your information from?

    I was surprised as well since I got them without giving it second thought. I initially thought the leather was a little plasticky, but figured C&J (who I believe is the maker) doesn't use corrected grain. Here is my source:

    Huh, I wonder how many of those shoes use Calvary Calf or corrected grain leather? Do keep mind however that not all Peal & Co shoes are made by C&J.

    How does brooks brothers usually take to process and ship an other? I placed my order on Saturday and it hasn't been shipped yet. I called this afternoon and they told me that it would probably ship tomorrow or Friday.

    Sounds about right for weekend order since it takes a couple of days to process beginning on Monday.

    Brooks' "Luxury" shirts are on sale for $59. Regular retail $185. A broad selection available in regular, slim and extra-slim fit, in both non-iron and must iron.

    I have a bunch of these. The fabrics are terrific. The only difference I can tell between these and my Golden Fleece shirts are the buttons. (The GF shirts have thick MOP buttons, while those on the Luxury line are plastic.)

    Remember to use bb15 for an extra 15% off and Shop Runner for free two-day shipping.

    Fwiw, I tried buying the EG loafers with the 40% off coupon in the Michigan Avenue store and they would not give it to me. Annoying since the exclusions on the card were pretty ambiguous and felt like it was a waste of my time to try and draw me into the store.

    Thanks for the heads-up. Picked up a $185 dress shirt for $55 shipped (including tax).

    Fyi - brooks borthers is honoring the 40% coupon for phone orders even if you did not get the coupon. I emailed customer sevice and was told to call in, reference the email and was given the discount. I didnt push my luck with cordovan, but it may be worth a shot for someone to try if your SA doesnt budge.

    If the person who answers the phone seems clueless, ask for Alan or Rebecca. I had good experiences with them.

    PERFECT! It worked! They honored the 40%! All I had to do was be nice, ask for it and be nice some more.

    BTW: what's the expiration date on the 40%? (I'm not pushing my luck on another purchase, just curious so I can share this with friends)
