    IMO asking why BB does anything is like asking why the corner drunk pees on himself. No offense (to you) intended.

    Nope. Just out of season clearance with very limited selections and sizing.

    The 60% off clearance explains why they removed a bunch of stuff from the clearance section.

    They didn't remove it. It disappeared temporarily while they were reducing prices.

    Something I specifically noticed with the last batch of BB shirts I got but has really become a pretty common and absurd trend with a lot of brands:

    It seems like clothing manufacturers have really gone overboard with care tags and labels. On the latest OCBD shirts, there were three different nylon labels sewn inside the bottom of the shirt placket, on top of each other. Seems like it was just a dozen different translations of the same care instruction that's on the bottom front placket. It got to the point that I finally had to cut them off with scissors… I iron all of my shirts dry and the excess labels were becoming a major annoyance.

    Does anyone know the reason for these care labels getting so out of hand? In some instances they are in excess of 3 to 4 inches.

    ^ I've noticed that with casual clothing as well. Perhaps the same manufacturers are making things for multiple brands, and they have decided to do away with the hassle of figuring out which brand requires instructions in which language!

    Probably just the result of international expansion and increased regulations.

    Looks like it doesn't stack w/ 15% corporate discount. Doesn't it make more sense to open a card during the next corporate event instead?

    I placed an order last Friday during the sale and the order status is still "submitted", i.e., not processed or shipped yet. Does it take this long for everybody, or is it just my order?

    Usually takes a pretty long time in my opinion.

    Mine always ships the next day (I use Shoprunner - not sure if that would make a difference). The only time it doesn't ship immediately is when I order something from the new season that is not yet in stock. For example, I've been waiting for a pocket square to ship since July, but everything else in that order was shipped the next day. Does what you ordered have a red expected shipping date on the listing for it? (You can see what I'm talking about where it says "1 unit(s) expected to ship on 9/13/14" on these socks: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/Stret...ks/MB00479_____BRWN_ONE__SIZE,default,pd.html)

    I use shoprunner also, and none of the items I ordered are from the new season. Very strange...

    That's very odd. I would suggest giving them a call.
