    How much will the dress shirts be?

    Probably 40% after the stack discount?

    I'm a total noob at buying at Brooks Brothers and their sales, so any help is appreciated. I'm stepping up my style - you only live once, so look decent while doing it!

    I want to buy a pair of BB shell cordovan shoes.

    Based on the flier posted earlier, it looks like shoes won't be included in the sale. Can anyone else opine on if shoes will be on sale?

    Does BB ever put their shell cordovan shoes on sale?

    Thanks!

    Looks like the SA was inaccurate.

    So is the 60% off Black Fleece sale going to happen? I do not see it being advertised anywhere.

    EDIT: Nevermind, see it on the site.

    It's been going on for at least a few days. All of the current season pants and shirts (including OCBDs) are 60% off. Sizes are going fast.

    EDIT: Interestingly, the clearance merchandise is also 60% off. Go figure.

    During the corporate membership sale 2-3 times a year they are 30% off. Google brooks brothers corporate membership and you can find out how to get enrolled. I honestly dont remember the exact steps but I did it last spring.

    I don't remember if I replied to you the last time on this and I'm too lazy to look up, but I think this is YMMV. Cordovan has not always been included in corporate incentive sales.

    Well there wasnt a last time because I never posted in this thread but yes, there are always exceptions that change. I just know from experience that it happened (that cordovan was included) in spring 2015 (and I think just a month or two ago as well)

    FWIW, I purchased a pair of Alden unlined cordovan LHS in the last BB corporate event, in November. No issue getting the 30% - in fact, it was given as an additional adjustment (as I purchased them a few days earlier @ the usual 15% to ensure I'd have my size).

    On another note, quick question for 240 last shoe owners. I'm wrestling with whether the cord SWBs are my size or not; I'm getting a good deal of heel slip with light socks but it feels more connected to the rock-hard double-leather sole. I wear an 8D in Alden Van and 8E in Park Ave - both are perfect fits. Do I want an 8D, or have others found 7.5 better (which doesn't exist in this shoe)?

    Weirdly, the Peal cord boot is a perfect fit at 8D, though boots are always more forgiving I suppose.

    ETA: I also wear an 8D barrie, but don't love the fit (7.5D too short)

    I think cordovan has been included in the corporate sales since at least March 2013 as that's when I last used the discount on some Aldens. Prior to that the workaround was to add the pair to your cart before the sale. You couldn't navigate to the cordovan models but they were still there. I think google cache worked too.

    Hey,

    Do you remember the last time cordovan was excluded? I feel like I've bought a pair of shell cordovan shoes the past 5-6 sales dating back 2-3 years. I don't recall a single time when shell was excluded.

    Happy Holidays! Be safe.

    There is this one post, but that may have been for the 40% off coupon.

    Yes my memory was that gentleman was trying to buy the new C&J cordovan when a bunch of shoes were discounted at 40%. The shoe he wanted was excluded.

    My comment was specific to CIS @ 30%.

    I know that in the past, I've seen a few cordovan models that the discount definitely worked on, but others that it did not. It seemed like they just missed a few.
