    So when the website states the suits are "imported" should I assume these are the non-Italian factories (e.g., Thailand)? For Italian suits I've seen "Made in Italy" advertised.

    It's pretty much a safe bet. Whenever the description does not advertise the country of origin, it's usually cause they don't think it's worth advertising. It becomes simply a statement of disclosure...

    You should start to see it today online and by the end of the weekend in the store.

    The only time I have found that to not be the case is on some of the Black Fleece shoes. The site listed them as imported (and a call with customer service did not shed any further light), but when they arrived they thankfully turned out to be made in England.

    Specifically the Peal & Co cordovan. $738 when they were new last fall to $998 now.

    Exactly, I was eyeing them before but I'm going to have to pass. I guess BB realized they priced them too low in comparison to RL Marlows.

    EG Galways went from $1600 to $1720.
    Peal Cordovan boots went from $999 to $1099.
    Thankfully I already own them. [​IMG]

    That is some price increase. Nuts.

    Maybe some of you will find this interesting.

    I recently received an email from BB asking me to participate in an online survey with a gift card offered as an incentive.

    I completed the survey. Here are a couple of bits that I found interesting.

    First, Brooks Brothers may be introducing a "rewards program":

    [​IMG]

    My guess is that the rewards program would replace the current corporate membership program and friends & family sales since those two sales programs are the best ways to get the lowest prices on BB merch.

    Further, it looks like they are considering a "prime" style membership option:

    [​IMG]

    My guess is that this would replace the current shoprunner partnership which is the only way to get free shipping right now.

    There were lots of questions about examples of membership benefits I would consider the most attractive. I can post more details if anyone is interested. Some of the suggested perks seemed a little bizarre to me.

    So who here would pay an annual membership fee to BB in order to have certain perks?

    Next time I am in BB, I will ask the shoes salesperson what the deal is with the price increases. I have been buying shoes from her for a long time so she will likely give me the straight scoop if she is clued in.

    I filled out the survey some time ago as well. the code didn't work when I tried using it about two weeks after submitting the survey (and BB didnt respond to my enquiry about it) so be sure to use your code ASAP

    To provide the membership perks listed (by what I remember):

    -Priority sale access
    -Free monogramming
    -Free pressing
    -Complimentary drink in store
    -Free shipping
    -Free gift after a certain number of purchases (free tie with three purchased shirts)
    -"Point" bonus windows
    -Transfer partners (CC programs: ex. AmEx MR, Citi TY)
    -Transfer partners (Charities: ex. St. Jude's)
    -Dedicated/priority phone number

    The survey was just a ranking of these by preference.

    Any word on when the next 30% off corporate sale is? Has been a while since I remember one.

    Nope. There's a 25% F&F coming this month.

    I did the survey as well. Sounds like they're going to try to pull an Amazon Prime. Not thrilled with the "benefits" they're tossing around if it involves an annual fee.

    Seriously! Free pressing or complimentary drinks in store. That's crap. To me, the only benefits that matter were:
    1. Free shipping
    2. Priority sale access.

    That's it. The other stuff don't really matter to me.
