    As far as I know, BB does not have free alterations. I paid about $40 to hem my pants and shorten the sleeves.

    Depends on the alterations, ie Sleeves shortened or lengthened there's no charge. Hemming, letting out or taking in the waist and seat no charge. But for something major like recutting pants there's a charge.

    Black fleece and also golden fleece(which i guess were recalled) things like taking in the sides there were no charge, but there's a $15 charge for taking in or letting out the center seam.

    The alterations fee's are pretty low and not much to worry about if your in the right size and cut. I usually only need to pay $18 for taking in the sides

    I've had free alterations done at the BBBF on Fillmore but it seems they were reluctant to offer the service on sale items

    hmm, interesting. I always get complimentary pants hemming and sleeves shortening (SC/suiting) from BB. The only time I remember paying for was an overcoat sleeve tab alteration and waist suppression of an SC...

    FYI, I know they are 40-50% off in the summer sales. Of course that's another 6 months away...

    Any idea what the after Christmas sale at the outlets are going to be? Normally I can find some sweaters or accessories at the outlets - the one I go to never has suits or jackets that aren't 346.
