I dunno about the semi-annual sale but I can say with confidence that you can get BBBF for cheaper. The last shirt I got from them (last month) was a beautiful 2-ply, 120's Sea Island OCBD (retail for $250) for $65. Again this was definitely a S/S shirt but does show you can get much better deals as time passes. All that said, if you really want then buy. Otherwise your size will be gone and you'll end up trying to buy a substitute that will never quite be what you want. Just my experience.
