    Typically, Brooks charges for alterations on sale items. But, their alterations charges are usually less than what a tailor would charge.


    They pulled the free shipping over $200 offer for the after-Christmas sale. Tough to complain when you're getting 40+20 off.

    It's funny, on Dec. 26 I was getting additional 20% off on sale items, now I am getting 25% off on sale items. I was getting 25% off prior to the sale. Go figure.

    Same here. However, my SA honored the 40% plus 25% off pricing.

    That's good, can you get EGs at that price?

    No, my total was $184 and I was charged $13 for shipping.

    I started to order an additional 4 slim-fit OCBDs, but didn't see any extra discount (beyond the 40% off sale price), all the way through checkout. What am I missing?

    I believe you are missing the discount, it must be tied to an account. I don't know why some have it and some don't.

    Maybe the additional 40% was for Dec. 26th only. I bought 4 dress shirts for $184.05 ($335 - 20% = $268 - 40% = $160.8 plus tax & shipping = $184.05).

    I got free shipping on an order of about $350. I got a notice a few months back saying I was going to get free shipping on all online orders until early 2012.

    I have been getting free shipping and BB has been sending everything two day air even though I'm not paying for it.

    Received the wrong gator loafers today and snapped some pictures to compare them to my Guccis before returning them. Brown gators are arriving tomorrow:

    Thanks! Exactly the look I was going for.

    Wait, which ones?

    Same, I spent $191 and got charged the shipping. I might be able to get it refunded since I just received an email telling me that one of the products I ordered is sold-out. However I doubt they will refund the shipping, BB has very stern customer service.

    Anyways what's the typical turn-around time with their orders? It seems like they are verrrry slow. I ordered several items from J Crew and they arrived within 2 business days.

    Be sure to post pics of the brown gator next to the black gator (before you return them.) Then set up an obligatory poal to be judged. :)

    I placed an order early december without free shipping and BB offered it a day later online. They gave me my shipping cost back. As for turn around, about 2 days processing.

    Dieselman 2 business days? Was it express? J. Crew takes at least a week to deliver orders to me

    I was charged shipping for my 12/26 order, whose bill came to some $350. Shipping cost was not too bad.

    Still waiting for the order to ship.

    Mine too, what's taking so long? Its Wednesday evening and I ordered Monday. This is a very slow turn around. So far I'm a little disappointed with my online purchase through BB. I received an email regarding one of the ties I wanted (and purchased) that it was no longer available... No this, who know's when my good will arrive.

    I've had orders require two full weeks to ship when every item was in stock. That's how BB operates online.
