    I'm wondering how much of the mark-up was actually spent on design and production costs. Their ESF non-iron section exploded with options. I just took a look at their selection and it has at least tripled if not more.

    I also don't know if this may be a reason for the price, but I noticed each shirt for the ESF non-iron line now states "Supima" prior to it. Did they always use Supima cotton? Their regular cotton shirts don't carry the Supima tag.

    LA area BB trunk show is on march 9-10
    20% off MTM during the two days ...

    and the 10/15/20% discount or something for rest of the month(?) if you buy 1 or 2 or 3 special order item
    there was some signs posted but i didn't really pay attention beyond the 20% during the trunk show

    I walked past my BB store today and the same kind of discount, no one was really interested in talking to me about it so I just left. Reminded me why I hardly shop there...

    Thanks, that's what I though.

    On another note, I really wanted these in burgundy but they ran out: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...ort_by=newArrivals&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    I was willing to settle for these: http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...ort_by=newArrivals&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=
    But they don't have my size.

    :(

    Heaven forbid that you have to ask somebody. What a tragedy.

    I am dragging info out of my local brooks brothers associate on the next sale. She said to call her back next week and that there is a sale starting mid march. She said its one of those buy this much save this much. For example, if I buy $1,000 worth I can save $250. Have they ever had one of these sales?

    Every Spring and Fall. FWIW, BB usually runs a 25% off corporate incentive sale in late March. If you have the corporate discount card, you get 25% off anything in the store. Get on the e-mail list and you will get an e-mail announcing the sale.

    Sure. And typically at the start of the season, so this is probably legit.

    On the topic of whether Brooks Brothers is raising quality to go along with higher prices, today they announced that their non-iron shirts are now made of supima cotton. Be curious when anyone inevitably picks one up whether they notice a difference. I know many here steer away from the non-iron collection, but it's a must for me.

    What are the biggest website sales BB runs (40% or more) and when do they usually run these? Forgive me if this was already answered. Thanks.

    I never feel comfortable at BB. Me prefers BBBF. Actually, ever since I discovered how well RLBL suits fit me, the only reason why I even go to BB is for the ESF shirts and the occasional sale on shoes

    I have very similar experiences at BB. The sales associates tend to ignore me, but I figure it's because I look young and usually shop in jeans. I do notice that they treat the older, better dressed shoppers better.

    By the way, is the supima cotton new? I noticed that too on the website. I thought their shirts were made from supima previously already but just not stated?
