Take 25% off at BrooksBrothers.com with FNFBB1
Code expires Monday September 24, 2012. In case you’re suit shopping, here’s the order in which Brooks Brothers suits fit, with the Milano fitting the slimmest: Milano<Regent<Fitzgerald<Madison (note that the Fitzgerald is “inspired by JFK” and still claims a trimmer fit.) F&F event is going on in store too, and you’ll need the mailer card for that.
25% off is nice. But when it’s 25% off new stuff that’s at full retail, and you’re at Brooks Brothers… your checkbook can still take a serious beating. TJ Maxx this is not. Some limited picks here that won’t hurt too much (maybe. okay, some will) Better deals can be found over in the clearance section, where the 25% off code FNFBB1 still works.
Cedar Shoe Valet – $96.00 ($128)
The Cadillac of shoe valet kits. Cedar box with all the trimmings. Two horsehair brushes, two daubers, and black and brown shoe creme. If you know someone who’s just starting to get into dressing well, or maybe someone who’s been liking the entire style thing for awhile but doesn’t have good gear to take care of their shoes, this is a perfect gift. Made in the USA.
Driving Mocs in Buffalo or Suede – $96.00 ($128)
These were on sale forever, but sizes got short and they eventually disappeared. Welcome to the new stock. Under $100 and darn near perfect looking in either suede (4 colors) or buffalo leather (2 colors.)
Regent Fit Suits – $637.13 per IF you buy two ($998 for one at full retail)
This is way high. But, if you just landed a job where you’ll be in a suit 5 days a week, need something not bulky but not crazy modern, and want something that can take a beating… a grey and navy Fitzgerald Fit from Brooks Brothers is a very solid foundation to a suit collection. Price assumes you’re buying two and get the 2 for $1699 price. Then the 25% off is applied. Cripes that’s a lot of cash.
Slim Laptop Case – $223.50 ($298)
The top end of the plain, nylon with leather trim laptop case. Ballistic Nylon with Buffalo leather trim, it’s made in the states, and it does balance the entire rugged and professional thing pretty well. Still carries a pretty hefty price tag.
Harris Tweed or Blackwatch vest - $148.50 ($198)
Vests can get expensive, but with the 25% off, these are still a splurge but not totally unattainable. Harris tweed option can be a workhorse for your fall wardrobe. No lapels on that one. The blackwatch pattern has lapels and the pattern makes it a little more difficult to wear. Plenty more colors, fabrics, and patterns over here.
Won’t ever go out of style.
One of the prettiest damn duffels out there that still retains plenty of masculine character. Enormous at 5460 cubic inches. Bridle leather, water repellent twill exterior, and Made in the USA. Brooks Brothers also carries the medium sized travel bag (2574 cubic inches), and as well as the loved by many Filson Original Briefcase.
Blessed mother of hot pie face. That’ll run a flag up the escalator.
The Brooks Brothers Friends & Family 25% off site wide code FNFBB1 expires on Monday 9/24.
