25% Off Everything at Brooks Brothers – Use code 04FRIEND
Looks like it expires 5/9/2011 Credit to Shawn for the StyleTip
In most cases, 30% off is a great deal while 25% off is a good deal. But this is Brooks Brothers. They don’t discount much, their goods are more expensive (often for solid reasons), and this is site wide. 25% off your entire purchase when you use the code 04FRIEND. No minimum, no select items, none of that usual tomfoolery. Even their clearance section gets the extra 25% off treatment.
It’s also (so far) a quiet one. No mention of it on BrooksBrothers.com. The code is floating around out there in some corners of the internet, but it’s not being openly broadcast either. Here’s a few idea starters in case you want to take advantage:
Extra-Slim Fit Pencil Stripe & Extra Slim Fit Gingham Shirts – $29.81 (reg. $79.50)
Both on clearance and both in the trimmest fit of dress shirts that Brooks Brothers offers. Pencil stripes don’t get nearly enough respect, and Gingham gets plenty of love. Now under $30 a piece. Know that the Pencil Stripe is a French cuff.
Already marked down to $260, the extra 25% off gets it just north of $200. It’s rare to find an unstructured wool sport coat. This one is a woven in England wool/cashmere blend, “soft deconstructed shoulders” and it’s unlined. Comes in their trimmer/higher armholes Regent Fit.
Italian Silk Knit Ties – $59.62 (reg. $79.50)
Still expensive at $60, but that’s how you do a bold striped knit tie. Fabric is knitted in Italy, tie itself is made in the USA. Tons of color options.
Unstructured Cotton Chalk Stripe Sport Jacket – $74.25 (reg. $198.00)
Jeans, chinos, even a pair of white linen pants. The chalk stripe is unique (and some have said it makes it look like an orphaned sport jacket) and the washed cotton means it can be dressed up or down. More modern fit, sizes are getting pretty limited. Originally $200, was down to $100, now $75.
The Milano Fit from Brooks Brothers is pretty trim. If you’ve got bigger upper legs, it might be borderline too trim. The Five Pocket Vintage Chinos are setup like jeans only in washed cotton instead of heavier denim. The Gryphon pants also come in the flat front Milano fit.
Extra Slim Fit Garment Dyed Oxford – $29.81 (reg. $79.50)
Lots of extra slim fit on clearance. Good for the more athletic guys, but maybe that spells doom for that fit with Brooks Brothers? Button down Oxfords, nothing fancy, which is terrific.
Still a major investment for most, but now half off thanks to it being on clearance then combined with the discount code. Made in the USA. Natural Shoulders. Not as trim as the Fitzgerald fit, since the Madison is the traditional Brooks Brothers silhouette, so know that when considering size.
Made in the USA Cedar Shoe Trees – $21.00 (reg. $28.00)
Around $20 is about as low as a really good pair of shoe trees will sell for. And these are a real nice pair of shoe trees (have a pair myself). A small investment for taking care of your shoes.
Ray-Ban New Wayfarer Sunglasses – $89.25 (reg. $119.00)
Yay for the retail collaboration trend. Double yay when those same brands get lumped in with site wide sales. Also available in black, with other styles of Ray-Bans at BrooksBrothers.com
Pebble Messenger Bag – $298.50 (reg. $398)
Whoa. For those that want a dressed up work bag with a more laid back shape, here it is. Black football-like pebbled leather with brown leather trim. Brass Hardware. Incredible looking grab handle.
