Use code SPWE12 to take $50 off your purchase of $300, $100 off a purchase of $500, and $200 off a purchase of $800 or more during the Brooks Brothers spring wardrobe event. Code expires 11:59pm ET on 3/12/12
Maybe this post should have been titled: “The Splurge?”
Yes you can get sport coats for much, much less. Cotton sport coats especially. But in the spirit of the difficult-to-compare-athon that is Store Wars, comparing the Target Kensington Cotton Sport coat to one of these is more than apples and oranges. It’s apples and orangutans.*
Both are half canvassed and made in the USA. The Regent Fit on the left is going to fit a bit slimmer than the Fitzgerald on the right. Both have a distinctive pattern that’s not too wild. And both are made from Saxxon wool, which is light and resists wrinkling.
Each was $650, then got marked down to half off, and during the spring wardrobe event, the code SPWE12 takes an extra $50 off to drop then to $274.
But is that still too much? Leave your vote in the poll as well as your take in the comments.
*And for the record, you can compare apples and oranges. Or even apples and orangutans. In this case, despite all that these have going for them $274 is just going to be WAY too much for many of us, for one sport coat. So despite the sale? The Orangutan might lose out here. Sorry Louie. Save my stool next to Baloo for happy hour.
