BR35TREAT = 35% off &+ Select Styles Sale (both expire 4/27)
Good news and bad news here. The bad news is that the 35% off code BR35TREAT does carry with it the usual exclusions: “BR Picks, Monogram, Heritage, Men’s Performance Collection, men’s suit jackets, men’s and women’s blazers, leather apparel, cashmere, men’s Gavin, Dawson & Emerson pants…” The good news is that 35% off is pretty solid. The great news is that you can lump it on top of a bunch of select markdowns that just went live yesterday.
This one’s a little goofy because there are good markdowns on blazers, but the code won’t apply. Yet it does work on most of their pants, so while the code won’t apply to a suit jacket, it will work to double dip on matching suit pants. Got that? Confused? Me too. Off we go.
Tailored Fit Plaid Linen Blazer – $199.00 ($275)
The code won’t work here, but the markdown is decent. Now almost 30% off, and we all know that 30% off codes are all but dead for blazers and suit jackets. 100% linen exterior, but BR has a tendency to load up their interiors with poly. So, while it might be lightweight, it most likely won’t be super breezy. Got one on the way for a full review.
French Cuff Slim Fit Royal Oxford – $25.68 ($79.50)
The steal of the sale if you’re a cuff link guy. Marked way down and with the code they drop to twenty-five bucks a piece. Buy two and they ship free. The BR slim fit will still need to be brought in by a tailor for some, but if you’re always in a jacket or blazer, they’re more than workable.
Tailored slim fit stretch dress shirt – $28.93 ($59.50)
The “tailored slim” is even slimmer than their normal slim shirts. And… they could probably even come in a bit more in the chest. But they’re noticeably slimmer. Nice price now with the code.
Holden Single Monk – $81.25 ($140)
Inexpensive single monks you can afford to beat up. Reviews are all over the map, but it’s a BR shoe, so that’s almost expected. The tan has been re-stocked, and there’s a good amount of sizes for the black as well.
Vintage Straight Five-Pocket Pant – $25.68 ($79.50)
This almost seems like a mistake. Marked down to $39.50, and then dump the 35% off code on top of that? Terrific fit, nice mid-weight canvas style cloth that’s not as heavy as denim, and very similar to options from a few years back.
Vintage straight grey jean – $51.68 ($89.50)
Slub-Knit Pocket Polo – $21.13 ($44.50)
Key here is to size down. Also know that it’s more of a slub stripe. Very uniform. Not an all over slub where there’s some randomness to the variation in depth of the weave. It’s all lined up in the stripes.
Tailored Cotton/Linen Chino Suit Jacket & Matching Pant – $253.35 ($380)
The code won’t work on the jacket, but it DOES work on the pants. Pesky exclusions. Still drops it to the mid $200s, which is doable if you’re in the market for a summer suit and the tailored fit works on your frame.
Mad Men Collection Plaid Cotton Blazer – $149.99 ($198)
Also not up for the extra discount, but a rare discount on a Mad Men piece. Hat tip to James for sending in a style tip about how these might be going for (much) less in store. IF… your local brick & mortar is selling the Mad Men collection. Shades of last year’s L.E.C. Madras. Still love that thing.
The 35% off code BR35TREAT expires Sat 4/27. As do the markdowns on those select items.
