Is Brooks Brothers Shirts are in sale ?

Post by LiveSimple » Mon Apr 15, 2019 9:26 am

Planning to buy a few shirts from Brooks Brothers ( never purchased any till now ? )

Do see 4 shirts for $199, is this the best sale ? Or when to expect the great sale ?

$50 for a shirt seems expensive. Look at these for a comparison...

I like BB. Try them, if you like the fit buy them. I have some that are 8 years old, and don't show it. I still use them. I have had a pant go 'bad' I can't remember, whether it was the chain that got damaged, or something else. I contacted their CS and they returned me my money back! I went and bought more clothes from them with that money.

Do you have a outlet? They sell a line in outlet that isn't available in their retail stores, and I don't mind those too. I think its called 346 line.

$50/shirt is a pretty good price for Brooks Brothers. You may find some closeouts at a lower clearance price at some point.

They have outlet stores where the price is less expensive.

The shirts in the outlet store are not the same as the retail shirts (exception being true clearance items but those will likely be orange, pink, or sea green).

You may want to start with one shirt first and see how it goes.

Brooks Brothers shirts today are not the same as what they were in the past. I received two of them as gifts a few years ago, and both fell apart after only a year of regular wear. My $20 Van Heusen shirts on the other hand are still going strong at 5+ years.

Yes I use Van Heusen shirts for long; just thought to have a lifestyle creep, by going to Brooks Brothers

1818 line is very solid. The 346 is much worse and what you will find in outlet stores.

I switched from Brooks Brothers to Charles Tyrwhitt a few years ago. I think the CT shirts are at least as good as Brooks Brothers, and are significantly cheaper. You should be able to find a link or code allowing you to buy 3 shirts for $99.

I am a big fan of Tyrwhitt shirts (haven't tried Brooks Brothers). They last a long time and can often be had for about $35 a shirt.

I prefer CT to regular Brooks Brothers. The latter feels quite thin and offers fewer choices re: colors and patterns.

Almost all CT shirts come in three fits, and each of those is available as double cuff or regular cuff.

you just missed the additional 20% sale on top of the 4 for $199 deal; it ended a week ago.

Right now, card holders get $100 off $300 purchase or $200 off $500 purchase; so another way to save a bit more. New card holders get 15% off all purchases, though i'm not sure if one could stack the coupons.

But even with these discounts, i'd still go to Tyrwhitt. I say this as someone who buys quite a bit of BB stuff (on discount, of course) for me and my partner , and I just don't find their dress shirts to be worth the price.

+1 for Tyrwhitt. Good material and tailoring, durable. I feel they are a better value than BB, who also offer a fine product but typically at a higher price point for the more or less equivalent products.

I'm a BB fan and the 4 for $200 deal is terrific. I bought a few Thyrwitt shirts but found the cuffs far too tight for my wrists, something I have never experienced with any other shirts...this was 7 or 8 years ago so maybe they've changed?

That’s a good price. It’s what I hold out for when I’m waiting to buy. Which is infrequent because they last a long time. You can occasionally do better, but this is a good one. I have Brooks Brothers, Nordstrom, and Tyrhwitt dress shirts in my closet. The brooks brothers are the nicest and fit the best. The Tyhrwitts are fine and a decent value, but I don’t think the shoulders fit fit my builds quite as well, and the collars site a little high for my tastes. So obviously there is an element of what fits you best.
Pardon typos, I'm probably using my fat thumbs on a tiny phone.
