    i can get a fat discount on some of their stuff, anyone know anything about this?

    i have never bought from them before and i don't believe they have stores in canada but i may want to take advantage of this discount.....

    i was looking at getting a couple suits....possibly some shirts

    only thing ive tried their is their 'slim fit' shirts. still fit me like a garbage bag.

    their suits IIRC are pretty boxy, traditional, old man status.

    Fitzgerald is their slimmest fitting suit, made in the US some are made in Italy, 1/2 canvassed, narrow lapels, made for slender builds. They're similar to Ralph Lauren Black Label suits. If you can get an 1818 Fitzgerald suit for $200, go for it. Get me one or two and I'll pay you.

    Yeah, they're slim-fit shirts are like normal fitting shirts. I like them though and like all my OTR shirts, I have them tailored.

    Wow that's a really nice discount you got. I would definitely get a few things if I were you. I don't wear a suit for work though, so I would have gotten a blazer or sports jacket. Maybe a cashmere sweater or two.

    Some things you cannot fix by tailoring. If there's no store near you to try it on, I suppose you'll want to make sure you can return it if it doesn't fit...

    ftw!

    If you can get any of these at a discount and are willing to hook it up let me know. I wear a button down pretty much every day and 75% of them are brooks brothers.
