    I did this yesterday. I called in about the brown herringbone wool sportcoat. It was $280 online - 40%; $250 in store - 50%. I called the store (which doesn't stock my size) and had them order it for me from online. Typically they want you in store to do this, but because the stock was flying off the shelves (perhaps thanks to the Dappered main page), he made an exception and took my info over the phone. $125 shipped!

      Drake's sale!!! (looks like their site crashed as well)

      My lord there are some gorgeous ties on there - good thing I'm on a "new baby" budget, otherwise that would've been dangerous. Still pricey too...

        deebs and marathon, I have to admit that when I saw deebs post about this one, I instantly regretted purchasing the JC Factory brown herringbone on their sale two days prior. I still am thinking about getting that heather naval blue one, though. May have to get this brown herringbone and sell the JCF one since both are final sale.

          I have the JCF brown herringbone jacket, and FWIW there isn't a huge difference between it and the mainline model. Over the holidays, I visited a J Crew brick & mortar, and I happened to be wearing the JCF jacket. My wife saw the jacket in the store, and she was like, "Hey! You're wearing that." I held the two jackets next to eachother, and it was nearly impossible to tell them apart. The fabric felt and looked exactly the same. The mainline jacket does have pickstitching along the collar & lapels. Also, it might be half-canvassed, but the website doesn't indicate that.

            Did you try it on to see if it fit differently? My impression is that Ludlow's run significantly more slim.

              great info and thanks for that. Even though I didn't say it, I was somewhat looking for feedback on that suggestion. If that's the case, then I may just stick with the JCF at still half the price (got it for $59 while this one on sale is $125). I should get the jacket tomorrow and will be able to tell then.

              diversification, we'll see how this one fits when I get it, but I've tried Ludlows on at J. Crew before and have this one at home now (http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/s...7972/17972.jsp). For me, there's a lot to be taken in in the waist area on them (kinda like Joe says). Do you mean that you find the Ludlows to be even slimmer than the Thompsons from JCF?

                I've actually gotten most of my Drakes from Mr Porter sales or NM Last Call. If you have a good NMLC near you that gets Bergdorf stuff, they'll have some Drake's too.

                  SNOW14 knocks up to an additional 40% off selected RL sale stuff. Sandersons come down to $168.

                    Unfortunately, I don't live very close to a J.Crew or JCF, so I haven't actually tried on either of them. I was just trying to figure out which has the slimmer fit: the Ludlows or the Thompsons (higher armholes, slimmer sleeves, larger chest-to-waist drop etc).

                        I believe the ludlow has always been tailored or cinched in the back when its being shown on the site.

                          Where does the SNOW14 code work?

                            Ralph Lauren site.

                            By the way, I can't believe they're trying to sell Polo ties for around a $90 (ON SALE). I really hope no one is biting on that - for that price you could be grabbing Drakes. Yeesh.
