    @ Vicious - I'm surprised it's not in your store if you're in the DC area. I live in a part of the country where the selection in men's stores is almost never any good. But the "chambray" blazer is really nice in-person. I wouldn't have described it as "chambray" before seeing it on the website - it's just a nice-looking linen/wool. Not super dressy thanks to the linen texture, but the darker blue color would allow it to be dressed up somewhat.
    I just picked up that chambray blazer during the 40% off sale and I'm not nearly as impressed as you or Robbo. Seems kinda meh to me. I know it's chambray but it still has too much of a denim look to it for my tastes.

    No, but it might be worth $50. I'll see when it gets here. I really liked the way it looks so I want to see it in person.

    Edit: unless you're talking about the shawl collar one which would be about $80 with discounts. I ordered the zip up cardigan. They're both made with the same material though.

A trip to the tailor should fix the inconsistencies, however. Glad you found something you liked yoyo; now you just need to throw up a WIWT so we can see it in action!
    Yeah, it may just be some inconsistencies, as I even noticed one taupe 42R that fit me a slight differently than another taupe 42R. If they had multiples in the same item, I tried them all on. LOL

    And thanks, Eric F! I'll have to post some more pics, as I really just lost my WIWT-virginity this weekend. WODER!

    I am *very* happy with what I got, even though I really had my eye on that chambray blazer. Next time! Oh, and I sure spent more than I intended - oops! (just kept saying YES - ugh). Regardless, thanks so much to BR_David (and his employees), for a *major* hook-up!

    The nice thing about today's sale is that it works on literally everything but Adidas and Spanx..

    Sale/clearance and mad men included!

    sometimes (emphasis on sometimes) a BR Exclusive code will stack with their ongoing promos. Last fall I was able to get the Bridge Coat for around $110 by stacking three codes. So if there's another code floating around, it may combine.

    I have one available. BR_David passed one on and I used it Thursday. Now, for the first time ever BR sent me one so I would like to do the same to someone else that is making snug purchase. PM me

    Sorry, it went fast!

    It is *really* nice! I wanted t grab it yesterday, but it was not in-stock in-store in my size either 42R. They checked the ones on a mannequin and in the front window display, but "no-ah-ah."

    I grabbed the taupe blazer instead. I know the fits are seemingly slightly different with these various BR blazers, even though the are all labeled the same (tailored?"), but during *this* specific visit, the taupe one fit me the best. It's not my favorite color choice, as beiges kinda wash me out more than other colors, but it's a really nice piece, too. Maybe some other day the chambray one will be mine.

    I don't like the excuses everyone is giving, too typical. If it's me i'll say i've been living on the streets with no clothes so a new set of br suit will make wonders for me. Especially my street cred!
