Brooks Brothers semi-annual sale

Brooks Brothers has posted details of their semi-annual sale at brooksbrothers.com. Everything is marked down upto 50% until January 3 plus they are offering an additional 15% off for purchases made prior to December 27, in-store or online.

Suits seem to be marked down over $300 before the extra 15%. I really love their suits and have found them to be among the best at this price point.

Expect Canadian in-store prices to be about 10% more than what you see online.

Yes, even though they have Cdn stores they fill online orders from the US and ship it up with FedEx so you not only get nailed with extra shipping you get duties, tax and the FedEx brokerage fees. Add at least 50 percent.

Yep, the same as I knew, they are using Fedex, and will do customs declaration for sure.

I prefer the stores anyways. You get free alterations and get to make sure everything looks nice.

Most of their stuff is Made in USA, so the only "duty" should be the HST.

Not for us who live in Metro Vancouver with easy access to shipping services across the border. :)

I prefer the stores for suits although for dress shirts I find more choices on line. The wrinkle free dress shirts are not made in the USA.
