It’s on sale: Brooks Brothers menswear staples — Today starts the Brooks Brothers Friends & Family sale: 25% off all items with code FNFBB1 through May 12. It even seems to apply toward sale items and Black Fleece.
While seasonal items are probably of interest to many, I’m partial to the basics that never hit the post-seasonal clearance racks. Now is a good time to buy if you’re in the market for these items.
My recommendation is to stock up on Brooks Brothers Extra-Slim Fit Oxford Cloth Button-Down dress shirts, which come to around $55 each (including tax and shipping) if you buy three or more. Don’t forget they come in university stripes, too, as well as solids. For the quality of the fabric, construction and fit, you won’t find a better deal off the rack in my opinion.
In terms of other staples, check out their 3/2-roll navy blazer in a traditional sack cut with patch pockets and Loro Piana fabric. It’s probably my favorite style of their offered blazers. And suits, like the Fitzgerald 1818, are also double-discounted when you buy two or more.
And if you live where it’s bound to get sweaty and gross this summer, then pick up some linen shirts, and spare yourself the heat exhaustion of wearing heavier, less-breathable cotton shirts.
