Seems like it was removed. Maybe people were pointing to DDMS when calling Brooks Brothers lol.


 @Dan any professional opinions?

Bump @Dan why was main post removed?

Just go with tyrwhitt.

I ordered a couple of Brooks Brothers shirts during the Black Friday sale and tbqh, they are nothing compared to what they were years ago. They are thin and cheap , poor quality.

And these were the retail ones.
I like my Tyrwhitts. Can't seem to find them for less than $40+ though.


https://www.costco.com/kirkland-signature-men's-tailored-fit-dress-shirt---exact-sleeve-length.product.100047041.html  $19.99
$25 off 5
$60 off 10
Nice. I typically prefer more of a patterned weave but I'll keep these in mind.

Cease and desist.

Thought something like that.

Let's hope they end up honoring.

You think that's a possibility? Even if orders are canceled?

It's one thing to send a C&D and cancel everyone's orders, but very unprofessional to not have any correspondence to customers who's orders were canceled explaining the situation and rationale...  They have an opportunity to control the narrative and at least try to spin it favorably to their customers... wasted opportunity in my view...

Recived a out of stock email. So they canceled everything

"SORRY, BUT WE'RE SOLD OUT.

Dear ,
An item you ordered proved to be even more popular than we anticipated, and we are currently sold out. Since your order hasn't shipped, your original form of payment has not been charged. If you would like our help in trying to find something similar, please do not hesitate to contact us at 800-274-1815 or service@brooksbrothers.com.

We apologize for the inconvenience. We hope to see you again soon.

Sincerely,
Brooks Brothers"

I was thinking the same. Every time a retailer cancels my order with zero communication, it leaves me feeling off about them. If I'm not checking up on it, I'd still be waiting for them to arrive at my door. Maybe I'll call BB now and ask them why my order hasn't arrived yet and see what they say.

so i just called them (GASP!!!)
they received thousands of orders using these codes (surprise surprise)
They received dozens of calls yesterday asking why order price was different than checkout price
codes werent really valid
everyones getting cancelled
they *claim* i can maybe get my gc value refunded. but seriously doubt that.
They offered my 15% off as courtesy.

edit: Theyre official reason for cancelling was that there is no more in stock. only after showing them that there was was the real reason shared. Also, there is ZERO hope of reinstatement as once cancelled they cannot even see the price paid. and the email confirmation wont help here because, well, its not the real price.

I was just wondering on what legal basis? Nothing you were doing can be construed as illegal.

It will cost money to defend law suit
