This morning I had some free time so I booked an appointment at Bonobos down the block from my apartment. I have been procrastinating on buying more work pants for the past few weeks, which has become an necessity due to the increasing bulge of my gut. So I woke up, a little hung over and walked over to Crosby Street. I read some reviews on Yelp about this location, about the people being snooty and pretentious – and I was kind of expecting the same. I walked in browsed around a bit, and then was greeted by some of the staff – and contrary to the people of Yelp’s comments – everyone was really nice. Also, I picture the atmosphere being kind of one of those hard-sells where they pressure you into buying way more than you came in for, and it was not. It truly was a great experience overall.
I met with Makenzie, and after a few minutes we decided on the cut and size I should be wearing in their products. We determined their Slim Straight fit looked best, and their team began to put together some things to try on in this style. I wound up buying two pairs of their WEEKDAY WARRIORS in Friday Grey and Light Friday Grey. Since I was a new customer, they gave me the 20% of Discount – which ended up saving me $40.00 and spent a total of $155 – for two pairs, which is great. Before I left Makenzie sent me my measurements for their Weekday Warrior, Workday Wools, Dress Shirts, and Shorts – which I can then use in the future to order more products online.
When I got back to my apartment, I realized I had a 30% off discount code from a flyer they sent to me the other day. So, went online and was able to order two pairs of their HERITAGE WASHED CHINOS which were finale sale – which I didn’t mind since I had all the details of my fit from today’s appointment. The chinos were marked down from $128 to $68 a pair, and then with the Discount Code: WINTERSALE30 I got the 30% for a total of $95.00.
So in total, four pairs of great fitting well made pants for $250.00 – so it was definitely worth waking up this morning and walking over there. I definitely recommend checking out their website, but I also think it is a great idea to goto one of their locations to get the fit that suits you best. They have 11 Bononos Guideshops, two of which are located in NYC – one in Flatiron, the other in SOHO. Also, they have 1-2 day shipping, which is free, so you can’t beat that either.
