I've heard that it's meant to open Fall 2009. I'm not sure when the Harry rosen and the Brooks Brother's move in, but Holt's is meant to be in place by late this year. I'd like to see Holt expand it's selection when this happens. Maybe I'll start shopping there again when they have something I want. I know, totally insane concept, right?

Maybe it's a prairies thing, but Holt/Harry/Henry stick to the same formula every...

I know I'm going to be in the minority here, but my eyes have adjusted to Thom-esque proportions so the only problem I can see is how low it appears you are wearing the trousers. Otherwise I think it looks good, but if you are uncomfortable with the general look/fit there's not a lot else to say. Personally, it took me a little while to adjust to the proportions. Now everything else feels like I'm wearing a zoot suit.

If you're into that kind of stuff, this place is like finding gold in a pan of mud. That's kind of the thing about shopping in...
I think it was pretty damn cool. IMO, it's a distillation of the aesthetic to it's most pure interpretation. Pretty brilliant.

Never been to Hansen's, but I did drop by Forman's on 1st during Christmas (thanks for the tip Fidel). They had rented some space across the street...

Calgary here as well. Quote: Originally Posted by holymadness From Calgary originally, now living in Edmonton. Unfortunately, since discovering men's fashion, I have realized what a poor move that was. I wouldn't lament over that too much. Calgary lacks any stores I wish to shop in or products I wish to buy, save Alden's from O'Connors or Filson from Hansen's. Otherwise, it's pretty much homogenized dullness. One can hope the Holt and...
