Rooster, if you read my post, you will note that I specifically told him he might want to consider doubling his budget re: Rosen, though as you yourself just noted, there are sales (i.e., a blazer within his budget, exactly, and it does happen) All fun aside, you yourself need to check out Vaughan Mills; a friend of mine returned with 2 Armani blazers, and a HB blazer for about 100 each (pre-tax). I couldn't believe it myself, so went up to Vaughan (this was during...
iroh, Why don't you try the Holt Renfrew outlet at Vaughan Mills? It's a bit of a hit-and-miss up there, and whilst they've a limited selection for men as compared to women, there are wonderful bargains to be had. They carry all the major designers of course, and at your price range, you could easily pick up any of them--or even 3--since they're discounted at up to 90-percent off retail, at times, assuming that you can find your size. Other major designers are also up...

Ah, but we've wonderful new tech toys, like iPods and...
^ Thanks for the rec, and glad I found this thread. Having returned to the City only somewhat recently after a lengthy absence for work, etc., I'm finding that while foodie staples (like Canoe, Barberians, etc.) remain, that much has changed. For e.g., Rosewater, Anthony's, the Eddie, etc. At one time they were excellent, but alas not at all anymore, becoming over-priced tourist traps, I see. Then, there was this place in uptown which was quite frankly wonderful (near...

@ GQ: Fair enough re: "just out on the street in Montreal," but that is likewise true of all places Much of my family is there, and where I spent a good part of my childhood. I visit many times throughout the year, and have noticed in recent years that, dans Ste. Catherine (the main strip), people are dressed in the moto-cowboy fad which really seemed to take hold this past summer (then, this is also true in Paris, exact same thing going on over there, or so I found...
lol @ Neo Pantisocrat: if you speak French, then Quebec City is a wonderful place. In Montreal, as is the case for all of Quebec, they of course speak French as their first language, too, but it's more cosmopolitan such that you shouldn't have any difficulties if you don't speak French fluently. In terms of "hot", well, I may be biased as a Canadian but, frankly, this is a good-looking country for the most part. In Montreal especially, where people are very active and...
^ I agree. Whilst it is OK for a woman to wear a black suit to an interview, it isn't considered appropriate for a man to do. There are a lot of rules tied to this, primarily b/c the colour black is, outside the clergy and judiciary (who are robed), reserved for formal wear. So, unless you're interviewing for a judicial/priest/etc. position, I'd caution against a black suit for an interview, and instead opt for a blue suit (synonymous with leadership, safety and loyalty,...
