As long as I'm here and we're talking about J. Crew, I think that Banana Republic should change the fruit in the name to the indigenous fruit of the locale in which the BR store is located.

So, in Canada, it would be called, Donut Republic.

Opinions?

We are such an easy target, I'm surprised that more isn't made of it.

It would seem that the collective IQ of our fair country went up about 40 points the day you left.

That is very uniquely Canadian style. Is it Made in China?

The outdoor chic thing is really big in Canada, the Mountain Equipment Coop style can be seen everywhere. Outside of the bigger Canadian cities, I can't see how American stores like J Crew or Brooks Brothers can survive, there is not enough demand and population density to support those types of stores. However places like Toronto will welcome a J Crew with open arms, I think I saw a BB in Toronto a while back, so if BB is sustainable, J Crew will be too.

Trying to define a "Canadian" style would be about as successful as trying to define an "American" style which is inclusive of Utah, NY and California.

There are differences between downtown and suburbs, much less city to city and province to province (or state to state if you will).

When I first came to this forum in hopes of learning how to acquire good clothing, I was told that Canada is mostly a wasteland in terms of having any to offer, with the exceptions of Holt Renfrew and Harry Rosen, which offer good clothing at ludicrous prices.

Therefore, I don't see how Canadians can be seen as being slower to purchase good clothing considering that they don't have much opportunity to buy any in Canada.

Moreover, for those reasons, I find this quotation highly confusing:

Quote:
with a preference for higher-quality goods

If Canadians have a preference for higher-quality goods, then why do very few places in Canada sell any!

Why do I have to buy all my good clothes on sf and eBAY?

It sure would be nice if Canada had stores like Daffy's etc. where I can buy high-quality clothing for cheap prices.

Win.
