What kinda discount do staff get? I'm just curious.
I really like some stuff from CM, like their peccary gloves from last winter, and their Millerain fishtail also from last winter. But I have to say I've been looking at J. Crew more and more lately, for a couple reasons.
First, CM thought it was a good idea to release a whole bunch of 300-400 cashmere sweaters for the Fall/Winter season before merino/lambswool. Whereas J. Crew has a really nice "rustic merino" sweater with suedge elbow patches, which I got 2 of.
I've also found CM to be a little too plain/boring lately. But that could just be because I'm pretty stocked with my basics, so all I'm looking for is a sparing amount of stuff that are a little unusual. It's probably just my changing tastes and requirements, and nothing to do with them. Who knows.
RL/CM corporate gets 60% off non-sale items and 50% off sale items. I use my buddy's discount pretty often and bought a pair of the RRL chinos for 50 dollars a few months ago. Sick.
