Anyone know if their shawl cardigans run TTS or slim?

It's TTS and Slim. I have 2 of them from this season.

Yeah, I'm not sure on the merino but for the thick wool and cashmere ones agree they run slightly slim tts (i.e. XS = Slim 36, etc.), be aware though that the cashmere stretches quite a bit more than the wool.

Thanks, I wanted the black in a medium but it's sold out and not sold in stores.

Will probably go on sale or get sold out. Funny I haven't seen it at the flag ship store which I frequent almost every week

Does anyone remember that craze about the Fair Isle Dip Dye Crew Neck knit a couple years back?

 

I still wear mine and it's held up surprisingly well. Comfy and warm too, bought it retail. Another other finds similar to that piece nowadays?

Are their jackets still fused?

Also, how do their casual shirts compare to BB Red Fleece and J Crew?

Their casual slim-fit shirts are almost indistinguishable from J.Crew's slim fit. Cut is identical, construction is maybe a hair better. Haven't tried Red Fleece so I can't compare, sorry.

Cut is not identical. In fact, it's a deal breaker in my case. Club Monaco slim is tighter than J.Crew slim in the shoulder and chest. Unless you have smaller shoulder and flatter chest, I suppose CM slim will look awkward on you.

CM shirts are more meticulously stitched and put together. I have said before that while there is a distinguishable difference between quality of construction on CM and J.Crew shirts, that difference is not significant. You probably should just go with what you like better.

Personally I don't have an issue with Club Monaco slim fit. I have broad shoulders too and am not that skinny. Uniqlo slim fit is tighter on me and I can't wear their slim fit in the same size as their regular fit.

I have wimpy shoulders but not a wimpy chest and pretty much all shirts fit me well expect that oxford button down that billows out. Looks good with a cardigan on though.


Have you tried the modern slim fit shirts? The arm holes are higher than the slim fits, that's the only difference I found.

Just double checked some of my J.Crew and CM shirts (all slim, size S) and the measurements are literally the same. Maybe they don't match up as closely for other sizes? Agree with you on the quality difference, CM is a tiny bit better but it's pretty negligible.

Hey, CM Modern Fit slim shirts fit me perfectly, except its a bit too long to wear untucked (it falls just past my zip). Any suggestions? I thought about just tailoring it, but the bottom button seems too close to the bottom so I felt that if I made it shorter it would look wierd :angry: . Any suggestions? Or should I just bite the bullet and try and find another brand.
