Club Monaco: Adventures in decent clothing and horrible marketing - Page 125

post #1861 of 2091

So what is the general thought of CM on SF? 7 out of 10 quality, with horrible marketing? 

post #1862 of 2091

CM, never purchased anything from there.. although i have seen a couple pieces here and there but never pulled the trigger..

It's an extension of Polo so not totally different from that... I'd say it's definitely a large step up from H&M and Zara and the like. They produce some fashion forward stuff without usually going into silly territory. Actually most of their stuff is pretty classic and each season is fairly consistent to the last. The quality of materials and construction is usually good but basic, nothing fancy but I've never had any issues and I'd say 50-60% of my wardrobe is from them. They also stock and collaborate with several SF approved brands. Most importantly, their full retail prices are too high but they always always come way down. I regularly pick up shirts and pants there for $20-30 and often jackets for about $50-60 and sportscoats and dress pants (or suit seperates) for about $80-100. Usually 50-70% off full retail. I find their stuff pretty classic in terms of cuts, colors, etc with a little mix of fashion in there. TBH I'm more suprised their stuff isn't mentioned or shown in WAYW. I'm convinced most of my stuff would pass for APC if you didn't see the label.

I used to have a major hate on for Club Monaco but now I can't go in there without buying 3-4 things. It's definitely my favourite mid-tier brand.

What this young man said.

My casual wardrobe is 95% Club Monaco. Their fit along with J crew is bang on for off the rack

blah I'm a consumer whore... pulled the trigger. Not a screaming good deal but I like it (have last season's one all navy with knitted sleeves. Hoping it's burgundy and navy, not brown and navy


post #1867 of 2091
I just received that one!

Its a deep burgundy and navy sleeves. Fairly lightweight, expected full quilting lining but a nice jacket none the less.

Can anyone comment on the backpacks? Are they decent?

Nice pickup. I would definitely be copping one or even two Grant suits on clearance if they fit me better. Unfortunately, they flare out at the chest/lapels. I spoke with a SA at the 5th Ave NY location and was told that lots of guys have this same problem with the Grant fit. My tailor couldn't fix the problem either. Anyone on here notice this fitment issue?

I was looking at that earlier today. I really wanted to get the trousers, but wouldn't want to risk the jacket.

Are the trousers vanity sized?

Yep


Just got back from Eaton centre. It was a mad house in there with the sales going on

My actual waist is about 31.5 or so. Would the 32 work if I took it in you think? I figure the 28 might be too small to let out enough?

yeah i have the same issue with their suiting and the lapels not sitting flat. the wright cut is a little better with that problem, but its still there.
