The Promenade club monaco is going to close on sunday for 3 weeks due to reno's so that is why this specific store is at an additional 50%.

On a side note, the club monaco at Yonge and Lawerence has a lot more stuff with significant mark downs but unfortunately no additional 50%. If you are a student you can use your student card for an additional 20% off.

The key is patience.

Yeah their retail is jsut way too expensive. Their stuff has improve leaps and bounds. Can't fit their shits though, xs is too tight and sm is too big. Wanna grab some knits when they go into deep discount.

Yea I definitely like the materials and their generally slim cuts, but with stuff being made in China, I can't bring myself to ever pay over half of what they ask for.

I also dread the days when I can't use my student discount anymore.

Yeah, I don't understand why stores like CM and Allsaints etc make their retail prices so ridiculously high when it seems nobody is willing to pay that much? I mean if you go into the store when there isn't a big sale going on you can practically hear crickets chirping. As opposed to say H&M where the prices reflect the reality of the level of quality, so it is flying off the shelves on any given day.

I think it's a brand image thing, the high MSRP makes people feel like they're not shopping at a bottom-tier retailer.

Meh im pantient so i can wait without the student discount. Always been able to find the items I'm looking for. I got two of their wool trosers this year for like 70 bucks each which I think its fair. Sweater was like for 40 bucks. Their ties are not that bad either...

heres a pic:


the arms run a bit long, and this shirt could be a little slimmer. its a size M

I got this shirt for $29. a couple of weeks ago in SF. I didn't like it on me (just not my color I guess) so I gave it to friend.

I'll agree that the prices are FAR too high for what they offer. The only reason why I buy stuff from there is because I work there and get a generous discount. If not, I wouldn't step foot in there. If they had mall-brand prices, there's no doubt in my mind that they would be huge and stuff would fly off the shelves.

I go directly to the sales area. Have found great stuff for the price and hardly even look at the regular priced stuff.
post #205 of 1924
Club Monaco stuff ALWAYS goes on sale. They usually have pretty nice stuff for a mall brand, not worth it at full retail tough.

dropped by a store today, bunch of shirts on clearance.... $19 plaids $9 flannels (not inc. student discount). grabbed three of the flannels. The LP store in Chicago still had a bunch left for anyone interested, especially in size small.

Got a pair of beige corduroys the other day, discounted from 80$ to 29$. Good cop, slim straight, too bad it's a tad bit baggy for my liking though (I'd like it more if it were even slimmer or tapered) Still, 29$ isn't bad at all!

They have nice colored jeans for $39, or around $30 after student discount. They are the slim straight fit and come in black, grey, and dark blue. I got the greys, nice summer weight jean in a simple wash. Lots of the spring summer stuff looks pretty damn good. The sweatshorts are freaking awesome, but I wouldnt pay without using the student discount. Also, the outerwear from fall is on sale but there are many spring-weight jackets so they can be used for the upcoming season. I love the duck canvas jacket but hate that its a shawl collar, if it was normal itd be an instakop.

What is typical pricing for a button-down shirt at CM on sale? I've only walked in the store once and pretty much was disgusted that simple BD's were like $80.
post #210 of 1924
Most shirts will get down to at least $30-$40, but I've seen them go for as low as $10
