Club Monaco: Adventures in decent clothing and horrible marketing - Page 144

The MIA blazers are a steal right now with the extra 40 off.  Ordered a dark green cashmere blazer for $60 with an original $750 price tag. I did have a question, who manufactures these blazers/suits?

Most likely some Ralph Lauren factory in the US. After all, they own Club Monaco.

My thought was that it was Southwick, as I've seen fabrics at Club Monaco that I've seen at Epaulet's site for their MTO blazers. On one of the labels of a MIA blazer, the item code also began with SW, which made me think my suspicions were right.

Or there could just be multiple US factories/companies that make them too.

With Epaulet blazers coming in at $800 pretty soon, definitely looking to CM more.

Oh, and on the label of a MIA shirt I saw it said Made in Ashland, which is where Gitman is located.

Can anyone else confirm going up one chest size and going long? I do have broader shoulders for my frame and I know that CM usually fits slim...but wouldn't the sleeve length be too long?

I definitely wouldn't size up.

I got this exact jacket in 38R (also ordered the 40S) and I found the 38 fit better. For reference I am a 38. Also keep in mind though, this was unlined so it might have had a bit more room in the chest. For fully lined jackets, perhaps its different.

 

Anyways, as long as its not on clearance I believe, you can return the items for up to 14 days for full refund, so just order it and if it is not what you like, you can easily send it back. If you have a local store, it is much easier. This is in Canada at least, so I assume the US would be the same, if not better.

So I ordered a 38R and 40L and as expected, the 38R was too cramped for the shoulders and jacket length too short (I am usually a 38-39R depending on the brand) but sleeves were ok. The 40L fit shoulders well and jacket length was good, but waist was too big and so were the sleeves. In all, it'll be hard to find a traditional fit with the CM suit jackets due to their shortened jacket length

The waist and sleeves are very easy to fix at a tailor. I've found it impossible to find something that fits perfectly right off the rack, and always get my stuff fixed up at a tailor.
