When you need five to tip a discount you're motivated to wait for more styles you really like to be released, or you get stuff you don't want. Then stuff runs out in your size. Better to just buy a few full price. Oh wait, hey maybe this is a great business idea! 

Edit: Also I do believe this is just a one week promotion. It's a really good way for people to refresh their wardrobe if they can take advantage of it.

This is a short term promo. We've run it in tbe past a couple of years ago with great success. It will go back to the 3 shirt bundle once this ends.

CT does a 3 for $100 which is much better. I would buy 5 if we had more options in my size. But if you already have a good stock, buying 5 for $200 is a bigger investment. If mix/match was an option, I would easily buy 2 polo, 2 shirt and 1 trouser!!

Already missed the linen in my size (again).

Doesn't look like there is even any white and blue to go custom.

Is a custom white and blue possible Rick?

Just to be clear, we are priced in CAD. So essentially, a $40 CAD shirt is approx. $32 USD, not to mention the detailing of our shirts we feel are superior to CT. Full Single needle stitching, pattern matching, real shell buttons, high stitch count, Wendler interlining. We feel that the overall value of our shirts is better.

 

If it were just a matter of price, we could change our buttons to acrylic, drop our stitching to 14-16 spi, stop the pattern matching and close the shirt with a double needle chain stitch. Doing this, our shirt would essentially be the same as a CT shirt and we could sell those for about $27 USD when doing a bundle deal like we are now, but that's not who we are.

 

It can be argued, that CT may be the better deal on price, but not the better deal in total Value, and that has been our goal from day 1. Be the best Value as possible. :)

Check back later today. We're going to transfer our Downtown store inventory to online. We cut a ton more, I honestly can't believe they sold this fast.

 

I'll have to check on the custom

does this mean downtown won't be getting in a supply? I was looking to just go pick it up in store when they arrived

Rick,
I wasn't commenting on the quality. I do believe your quality is better which is why I have bought 10 of yours in the last year compared to 3 of CT shirts. I was commenting on the multi buy deals where it is easier to pick up 3 shirts vs 5 shirts...

They will be there, we're just adding to the inventory. As we just opened the DT store, inventory turns are not quite where they need to be. If inventory sits, it's burning money. Better to offer it up through a channel where it will turn faster as well.

 

Linen will be delivered to the shop after 3 pm today.

No worries, I just wanted to make it clear for others that are reading.

 

As mentioned before, this is just a weekly promo. The 3 shirt deal will be back after this one ends.

Hey Rick,

Just want to confirm the chinos are still set for next week. Also, what colours will be available?

I love the 5 shirt bundle, my only issue is finding 5 button down collar shirts in stock all at once since I do not have a need for spread collars. When the linens were first in, the madras wasn't out yet (thanks for holding my order until the madras came out btw). When the madras was in, the linen was sold out. Linen is back in stock but madras is sold out. New cotton/linen coming but the new oxfords not in yet. 

 

Which reminds me Rick, we need more button down collar shirts. Lightweight chambrays (and regular weight for fall/winter), seersuckers, oxford ginghams and tattersals, solid & plaid flannels again for fall, maybe a denim shirt...

What is an appropriate tie width for your contemporary fit suits? 3"?

Rick,
The website has been majorly lagging today - I've been trying to place an order from work earlier and now from home. Not sure if anyone else has had issues...

On an unrelated note, to get the custom shirts at bundle price, you have to order multiple custom shirts? It doesn't apply if you have a mix of some custom and some OTR?

I'm not Rick, but I can tell you that you'll need to order three custom shirts at minimum to obtain the $20 discount for each one.
