    Last time I went there was for a suit for my prom. I will never be able to comprehend how a salesman can act like he's such a big shot when he's paid, what, 12 bucks an hour? Never going there again.

    if anyone's interested, there's a sample sale happening for the next 3 days, here's a link - http://www.montrealaubaines.com/2011...u-13-mai-2011/

    i've been in the past and although i didn't find much, i went at the end of the day, so i may have missed some treasures.

    Hey, I was looking for some Oliver People's and was wondering if anyone knew if I can find the black Abrams anywhere in MontreaL?? I don't feel like going through each store and check out if they have that model.

    I'm talking about these, if anyone wanted a picture.

    Thanks!

    didnt check but the store seemed full, sales started today I think. It's not as crazy as boxing day.
    Went straight to JW and took the coat directly, was lurking it for months. Shirts from JW were gone though... Headed back to work with a smile [​IMG]
    total time in the store : 5 min ! =)

    I went with a classic: [​IMG] Damn you got the yellow model? I had my eye on it since I tried it at u&i. At simons they still have coats, one from mackintosh as well (the white with camo in the hood). Discount was -50% so I'm pretty happy about it. As for the blazer, sadly, not. They have the olive one that I wanted as well but not in my size anymore... (discounted at -40%) Might post fit pic of all my recent stuff (including two junya and two pair of CPs [​IMG]).

    Not in MTL anymore and I didn't get a chance to drop by Simons since the first Junya drop. What else is in there right now Junya-wise, you remember?

    http://www.tresbienshop.net/brand/ju...lor-jersey-top (top and pants, just one pants tho, size S, which pissed me off also. [​IMG])

    http://www.gq.com/slideshows/mens/fa...fullscreen.jpg (I think it's this shirt)

    and a few other stuff.
    Kinda too lazy to hit the laval store, where all the douchebags let the JW stuff for sure.
    Can't even think about the quebec one, where JW must be safe as well [​IMG]

    Pretty much everything at -50 or -40

    Thanks for the heads up Mesta. Do they really carry junya at the Laval location.

    Dropped by yesterday evening, picked up the light grey wool blazer in S and the red stripe dress shirt in S. My friend copped the cream Macintosh coat with camo lining in S and managed to hustle an extra 100$ off (500$) because these was some "dirt" on it (which cleaned off super easily, of course). Seems actually pretty easy to negotiate further discounts if you see anything even slightly off. Took very little effort actually, and the "manager" was no older than like 19-20 lol... Pretty much all the raincoats have a little dirt on them, so may be easy to get an additional discount. They also have the cropped levis denim and chinos in multiple sizes and a short sleeve red seersucker shirt.

    I also asked if they kept any of those white junya hangers and the SA told me they destroy all the hangers for all designers they get and use the standard Simons hangers for everything. Damn.


    Noticed they are carrying Balmain now (atrocious). Might go back this weekend as I didn't have much time to browse other collections, they seem to have quite a decent selection still.

    As a funny aside, it was pretty quiet yesterday evening, but there were still a few crazy "simons" shoppers... Lol... I had a pair of Balmain denim in my hand on the hanger, holding it up, checking it out more for curiosity purposes and this crazy dude just comes up and starts feeling the material and checking the price while I'm holding it... Lol..

    Yes they do, I remember asking and the told me yes.
    I'm way too lazy and spent enough for the spring I think [​IMG]
    Nice cops btw. Haha I actually remember the cream mac with the dirt. Damn There a mini tiny hanging thread on my coat, you think I could have something? :p
    The chinos were back in multiple sizes? really? :x

    Ho well, I'm going back at noon for lunch, it's 3 min away from the office!

    Went to Simons in carrefour laval (lol). Pretty much the same junya collection plus a few dress shirts that had sold out downtown. They had all 3 sizes of the black Mac coat (no other coats), all 3 sizes of both the green and grey blazer except no small in the grey (mannequin is wearing the M). They also carry Paul smith with all the smaller sizes gone, a huge D&G and Douche squared selection lol.. CDG H+, galliano, costume national, 2 CDG play stiped shirts but only L and XL. Picked up the junya gingham dress shirt (one of the buttons fell off and I spent 15 mins trying to get a discount but the manager was a frigid laval girl who would not budge - but at least they are repairing it). Also got a pair of CDG H+ trousers, and the junya gingham short sleve and the blue panneled dress shirt. Overall I shouldn't have gone there cause I dropped another 900$. Fck!!
