    Why didn't you just try them on since you were in the store? I tried on some of their slim chinos a year ago so not sure the sizing would be the same but I went down 2 sizes from a 33 to a 31 and it fit slim on me. I'd say the leg opening was 8".
    they have a different cut now. The davis? I think, and it is slimmer + lower rise than the other cuts, I believe its the one that's on special. They still have chinos in the less slim cut though. Yeah for their "kennedy" cut I usually size down two, which works surprisingly well... after sizing down its pretty slim and tapered w/out any weird proportions or pulling (at least for me). EDIT: for dr who - size down two on the 'kennedy' fit, the davis is TTS.

    Definitely not super slim, but I really like how they fit nonetheless. My 28s have a 8" hem. Actual measurement is 15.5" across the waist.

    I think you tried on the fuller fit ones....?

    I thought about it, but once I picked up a 32 and thought they didn't look slim I didn't bother. Will try them on next time.

    The $49 ones a Square One CM were the Kennedy's which were not very slim (I'm naturally a Sz28/29 so I couldn't try sizing down). They didn't seem to have the slimmer fit... Is the name "Davis" for these?

    Also, just a quick question... CM always has these little posters in their fitting rooms that alterations "are on us (them)". Do they hem shirts and is it still free or does it only apply to certain articles of clothing? I'm not too tall, but their slim flannels usually fit pretty well in the chest, but are too long for me... even tucking them is a bit of hassle cause it kinda bunches LOL

    yeah at one store near me its the kennedy ones on special, at the other its the davis..

    For the hemming- I would imagine its only pants... regardless I'm pretty sure its only for full price items. Which is understandable, it wouldn't make sense for them to provide free hemming on $19 clearance pants

    Just got back from the SF store. Went to Jcrew as well. I def prefer what I saw in the CM for S/S 2011. I bought a really nice summer chambray with a minimal pattern on sale. I def think they have better stuff than Jcrew for spring/summer this year.

    How much was the chambray? I'm thinking the store in San Jose doesn't update the prices on their clothes that often. I bought a flannel from them marked as $29 for $9 (using no discount), which is what others on here said they were on sale for.

    Does anybody know where I can get the Indigo Dyed T-shirt in Toronto? I was at the Yonge and Lawerence location the other day and they only had the long sleeve version for $19.

    If we're thinking of the same thing try the Eaton Centre location.

    Anyone know if those crewneck sweaters they have are on sale yet? I think they run about $79, I went to the Square One CM about 2 weeks ago and they moved them into the sale section yet they were still regular price.

    What do you guys think about the leather windbreaker? I like that the color is more of a lighter, creamy brown, as opposed to the typical darker colors...and that it has a slim fit. Not overstufffed with motorcycle zippers and shÃt...simple, classic.

    Looks ugly in first pic, but nice oiliness + contrast with blue in the stock pic.

    ^Hah. I had the same thought. It could be nice, but it could also look like Buffalo Bill made it.

    EDIT: for dr who - size down two on the 'kennedy' fit, the davis is TTS.

    I ended up going back and getting the Davis in gray. They fit pretty well, much slimmer than I thought they would be. But as for them being TTS, this was not the case with the pair I bought. I bought a 31 x 32, and the waist measured to be more of a 34. A real 31 would never fit me.

    By the way, does anyone know if this cardigan is still available? I'll have to use this recent pic of mellowfellow, as I don't know the name of the cardigan itself. I thought it looked familiar and when someone pointed out it was from Club Monaco, I remembered seeing it in stores. Passed up on it the first time but I really like the color and style. I assume they're probably sold out?
