    I wish they made 29 in their pants. Usually 30 is too big and 28 is ball hugging tight.

    it's weird that they don't. Why make 28 30 and 31 but not 29?

    Same here. I got some cords from them in 28, they're a good deal too tight.

    For me, the problem with pants is always the length.

    WTF. That is the easiest modification to do to a pair of pants. I even did it myself once on a cheapo pair of pants.

    No way, their pants were too large. Actually I thought all of their clothes were a little bit larger than their size indicates. Its a reason I don't shop there anymore.

    Woah, I didn't realize Club Monaco had become so expensive! Whom do they think they are anyway, J Crew? Reminds me of how J Crew thinks they can sell a $1000 jacket by claiming something like "Made in a top Italian factory", which is both generic and exotic sounding.

    You have to admit the name "Club Monaco" is an insult to the customer's intelligence. It's presumably intended to sound exotic, yet it comes of as rather Disney or mall-like. The purpose is to sound exotic, yet still seem accessible to the average guy. The name is about as bad as French Connection, which tellingly the creator of this thread compared Club Monaco to.

    Club Monaco is to fashion what the Olive Garden is to cuisine. Olive Garden likes to present itself as some higher end Italian restaurant for the everyman, while simultaneously advertising all you eat for only $7. Makes it seem like a good deal, but in reality you are being served canned soup and pre-made salad from a plastic bag.


    Lol @ classist POS selling Diesel.

    Saw some great shit on sale at club monaco. Pretty much everything from the first part of spring collection has hit sale prices. Walked out with a shawl collar harrington and a linen shirt. Their spring line is killing it. This is the jacket I got, pretty terrible picture considering its zipped weird (double zips), but it looks dope in person. Corduroy collar, fairly slim fit. [​IMG] Really close to getting this sweatshirt, has a very cool texture. Will probably pick it up if it hits sale price. [​IMG] Fall 2011 lookbook is also online for those interested: http://clubmonacolookbook.com/Fall1-2011/men.html
