    They have a couple left at Eaton Centre in Toronto. Stock is left from last season. I think they only get one size run in and that is it.

    The Robson St. store in Vancouver has the Davis cut in khaki, medium grey, and charcoal for $49 -30%.
    I actually like the Davis fit a lot (although my WH chinos are still the best fitting).
    Lots of discounted linen and oxford shirts as well.


    I just bought the Davis grey wool pants last week. I'm not sure why some people don't like the fit of the Davis. It's very slim fitting with a low-medium rise. It's my first odd trouser, and the price was reasonable after applying my student discount to the marked down price. It was my first CM purchase as I generally don't like their items and their price point. But lately I have been checking them out since you guys mentioned that their stuff is discounted quite often, and the fit is good.

    Which model/style of CM pants do you guys recommend as I'm looking for some more trousers.

    I can also vouch for the davis... I sized down 2 in the chinos and wool pants. Fit is similar to wings and horns chinos.

    How much did you pick them up for? They were still $89 at my local store.

    I've only seen the Davis and Kennedy fit pants recently. They had a Wright fit before but I don't recall seeing it this year. Don't get the Kennedy, it is regular fit and I'd say it fits along the lines of 501s. I sized down 2 and the legs were still too big for my taste.

    Went and looked the other day, I really liked some of the stuff there but their classic fit oxford was blousing even in an extra small. I'm a slim guy but still I didn't like the fit at all.

    Did they have any slim fit oxford's to try on? I have a few slim fit ocbd's in XS and they actually fit quite slim.

    Only in medium, otherwise I would've picked one up. How do the shoulders fit comparatively? Will they hit the same point on a slim vs a classic fit?

    I'm not sure, I've never tried on any of the classic fits, just the slim.

    Anybody that works in CM around here? I need something for next week, but want to know if/when they'll go on sale.

    I used my student discount so I got it for 20% off the $89 sale price. I haven't found a decent slim fitting wool pants under $100 so I bit the bullet and paid $80 after tax. They also had 100% cotton dress pants, and a 100% polyester pants which I wouldn't touch with a 10 foot pole. Edit- I forgot to mention that I had to size down from my usual 30 to a 28.

    Picked up a pair of the terry cotton shorts for $19 + student discount. Feels nice, and quite a bit cheaper then the W+H one. Also, they have quite a few madras shirts down to $39.

    I also saw a blazer I had picked up about a month ago that was now $99, down from the $150 I got it at... Thats life I suppose.

    just bought a couple pairs shorts at 19 (don't wear shorts much so won't shell out for them) and some cotton crew sweaters at 29, fit is good and I won't feel guilty about throwing away after I go to miami in sept and inevitably destroy it all. As disposable clothing goes, this stuff is pretty unbeatable.
