    Has anyone tried on the new shirts from the fall collection? Specifically the Matty Oxfords? Seems like they changed the cut a bit, its more slim now but whereas the sz S used to be perfect for me, the new cut is a bit too tight. Notably the armpits is where I really feel it, it's like riding up and makes it quite uncomfortable.

    No more CM shirts for me it looks like for the next little while. [​IMG]

    If it fits like this season's madras then I'll be happy.

    FYI, markdowns are done on Tuesday around close, so basically Wednesday is when the price drops come into effect.

    A number of things were marked down today. e.g. The Xavier polos with stripes from ~$55 to $29 plus 20% off for students.

    I'm interested in the suits too. I have a wedding to attend in about a week and the suit I planned to wear was ruined.

    I'll probably stop by after work and report back.

    I went into the local store today and was DENIED student discount! The guy working there looked at the back of my ID and saw how I sharpied the date out. Wack. I wonder if they are starting to crackdown on IDs. Kind of embarassing. Oh well. Still got a madras shirt and polo for 19 each.

    I think it has to do with the Globe and Mail article that reported a lot of people use their student IDs years after graduation. It explicitly states the discount in Club Monaco and people taking advantage of it. Damn journos...LOL

    My ID is from 2004. I tried scratching the date off with a file but it didn't really work so I ended up using a sharpie. Card is already beat up.

    Haha I didn't know about the Globe and Mail article Duppy. I'm guessing it was this year? Oh well, I will see how permanent the black marker is and try to scratch that and the date out.

    I have yet to actually show an ID at Club Monaco… I always tell them I forgot it and they give me the discount every time.

    Timbaland if you write over the area with a sharpie and then quickly wipe it off with a tissue, you can remove it. Might take a couple of times.

    What shirts do they have on there? Definitely very interested, especially if they have the seersucker shirts (very unlikely, of course).
