I don't know why anyone would buy anything for full retail there. If you wait three weeks it'll go on sale. I've had pretty good luck with their sweaters and knits in general, but that's about it. Pants never fit right. Shirts sometimes fit well. The overall aesthetic seems like a good idea, but I rarely find things I'm willing to spend the money on (even on sale). By the way, I hate that Thom Browne shit. It looks like fucking Pee Wee Herman is designing it.

I like their OCBDs - as many before me have mentioned, when shit goes on sale at CM it really goes on sale.

Dropped by one of the stores today for the first time since the summer.

-the tweedish sportcoat AR mentioned looks pretty decent, will probably grab once it goes on sale - especially since the stores near me always have xs/36s.

-their shirts fit much better than they used to, the new 'slim' cut is alot better than the old one. The xs in the slim-fit is a lot like my BoO smalls except a bit narrower in the shoulders. Unfortunately they only offer it for the patterned/striped shirts and not for the solid color oxfords.

grabbed a slim military-ish style shirt that was on clearance; also a soft shouldered cord sportcoat they had on sale- pretty good fit and had working button holes w/ leather buttons

Their old stuff used to be really cool and always stocked up on their basics whether it being their button ups/t shirts and sweaters but after a while their stuff turned a little dingy
I still have a handfull of clothes now that have actually stood the test of time and look as good as new..The clothes fit me perfectly then and had a slim cut before everyone had slim cuts but now I think they make their clothes for tiny asian men,Which is all I see shopping there anyways now
But if you have money to blow and the fit is right go for them..qualitys pretty good for basics and I think is better than:gap,BR,Polo.


they are nothing like abaercrombie, they have the decency to not have lame logos on their stuff :p

This was the one piece that stuck out to me. I thought the tweed that AR was talking about was nice but I wasn't overly impressed with the quality of the material. But I want that camel cableknit cashmere v-neck so fucking bad though.

^^ Not sure I like the toggle buttons on it but it's not bad. See how it looks in store before buying. Pictures can be deceiving. Looks like they're copying the aesthetic here a little with selvedge jawnz, chukkas, and a shawl collar cardigan.
