    ^Can't say any other brand has a fit like CM. I was totally impressed when I tried on their chambrays/oxfords. I haven't tried the Jcrew slim line though; that might fit in a similar way though.

    Nothing in the same price range that I've found. Rugby used to be as slim but when I tried on some of their newer stuff it seems like they changed their sizing a couple years ago. Once you get to the $100-$150 range for shirts you can find similar fits: Gitman (except it has poofy back), Epaulet, WvG

    This is why I can never understand all the love for Gitman. They do often have a lot of good patterns/colors, but they poof out in the back like a motherfucker.

    I've never had the poofing problem. They don't poof out at all if they fit you properly.

    I just wish the shirts weren't so damn long, the fit is great otherwise.

    It's true. You pretty much have to tuck them in if you're not a really tall person.

    ^ Both US & CAN.

    If someone in the LA area should happen by a CM please let me know if the summer suits (Navy or Dark Brown) are on sale, tia.

    Or even someone in Canada that could proxy if they're on sale there, thanks.

    anybody know if the 30% off can be combined with the student discount?

    Coupon says cannot be combined with other offers, but I've been able to combine discounts in the past when they said that.

    Percentage discounts cannot be stacked according to the SA's, the SD only applies on regular or marked down merchandise.

    Visited the local store today (Lincoln park) and picked up a madras shirt for 19+30%off. Like some previous posters commented, the new fit for shirts is amazing. Trim and high armholes.
    The selection is kinda meh. Linen shirts are only marked down to 49. But nearly all the short-sleeved tshirts are 19 now and available in every size.
    Unlike the past when I can find pretty much everything on sale in size small and xsmall, the majority of the pieces on the sales racks are at least medium.
