    I love shopping at CM. They're the sophisticated, but lesser quality of the brands that I actually wish I can shell out on. My only problem with them is that their items tend to be a bit overpriced at full retail, knowing that I can get something better. Their sales are decent... but I wish they would mark down their prices right now.

    Their full retail stuff is generally ridiculous.

    But definitely worth buying when 2+ or more markdowns + student discount.

    The shirt is awesome and is reminiscent of w+h ss 12. I've never seen the shirt in store before. If anyone is selling one, I'd gladly kop it. :) Need a Medium.

    Agreed.
    Wait a minute. You were able to use your student discount on a sale item? CM employee told me the other day that he could only give me student discount on non-discounted stuff. :plain:

    They need to establish some consistency with their pricing.

    Sounds BS, you can use your student discount on sale items. Except when there's already a promotion going on (ex: -30% off sale items)

    Saw the new collection at Bloor. Was browsing through it and was told that it could be arranged for me to buy a piece early, if I so desired. Said no thanks, as I didn't really see anything I wanted, plus I'm not sure I'd buy at full price if I did.

    Agreed. Look at their shirts. Quality is mediocre, but the designs are nice. Then there comes the price; I'd rather pay retail for higher quality brand shirts (i.e. Gitman) then pay $100 at CM.

    It most likely is BS.


    You can buy 3 CM shirts for the price of 1 Gitman Vintage if you use a student discount. That's very enticing when you're building up your wardrobe.

    Not sure if this has been asked but can you use the student discount on sale items?

    yes. only exceptions are event days, boxing day etc, ie 'one day only' additional markdowns. In this situation they will let you choose the greater of the two.

    ^ Yes you can. If there are in store specials like 30% or 40% off sale items then it does not stack on top of those.

    Hm, looks like the CM online shop is almost ready to roll. Went to the website and they've closed off all the content - it just says the shop is coming.

    A great thing in terms of being able to view their whole collection easily, but if the website doesn't factor in my student discount, I won't be buying from there. Got to take advantage of my student status while it lasts!

    So apparently the site won't be operational until March 26, and that's in the U.S. Canada will have to wait until April 11.
