    Yeah they usually have like 3-4 regular fit shirts in very basic patterns. No where close to the selection of the slim fits.

    Tried on that sweater after work... did not buy and probably will not even if it goes on sale. Fit is boxy and does not feel very nice.

    How are US prices compared to Canadian prices? Going to be in NYC for a few days.

    I imagine it would be a whole lot cheaper in the US... isn't everything? :brick:

    Anybody tried on the MADE IN US shirts? Do their shirts a little more relax then the slim line? As always XS is too small, and SM is too big for their shirting

    Agreed. Sweater fits decent. Not a must have, but will hunt during sales time.

    From my experience the prices are the exact same. At least in Chicago and San Fran when I visited, same tags and everything.

    I asked someone recently at the store about that and they said the sizing should be the same. I do own some of the non made in america slim fit shirts and I find they stretch out quite a bit after a day of wearing. They are usually pretty decent when I first put them on but after about an hour it feels pretty loose all over.

    I stopped by the Bloor location and apparently today was their reopening. They were giving out drinks and appetizers, and one guy was getting a haircut, while another was getting a shoe shine. The mens section looks cozy, but I think the rope for a hand rail is an accident waiting to happen. Not that you really need the hand rail, but the steps are a bit steep. Anyways, there seems to be a bit of a sale on. Think I might stop by the Fairview and pick up a sweater.

    I was actually pretty impressed with the new mens section at the Bloor location.

    they posted some pics of Bloor shop on FB, the store looks real nice. and I do agree with everyone else on this thread that CM has brought up the game this season I really want a lotta of their stuffs. I'll definitely check it out after Xmas when it goes to deep discount.

    If anyone's still interested, they had the cotton suits from the summer out today (downtown Vancouver) - ended up being $180 all in (tagged 199 and 100, -30% should have been $210 -- not sure how it ended up at $180). Not a bad deal for a casual suit.

    Oooh, this actually sounds pretty interesting. Got pictures / direct links? Also, I'd probably need a proxy.
