    Would having the online store really affect sales that much? Really, all it does is give you another option for buying their clothes. The only advantage would be in clothes going on sale, and people snatching them up online, but I'd be surprised if you couldn't still find stuff on sale in the actual stores.

    I'm guessing that online stock and the in store stock differs... Can't see them shipping out a pair of on sale chinos or trousers directly from a store because someone ordered that size online... IMO, they will put the brick and mortar store in higher priority than online...

    Yeah!

    People are lazy. To drive/walk into a store, sort through a disorganized mountain of crap (sales section) and picking out something that looks good + in your size takes a lot more effort than sitting behind a computer + browsing through the entire selection in less than 20s + select/click checkout.

    I can't believe some people actually buy CM at full retail too! (a lot of stuff are sold out in XS on the US site)

    Damn, that's kind of funny. :happy:


    I don't know. The site seems to be a bit buggy. If I click on my link, I'm taken to the placeholder. If I click on it again, I'm taken to the actual online store.

    This.

    It's how Barney's is... the B&M stores and the online shop are separate, with the exception that you can buy online and return in-store.

    Just went into a CM today and tried on a pair of the lightweight chino's they usually have for S/S. The navy colour caught my eye and when I walked over to them the sales told me that the Davis fit has been redesigned and are slimmer now. I also noticed that they crotch isn't as low and so the thigh areas seem to be slimmer as well which are welcome changes on my end. At $70 they are not a bad alternative to the more expensive chino's that exist, but as everyone knows, give it a bit of time and they'll either go on sale or you can get them on promotion...

    Should mention though that I've previously owned a pair of the khaki/tan coloured lightweight chino's, as well as another friend of mine, and both pairs ripped beyond repair. For me, I was actually walking around a hill-y area and needed to jump up onto a ledge when they ripped from my knee all the way up to my ass. I think my friend's ripped from consistent cycling... The lightweight fabric doesn't seem to be too durable, but should be alright for everyday activities and they are actually pretty comfy and breathable in the summer.... Just my 2 cents

    I noticed the navy ones as well. They're a nice colour. Based on your description of sizing do you suggest going up a half size from last year? I bought a grey pair and they fit well but if they're slimmer now I'm not so sure.

    Well I think it depends on how your current pair fit. The main difference I noticed in fit was with the thighs and crotch area. They moved the crotch up on the newer design and so the thighs and knee area feel slimmer now... I'd say the leg opening is the same as before. That said, the pair from last season I own are a sz 28, but I've actually put on a bit of weight and so I'm not sure how much this affected the fit, but I tried on a sz 30 and they were comfortable and the fit looked good. I was able to put the 28's on, but they looked too slim even from the knee down.

    Basically, even though I gained a bit of weight, I think it's safe to size up from your current pair (this is also what the sales told me). CM doesn't make size 29's so I wasn't able to try them on..

    Doubt I get a catch but I'll go anyway: Anybody have one of those old Club Monaco cropped Thom Browne (Juun J?) Grosgrain suits in a 36s they don't want any longer?

    The Davis slim fit chinos from this season now comes in 29 waists and 30 lengths.

    If you don't see them on the floor, ask the sales associates to check the back.

    Treat them like all other raw denim. You can hot soak at the beginning to get rid of most of the shrinkage, but after that wear them for 6+ months before washing.

    I'm surprised no one on here knows about or has mentioned the sale consolidation store.... seeing as it offers an additional 50% off ALL YEAR ROUND..... guess no one is as big of a bargain hunters as all of you rave you are. lol
