    I was getting stoked when all the new lookbooks had the matty oxford in them; I have a blue one and a blue uni. stripe one that I love.

    I got a chance to look at them real up close today and those collars are insanely small, they make the LEC collars look normal! so disappointing!

    I think the fabric is also much less substantial than my old matty and reece oxfords.

    At least the price has gone down $5.

    I think the matty shirt has 2 versions, one is for summer(thinner) and one is for winter.
    The summer version is on sale now

    Would anyone chime in to describe the CM pant fits? (Davis and etc.)

    I'm looking for slim fit dress trousers but I don't know their nomenclature.

    Sorry, I missed this comment. Sure, Toronto has gotten better with Nomad, Dutil, etc.

    The issue is that our selections are tiny, prices are 20-30% higher than comparable retailers in NYC. I dunno, not trying to sound like a d-bag, but after hitting up Tokyo, London, Paris, NYC, Chicago, HK in the last 8 months, it's really hard to get excited about the 5-6 racks of SF-approved clothing at the Bay. Anyhow as I said in my original post, I am loving the new CM men's section. :)

    Club Monaco is having a sale this weekend...probably just 20-30% off. However, I went into a store in Socal and they had the sale stuff out already. Grabbed the dip dye fair isle for $100...only had med and larges. Davis chinos were also marked down to 45 or 50.

    If anyone has seen the new stuff they're trying out on Bloor in Toronto, how did you find it? I was thoroughly impressed. Its not unbearable to be there now!

    Edit: I should add that apparently they are collaborating with Alex Carleton of L.L. Bean Signature for the interior design of their stores. Trying it out in Toronto, then NY, then everywhere else. So strange for it to come here first, but tis definitely cool.

    They carry Tanner Goods, Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots, Barbour, various other brands in that sort of territory along with vintage books and watches. The women's section carries vintage hermes scarves amongst other things. There are old books everywhere lining the walls, nautical paraphernalia, telescopes etc. Really bizarre.

    ANND im two weeks late.

    Sorry, didn't see any cashmere sweaters...there were some cheaper ones marked down to $49 but they weren't cashmere.

    Does the Bloor store carry Trickers? They have pictures of them in the lookbook but they aren't listed on the site. The site sucks so it's impossible to tell what they have.

    Yes, they have Tricker's, but only a very small offering
