    Does anyone know where in T.O I might find the shirt in the middle? I thought I saw one in Bloor, but I think it said "made in Asia", whereas the one pictured is one of the "Made In the U.S.A" shirts. Is the Bloor location the only store that sells that line? I don't recall seeing them at the Eaton Centre.

    A bit pricey, but I was hoping maybe they'd come down in price on boxing day. Also, has anyone actually seen the Mark Mcnairy's featured on their site? Someone here told me they were sold at the Bloor location, but I've never seen them.

    Anyone washed their dip dye fair isle yet? Does it shrink on a cold wash on the hand wash setting?

    How is the club monaco quality now a days? I've always liked the brand for their understated style and decent fit but the last time I bought stuff was circa 2000-2004. Looking back, their shirts wear down easily compared to what I typically buy now (BB, RL).

    By the way, I've always heard that CM is basically owned by the same parent company as RL?

    i think CM is a good quality when they go on sale. and yes they are owned by RL since 1999.

    Only Bloor in Toronto carries the Made in USA line.

    I hope they have an actual sale on boxing day for their regular price items instead of further discounting the sale items.

    They did last year, so I'd imagine they'd do it again this year. I know some items are already on sale. The dip dye sweater is now $99 from $129.

    Yeah, I saw quite a few items on sale at Bloor today, but not the specific items I want. I dropped by to make sure they still have what I want in my size to plan ahead for boxing day. :embar:

    I was thinking of doing the same thing on Saturday, but I'm not sure I'll bother. I'd probably hit the Queen Street store, then maybe the Eaton Centre, or Bloor. The best items might be gone after boxing day, but you could get lucky. Fall/Winter items were in stores for months afterward.

    I'm pretty sure they only sell it in the Bloor location.

    lol. I don't think so. There's really no chain / mall brand that's commonly respected here. Although it's true that Club Monaco is not derided here like Banana Republic is. CM would be more accurately described as a brand that nobody loves or cares about, yet it won't invoke ridicule either. That's hardly approval.

    I'm at Eaton Centre and I see the navy trench on sale for 199 and there's the 30% off sale items going on now.
