    This is a local PSA for the Club Monaco flagship store on 5th avenue and 21st street in NY.

    They have Barbour International jackets in Black for $299. Not sure if the additional 30% off they are doing applies to it. Pretty full size run. As of yesterday when I visited they had 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44.

    They also had a Navy Bedale in 42 for $379.

    How does Grant compare to the Wright fit? I love the Wright fit trousers, but I feel like that jackets are a little too slim for me.

    My impression...

    They are both pretty slim with the jacket of the Grant slightly longer and just a smidgen less slim.

    The filling is a synthetic, not down, so it's not as warm as it could be, but it's good enough for San Francisco at night, and with a sweater, it's pretty good. For Northern California, I would say it's almost perfect. If you are on the East coast, you will need a coat over it.

    It's more black than blue - in full light, it has just a slight hint of blue, but it's really black for all intents and purposes.

    Just bought some Chino's from the eaton's location... The Kennedy fit.

    It's on sale from $69.50 to $49.

    Got a pair in blue. Lots of sizes remain

    Heads up :)

    Thanks for the heads up. I've been meaning to pick up the Davis fit, and remember buying a pair at $49. Out of curiosity, how is the Kennedy fit compared to the Davis fit?

    I tried the Davis first and to me it was too tapered and too short. I"m usually a 32 inch inseam but i felt it wasn't long enough, some on SF might like a tad shorter but I like my pants fitting on top of the shoe heel.

    The davis is certainly slimmer in the leg as it's a slim fit and the Kennedy is a straight fit. I felt more comfortable in the Kennedy so I went with that.

    It should shrink a tad in the wash though. I'll post pics in a few weeks after my cruise. Love the quality of both.

    Edit, the Dockers Alpha Khakis are great, not too slim and not loose at all. Try those on for size

    Well, as I mentioned in my previous post, I already own a pair of the Davis fit. Was just hoping to get a pair in a darker color. I find the pants are long enough on me, and I don't mind that they taper a bit. Actually, I thought maybe the Kennedy fit would be slimmer.

    As for those Dockers, I think I actually tried on a pair the other day, but found they weren't all that comfortable. It felt like there was not enough room in the crotch, or that they hung too low. And unlike Club Monaco, the pants didn't come in an in between size, so sizing up they felt too big. And I'm not sure those pants can be tailored, either. A few months ago I was in need of some pants, and bought a pair from the Gap to wear to a baptism the next day. They didn't have my size, so I sized down. They were adequate for the day, but later I found they were too tight. Unfortunately, they are the type of pants that can't be tailored at all, as there was no letting out in the waist. Probably would fit well had I been able to find a larger size.

    I just wore them for a little bit and it feels good. You're right the Alpha's are sorta low rise ish? But for the price it was good. Either way, You can't go wrong with the Davis or Kennedy. Again, I went with was more comfortable for me.

    Next up I'll be getting some sweaters. I wish I knew someone who worked there

    Stopped by the Bloor location today. It seems as if the Davis fit has not been marked down yet as it was still listed at $69. Also stopped by the Bay and picked up the Dockers, but didn't try them on again. Those are listed at $79.

    The bay had a 30% off last week. Strange how they wouldn't mark down the davis. I can check tomorrow for you if they did indeed mark it down tomorrow.

    I wore the Kennedy for an entire day and man do I love the quality of these things, can't go wrong for the price point.

    Do you mean the Dockers? I tried them on again today. They're actually pretty tapered, more so than the Davis fit. I wonder if they would stretch, because with my belly, there's not much room in the waist, and the size up is quite a bit bigger.

    I'd image all pants do stretch.
