    I think. Actually, I could be completely wrong. But you said suit, so I assumed you meant the jacket and pants. It would probably be expensive, at any rate.

    The Made in America is something like $320+ for the jacket (for some reason I have $349 stuck in my head) and $249 for the trousers. I am certain the trousers are $249 because it was just that surprising for me. Looks real great though, that fabric feels incredible!


    Eaton centre has a handful of those navy cable knit cardigan/blazer chimera things as of today. Personally, I don't know why you'd want one jkjk

    SA's definitely have access to stock information of all the stores in the same country (ie. SA's in Toronto can see what is in stock in Vancouver). As far as I can tell Toronto can't see stock in the 'States.

    They will also ship articles from any store to your home for like $7 or something crazy like that.

    This is Styleforum... we think everything is too expensive for what it is. But really though, expensiveness-wise CM is generally on the same level as Jcrew... CM is maybe a hair more expensive, but CM's fabrics usually feel a little nicer too.

    Their sales don't seem quite as good as in the past though, maybe they're getting more stuff to sell at retail or first discount?

    I haven't been reading this thread and was surprised to see that they carry the Barbour motor cycle jacket. I just wanted to try it on and notice it was on sale for $299 from $429!

    They only had a 38 and I am a size 36 so the shoulders are about half/one inch long. I am thinking because its an outer jacket I can get away with it?

    I don't have a student card any more but when I asked if I can do a price adjustment they said 3rd party is not included. How strict do they enforce that policy?

    Get them to call around to other stores to find your size and ship it to the store or you directly for $7. Don't get the wrong size just because something's on sale. You'll regret it later.

    ebay has a jacket just like it, but it's $379: http://www.ebay.com/itm/BARBOUR-INT...81?pt=US_CSA_MC_Outerwear&hash=item27c34af265

    Honestly, your jacket is pretty long in the sleeves, although I suppose you get them tailored. You could probably get away with it, but a 36 would have been a perfect fit.

    Thanks you for your opinion. I am 90% sure I am going to return it.
