    yeah pretty much undercuts their own denim. essentially "do you want to purchase these higher end jeans or ours for cheap" ...

    Especially when cheap is VERY relative. At $179.50 their 'Barrett' house brand selvedge denim isn't even close to being reasonable.

    Lots of better options in quality terms for just marginally more money and several options for similar quality and much lower price point.

    Oh also, historical note:

    This isn't the first time Club Monaco has undercut their own denim sales.

    Until about Fall of 2009 they had quite a good selection of Levi's 501 and 505 denim in some of their larger locations.

    That is nice. Does it fit more like a sweater or an outwear peice? Wonder if I can layer it under a jacket.

    Kinda waters down 3sixteen for me too...

    I guess I could see them carrying APCs (although everyone does); I think if you already know 3sixteen, you wouldn't necessarily go to CM to look for them.

    I'm just being salty, just got a pair of SL-100s from Self Edge and paid regular price...

    I can comment on this blazer in particular - I just bought it and I will be returning it. Construction is decent - almost on par with J Crew Ludlow model. The wool is a little too heavy and stiff though in my opinion - it doesn't know whether it's outerwear or a sport coat. The price is pretty god for what it is, but if you get it, plan on wearing it over a sweater, as it really does feel more like a coat.

    Can anybody comment on the fit of the Wright trousers?
    How does sizing run?

    They're vanity sized so size down if possible and the tight is a bit wide for my taste but otherwise decent I guess.

    I've tried them on in-store but never bought them so don't have actual measurements for you. But the pants are straight leg (not slim, no slight taper, absolutely straight). I love Club Monaco myself but I always find that the trousers don't fit me as the length seems to be much longer than other brands (I usually wear 30 x 32 myself and I find that I have to always make several large cuffs for CM chinos or get them hemmed).

    If you want a slimmer fit, the kennedy would fit better but I find it to be not as slim as other brands like W+H or LEC when comparing chinos.

    I was in the Eaton Centre store a couple nights ago, and came across this pair of burgundy gloves that were really, really, really soft. Checked the tags, it said peccary (that's when I got scared of the price) and checked the other tag, yep - $250.

    No way I'd spend that kinda money on gloves, but it's pretty amazingly soft.
