    $300+tax, afaik only available in charcoal and only in certain locations, fucking thick and silky smooth though, totally worth it imo, even better if it goes on sale.

    That explains why I didn't see them in my local stores.

    Out of 4 locations I checked out recently only 1 had it, and only had 1 xs, so I jumped at it.

    I didn't pay much attention to it because I have two peacoats already.

    It's not 100% wool; a mix with nylon. Also, the lining doesnt seem warm for extreme cold conditions.

    Just got the email announcing new mark-downs in store.
    Can anyone report the new prices for these two outwears if they plan to visit a local store?

    Was just in a CM today and I must say, ontop of customer service being damn good, they're easily the best mall-brand. The sweaters are pretty awesome and the shirts fit me like a glove and are decently priced. Will definitely shop there more often.

    Just my take on things but most of this season's stuff seems rather UNclubmonaco-like. They're usually just simple colors and classic designs with a couple of random colors per season and a few funky pieces thrown in for fun but now they're much more like a Polo or J Crem IMO. The textures, features, colors especially. I'm not saying it's bad, but just sort of surprising.


    They also seem to carry some other branded goods, like Ray Ban sunglasses, Levi Jeans, Clark DB's, and I just saw Barbour waxed cotton jackets! (Eaton's Center). Does that strike anyone else as moving in a weird direction? I mean how often does the GAP or someone start bringing in many other branded pieces?

    Those are trendy classic brands right now, cm is trying to be legit and sell some clothes. I like this season actually, some nice sweaters and cardigans. Better than their usual black and white stripes.

    I never seen them in store. They seemed to be in women's section IIRC based on their email newsletters.
