    The utility jacket was too plasticky/shiny for me, but your mileage may vary.

    The other one is pretty cropped, and yeah, black.

    You didn't keep the waxed parka?

    Thanks Winston. I'm looking for something more of a transitional jacket from winter to spring.

    Althanis - I traded it with my cousin and got a casual shirt and Chino's instead. He really wanted it. Plus I like my stuff fitted, being a parka it was a bit loose

    Honestly, don't really like any of the sale offerings for that. Not on sale I'd prefer the "Baracuda" jacket or one of the Barbour jackets. It's 70 in NY today, and I wasn't sure if I should even step out with a jacket today. Ended up going with my single breasted Uniqlo rain coat.

    I see, once you're happy.

    It seems we skipped Spring entirely and are now in Summer here in Toronto.

    last year there was a sweet pull over anorak in olive green, they had a full range of sizes at Bloor last Monday. I'd grab that if I didn't wear so much green already.

    Has anyone tried on the Connor fit chinos? They appear to be the slimmest chino yet, but from the photos on the website they look kind of cropped.

    I have. Too slim, like a Emo kid. But that's me.

    Davis chino's are a perfect fit for me. Not too slim and not too loose, just right

    Is the student discount code for online some super top secret thing? If someone's willing to share it, please PM me. Thanks much.

    Not super secret, it is in the FAQ, i think they make you use a .edu account though.

    So nobody has the grey donegal shirt jacket?

    How about the green utility/safari coated jacket?
    Will that thing smooth out with some wear or will it maintain its stiff-plasticky look and feel?

    Why does Club Monaco always bring out everything in Blue and White? Damn can a guy get some variety?!

    Better than just black. I remember Club Monaco once being very dull in terms of it's colors.

    Well, FWIW I was just in NY and went into the 57th St store to check it out--last time I was in an actual CM store was like 5 yeas ago--and it was a riot of spring colors: chinos, shorts, shirts. Tons of good spring/summer colors, including prints and patterns. So, I'm not totally sure what you guys are talking about, except that maybe the website and B&M realities are not really aligned...?

    Yeah I went to Bloor, Eaton centre and yorkdale in one day last month and it looked like a rainbow threw up inside each store. I remember talking to a sales guy and they said the collections were based around one dominant color so who knows.

    Fuck cm's retail prices. Ugh.
