    Was just in the newly opened store at south coast today and it was alright. When I caught sight of the store I remembered a cardigan from cm I'd seen on a guy somewhere on the internet and I was like "yeah" so I went in and scoped everything out. I was also super hungry and a little depressed so for now I think of it as a cheaper hipper jcrew. I wouldn't buy anything there except a t-shirt or a cardigan, so if they only sold variations on t-shirts and cardigans I'd be stoked

    They're kind of in that space already. I'd prefer that they didn't go more in that direction.

    I think by "modern slim fit" mostly they are referring to a "modern collar", a smaller and streamlined collar that doesn't look overwhelming versus the face when you do the fully-buttoned look. Also, the armholes are higher and fit is marginally slimmer. The shirts are already pretty slim as it is.

    Maybe it's just an exception, but the CM store where I live is pathetic. Looks like a Banana Republic outlet and makes me wonder where all the cool #menswear CM stores are.

    Where do you live? I think it really depends on how many locations you have available to you, although I haven't noticed a huge difference in quality when it comes to the stores. There is still a lot of overpriced stuff. And I find most of their shirts just don't fit all that well.

    Have any of the taller SF members had positive experiences with Club Monaco clothes? I'm 6'6" and usually wear a 36/35 (I'm probably actually a 35 inseam, so I end up un-hemming/re-hemming 36/34s or 36/36s).

    Overpriced yes. Thats why you never buy anything in that store at retail, I just wait for the sales and plus my cousin works there so discount :slayer:

    I find for casual stuff their clothes fit the best along with J crew. My wardrobe is full of CM stuff.

    Yep, I'd never buy anything there full price. Right now they've got 40% off sale items, and lots of sizes are still available. I really wanted that navy seersucker blazer, but missed it in 36.

    Fear not. In 3 weeks there will be more stock. That mac coat actually went on sale, what do you think of it? When i tried it on a few months back it fit well.

    I am 6'2" (so not quite so tall) and wear 32/34 normally, but am quite skinny. Club Monaco's Medium fits me well for sweaters but the shirts tend to be a bit baggy. Some pants fit me very well but they tend to be a bit short on inseam.

    It's perfectly fine when bought on sale. Last item I bought from CM was this sweater (looks better on me, and I wear it with a shirt)

    Their shirts tend to be too long, I find. They pretty much need to be worn tucked in.

    If we're talking about the same one, I didn't like the big patch pockets.

    Looks fine I guess, though not at that price. Not something I need in my wardrobe.

    I've moved into a smaller place, so apart from the obvious issue of spending too much money, I'm also trying to just buy the things I need and are versatile.

    Copped the varsity, black on black.

    Price is 450, not 595.
