    Why don't you just order something extra to get the free shipping and then return it in store?

    Anyone on here grab one of the "Clipper" Jackets from 2012? Looking for this in a large, would love to buy one if it's not getting any wear:

    Has anyone noticed that CM has cut the Davis chinos significantly slimmer recently? Picked up two sale pairs and one full price (with a student discount), the full price one (which I assume is the current season) is much slimmer in the legs.

    I noticed that Club Monaco has been cutting everything considerably slimmer lately. I used to wear mediums there and now I have to go with larges even though Im the same size in every other brand. I also recently tried on a blazer and I now have to go to a 42 where I used to fit the 40. Its strange how they have started cutting things so slim that its basically the same as going down a size from what they used to sell. A few different brands have been doing that lately. People really want slim fit I guess.

    I am currently wearing a Davis slim fit from maybe 2 years ago and agree that the new ones are slimmer, not a crazy amount, but a bit more taper. BTW the Conner's a completely different cut (duh). I accidently bought a pair of those since they were in the same color pile at the store and the same size was way too tight.

    I actually wouldn't mind a slimmer Davis fit. Is the waist still high up? I felt the waist was a bit higher than I would have liked. I'm giving away the pair I have.

    Davis cut is perfect IMO.

    I found the newer ones to have a slightly more aggressive taper, which I quite like. I plan on taking my other pairs to my tailor with the newer pair to get the taper copied.


    Waist and rise appear to be the same, the difference is in the leg, it's a bit slimmer and more tapered.

    I just got a pair of Davis for $9 last week.

    Unfortunately, the waist is still higher than I prefer.

    I was going to suggest the Rancourts since the Roots chukkas are almost certainly made in some communist shithole (i.e., China or Vietnam), but the photos on the website surprised me with a "Made in Canada" stamp on the sole. I don't think you can go wrong with either pair.

    I tried on my pair again just to see if I would change my mind about them, but tucking in a shirt with them, on my body, just doesn't work. Waiting for J.Crew's chinos to go on sale.

    I would suggest Rancourt all the way. Not that I've seen that shoe, but I've seen Roots other Made in Canada footwear and I have not been impressed. Rancourts are miles ahead. To be honest if you are buying shoes, I would suggest sticking with a company that makes shoes rather then an apparel company (which is what roots is more known for)
