    I went to the SSENSE store this afternoon (90 st-paul west, montreal).

    I've seen some cool balmain stuff. A blazer, shirts, etc
    Marc jacobs stuff (marc by marc available too on demand, mostly)
    Givenchy (couple suits, blazers, shoes)
    maison martin margiela (sneakers, maybe more, didn't notice)

    i bought a marc by marc jacob suede jacket. very nice and on sale! [​IMG]
    They told me that any stuff there is on ssense.com they can send it to the store for 48h so you can try it on, no obligation of course! :)

    the staff is very friendly too!

    Copped the green blazer in M for 299.

    Anyone notice the Simons 31 label camo lined blue blazer with brass buttons? Looks mad cheap even from a distance, pretty much a failed attempt at ripping off of a junya fw 2010 blazer. I have the OG, I'll post come comparison pics. The polyester camo lining is particularily hideous looking.

    Michel brisson on Laurier has a decent sale. Couple sizes of the w+h green and khaki westpoint twill chinos for 80$. Resized and got a 32 khaki. Have a pair of 33 khaki if anyone wants em for close to nothing.

    i want them :p answer to my PM!
    saw the olive shorts but still too expensive.
    Staff is fuckin lol, nobody went to see me during the whole time I was there, pretty lol.

    Went to Kapok across the street and fell in love with this store. LOTS of common projects which are way less expensive that what you can find in NA. easily -100$ on each models compared to ssense or reborn. They carry Kitsune, bleu de paname, porter and the owner is super friendly.

    I strongly recommend this store. :)

    Hmmm, red desert boot, black derby shoes with wood sole, vintage pairs (two I think), an all white model, saddle model, one or two high tops and I can't remember what else.

    Few pairs of CPs highly discounted at Holt. I saw the derbies, desert boots, white achilles, black captoe etc. Discounts were around 60%.

    Passed by the Simons in laval and noticed they were now carrying Boris Bidjan leathers (well 1 model). Was kind of surprised, especially as it's not the downtown location, where they'd probably have an easier time selling it.

    Ahh, never across any I guess. Did they start this season or has it been happening for quite a while now?

    Past two seasons I think. Currently its far on the back near the stairs for women.
    Manager told me that all the pieces are now in store, no more stuff to come.
