    Wherever you go, don't go to Kelly Akram or whatever her name is @Cours Mont-Royal. Biggest rip-off ever. Their retail price for the Dior Homme Black Tie 104/s sunglasses was $400 CAD. Price is 200-250 anywhere else in Montreal.

    Albert Hazan has some good stuff...Got my Dita's there. Didn't shop so much there since I knew what I wanted but he's also got TFs, Cartier, and the usual stuff you can find at any optician in montreal. His lenses aren't the best though. Anti-glare, my ass.

    I've heard some good stuff about Alain Assedo (4933 Sherbrooke West) and I used to know this girl who worked in Les Barniques, or something like that (small store on University street... between Ste Catherine and RenÃ[​IMG]-Levesque) and apparently she says it's amazing.

    Thanks! If my eye heals, I'll go check them out this weekend.

    Didnt see any krane tho (sorry gwydion [​IMG]).

    Ken told me they'd be stocking Krane outerwear this f/w. Oh well, lol.

    Btw for both addresses on ste-Catherine it's important to mention that they're on ste-Catherine west and not east. There's nothing on ste-Catherine east anyways lol

    Precisely. I find it weird how everyone sees Montreal Nord as a ghetto when hochelaga maisonneuve and lasalle are by far the dirtiest, trashiest places in Montreal. I volunteer in lasalle and I want to gtfo as soon as I get there

    I went a couple weeks back and on the 2nd floor(where the suiting is), there were a few racks of junya jackets and pants
