    I'm heading to NYC around March 13th for the week. Probably gonna just hit up UNIQLO for cheap summer wear since I can't afford to buy more pricey things if I want to go to NZ, lol.

    I went to Simons a week back and there's nothing there at all. Guess they're still waiting for things. I walked by AM68 and it seems like they are clearing it all out? I know they weren't doing so great so they may be closing. Duo got a bunch of stuff in but didn't see anything I liked. Will go to Les Etoffes one of these days...when I find it.

    Am68 are having a sale, 60% off everything except jewelry. They had APC but only sizes 34. Got a pair at Holt Renfew.

    finally a good reason to go there

    am68 are moving to a smaller location in old port (?) I think. Hence the 60% off everything.

    I remember Alfonso saying something about going to Michel Brisson or something. Interesting.

    Yea uniqlo will be a stop for me for some basics. I'll ask on the forum detailed addresses since I know basically what I want to buy in NYC (common projects shoes, rag&bone stuff, boat shoes etc) I just went back from simons and I fell in love with a wooyoungmi linen blazer. As soon as it's on sale, I'll prolly buy it [​IMG] Still no junya tho [​IMG]

    Where do you guys cut your hair? Due to exam, labs and volunteering I have found myself with the longest hair I've ever had in my life (something like 3-4 inches, ha). Anyways, I usually always shave them but I feel like doing something now that I've actually let them grow. I must say I have the worst hair in the world though. No limit to the price but keep in mind I am a student lol [​IMG]

    Would like to know where too. When I was there last buying my eyeglasses, all I saw were larger frames for sunglasses. They don't suit me [​IMG]

    Lol same.
    As for eyewear, try Alain Assedo (4933 Sherbrooke W.). Never went myself but I've heard good things about it.

    Yeah I like it. The salesman mentioned they'd start getting Louboutin and Balmain lol Other than that they carry Dior, Prada, Neil Barrett, Lanvin, Moncler, McQ, etc etc. That's about all I can remember. Too bad their website sucks though.
    where is good to buy/try on sunglasses
    I've only had experience with two stores...Albert Hazan was pretty good, but their choice wasn't very large. They can order whatever you want, though. The other one was Kelly Akram or something like that at Cours Mont Royal. It was horrible. All the sunglasses I was interested in were marked up by at least $75-100 and then they tell you they're gonna make a special price just for you :cool: ...
