    I stopped in. Got the charcoal trousers with cargo pocket. It's something you always see in GQ, but never in real life.
    Apparently many other items sold out and a bomber jacket went first says the sales guy.

    I wanted the wool blazer, but the fit was way too tight in the arms, but right everywhere else. The technical blazer felt cheap and sizing was weird there too.

    I like camo so the t-shirt was an option, but the colors felt off. Too bright for camo, maybe.
    I didn't try on the camo pants, but thinking about it as an alternative to camo chinos.

    I figured the leather would fly off the shelves. Not my style leather though. Im more of a moto style guy.
    Def gotta cop the charcoal wool cargos. Its something thats all in magazines but never on anyones shelves.

    thoughts on the todd snyder or saturdays stuff? Sweatshirts , herringbone cargo and chinos all looked pretty nice.

    Hasn't Epaulet offered a much nicer version for a while?

    picked up the camo tshirt. I thought the camo cargos were great too.

    IMO the leather jacket was overprices & cheap leather, so were the tighty whites lol

    The TS cargos are great, and I would have grabbed a Saturdays oxford but I was in between a M and L. The chinos looked good, especially the blue. I didn't try them on, but sizing seemed to be in line with the wool OS/TS cargos.

    Price points are different because they are geared towards different market segments.

    The stuff is okay if you are hankering to get your GQ fix. Only thing I liked was the BLK DENIM washed black jeans, but they looked and fit like shit. Everything else I saw I didn't really care for. Reasonable prices for everything though...

    Stopped into the Robson St. Store in Vancouver. Wanted that TS grey sweatshirt, only S and XS left. Picked up the Saturdays waxed cotton jacket. Tried on a bunch of stuff and they all fit much better than the average Gap stuff... trim, fitted, everything seemed really well made and constructed.

    Glad I checked it out.

    I don't see a whole lot of design in any of this. Reproductions without a twist.

    Bitch stop fucking complaining about this amazing occasion to stock up on staples, don't you cunt know that the best way to bring new zest to your wardrobe without breaking the bank is to get a few accessories that pop. Adding a bow-tie to your casual looks will instantly dress them up, is that fucking clear or do I need to shove a boot up your ass!!??? Roll up your chinos when leaving the office and unbutton one shirt button to project that cool, relaxed vibe that will make the ladies swoon at the wine bar, and pronto you sack of shit!!!
