    Won't happen for awhile I bet lol.

    Even then, the mark downs probably don't be the same.

    Who here got the Navy 3 piece suit? I have a few questions...

    1. Where's it made/what's the material?
    2. How much did the full thing retail for again?
    3. How slim is it?

    I didn't get the suit but I picked up the pants so I can answer as far as those go... Pants (assuming there isn't another variation) are 100% wool and have a really nice cut (tapers down to a 6.75 lo) though they're somewhat cropped which is fine for me b/c they're basically perfect inseam wise (I'm about 5ft8) but they do have about a inch/ inch and change that can be let out. Pants were $99 on sale for 49.99. Didn't bother looking to see how much the jackets were since my size wasn't available.

    I didn't buy the whole suit but the jacket was $130 full price. 100% wool, made I think in Romania. Slim cut although not ultra Slim Reedo cut. I imagine you are a 38 (might fit a 36). I'm 39 chest and 38 was wearable but pretty tight...perfect in length. Ended up getting a 40 but arms are a little long.

    no boots/shoes left at my local store. pretty much all that was left were the suits, and a few big sizes of a couple other pieces, not much. still full price. I'll grab a suit if they drop

    anyone know what the NYC stores are like?

    Dude, everything got marked. Everything is at least 40% off now and a ton of it is 50% off.

    The fused blazer and the suit blazer are both at $60. Painted vest is $30. Faux fur beaver coat and reversed coat marked down to $150. Etc. etc.

    It's all kind of spread around the men's section now though so you have to keep your eyes open for some of it.

    (This is for the Austin store if anybody is wondering.)

    Seems really weird that everything's on sale this quickly.

    If the big sales hit Finland too I'll have to go see what's left in my size.

    Anyone know if Canada has the same sales for the MMM stuff? I've been too busy to check it out but I might head to the store here in Calgary to see or wait until Vancouver in a couple weeks as they usually have more stock.

    H&M isn't a boutique, it needs to move stuff fast and in high volume.

    It's called a fucking friends and family card. Think on it.

    Not really anything on sale. Maybe a couple of women's pieces at most.

    True, but I don't remember them moving the previous collaborations this fast....It just started 2 weeks ago and most everything is 50% or more off and they've removed the campaign info from their website.

    I dunno why this collab was so unsuccessful compared to the others, imo it was a lot better than the other oretty unwearable collabs (Vesace?!?!)

    Friends and family cards are often times sent out as emails or cards in the mail to customers(friends of the company). Not just directly to employees. Big department stores, such as H&M does this often.

    I hit the downtown Seattle store today and they had the black side zips marked down to $99. On top of that I was able to get them to accept the %20 off coupon, getting them to $80 or so. For anyone interested; there were quite a few 42s left, and probably 1 of 41,43,44.

    It's not unsuccessful, H&M said they actually put in more volume for this collab than the other ones because people complain about how the previous ones always sell out so fast. Of course, having a higher price tag than the previous collabs don't help either.

    Don't quote me on this, but I remember reading something after the Versace collab about all the people trying to jack the price on ebay and stuff, and how H&M wanted to avoid a situation like that again. It could be with the higher volume, they are trying to balance out the supply and demand.

    Damn, all I know is I really want to cop the boots or the confetti tee now. Size 43 boots or size small shirt anyone?

    Anyone check out the Portland store and what kind of stock they have? Might head up tomorrow if I get a chance and check it out. Interested in side zips if I can get them cheap and the navy suit.
