Same for me. Shopping in Canadian funds and the OFFER30 code doesn't work on any of the items.

Also noticed the other day the three shirt offer doesn't work in Canadian funds either.

Pretty ridiculous that the new website went live when it is evidently so buggy.

This is nuts. Their suits are now $2k:



Weren't they 1500-1600 just a few weeks ago?

Rant time: I don't mind paying full price for a high quality garment. And I truly do like the Drake's aesthetic. But raising the price on existing stock serves what purpose exactly? (please correct me if I'm wrong about the prices above. But I'm pretty sure they weren't 2k to begin with).

Did tariffs kick in? I thought British suits were going to be targeted in the new tariffs. Maybe that explains the change in price?
I thought the tarrifs were for textiles (i.e. the wool). If so, that would explain it. Still cheaper to order from the London store directly.

Apologies if it has been asked before. Does anyone have any experience with the difference between mainline and easy day shirting? Is it the same cut with lower quality fabrics?

UK prices seemed to have gone up marginally but not on all items and not by that much.
Suits may have gone up £100 or so .. I wasn’t tracking them that close. Shirts have definitely gone up; the sports jackets that I was tracking are the same price.
US prices look exorbitant.

Code worked for me, but I also found that my account was linked to the UK store so I had to enter everything manually. Also ApplePay didn’t work until I had filled in the shipping info, even though I have a default shipping address set up. Seems their site has some issues.

They've even managed to make them look awful on the model. Shoulders look softer than blancmange, high button stance and ugly patch pockets on a chalkstripe flannel.

it’s a strange tactic on their part. If their tailoring was still made by Caruso or Belvest, it would make sense to charge $2k for a fully canvassed suit. But $2k for a half canvass suit seems a bit off for me, even if the design is great.

RL Polo suits are in the $1k to $1.5k, and some of their styling is similar to Drake’s (elevated prep).

Prices on the Canadian store are actually cheaper than the US for some items, which is unusual. The CAD price for a couple of items I checked (made in Italy & Portugal) is basically the VAT-inclusive UK price, converted to CAD and rounded up by $5-10. USD price was 8-18% higher for some reason (like the grey suit). But the $1000 USD cashmere shawl cardigan, made in the UK, is roughly the same price on all sites. So who knows.

Annoying you have to call the UK store to order for Canadian delivery now. The few times I ordered before it wasn't for the price, but the fact the USA/Canada store ran out of stock.

Damn, I wanted the blue/turquoise Rake tie but it seems to have sold out straight away, same with the blue stripe shirt.
