    There's always the Lipson sale as well. I've purchased a few of their shirts over the years and no complaints.

    (cheap plug - i have a few size 15 shirts for sale if you're interested)


    For those that used CBP - wondering if you've used Chit Chat Express at all? I'm debating between the two. Also, anybody used either service to ship to the US? USPS rates are 30% of what we pay with Canada Post, but reviews of service would be good if anybody has any

    100% with you on this. If the got more casual fabrics they'd have my entire clothing budget.

    Last year's heavy twill flannel is one of my favs they do casual well just not often enough.

    I wish S&M did a nice chambray. I picked up a really nice slubby one from Club Monaco, but the collar as we know is skimpier. Haven’t decided if I’m keeping it as yet.

    I'm also firmly in the Spier & Mackay camp for local shirts, however I'll usually get my wife to bring back some Kamakura (aka Maker's Shirt) shirts from Japan, since the prices there are much better than the US store/site (~$75 CAD with the current conversion).

    Anyone use Crossborderpickups or ChitChat to ship from Canada to the US? How does it work? Do I pay for shipping within Canada and send it to their facility(s) and they forward the package from there for a small surcharge?

    Pretty much re: chitchat
    You can print the label from their site
    You can also drop off in person instead of shipping to them (if it's convenient)

    Last time I checked the rate I got from USPS was 70% cheaper than Canada Post

    Brilliant. Thank you. I can't believe I'm only discovering these services now.
