    Good point. The WEDNESDAY code only applied online though....

      The Outlet portion of the Mango site is now at 50% off... no code needed. Really sparse on sizing, but if you have been curious about trying Mango stuff, now might be a good time. For shirts/jackets/coats and such, they're kind've vanity sized. I'm a 40" chest and their XS/S/M/L/XL sized stuff fits me pretty well in "Medium." Most of their SCs and suit jackets are pretty short. At 6 foot 1, they're a couple inches shorter than I would like. If you're any taller than that, I'd stay away. If you ARE going to cop a suit jacket or blazer, I suggest sizing up (i.e. I'm a 40L in most brands but need a 42 in Mango). Anyway, here's the link:

      A few highlights:

      $19.99 Cotton Blazer in size 40 Only (i.e. for a 38R chest)

        It's really frustrating that there are no sleeve lengths there. Thanks for providing the 40L -> 42 comparison though, good for me!

          Sleeves are longish... Probably around 26", which is strange given that the jackets' tails are fairly cropped. Uniqlo and H&M both do the same thing: longish sleeves on shortish jackets.

          At 6 foot 4, I think you're better off passing on these, John.

            I actually have a Uniqlo M blazer that does OK with the cropped length [in the middle, pre Derby Party]. Wears a bit longer when I don't have my arms around the shoulders of my buddies, naturally. I know this one tugs pretty tight at the button, though... but I've dropped a few inches since then

              Ok good! Just FYI, I'm a Uniqlo M as well.

                I love the spread collar on some of their dress shirts, do you have any experience with those? I couldn't find the correct size chart for their shirts. They have some strange 4-12 sizing for shirts.

                            CT shirt fabric is incredibly thin comparing to other major brands like BR, JCREW etc., and the sleeve are huge.

                              The poplin is thins as all get out. The twill is nice IMO. I have no issues with the sleeve I have in their ESF. Never saw any of their ties in person, anyone have experience with them?

                                I like their ties. I have several and wear them frequently. Is it a Drake's tie? No, but I think it's nicer than a lot of previous ties I had pre-purge. You also can't beat the price. If you like their shirts, I think this is a good deal (knowing the tie quality).
