Thanks Sharon, that sounds lovely. I see that there is still a C+E boutique within Ogilvy's (downtown Mtl); I remember a free-standing shop, on St-Denis I believe. Others are in Laval and St-Bruno; the latter very far away on the South Shore.
I'm looking for a jeans jacket (my lighter one is dying, it from dearly regretted Cotton Ginny). Don't find anything nice. The ones at Reitmans are in a strange denim with too much spandex - they would soon become shapeless. Hard to find. Must have pockets. Would be willing to look at US catalogues (LL Bean, Lands End etc., much as I hate ordering online.
