I wish Au coton would come back. They were clothes you could count on. Talk about long lasting,i still have clothes from almost twenty years ago. I just had to reluctantly throw out a pair of their pants, a sad day it was. Please bring them back.

I used to work at an Au Coton in Woodbridge NJ for 4 years when I was in high school. They were great clothes...really popular. I remember all the pregnant people loving it in there because most of the stuff was baggy enough to be worn with a pregger stomach. I used to love the Savanne pants...had them in every color. I had a lot of fun at Au Coton....I think I still have some of the button pins from there.

I used to work for a General Contractor based in the Detroit Area. I built the Au Coton clothing stores from the East coast to the west. What a great company to work for...

I'm selling a woven beach top on eBay right now! Can't believe I'm parting with it after all these years but it's still like brand new. Au Coton was a great company with really good quality, long lasting clothing.

Melissa-I just googled au coton because i was thinking about how awesome the clothes were, I was in junior high and it was always a splurge for me to spend my allowance on something from there. I lived in Crown Point and shopped at Southlake!!!

Hello! I worked as an assistant manager for the Au Coton locations both in Northridge and Glendale, CA. I miss the employees, the store and the clothing. It really was a great place to work! Thank you Au Coton, for the memories!

The best store ever. I still wear pants I bought at their store in the Rideau Centre in Ottawa. Miss the store very much. Sigh!

I shopped the Atlantic City Store in the Mall for many many years. Am anxious to hear if your online store gets going. It was the best store and allowed me so much comfort.

I received one AU COTON polo shirt as a present in the 80's. It's dusty pink, boxy, drop-shoulder, one-size for all, and of course, 100% cotton. It's the most comfortable shirt I have ever had. It has some holes at the seams now, but I still wear it, especially in a hot summer night. Yes, please come back, and come on-line too.

If Au Coton would come back to Southern California, I would be your best customer! I had just about every outfit in every color. Such great clothes! It would be most important to have the same quality as it was in the '80's - PLEASE, no cheaping out!!!!

I miss au Coton. I get nostalgic every time I wear the T-shirts and jackets I still have. Can't find anything that comes close today,

I miss au coton so much. My friends and I used to shop there all the time as teenagers. The emerald square mall location, Melissa mentioned, was our place to shop. It would be so nice to have them around when pregnant!

I used to go to the store downtown NYC & STILL have & wear 1 pair of black pants. Wish I kept everything else I bought from there. Not a big clothes lover, but I loved that store for me & my daughter. Come back!!!

I too LOVED my Au Coton....shopped the South Street store in Philly and would leave with 2-3 huge shopping bags of everything in all colors. I still have 2 of the boxy sweatshirts and I believe a hoodie or two ...30 years later?! I wish I kept the other items, cool, comfy and oh so stylish with the big belts, earrings and HAIR! 80's were the best! Bring back our Au Coton please!!

I worked at The Unique Clothing Warehouse and used to shop at Au Coton all the time! I Love that store!! To me better than Gap and Benetton which was always overpriced!! I pray they come back, I have been searching for years for similar clothing but never the same...They were simply the best quality and comfort for the greatest prices ever!!! AU COTON COME BACK!!!!

I have a sweater/sweatshirt that is so classy and comfortable. It must be 20-25 years old and still looks and feels great. It was manufactured in Canada. Is there a store that even resembles Au Coton in the states?
