Stop that tut-tutting! This is not a deal for Norman Hilton clothing, otherwise they would have said so. Nick Hilton (son of Norman) had his own "NH 1988" RTW business that did well in the 90s. The package deal may be for suiting from his own patterns...who knows. He's had the shop in Princeton for about 15 years at least. I think his Norman Hilton revival did not go very far.

I round down to list in the next even size. I don't list in odd sizes; fewer people look in them. If in doubt, choose the smaller size for the listing.
