I get many new Hickey's in my shop to refit or repair and after I show them a Sammy or a Southwick garment (or trade them up to Oxxford) it is easy to convert them over. The older clients always say without fail: "these aren't the quality they used to be, but the price keeps going up". The younger clients which they need usually bought it...
