That's what it cost; what it's worth is rather more subjective. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on Graham Browne.

I would go for Connock & Lockie for sports jackets if I could be convinced that they could turn a jacket around in a reasonable timeframe, but at the moment I think they are overworked and I am not sure it's going to get better. So my next sports jacket will be...

Frog in Suit Correct - have a look at the post I linked to TheWraith for my thoughts at that time on the downside of Graham Browne. In fact, since then Russ and Dan have pretty much taken over from Graham and things have if anything improved - a better choice of fabrics and a better...
