I'm inclined to agree. Hickey Freeman is all over the place in quality from my experiences. I once purchased a Burberry by HF and it was just awful. I couldn't even bring myself to keep it at a deep discount. However, my brother has an older Hickey Freeman suit and it is absolutely exquisite.
My thoughts exactly. Having just finished watching 3 seasons of suits, I get what your friend is going for. Unfortunately, your friend is probably not going to look exactly like Harvey Specter because your friend isn't Gabriel Macht and he isn't a fictional character that gets to act like a hardass with zero repercussions.However, he can certainly upgrade in the wardrobe department. Since, as state, your friend has no developed his own style and taste yet. I would...

I wouldn't need to spend $3500, that is for sure. You should be more specific, for example: 1. What kind of suits does he have? What style of suit is he after? 2. Does he want to stick with black (standard) shoes or go with a more stylish brown or burgundy? 3. Does he want several crisp white shirts that go with anything or something more eccentric?
I can attest that they fit slightly looser. The difference in sizing was significant to me. In my case, the heel of the cambridge was looser than the heel in my 5 last calf shoes, enough that I had to return them. However, YMMV.
Try AG jeans in either the Protege or Hero fits. My friends and I have had good luck with those.

Cripes. Figure out your size and go on Ebay. You can get a very nice, fully canvassed suit for $500 or less there. If you are concerned about measurements, buy one with a return policy. Brands you might look at include: Hickey Freeman Oxxford Zegna Canali Corneliani Pal Zileri Samuelsohn Paul Stuart ....the list goes on
