From a few minutes of googling, this is an HSM brand, mostly sold at men's specialty stores in the Southeast, and also sold under the Austin Reed label. A post on AACC says they're fused.

Too bad the Southwick program didn't work out, sounds like that was a higher quality option.

apropos of nothing: Costco actually makes very little on products they sell. something like 90% of their profits come from other sources, like membership fees

I am just really curious at what the price points will be for Graham & Gunn at Costco. Would really like just an everyday navy sc and hope the pricing is on par with quality. It cannot be worse than Indochino, amiright?

Years ago it was the enrty-level brand at FR Tripler in New York, which sold Oxxford, and it's counterpart, the name of which I do not recall, in Chicago. Roughly equivalent to the old BB 346 line.

This started today. Does anyone plan on checking it out? Would love to hear a report if anyone does. It will make it to me in a few weeks.

I stopped in my Costco today and checked this out. They had a huge area set up in the store. The prices are $699 for the "Basic" material choices and $899 for Super 150s. You get to pick from two cuts (Traditional or Modern) and then 2 or 3 button and pleated or plain front slacks. I think those were the only choices. I believe they were all side vented. I asked about any add-ons, such as functioning buttons on the cuffs and they didnt even know what I was talking about. One lady passed me on to another who told me there was an 800 number I could call after receiving my suit for additional alterations. The sign said in huge letters "MADE IN NORTH AMERICA" which I assume means not USA. My pinch test skills suck so I can't tell you about canvassing. The body scanning tool looked pretty cool. They were surprisingly busy, so I didn't hang around much.

I'm thinking it's Coppley.... G&G used to be another label of Hart, Schafner & Marx, they used when they sold another retailer in the same city. In the final days of Hartmarx, it was interchangeable with Austin Reed/Palm Beach. Now, I think, it is another label for Coppley, going by the "made in North America" thing.

Had to buy some crap at Costco today and saw the Graham & Gunn display booth. Wasn't overly impressed with the quality, but it didn't look or feel horrible. Uninspired, missing lots of the nice details we all look for, but decent enough for regular Joes. I can see how normal buyers might jump at it.

The promotion is running at my local COSTCO. Haven't checked it out.
Graham and Gunn was, twenty years ago or so, the entry level label at such distinguished
clothiers as FR Tripler in New York, if I am not mistaken. I believe it was a HartMarx brand,
roughly equivalent to the old 346 line at Brooks Bros. I doubt there is any connection with
it's current incarnation.

The promotion is now "live" . I spoke to one of the reps. She said that the jackets are canvassed.
Also, that Graham and Gunn is part of Hickey Freeman, which part of HartMarx. The suits are made in the US and
Canada. The display models looked generic, but perfectly respectable.

No pics of the Southwick exercise in the end?

Graham & Gunn is currently at Costco in Lawrence, NY. The suits range form $600-800 depending on fabric. The rep said they are made in Pennsylvania.
