Austin Reed quality?

How would you rate it? I'm considering an olive corduroy sportcoat from them.

I've only seen them on the rack, but at first blush, they seem pretty similar to most of the sportcoats you find at Hecht's and other such department stores.

Most of their stuff I've seen has been good to very good, in the range of H-F or maybe a bit below, and some of the better stuff was made by Chester Barrie.

I had some AR shirts in the past. I'd put them below Lewin/Tyrrwhitt/Pink.

Alot of the Austin Reed stuff Holdfast wears in the pics thread looks rather nice, though of course that doesn't speak to the quality.

Yes I know Hickey-Freeman is owned by Hart, Schaffner, & Marx, but Austin Reed is a glued peice good that has a more european cut than a HSM. I would not buy it, because glued garments have too short a life span. One bad dry-cleaning and the garment can be permanently puckered.
