Is the new one at least longer? I have a charcoal Grant suit from 2013 made in Turkey which was perfect except for the whole cropped look. I purchased a navy one last year, but returned it because the quality wasn't anywhere near as good as the made in Turkey ones.

Where are the "new" Grant fit ones made anyway? The "old" made in Turkey ones were surprisingly nice. I didn't find them to be too short either...the made in America ones are noticeably more cropped.

Thanks again for the tip on these discounted MIA blazers. I just picked up the woold/silk/linen blazer for $100 using the "sale on sale" right now. Great deal!

Which blazer are you talking about?

 

And, could I stack student code?

No student code does not stack

Received the Made in USA silk/linen/wool blazer - very nice! Fits the same as my USA jackets from last year.

I just ordered my first "new Grant" blazer. Can anyone say where these are now being made? Turkey (like the old ones)? Or China?

This. +1

If your 38 jackets are measuring out to 38 then they are not sized/tagged right. There should be room to move in the jacket otherwise if your chest is actually 38" it would literally be skin tight.

I should have said "sized" for a 38-inch chest. I've never encountered a suit jacket that was tagged some smaller chest size but was actually cut to fit a much larger torso. Maybe this happens and I've just never tried one on. I've only ever worn a 38 jacket, no matter the manufacturer or style.

To answer my own question: the "new" Grant suits appear to be made in China frown.gif

Hi guys, how's the quality of the Golden Bear CM leather jackets? Picked up one recently for usd400, not sure whether to keep / if good value for $. Leather feels good but interested in opinions on long term wear, thanks.
