Hart Schaffner Marx- worth $400? - Page 2

post #16 of 27

Sir I just want to tell you clearly you made a very good choice in the selection of a hart schaffner and marx suit, they are one of the oldest actual american made suit makers left in the united states, they are 100% better quality then ything jos a. bank or brooks brothers has ever produced, they dont fuse any of their suits they are either half canvas construction or full canvas, the full canvas starts with the gold trumpeter or made to measure line that they have, they are still made in chicago today, president Barack Obama wears them the company started in 1887, they arent a cheap suit either they use a better wool, and better jacket construction then most italian designers do, including ARMANI, all armani suits off the rack are fused they dont actually use a jacket construction it only takes about 100 people to handle and build an armani suit, and about 100 hours to craft and build one, hart schaffner and marx on the other hand uses an actual 100% bemberg cupro lining in their jackets which is one of the best jacket linings for a mens suit that is on the market today, they also use padded lapels to make the jacket look more satorial, to build and create and craft one hart schaffner and marx suit in their factory in chicago, it takes almost 250 hours to make one and they have almost 285 people involved in the handling and manufacturing process, hart schaffner and marx also owns the company hickey freeman another great american suit maker that started in 1899 there still made in rochester newyork, so no you havent gone wrong at all with your purchase with a finely crafted hart schaffner and marx suit they are much better quality then anything from armani, or jos a. bank, or brooks brothers, I own 5 of them and never had a problem, also if you want to when your trousers wear out with that suit, you can contact hart directly or go to yr local dillards dept store, or where ever in your area hart suits are sold and they can make you another pair of trousers, the diffrence is quality they can last 15 years or more sometimes if well taken care of, also whats intresting about them is that they keep and maintain the same shape that they put into them in the first place when they are sent off to be cleaned, saks also sells them, they are still made in america today and they are good suits, also VON MAUR dept store sells them.

Thats were your 100% incorrect and wrong, hart schaffner and marx doesnt fuse their suits, they use and actual chest piece it usually either half canvas or full canvas construction, and they are much better quality then jos a. bank or brooks brothers, I can clearly tell you everything about the company and the suits and what defines them and makes them stand out from other off the rack suits like joseph a. bank, but no they arent fused.

Lots of great info Brandon, thanks! I have several HSM suits and a Gold Trumpeter suit and a few sport coats that I bought from their website @ 60-70% off. I know that when I worked in the suit department in college we would sell a lot of them to businessmen. That was 15 years ago so I'm unsure of their current quality and how they compare to other manufacturers.

Wearing a Hart Schaffner Marx suit right now.  I haven't taken it apart, but it does feel like a half canvassed suit.  I bought it at Nordstrom Rack.  I noticed that Nordstrom['s is now carrying a lot of these suits.  Is it possible that Nordstrom has demanded a more upscale quality than the fused suits others have discussed.

 

I really like the quality of the fabric.  I am a natural size 40, and the fit was perfect off the rack.  I actually like the feel of it as much as a couple of Hickey Freeman suits I bought around the same time for $150-$200 more.
