What weren't you impressed about it? Was it mainline Hickey Freeman or a lesser line?

Most of my suits are HF Mainline bought on sale at Dillards or NM Last Call for under $400 over the past 10 years. Unfortunately, those days are over -- HF quality is not what is used to be and prices are higher.

At the $600 price point (or a little bit more), I would go with one of the respected traveling tailors -- mytailor.com, etc. and get exactly what I wanted. A lot depends upon their travel schedule, where you live and when you need the suit. At that price, I would not buy a suit from Macys, Men's Warehouse, JoS Bank, etc. If you need it sooner, I'd check The Wizard of Ahs, Indochino, Black Lapel, etc.

Why did you make a second thread then for the same purpose?

Anyway, what didn't you like about it?

Pretty easy here on the sales forums, some of the affiliates, or on eBay. Just know your sizing.

I think you need to read around here more before purchasing unless you're in a hurry.
