Thoughts on Hickey (hickeystyle.com)

post #1 of 229
Thread Starter 
Looks like a diffusion brand of Hickey Freeman for a younger audience. I've seen the ads in GQ. Some of the styles are nice at hickeystyle.com and they have a blue oxford on sale for $53 that I saw at Scoop in NYC for $100. Seemed like a nice shirt at the price and even nicer at $53. I'm always on the lookout for the perfect blue oxford.

Looks like they have a nice, preppy aesthetic, and some nice sale prices right now.

Anyone know anything about the sizing of the shirts, whether they are short enough so that you can fit them untucked?

Apparently the shirts use trocas shell buttons (not sure if the Oxford does). Never seen those before. The press section shows their lines used in some GQ/Details stylings, I really like the look, and it seems like when things go on sale the prices get quite reasonable. Will be interesting to check out the shirt when it comes.

Just in case anyone is curious, my oxford came into day. It is made of a thick, thick oxford cloth, thicker than my J. Crew one, I'd say. Also, the fit is very slim; the medium fit slimmer than a Steven Alan reverse seam medium, but I like it a lot. It needs a little shortening (most shirts I wear do) but has nice thick plastic buttons and a good feel all around. I'm happy with the purchase and will buy again from the website if I catch a good deal.

Would you mind posting measurements? I too have checked out their site a few times and although the retail prices are a bit high for me, they always seem to be having a sale of some sorts.


Thanks!

Sure, I don't mind, I'll do it tomorrow. It seems like people don't know about the site, because they have a lot of stuff on sale, and in nearly every size. A cool thing about the oxford is that it is more like a washed out, sunned blue than the J. Crew oxford I have, which has a truer, more new looking blue.

I think they look like good basic shirts, but they have pockets right? not a fan of that...

My oxford has a pocket, which I like in casual shirts and am indifferent toward on dress shirts.

I believe I read on there that if you buy the stuff on sale it is final sale and I really don't want to be stuck around with a shirt that doesn't fit and I can't return. Even in their non-sale section suits were 50% off. Some pretty decent ties left too...but count me out from the marijuana leaf imprinted on a sweater.

It does seem to appear as though they are having a hard time getting rid of stuff with the range of sizes and styles still available.

I think I must have read this on the main page:
"Items purchased in this section are considered CLEARANCE items and are non-refundable. These items may only be returned for merchandise credit or exchange. Please see our Return Policy for complete details."

I have a feeling though if they are cut slim they are either going to fit just how I want them to or the sleeves will be too long.

Good call though drizzt. I may end up ordering from them after all...

I think their stuff is always on sale cause their shit is WAY overpriced. Anyway i'm definately interested in getting measurements for their shirts. I'd like to pick up one of their corduroys but alas I can't try them on...

Hickey is pretty expensive for what it is, but it's not nearly as overpriced as some designer clothes. I'm trying to get some of their cashmere tennis sweaters to sell...

53 is good for their shirts. I went to the sample sale and they were selling them for 40 or 45. This was in the H-F design HQ. The Soiffer-Haskin sales may have them for less, or have none at all. Chorse can say more about the hickey representation at the S-H H-F sales. The hickey shirt I tried on fit me well. I'm about a 38/39 R with a 40cm neck. A comparably fitting dress shirt would be an H&M medium, in other words a slim cut with narrower shoulders, higher arm holes, etc.

I was on their site a few days ago and didn't really find anything I liked, even though I did kind of like the overall style...

except, I REALLY like this jacket: http://www.hickeystyle.com/website/p...RQW2FSQNK1LN5&

I still might get it, not sure yet tho

The Soiffer Haskin sale had only trousers and sportcoats. The thing that kills me about hickey is that Hickey Freeman makes full canvas jackets and suits for the comparable prices to what they charge for hickey. If they made the hickey stuff full canvas, I would buy a lot of it.
