Didn't Hickey Freeman produce many of the Gieves & Hawkes suits that were made in the USA? I see a lot of G&H but almost all have the HF maker tag along with the Union Made USA tags.

Hardy Amies have done this too.

Huntsman, Henry Poole, Anderson & Sheppard, Norton & Sons and Dege & Skinner are a few proper Savile Row companies worth giving a shit about.

I understand, my post was supposed to be a bit tongue in cheek. These are made in Portugal. I don't get much of the high end stuff here, lots of BB and JCrew. When someone changes size and gets rid of a set of work clothes it's more likely to be Cintas than Cucinelli.

But if they fit I'll wear them for fun.

Huntsman makes RTW and is outsourced.

Oh I know that, so does A&S. But they're not garbage made in a crappy factory. I still want an A&S cable knit cardigan, they're so nice.

I'm going to be 100% honest with you, do not trade this nor consign.  Sell yourself.

 

A NWT Kiton Vicuna will fetch you thousands of dollars. It would not be in your favor to trade for something of way lesser value and/or have 60-70% of the amount go to a consignor.  There are many great consignor's on here but that would be a huge amount of $ to leave on the table

It's a "Clinometer". Used traditionally in the forestry industry to measure heights of trees from a distance. But also useful for measuring topographical slope of the ground. Can also be used for other land surveying type measurements.

Anyone here have wisdom on cleaning suede? The attolini suede is in great condish but the shoulders have some darkening on them, and a tiny pen mark. Any good products out there? suede erasers?
