I was in my local Brooks Brother's store earlier today picking up a few iron free shirts and happened to wander into the suit area and found some decent looking stuff. Now i'm usually a Hickey Freeman sack suit kinda guy, but i'm always willing to give other companies a shot if the quality is up to snuff. I've heard the Italian made BB is made by Isaia, and their US made line is tailored by Martin Greenfield. Is it worth the trip to NYC's Madison store for the Isaia made suit which isn't for sale in my local BB Retailer. How is the quality of the Greenfield made suit? How does it compare to HF's Collection line? I've heard that BB has had some issues in the past w/ their suits since Marks & Spencers took them over, but have made a rebound...Can anyone confirm this? I just asked the salesperson about the quality of their premier line and he mentioned that their Golden Fleece line are all Loro Piana Super 120's, and all sewn, not fused. Can anyone give me any insight into how the newest US made offerings by BB contends w/ the HF Collection line in terms of quality, material durability, and overall cut. They have a 20% off deal going on Black Friday, is it work dropping $800 for one of their "highest quality" suits (normally goin for $1059)?
