I have a few HSM Gold Trumpeteer suits, and have been very pleased overall. HartMarx, the parent company, also makes Hickey Freeman. I also have a Hickey Freeman sportcoat (on sale at Barney's warehouse sale) which is one of my favorites in style, pattern, fabric, construction and fit...it's a three button model, double vented, decent roll to the lapel...actually the HSM suits are like that too.
36 measurements are taken ( hence the made to measure ) when the suit is ordered.
JohnG - where are you located/what store is this? When I did my HSM MTM, there was nowhere near this level of attention. I just realized I have another HSM GT suit - several years ago, HartMarx had a real factory store in Reading PA, called something like "National Discount Brands." It was HSM for the tailored clothing and several of their other brands - like Nicklaus - for the sports clothing. I picked up a nice (too?) conservative HSM GT blue with subtle grey and red overplaid suit for something like $200. I often see HSM at Nordstorm Rack at very good prices. Re: Oxxford - as everyone else said, different league altogether. I do have a NWT Oxxford sport coat from EBay, around $400, I still need to get it altered. -edit- comment about Nordstrom Rack.
