    I'm confused about the ownership of Hart Schaffer Marx. My understanding is HartMarx is Chicago-based company. But is their parent company S. Kumars, Ltd. the India company? A Google search makes mention of the S. Kumars connection as recently as 2011, but the articles about S. Kumars (and President Obama's Gold Trumpeter Suits) don't mention any affiliation to S. Kumars.

    From Chicago Tribune dated August 2009, "Emerisque Brands UK and its partner SKNL North America said Friday that they completed the purchase of Chicago-based suitmaker Hartmarx Corp." No mention of Kumars anywhere when googled.

    HSM is having their winter sale and I bought a $1K Gold Trumpeter Grey Flannel suit in the American Modern cut for $250 and a $500 blue/brown glen plaid sport coat for $150.

    Between your username and avatar, I totally read the thread title as "Owen Hart."
