    Had to buy some crap at Costco today and saw the Graham & Gunn display booth. Wasn't overly impressed with the quality, but it didn't look or feel horrible. Uninspired, missing lots of the nice details we all look for, but decent enough for regular Joes. I can see how normal buyers might jump at it.

    The promotion is running at my local COSTCO. Haven't checked it out.
    Graham and Gunn was, twenty years ago or so, the entry level label at such distinguished
    clothiers as FR Tripler in New York, if I am not mistaken. I believe it was a HartMarx brand,
    roughly equivalent to the old 346 line at Brooks Bros. I doubt there is any connection with
    it's current incarnation.

    The promotion is now "live" . I spoke to one of the reps. She said that the jackets are canvassed.
    Also, that Graham and Gunn is part of Hickey Freeman, which part of HartMarx. The suits are made in the US and
    Canada. The display models looked generic, but perfectly respectable.

    Graham & Gunn is currently at Costco in Lawrence, NY. The suits range form $600-800 depending on fabric. The rep said they are made in Pennsylvania.

    $800 or $900 for a suit of unknown construction, unknown cloth quality, made by a scan and no human adjustment sounds like one of the worst deals ever. I can think of a couple of dozen better options than this.

    Although I have not posted a picture :foo: I was completely satisfied both in fit and fabric. Nothing special,i t was a standard Southwick 3B Lawrence with some adjustments. I gave it a shot because there's not many stores I can walk into and try on a size 35 jacket like I did here. I wish I had ordered a couple more - since costco's not partnered up with Southwick anymore, they told me I could order from any Southwick retailer - unfortunately it is a little over twice the costco price and not worth it.

    Looks like the latest iteration of the Costco Graham & Gunn roadshow will be in Washington, Virginia, and California (both SoCal & NoCal) in May.

    Here's a link: http://www.costco.com/Service/FeaturePage.aspx?ProductNo=11649430&cm_re=1-_-Right_Nav-_-MensSuits

    I may check it out. Don't need/want one of these suits, but I could definitely use some new everyday work slacks. The regular Italian-made Kirkland wool slacks have been a solid value at $50, but almost all of them come pleated/cuffs, and for a change of pace, I want some flat-front, plain-hemmed pairs. Curious to see what it'll be like.

    Mine didn't turn out so nice. It was a chest only canvas lined piece that fit well around the shoulders and the chest. However the arm holes were to large and low on the jacket that made moving my arms next to impossible. The sleeves were too long (perhaps to err on the conservative side). But then the pants were too tight and with no room leftover anywhere.
