Anyone have experience with Hickey dress/sport shirts?

I have two sport shirts from last season... Both medium with added darts and they are slim enough. Quality is nothing special, but not cheap or anything either. Fabrics are nicer than I expected from them, although I want to say the shirts are still done in China.

I think I was told they switched manufacturers since then (dropping the quality of all their items), which is making me hold back on the Navy Chalk stripe suit on their website.

I have a couple of the OCBD, and like them. Fabric is very thick and substantial, and shirt is a relatively slim fit. I wouldn't pay much more than $100 for one though.

I have one I really like, too. $50 at FB last winter.

i believe there is a thread on hickeystyle in streetwear. I have found the quality of their shirts to be good, especially at the $50-$60 price range.

I just wish they'd lay off the f*cking pot leaf already.. I have passed on so many Hickey shirts because I did not want to have a gold embroidered pot leaf on my sleeve! HELLO!!!

I am tempted to try one of the suits, but have heard the fit is very slim. Anyone know how they compare to mainline Hickey Freeman?

I bought a Hickey suit when they were on sale last year. They are indeed very slim fitting. I'm consistently a 38 (with a 32 waist), but the Hickey 38 pull pretty bad at the button. Oh and the pants were extremely tight, and the rise was too low (maybe 9") for a work environment. I returned it and got something more appropriate for work.

And can anyone comment on the length of their dress/sport shirts? I'm 6'2"-ish, and I have a hard time finding shirts that are long enough in the torso. How does it compare to J. Crew, for example?
