How would you rate it? I'm considering an olive corduroy sportcoat from them.

Most of their stuff I've seen has been good to very good, in the range of H-F or maybe a bit below, and some of the better stuff was made by Chester Barrie.

I had some AR shirts in the past. I'd put them below Lewin/Tyrrwhitt/Pink.

Alot of the Austin Reed stuff Holdfast wears in the pics thread looks rather nice, though of course that doesn't speak to the quality.

Yes I know Hickey-Freeman is owned by Hart, Schaffner, & Marx, but Austin Reed is a glued peice good that has a more european cut than a HSM. I would not buy it, because glued garments have too short a life span. One bad dry-cleaning and the garment can be permanently puckered.
