Certainly not a bad deal.However,I cannot recall seeing a true English bespoke Kilgour garment ever being offered.Kilgour,Huntsman,and Gieves and Hawkes,(though all famous Savile Row institutions),have allowed their name to be used for RTW garments.The Savile Row masterpieces originally tailored by these firms are seldom seen.

"Seldom" is far different from NEVER.

I think Kilgour French manufactures for Barneys and a few other stores in the US. This line is different to the Kilgour French line sold on Savile Row.

Kilgour "Made in USA" = Barneys. I like the drape and look of the fabric, though. At that price, a good deal for someone.

They always have a bunch of Kilgour at the Salvation Army for $15. I've never had the will to attempt a flip on them.

Andrew-Thanks for the tasty pictures of the original Kilgour garments.I especially like the cashmere hacking jacket.I recall you had a bunch of Sexton and Fallan garments on recently-all were too short for me at 29"jacket length.(Boo- hoo)Any future Savile Row "goodies" in the offing? Â
