Is this a reputable maker? Â High quality? Â What do you think? Harrison Overcoat
Never heard of them. Any relation to the cloth manufacturer? They are first rate.
I just picked up a Hickey Freeman Collection overcoat that is 100% cashmere and very similar to this at Century 21 in NY. It was priced at $480 ($1800 retail).
I know nothing authoritative about the label, but I did get two "Harrison" ribbed cashmere turtlenecks through Bluefly last year; I believe those have been discussed here. Â To make this post even more non-committal: I can't decide whether I like them or not. That overcoat might be a good candidate for BF's liberal (read: universal) return policy--take one for the team, then let us know what you think.
I have a feeling this Harrison brand is a bluefly house brand.
Did you ever purchase this coat?
I bought a Harrison sweater from Bluefly and became suspicious. I believe they are definitely their house brand. There is nothing else about them anywhere.

What do you think of the quality and fit of the sweater you bought?
When I bought it, I don't think I was expecting great quality, since I had never heard of the brand. I just really wanted a sweater in a "dark chocolate"-like color. I bought the cashmere crewneck and the quality and fit is not too great. I wish it were more slim, for it fit like it was stretched out. I think it would make a perfect casual-event type sweater.
That was also my first cashmere sweater, so I don't know if my opinion should really be considered for I don't know how quality cashmere should feel or fit. I think I might be a bigger fan of wool. I really would like to hear someone's opinion on the overcoats, though. I wouldn't mind adding a gray one to my wardrobe. They really can't be that bad...or can they?
