Was in NM last call yesterday and checked over some HF Madison suits (not Ltd line) and they appeared to be fused. I own two Hickey Freeman suits both of which are canvassed. I know the Burberry suits made in USA by HF are fused but I thought the HF suits above the Ltd were all canvassed. FWIW the lapels are canvassed but I guess they are going cheaper overall. My method is to rub the sleeve and the material from the front of the jacket - if it is fused the jacket front will be thicker and heavier than the sleeve and if it is canvassed they will feel exactly the same. Can anyone confirm this or perhaps I am just off in my canvas testing?
