    That depends on the Hickey model. In looking at the link, the (white) sleeve tag looks like the tag for some of Hickey's cheaper clothes (I think this line is called the "Moda", but I'm not certain). Note that the gray suit that is also offered appears to have a black sleeve tag; the black tag is consistent with Hickey's higher end models. The higher end models include the Canterbury and the Boardroom, as well as an even higher end line called the Customized; the latter has more hand work than the Boardroom and Canterbury models, seems to be targetted more at the Oxxford buyer, and, at least usually, has a brown sleeve tag. IMO, if the suit is the Moda line, it's not worth it; if it's the Boardroom or Canterbury (or Customized), it's a pretty good deal.

    thanks for the reply. I did notice the sleeve tag was different, but being somewhat unfamiliar with HF didn't know which line it represented. A shame, as a 2 button navy pinstripe is what I am looking for. [​IMG]
