    Hi, I should know since I've bought two, but I haven't really worn them and don't have them with me, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me fused or canvased, etc.
    they have handstitching on the lapels, come with unfinished sleeves, and are pretty nice in general. Just wondering if you could tell me if they are canvased, I suppose.

    Yes, but they're overpriced.

    They're canvassed and made by Cheshire Clothing, the successor to Chester Barrie. They're nice. Inasmuch as most high-end clothing is overpriced at retail, I suppose that you could call them overpriced. Compared to other suits of similar quality, they're not.

    exactly. I got the first for full retail when Saks first carried them. I thought it was a good deal for what it appeared to be. Hield sent me a tie to show their appreciation. The second I got ~ 50% off. With sales coming up, I'm thinking of doing it again.

    I've used their (very) heavy flannel for bespoke suitings, but didn't know (or hadn't known until Beaman pointed the fact out recently on AAAC) that Hield made ready-made.

    I concur, at retail, they represent an excellent value.
