    Just received Press's latest missive in the post.

    They note that (some) of their suits and (all) of their jackets are made in Canada.

    Anyone know who this maker might be?

    A couple of their tweeds are really smashing. Esp. the first one pictured.

    Don't know, but the one high quality Canadian suit/jacket maker I'm aware of is Samuelsohn. They make suits for Paul Stuart, among others.

    Silverstone, or more likely, Cambridge - both decent, old style manufacturers.

    I'm curious about the identity of Press' maker, too. Of the obvious Canadian manufacturers (Coppley, Peerless, Jack Victor, Lou Myles, Balfour, S. Cohen, and those already mentioned above), Samuelsohn seems the least likely because its prices are typically too high. I haven't heard of Samuelsohn offering a lower price shop (though it's not impossible). There are plenty of other qualified candidates.

    Thanks to everyone so far for their info.

    This leads me to ask:  how many good-quality American suitmakers are left?  Obviously, Southwick, Oxxford, Hick-Free, Mark Greenfield, and I don't know who else.
