I was in a Jos Bank store in W. Palm Beach last week as I was bored and at a mall waiting for my wife. A lot of their stuff is just average, ill-fitting boxy stuff, but they had some really nice high-end suits, branded Jos. Bank,  super 150s, that they are introducing in some very select stores. They retail for about $1,500, which is probably abnout $750 more than they should cost, but they were very nice suits.

Some were made in Italy and others in the states. I figured the Italian suits might be made by Corneliani or Zegna or someone like that, but was wondering who in the states could make high-end Super 150s suits?  The salesman didn't know who made them for Jos Bank.

I know Oxxford obviously is high end, but who else in the states could be trusted to turn out high-qualiity Super 150 suits?

Certainly Hickey Freeman and Martin Greenfield would qualify (the latter makes suits under the Makers label for Brooks Brothers, for NM's Marcus line of tailored clothing, and private label suits for many others, along with custom suits). Also, perhaps Southwick/Greico, Linnett Ltd., and Norman Hilton would qualify. There are certainly a number of other US tailoring companies that could do this as well.
