I'm getting married in October and I'm planning to order at MTM 3 piece suit in navy blue. I'm 6'3", 215 lbs, which I'd imagine might help in giving any advice. Right now I'm looking at either Southwick or Hickey Freeman. They would be around the same price, because I'd be getting the Hickey Freeman at Nordstrom's anniversary sale. Here are my questions: 1. My impression from this forum and others is that the construction on Hickey Freeman tends to be of higher quality than Southwick. Is this generally true? 2. One of the downsides of the Nordstrom anniversary sale is that they only offer one solid navy fabric as part of the sale, and being new to the MTM game, I don't know how good it is. (It's labeled simply as "100% Worsted Wool" with no super number or branding or anything. If anyone has seen Nordstrom's offerings for this sale and can comment on the quality of the fabric, that would be appreciated. 3. Another thing I'm wondering is whether I'm better off going to a smaller shop than a big department store, since a smaller store seems like it might offer more attention. 4. Are all H-F suits fully canvassed? I've seen mixed information on this. If they are not all fully canvassed, which ones are and which ones aren't? The prospect of fully canvassed is definitely one of the appeals of the H-F suit, but only if I know which one to order. (I'm assuming the H-F Handstiched line is not available at Nordstrom, although that sounds like it's their best line.) 5. If anyone in the Boston area has experience at Andover Shop, Drinkwater's or Nordstrom (either Burlington or Natick) and can comment on positive or negative experiences there, that would be great as well. 6. Finally, I'm going to explore the option of doing a Samuelsohn, although that may push out of my price range (Around 1600 or less is where I'd like to end up.) If I can find a Samuelsohn that works, where do they fall in the quality spectrum with H-F and Southwick? Thanks in advance for any advice. I've really been enjoying reading and getting to know this forum lately.
