That's disappointing. I hope your issue gets resolved soon.
same. all my previous orders were lightening fast.

this one had one item that arrived to them "damaged" and then they refunded me for that but never shipped the two other items that were supposed to be available "next day" - this is 3 weeks ago. they keep telling me that they will ship the items out (a shirt and socks) but have not yet, despite my repeated email follow up and asking for tracking

I'm a fan of Harvie & Hudson shirts, but I'm looking at some of the shirts on sale at Drake's for the summer sale. I was wondering how the two compared. Are the Drake's shirts worth twice the price based on fabric, materials, and construction?

Can anyone comment on suit jacket length and buttoning point height? The tan cotton twill is calling to me but I'm a bit wary of the lack of L options. I'm about 6'1 for reference.
What chest size? I’m 6,1 and 40 chest and Drakes jackets are a bit better than most brands in terms of length and button stance but are still made to fit someone around 5,10 so I would prefer half an inch or so more length,

@Gus is pretty tall and owns a Drake's suit, I think. He can probably speak on this.

I'm 6'2", 180 and a 42 chest. I bought the Khaki twill suit earlier this Spring and was delighted by the length as I've given away all of my shorter jackets. Also, Mathew at the NYC store is your hight and build so feel free to call him and talk about fit. I found some of the suits that were a carry over from the prior year to be a bit shorter where the new 2019 SS models market easyfit

tend to be a bit longer.

I don’t have any experience with H&H but Drakes makes a darn fine shirt. Are they “worth it”? YMMV But I find the fit, quality and variety well worth the $$, especially when on sale. Their OCBDs, specifically are great. Awesome fabric, great collar roll., all around, they have become my favorite shirts.

I love how the Drake's instagram account responds to every question and always ends with "thank you"

Sale down to 50%. I’ve been waiting to get an overshirt, fortunately they still had my size.

Tried to swoop in on the tan cotton suit, timed out while processing payment twice and then both in my size gone, gah!
