The Return of Norman Hilton Ivy Cut

I have an old Norman Hilton blazer from the 80s that is probably the finest RTW Ivy style garment I own. I believe it is called the Hampton model, with higher armholes and a trimmer silhouette (while still being a 3/2 dartless cut) than J. Press or (the old) Brooks. I now see that Nick Hilton of Princeton, NJ, is reviving the Norman Hilton name and introducing a new line of tweed sport coats, which he says are made in NYC at the same factory as some Ralph Lauren stuff. Does anyone know who this might be? Has anyone seen these in person? I was in Princeton a year or two ago and stopped by Nick Hilton's shop and spoke with him for a while. The custom clothing he had in his shop, which was quite pricey, didn't seem particularly nice to me for the money. I have no idea who makes it for him.

Very nice. Flapped patch pockets would have really nailed The Look.
