The Hickey Freeman company was started in New York City in 1899 by Jacob Freeman and Jeremiah Hickey. They were known as being a manufacturer of high quality clothing and suits for men and boys. They revolutionized ready to wear suits in the early 1900’s and made it possible for men to enjoy hand craftsmanship with their clothing. Throughout the years Hickey Freeman has undergone several changes as they have grown and acquired other manufacturers while expanding their own clothing line. They have always remained consistent to their values and have provided high quality clothing and outstanding selections in men’s suits.
What To Look For When Buying A Suit
While it is an important necessity for men to have a nice suit ready to wear whenever they might need it many men do not know how to go about the process of getting themselves a good suit. One cannot simply walk into the nearest clothing store and pick something up. There are several things that men must look for when they shop for a suit. Here are a few tips to help men find a truly exceptional suit to wear.
* Avoid Bargains – a good suit will be worn many times and should be a reflection of your own personality and charm. If a suit is presented at a great discount there is probably a very good reason. Likely the material is inferior or the cut is wrong. When you buy a suit find one that you perfectly. You might have to spend a bit more money but it will be worth it in the end.
* Know Why You Want It – the type of suit you get will be determined by why you need it. Is the suit for work or for a special occasion? Is it for a funeral or for going to court?
* Test the Fabric – when looking at suits take time to consider the type of fabric that the suit is made of. If you squeeze the fabric between your fingers and it bounces back with little resistance and no wrinkling, then it is made from a good material. If the material feels loose then it will not be as sturdy and will not hold up as well.
* Get the Right Fit – the shoulder pads in the suits jacket should be square with the shoulders and not droop off the shoulders or leave dents in the fabric.
