Brand Announcement: Hickey Freeman
Built by two young entrepreneurs named Jacob Freeman and Jeremiah Hickey in the early years of the 20th century, Hickey Freeman’s plan was to bring high-quality hand-tailoring to men from coast to coast. As they envisioned it, a Hickey Freeman suit would be a testament to both the delicate artistry of hand-craftsmanship and the steady consistency of modern technology.
Their idea turned into an epic American success story.
Men of style and achievement such as Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Regan and Barack Obama have, for generation after generation, turned to Hickey Freeman for authenticity and quality, elegance and innovation. They still do.
Made in America in their factory lovingly referred to as “The Temple to Fine Tailoring” (or “The Temple” for short) — Hickey Freeman’s 77,000-square-foot facility in Rochester, New York — is where it has all been happening since 1912. Tailors from around the world gather in Rochester’s sartorial sanctuary to set sleeves and stitch collars and roll lapels. Each tailor has a different specialty, but they all share a common goal: to create suits that represent the very pinnacle of American tailoring.
“We built a business that has been built on a consistency of a quality product. The only way that we think you can get that is to have direct supervision from our quality people.”
-Walter Hickey Jr.
Every button is fastened with silk thread, and made of durable, rich and real, mother of pearl and water-buffalo horn. Suits are lined with Bemberg lining, the gold standard, which won’t fade or shrink. Fabrics come from the most prestigious weavers in Italy and the United Kingdom, and suits are cut using today’s state-of-the-art methods, and yet they uphold the standards of the world’s most revered bespoke tailors.
All these details create an American suit that looks and feels superior. Quality that is evident in the way the suit feels on your shoulders, along your arms and at your fingertips.
