The Made in America Report
Hickey Freeman and Hart Schaffner Marx (HSM) are two of America’s most iconic suiting brands. Hickey got its start in 1899 in Rochester, NY and HSM from Chicago, IL is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year. Needless to say these are two stalwarts in the canon of American menswear haberdashers. While many may be familiar with some aspects of each brand individually its difficult to summarize all of their accomplishments, innovations and overall effect on the retail industry and men’s suiting in genral…until now.
Hickey and Hart have recently published detailed infographics displaying and detailing their impact on today’s economy and their history of creating quality clothing and accessories. We’re proud to say that both of these brands are readily available right here in DC. Nothing we say can tell the story as good as they can, so here it is.
