Hickey Freeman Tuxedo

Hickey Freeman Tuxedo garments are crafted in the traditional American style with understated elegance, the finest fabrications and uncompromising quality. One of the things that you first notice when looking at a Hickey Freeman tux is the finesse and elegance of the fabric.

Textiles from the finest mills of Great Britain and Italy are woven from rich, lustrous yarns of silk and wool. The textures, colors and patterns are designed to ensure the distinctive, exclusive look that is definitely Hickey Freeman’s hallmark.

Hickey Freeman always uses the finest canvas for interlinings for his creations. Comprised of goat hair, the canvas front is an exclusive light-weight construction that adds a lasting shape and body to the coat’s front without the heavy stiffness of lesser quality canvas.

The hallmark of quality in this tux is immediately noticed in the graceful way the coat lapel rolls and in the way the coat hugs the chest like a second skin.

The coats of these tuxedos are lined with Bemberg lining of “gold standard” linings. Bemberg is a fabric that is milled from short cotton fibers. The fabric will never fade or shrink. Bemberg lining combines the smooth and soft feeling of silk with the easy care and absorbency of cotton.

The Hickey Freeman’s undercollar interlining for the tuxedo is made of fine Irish linen. The interlining has body characteristics and resilience that are transferred to the coat collar. The undercollar is made of two parts instead of one to ensure an easy, natural “hug” to the curve of the neck.

Hickey Freeman’s list of hand tailored includes: shoulder settings, hand-fitted armhole, hand fitted vents, hand sewn button holes and bar tacks, neck hangers, micro hand-stitched label, pressing and finishing of linings, side and shoulder seams, pockets, collar corner and vent felling. All these ensures that each and every tuxedo achieves that perfect feel, the precise fit, and the lasting impression that makes it feel like a second skin.
