    Nick Hart Austin Reed suits

    Just wondering what people's views are on these?

    I have a Chelsea cut Austin Reed suit that still needed taking in a bit but is now an ok fit. The new AR Red suits by Nick Hart look really sharp but are apparently quite 60s/jazz influenced, with modern feel. Not sure if they will date really bad or if they have enough appeal to be a worthwhile investment. The lack of variety of colours is a bit of a let down, not sure if more are.going to drop soon.

    They are clearly a very narrow cut. The collars are very slim indeed. So there is a risk that in a few years time these won't look so much razor sharp as last year's fashion choice.

    That said the slim cut suit is likely to be about for a few years yet. And the quality is likely to be very decent.

    I recently bought one of their 'Cut' range - designed by Richard James - in the sale. Very nice it is too - slim fitting, but with a strongly traditional British tailoring heritage and look.
