In June of last year, Hardwick was sold and the new owner hired Jeffrey Diduch to do some design work on the line. Diduch runs the "Made by Hand" blog http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.com/ (just scrolling down 3-4 posts should give you some sense of his knowledge/experience).

Recently, they won a "Made in the South" award from Garden & Gun Magazine. In the article Diduch talks a little bit about the new designs: “Everything needed to be redesigned from scratch.” http://gardenandgun.com/article/sixth-a ... s/page/0/7

I didn't see any sacks on the new site, but, IMO, the jackets look much better than they did a few years ago--specifically in the shoulders, which was my main problem with them before.

Has anyone tried any of the new models? What do you think?

I have tried on their new soft jacket and their standard suit jacket(not the trousers). The soft coat runs trim, and the standard is true to size.

They are not offering a style that many in this community would prefer. Mostly two button, dual vent styles(which is am totally fine with). That being said, the cut is very nice and the fabrics are well chosen. You will find a number of fabrics with a small amount of lycra, but the hand is nice and they offer a number of nice choices. I am actually considering getting a blazer from them for travel purposes.

Jeffrey D knows what he is doing. He is offering something that is well made, well cut, and very affordable. It may not be to everyone's tastes, but I think even the stodgiest of us wouldn't have many negative comments about the garments.

I ordered a poplin suit from O'Connells last winter and returned it because the shoulders were anything but natural and I never picked one up. I see Hardwick offers a poplin suit at $395 which is a mighty fine price. The description says the jacket is non-darted, but the picture indicates a dart. If the shoulders feel as good as they look, I will happily purchase with the darts.
