I suggest that you take the coat to a furrier if you cannot determine whether the collar is real fur or not, or if so, what kind. I would want to see that in an Ebay listing. A skilled tailor can tell you if the fur collar can be removed without much difficulty or not. He might also tell you if the sleeves can be let down to enable you to wear it (if the coat is the right length). It may have already been pointed out in an earlier reply, but the coat is not made by Hickey...
Your coat is beautiful, especially the lapels! How about a picture from the back?
No, Samuelsohn is better.
Cuffs, of course! If you want further support for this choice, look to sartorial icons from the great days of men's clothing. To name but a few: The Duke of Windsor, Fred Astaire, Anthony Biddlle, Cary Grant, etc., etc., etc. As has been pointed out here before, cuffs can be removed, whereas plain bottom trousers cannot have cuffs added.

Vince of Artona (store name) on Mack Avenue in Grosse Pointe would be a good choice. Vince is a highly skilled tailor and very pleasant to talk to. If you saw the movie Gran Torino, Vince appeared as the tailor who fits Eastwood's in a suit. The scene was shot in Vince's store.

This, however, is excellent advice. +1. Also, a cummerbund gives a longer and more...
Rick, I am sure that those are formal shirts. I gather that you doubt that because of the colors that some were made up in? Many old line English makers (New & Lingwood, for one) offer formal shirts in blue as well as pink and cream ( silk). If the buttons are not attached to a cloth strip for removal and substitution of studs, that would be an oddity for a formal shirt. Cheers! RBP

No, no no. It's AE code for Vox and for second. W split is two Vs (Vox) squared, or V2. The 2 equals second/s. Am I the only guy aside from Vox who knows this?
