Vintage HF cream shawl collar evening jacket, made for Walter BD Hickey, Jr. who was the President of HF in '64 according to this

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

MOP buttons

 

 

hand stitching under the collar, hand stitched button hole on the lapel

 

a hole I missed under the left arm. Only damage I could find. It's worth getting this rewoven, I think

 

 

Very nice spalla camicia

 

 

This thing fits me well, so I'm keeping it. What's the spot people sent stuff for re-weaving? Also, what does one wear with a cream evening jacket? Tux pants? Blackwatch plaid vintage BB flannels? devil.gif

Alex's re-weaving in Los Angeles does great work.  It can get pricey, but it's worth it for the right piece.

GM-H, what's up with your fox? He looks mighty offended.

grendel, the folks at Hickey might be interested in buying the jacket back. You never know. You can either add one creamy jacket to your wardrobe or cash it out.

Worth a shot... I'd trade it to 'em for a bespoke navy blazer. lol8[1].gif

Wool/cashmere blend, super thick and, other than its need to visit a dry cleaner and the possible replacement of one button, this thing is in excellent shape.
