I'm wondering if it's a women's jacket based on button orientation (although it does indeed look like a men's jacket), so I have no clue how that would translate.

Yeah unvented. Ruh roh about the gender gap. Was with men's coats, looked like a man's coat... Hrm...

That coat looks like it is of the women's variety to me.

+ 1

Unvented is not necessarily old.

About 60% of all jackets in a Giorgio Armani store I recently looked at were unvented.

Saw a Bottega Venetia suit from a very recent collection - ventless.

Recent Canali suit sitting at Off Fifth = ventless.

True, over here in most high scale department stores, ventless pieces are not very common. When I was in Italy around 6 years ago, many many suit jackets and SC's were ventless. I have no idea what it is like today, but 6 years is not that long ago.

My summary: Ventless is not out of date at all, it is just an old wives tale that ventless = 1980's / prehistorical bollocks.

This is the same tag on my Cable Car Clothiers Cashmere SC. CCC is a historical high end men's department store in SF. As to who make their stuff, I haven't done enough research to answer that. But nevertheless, that's a huge clue. Please let us know if you find the answer. Now I'm going to resume doing unproductive stuff...

Now that Hickey Freeman owner HartMax is bankrupt, and the suitors are groups that previously bought brands and moved production abroad, should we start stocking up made in USA hickey freemans in case they go up in value?
GMMcl didn't you work for HartMax at one point?

the styling on that jacket is super old. while some old stuff (like 60's era mad men style skinny lapel suits) might look good to today's eyes, that jacket is definitely old-looking in a bad way.

i don't know anything about flippability of dated-looking clothes, but for personal/trading use, i would have definitely left that on the rack. i've said this before, but guys in this thread get too hung up on labels. a good percentage of stuff that gets posted in this thread looks mega-dated, irrespective of label.

also, are you sure that hugo boss isn't an orphan?

Yup, feels good when you finally get comfortable leaving a Canali or Zegna jacket because it looks super old.

Jetted pockets and that gorge uhoh.gif

To your question, buttons on the left, you sure it's not just a size 4?

+3 - guess is womens and pockets and gorge - ugh

the first time you (finally) drive to goodwill to re-donate the giant, soul-crushing, closet-eating pile of orphaned suit jackets, old canali proposta, triple-pleated zanellas and moth-eaten oxxford that nobody wants to buy or trade you for, your opinion might change.

it happens to everybody once they've been on the thread for a while.
