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

    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? [​IMG]

    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.

    Crossposting from the thrift finds thread - hope this belongs here. Any guesses on the age?

    It has the 1962-76 union tag on it, and I'd guess from the HF tag that it's late-60's to mid 70's, so the latter half of that range.

    Oh, and really cool!

    Holy crap, guys. You're not going to believe what just happened! Just found out someone stole the couch out of my parent's basement, from when I was growing up!

    (JK, that think is killer!)

    Late 60s-early '70s pair of Edward Green for Brooks Brothers full brogues. These may come from shortly after Brooks Brothers acquired the Peal & Co. name, as the nail pattern predates the use by Green of rubber lifts.
