    [​IMG] This is an all-cashmere overcoat from Hickey-Freeman. What would you call this lapel style, and is it classic? Logically, I suppose, it's just an extremely narrow notch, but it looks different enough that I thought it might have its own name. Also, if anyone can comment on the general construction quality of HF's formal outerwear, or give a ballpark vintage and retail price for this coat, I'd be much obliged...

    1 MILLION dollars. [​IMG] Err, sorry. Not sure what this vintage is worth, but the lapels aren't that different from what you see on a lot of raincoats and such. Probably these types of coats go for $1K or so right now, ballpark.

    If new $1500+ would be it retail price, and $300-$400 would be a fairly low price on sale; NM sale price would likely be $600-$700. If used then $100-$200 would be good price at a vintage store for end of season.
