    Hoping that wasn't a precursor to Hickey Freeman. Probably should have taken it as it was nice enough.

    Picked this up on the cheap, if anyone needs a hunting vest. 1950s, I think.

    Smallish medium.

    As for h Freeman and sons, it's different from hickey Freeman. It's an old brand out of Philly that I think is now defunct. Their stuff is quite good and they're well regarded. Bad pass if it's a suit in good condition.

    RTC: Dude. Spoiler or edit. Srsly. And PM him about specific transactions. As for H Freeman, I have newfound respect for them based on a new SC Hooker sent to me. I'd never been overwhelmed by their stuff before, but this is pretty nice. Also fits me like a glove.

    Yes, certainly not defunct. Still due MTM and house brands for the few remaining independent shops out there.

    It's pretty great stuff. I see a lot of it since I am in Philly. Passed on a couple with Loro Piana fabric last week in a size 40S or so. It is a shame it doesn't get much more love. And they are still in business btw.

    Bro, I miss seeing that little stuffy fox. Do more fit pics so we can look at it, yes? [​IMG]

    Thanks, bro! However, I was competing with the entire San Jose folks plus their mothers! Crazy out there!
    Well, according to the lunar calender, I'm 33. But according to the solar calender I'm 32. lol
    Thanks, buddy!

    I would gift them to a female friend than trying to hit up flea bay.

    Nat! Thanks for answering all of my annoying phone calls just so I can hear your funny accent! [​IMG]

    Never found anything by this outfit before. Waxed cotton. It fits but is available--just not my style.

    Not sure if this mark on the liner--50/50 cotton-bemberg--is some sort of intentional hipster thing:

    Re-sale wise Comfy doesn't get much love due to the fact that is was a smaller, more obscure label. Quality wise it's a great buy and for me personally, a definite buy. If you ever decide to part with it (and it's a L/XL...hell, maybe even a M), let me know. I bought that exact Comfy goose down vest in dark blue with a lighter blue inside (it was reversible) from my local Salvation Army in the late 90's for $3.50. It was NOS from the early 80's, still had the tags and the receipt from 1982 was in the pocket. I wore the hell out of that thing. I still have it to this day. It's dirty and has tons of snags, but it has a lot of sentimental value to me. It's way too small for me now (it's a size S), but I'd like to have a similar one again. I'll see if I can dig it out and snap a picture.
