    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.

    ^ Not only is that HF awesome, its got serious provenance. Amazing find. Since you are keeping, can I ask what you paid for that?

    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?
