Picked up this Hickey Freeman sport jacket today. It's 69% baby alpaca and 31% silk and VERY soft to the touch, despite the "rough" appearance. What do you think?

Looks nice. I do not really like the way Hickey Freeman fits me however, I needed to get both my jackets extensively tailored to fit me well enough.

Thanks. This one seems to be spot on OTR, but I've obviously yet to wear it out...

Yes, and now it's all cold and shivering in the bitter rain.

I like the color, it looks like it could be very versatile.

fabric looks very nice.

but I hope that's just the shape of the hanger because you might be walking around like Herman Munster.

Thank you, I think so too.

Hah, it's the way the hanger is hanging on the door - it's sticking far forward, making it look like that.

Nice colour, interesting texture - if the fit works should be good

I agree. It looks nice, but those buttons stuck right out along with the weird shoulders we already solved.

Hmm... I guess I don't know enough about sport jackets to understand why the buttons being arranged as they are is a bad thing.
