    I'm looking for versatile blazers. I think I'm a 46R.

      A decent Baracuta in tan in size 42 or 44. Can be the real thing or a good quality Van Heusen vintage.

            Any 38L/40L suits and/or sportcoats? Size 12/13 shoes too, provided they're gently used.

                          Just picked this up at a local Goodwill.


                          Anyone familiar enough with the brand to tell me anything about it? Will try to post a "How Does This Fit?" pic eventually.

                              Hickey Freeman is a very solid American suit maker. Their current mainline is very good - probably at the same level in the suit hierarchy as Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece and Canali.

                              I'm guessing your's is from the early 90s. Here's a conversation about the HF Boardroom from AAAC:

                              http://www.askandyaboutclothes.com/f...uot-circa-1993

                              Because of the styling trends at the time your's was made, it has a really low gorge. If the notch in the lapel is lower than your shirt collar points, it's going to look dated. Definitely post a fit pic when you get the chance.

                              I finally got around to taking some better pictures of a tweed sport coat I posted over on SF about a month ago.

                              Behold









                              This thing is stone cold mint, and dare I say NWOT.

                              I also found this exact sport coat along with it, but I gave (sold at cost) to a good friend:

                                Thanks for that link. Good info. I had heard the Hickey Freeman name floated about in reference to high-end, quality suiting. But, my concern was that maybe they put their name on a range of quality lines, from poor to stellar ala Ralph Lauren or even Brooks Brothers. I wasn't familiar enough to know if the item I picked up was the quote-unquote real deal.

                                That jacket you posted looks killer. A little more horsepower than I'd be comfortable with at this point, though. I'm still test-driving the whole idea of wearing sport coats myself. =)

                                As long as my daughter takes her nap today, I should be able to post fit pics.
