The tailor’s label that’s found in an inner pocket dates this nice mens overcoat or top coat to 1984. Made from 100% black cashmere wool, this coat is sure to keep it’s owner quite warm in cold weather. Manufactured under the distinguished Hickey-Freeman label, this overcoat was sold at Larrimor’s in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It exhibits the many fine tailoring details that Hickey-Freeman was and is noted for. There is a notched collar with 4” wide lapels and the coat closes at the front opening with three round black plastic buttons. The sleeves are long and have notched turned up cuffs at the wrist. There is a patch pocket with flap on each side of the front of the coat and the insides of these pockets are lined with cream colored velvet. The shoulders are moderately padded and don’t have the extreme padding that was popular in the later 80s. There is a 21 1/2” center kick vent on the back of the coat as well as a belted detail that has two functioning round black plastic buttons. The coat is fully lined with black satin material and there is an inner pocket on the right side of the coat and slit pocket under the inside of the left lapel.
Classic and timeless style from a well known maker of men’s clothing, this 1980s Hickey- Freeman cashmere overcoat will be enjoyed by it’s new owner for many years to come!
Condition: Very Good
The substantial black cashmere wool material shows very little wear and appears to have been well cared for by the previous owner. The kick vent most likely had a small button that was used with the loop that is still present to keep the vent closed. The button is missing but would not be difficult to replace if the new owner felt that is was necessary. The vent lies flat as it is. The inner black satin lining is clean and not faded.
