And that wasn't the only order he placed. I've got a story in my files that MacArthur contacted the Cavanagh Park Avenue store, in 1943, I think, and placed an emergency order for a hat replacement, as he didn't have any left to wear. They had all either been worn to death or left behind during the course of the war. I'll have to dig out the story to get the details right.Originally Posted by Philip K Nelson
Nice to know the first part of the story, because I couldn't tell for sure that MacArthur was a C&K customer, but just had assume he was prior to ordering the replacement.
Wow, the vest correction does up, doesn't it?
Dreispitz posts a picture of MacArthur's hat that blew me away- the only closeup I had was from the Getty file. I was going to buy it but there registration site is a dog- I could find no was to describe my self, a retired OB-Gyn now botanical gardens photographer- so I gave up.
Then Brad comes on with a follow-up to the C&K hat purchase by MacArthur. Talk about synergy!

Uh, those were IVORY handled pistols...only a pimp from a cheap New Orleans whorehouse would carry pearl-handled pistols, or at least that is what George C Scott said in the movie...
