Hey fellas. I don't know if this is the correct place to ask but does anyone know an estimated value for an early 1900s-1910s Hickey & Freeman Makers sack jacket in about a size 38 with a some alterations? Again, I apologize if this isn't the correct forum.
It would depend very much on the details. If it is a sack jacket in black or plain navy, probably between $100-200. If it has all kinds of rare details like belts or half belts or unusual pocket treatments, the price could climb. Condition is also a factor. Mothing, stains, sun fading, all of that will impact the value.
1910's to early 1920's German tailor-made 3-piece suit.
Fabric is soft-touch, not too heavy, marengo wool. Almost black, but with a hint of white.
It is an incredible rare find, because of it's near perfect condition (only the waistcoat lining and sleeve lining show some wear & age) and good size. It fits a 40 Long (European 50 Long) perfectly.
Natural shoulders, slightly flared skirt, angled chest pocket, high button stance and tapered fishtail trousers are some of the features of this suit.
