Why is HF trying so hard? Stick to what you are good at..I’m sure tons of the people that work at HF skate…please.

wow… I like it.

I like it, but wouldn’t bet the farm on hoards of skinny fifteen year old skaters making dandyism a trend.
Reminds me of the Carnaby Street look c. 1966. Those were good days. The look extended down to the trou and shoes though. And there were Monkey boots which someone should bring back..made a great sound.
I like the trim cut through the arms. Look to be skinny notchless lapels. Built up shoulders.
Crappy jeans and PF flyers derivative of grunge. Hasn’t Grunge come and gone already? … like fifteen years ago?
I love the hair thing hangingdown. I have a nephew in his “wookie” period. No one has seen his face in months.
Is that a Canabis leaf on his buckle? Do children still smoke weed? I thought it was only for geezers like me.
Things just keep getting peculiarer.

It all seems rather pretentious to me. No substance, all show.

Did anyone else have a flashback of the show “Fresh Prince of Belair”?

That’s a jacket so ugly not even Will Smith would have worn that.

Hmmm… looks like HF is trying to out Etro Etro. The jackets look like a nice slime fit, and I like that they paired the jackets with very Ivy league (albeit much slimmer than traditional Ivy league a la J. Press) pieces. I wonder whether they will alienate their core customer though. On the other hand, Gieves seems to be doing okay with their new approach, (much to the consternation of the fuddy duddies) so maybe this will work. Bergdorfs is carrying the line. Should work there. HF will, imo, have to be *very* careful about distribution of this new line….

I would be surprised if it was any of the traditional HF stores, or at least in the same department as HF.
This is a new market segment for them, it could bring in a lot of new business without ever effecting their core business.
Hickey is for Bergdorfs type stores and HF is for Marshall Fields oops I mean Macy’s type of store.

the print on the jacket in the middle pic is totally killer. esp because it looks like swanky baroque-inspired upholstery fabric. yeah its carnaby revivalist and yeah its really etro, but theyve got me wanting to go down to neimans to try it on! maybe theyre onto something? id rock it with a gingham orange dress shirt and white jeans and old varvatos chucks out to drinks on a saturday night in the summer. hell yeah!

Didn’t you see the episode when Will was just starting prep school and he turned the uniform blazer inside out- to reveal a crazy pattern similar to the one in this post.

Wow, I can’t believe those are HF!! I LOVE the jacket shape/cut. The top 2 aren’t my cup o earl grey for fabric but I could see myself wearing the bottom plaid one easily.

that third look. I would do just about anything for that boy in that outfit!

love the middle and bottom pictures…it has an academic modern look…

personally, I believe this look could finally inspire men to go out and be different. It makes the impression of being comfortable in tailored items… I think it would make a guy look pretty good!
