Yes, even the elegant Haymaker label which used to make better-quality sportswear in the Fifties got into the boxy leisure-suit styling by the mid-Sixties. This one’s a tiny size 10 (unbelievable!) and you can see that it’s still very well-made.
So, that’s why it is collectible – for the label and the company’s history. Otherwise, it’s just a good example of fashion trends gone wrong and the slow demise of high-quality and elegant clothing construction which was beginning about the time this jacket was made.
Sigh. However, that situation does make my adventures all the more fun . .. . . . . . . . . . . .
