The Tailored Woman store, circa 1967
I received permission from the generous and talented Dave Hay to post this photo of the Tailored Woman store, taken as part of a series of photos of Midtown when Dave was newly-arrived in the city in 1967. I love this shot of the corner of 57th and Fifth. The building, which still houses Bergdorf Goodman, looks very much the same today.
Always happy to meet a fellow Wasp; there are so few of us left out there!
I promise I have been posting in 2011, albeit not as often as I should. If you type in www.thetailoredwoman.com, that should take you to my latest post.
Thanks for reading.
2nd line: Fifth Avenue and Fifty-Seventh, NY
I had it refurbished about 10 years ago, but I would love to know its worth at this time. It is a beautiful style, full jacket with rolled cuff and shawn collar. I feel it looks like sable, but she called it her mink. Where can I find out more about this jacket? I live in Dallas, and never get a chance to wear it. I am considering selling it, but have no idea the value. Can you help me?
Thanks for much for visiting and leaving a comment. Your fur sounds lovely. I wish I could give you some advice but I am not an expert in furs, though I do know the Tailored Woman store had a reputation for quality. Is there a furrier locally who could give you an appraisal?
I worked for Tailored Woman in the early 60's, I knew Mr.Denton. He was such a gentleman. I have a cute story about him. Would you care to hear it?
Thanks for your comment. I'm afraid I'm not an expert in valuing any Tailored Woman items, but the jewelry sounds beautiful! Do you know what it is made of?
