For a brand that virtually no longer exists I sure do talk about Hickey a lot. After reading Angelo's (one of today's foremost Hickey historians) post today I did get a little nostalgic, I'll admit. If people are still writing blogs in 20 years or so, which is up for serious debate, I would not be surprised at all to see quite a few The Trad-esque style posts referencing Hickey as one of the great brands of our time that unfortunately feel by the wayside. There is a great tradition of men's clothing brands that rose almost as fast as they crashed and Hickey is no exception. I'll spare you any excessive praise, but if you really want to read about one of my favorite brands ever you can hit the tag at the bottom of the post. The purpose of all this, however, was to draw your attention to a great video circa early 2009. Below you can watch Hickey's extremely talented Design Director, Aaron Levine (now with Jack Spade), talk about the concept behind the brand at one of its Pitti Uomo showings. Looking back, would Hickey do things differently? I, obviously, can't answer that for them, but I truly hope they wouldn't change the clothes all that much. This stuff was, and still is, perfect.
