    My uncle was Dr. Charles C. Higgins. He has a surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic for his entire career. He died in 1989. He willed to me a beautiful vicuna top coat. I am trying to research the origin. The label on the coat is Schnitker Garmone Co. Cleveland. Does anyone have any information on this Men’s clothing firm. I believe the coat may have been made in the l950’s or earlier. Thank you. Tom Higgins

    It is entirely possible that your coat was made by Giovanni “John” Garmone who was a talented tailor in Cleveland for many decades at the turn of the century and beyond. His son was Fred W. Garmone (one of the original defense lawyers for Sam Sheppard).
