The World of Paul Stuart

"Our goal has never been to be the biggest, only the best."
Since 1938 Paul Stuart has been the leading arbiter of taste, style, and fashion for luxury menswear in the United States.

Founded by Ralph Ostrove and named after his son, the store has dressed world leaders, dignitaries, celebrities, titans of business, and anyone who expects the highest quality clothing and superior service, for over 70 years.

All the clothing Paul Stuart stocks, both men’s and women’s, bears the unique Paul Stuart label. To create the exclusive and unique collection for its worldly, discerning and stylish patrons, Paul Stuart buyers and designers scour the globe searching for the best fabrications and the most innovative clothing designs and details. Since Paul Stuart clothing can only be found at a Paul Stuart store, of which there are only three in the United States, or online, a Paul Stuart customer stands apart from the crowd. He knows that he’s not wearing the same suit as everyone else.
In the fall of 2007, Paul Stuart launched Phineas Cole, the first new brand in the luxury clothier’s 70-year history. The Phineas Cole brand is firmly rooted in the heritage and tradition of Paul Stuart, but it offers a reinterpretation with a slimmer, more contemporary silhouette. Phineas Cole embodies an aesthetic that brings the dramatic side of Paul Stuart into sharper focus.

The Paul Stuart Point of View

Paul Stuart’s roots are in soft shoulder clothing, over the years the store and the brand have been influential in helping to redefine the American tailored look into the slimmer more international silhouettes of today. In fact, Paul Stuart has a long history of bringing innovations and new styles into American menswear. For example, Paul Stuart was the first U.S. retailer to introduce side vents and three-button suits.

While the Paul Stuart collection has evolved and transformed over time, Paul Stuart’s unique point of view on style has remained the same: A man should feel comfortable and relaxed in his clothes, he should be unique, and he should care about the details.
The Closest Thing to a Savile Row Experience Outside of London

At Paul Stuart, tailored clothing is an art—a craft of quarter inches. The attention to detail is unparalleled in the United States and rivals any luxury clothier throughout the world. Details ranging from the width and shape of Paul Stuart ties to the shape of its shirt collars and even the button positioning on its shirts are all considered to fit a myriad of shapes and sizes. In fact, Paul Stuart offers half-sizes on all of its shirt and suit options, a grand tradition that has long been abandoned by most. Paul Stuart garments are all hand-sewn, using state of the art interlinings and canvas so that the suit molds to the body. The final touches to every tailored garment are completed in Paul Stuart’s in-store tailor shops.

Paul Stuart, Inc. is headquartered in New York, and has remained in its original location since opening in 1938. Though a much larger store now than when it first opened, the Paul Stuart flagship, which has expanded to 60,000 square feet, is located within the heart of New York’s most fashionable shopping district at the landmark corner of Madison Avenue and 45th Street. In addition, Paul Stuart’s “Townhouse” resides in one of Chicago’s premier luxury shopping destinations on East Oak Street, and in 2011 a second location opened in The Loop (Chicago’s financial district) at the corner of LaSalle and Adams Streets. Paul Stuart also has numerous locations throughout Asia.

“Our goal has never been being the biggest, only the best”. Paul Stuart‘s goal, arbirter elegantiae of American classic man style since 1938, has been reached.

Only three stores between New York and Chicago, an e-commerce to buy menswear and womenswear items, and a wide choice of clothes and custom-made new looks to satisfy customers from all over the world.

Since 1938, Paul Stuart has dressed world leaders, dignitaries, celebrities, titans of business, and those who love bespoke quality, elegance, style hunters, searching for the best fabrics and the most innovative clothing designs and details.

Paul Stuart’s story came from Mr. Ralph Ostrove and his son, who gave the name of the brand.

A story that was also good at looking at the contemporaneity.

In winter 2007, in fact, Paul Stuart launched the new collection Phineas Cole, the first after 70 years of brand’s history.

With the slimmest fitting ever realized in U.S. (an icon for Paul Stuart), the Phineas Cole’s mood is made by side vents and three-button suits.

So, this is the spring summer collection 2014. If the story of Paul Stuart has grown, its philosophy is still the same: “A man should feel comfortable and relaxed in his clothes, he should be unique, and he should care about the details”.
