Nubuck. Really nice too. I was tempted, but I dislike leather soles. With the beating I give my shoes, they'd last a week, and I'd have to make some adjustments to them to fit my "street" look.

Beat them to hell, then get a resole with Dainite teacha.gif

Any ideas on how I can purchase the tartan-looking coat?

My suggestions are as follows: Visit your nearest Paul Stuart (New York, Chicago, Tokyo, & Seoul). If you can't visit, pick up the phone and call them @ 800.678.8278

Looks like Cosplay. Some of the ties are nice. PS's window displays are always enticing, but when I go inside everything's in pastels or jewel tones.

spoke to the guys in PS, they can indeed make PC with straight pocket through MTM program at no extra charge. I am super tempted...

It fits extremely well for me off the rack, like almost zero alteration...

p.s. also they start selling Crockett Jones as well, all the stuff I saw were on 348 last, I can identify at least Hallam and Westbourne

Really? Can they make any of the sport coats or suits from the Phineas Cole MTM? Some of them aren't that pricy.

anyone know what the story is with those boots?
name? price?

i don't see them on the site, and don't remember seeing them when i was in the store.
the site has a dark bown suede jodphur, but i'm not sure if its the same pair.

Not sure if it's all of them, I bought one on sale item (non Phineas Cole) from him, and he was showing me PC stuff, I told me I love the fit, but hate the hacking pocket, not sure if he was doing it as a favor to get a sale or it's always the case.

Doesn't Ralph Lauren have more or less identical thing, the old stock used to be made by EG, newer ones (the one I had) was made in Italy for RLPL

Rubbish, they are in perfectly good taste. After all I buy it. That should be sufficient to tell you all you need to know.

But given your avatar, I suppose I comprehend how you came about your view. BTW the other PS lines -- including plain grey suits -- are still there ... so not to worry my man in the grey flannel suit.

I suppose not everyone can have the confidence to risk rocking the boat.

+1 on this. Phineas Cole is not for everyone. In fact, here in Chicago, a lot of the salespeople tried to dissuade me from the Phineas line. I think it may be a bit much for a lot of them. However, I think Phineas is doing its job - which is getting more people interested in (or re-interested in) Paul Stuart. As a young guy, I could buy suits from a number of makers. But with PC, you get the quality of time-tested menswear operations (PS and Samuelsohn) along with something a bit more interesting than your standard PS or Brooks Bros sack suit. While PC may be a bit more rakish than some PS clients are used to, it certainly got me into the store to spend a lot of money that might have otherwise gone elsewhere. So I feel good about buying PC because I am getting quality along with certain elements of that Paul Stuart timeless style.

+1.

The cut and craftsmanship on the whole PC line is superb. They prove that tailored clothing can still be fresh and radical. You do have to have the stones to pull it off, however. Their stuff takes confidence to wear.

Deepitm, given your avatar ... you are NOT the man in the grey flannel suit. That's refreshing!

As the kinds today like to say ... I'm certain you can 'rock' PC ... and I don't mean political correctness.
