For many, including myself, Paul Stuart was the place to graduate to, or aspire to, if you felt Brooks Brothers was stuffy and too conservative. Â PS was the more sophisticated, more stylish cousin up the block. Grayson
Could not agree more. My dad always used to buy his shoes at Paul Stuart (I think they made by Edward Green then, not Grenson). The day I bought my own pair (on sale, thankfully) with money that I had earned from my first, real post-college job--it was a good feeling. Some members have posted about how PS often seems empty. In a perverse way, sometimes I don't think that's a bad thing. The store is an oasis of calm and its wares epitomize classic masculine style. Service is always attentive without being pushy. In short, it's a great place to take a breather from the otherwise frenetic Midtown streets. And it's one of the very few brick & mortar stores that I feel is worthy of my support.
