    It's a rather high-end Italian sportswear company with an emphasis on yachting type clothing.

    Oddly, it has a large presence in China.

    Paul&Shark is one of my favourite casual clothing companies. It is expensive, but at least the quality is good, so you're not paying for the label. Or only for the label.

    I own some Paul&Shark sweaters, and some of them are 20 years old. Their quality is incridible. Try never to purchase them on e-bay (99% fake).
    I bought a few trousers on this SF (Edmorel and Chorse 123) made by Incotex for Paul&Shark. Authentic and VERY reasonable prices. a must in any men's closet ...[​IMG]

    I have a twenty years old henley-type sweater in thin off-white merino-wool. It's still got the original shape, and is only now getting noticeably worn. I took the labels off straight away when I bought it, and I've worn it extensively. I'm impressed with it.

    Its great stuff but i pricey. They make for the Italian Navy and have a good focus on technical yachting gear.

    The brand also has a Paul & Shark Club, where you receive a club card you swipe whenever making a purchase at their stores.

    Some of my favorite things; shirts, sweater, sailing/wet weather coats, shorts, tennis shoes etc. They have impeccable style and finish; the details are superb.

    It is better to look good than to sail good.

    I just noticed Paul&Shark had some suits in their spring/summer 2006 catalog. My guess would be "decent but way overpriced", does anyone have any real knowledge?

    Hello everyone I am new to this forum and I am a true paul and shark fan. I also have a wholesale paul and shark account and I am selling a lot of this stuff on ebay. All of my items are 100% authentic and my pictures including the tags prove this to be true (also please look at my feedback). I now have a lot of the paul and shark / loro piana colaboration jackets up for sale as well. Here is a link to my page so you can see for yourself. If you have any questions please email me at [email protected]


    Here is the link.

    Greeting to all Paul & Shark fans.

    I absolutely love ALL Paul & Shark items and have a strong passion for not only wearing it but to also share my great items at incredible prices with others who share the same passion as I do.

    I get all my items from the Paul & Shark store in Manhattan NY. My close family friend works there and I get my items at a significant discount because off that. So I recently decided to sell some items too see whether or not other fans will enjoy the significant discounted pricing.

    Here's a link to my eBay account. As you can all tell my feedback is superb. I also own a Sneaker & Clothing Store/Boutique in Brooklyn, NY called SneakerHeadQuarters.

    Let me know how I may assist you with any questions and/or concerns.

    Link to my eBay with all auctions:
