Designed by Creative Director Ralph Auriemme for the quality and style conscious gentleman
NEW YORK, October 32022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Creative Director Ralph Auriemme was inspired by the image of an Edwardian gentleman for the new Fall of Phineas Cole 2022 collection this season. “The Edwardian Gentleman collection is for the modern man who wants to look well-groomed while feeling comfortable in his clothes. He is always well dressed, no matter where he is or what he is doing” , says Auriemma.
The highlight of this group is a custom woven silk evening jacket that features an Art Deco-inspired print of the city’s skyscrapers with a silk rope frog closure. Retail is $3295. It is simply paired with black wool flannel pants. There’s also a black cashmere sports jacket with a black velvet collar and hack pockets that pairs with a shirt in black and lavender stripes. The Harrier velvet slip-on loafers are our new classic style at Paul Stuart that complements this look perfectly.
For winter nights, there’s a long, hooded black down coat that’s definitely not meant for the ski slopes. For warmer days, a quilted gilet in soft nylon with a silver finish. A 3-piece suit in lightly constructed suede wool and an 8-button double-breasted jacket with bronze buttons in the same material sell for $1995. The pants in this collection feature saddle-back waistbands on the pants for added comfort. Auriemma says, “The Edwardian gentleman is classic in his tastes but modern in his sensibility and vision.”
Trevor ShimpkyCEO and President Paul Stuart says, “These new styles from Auriemma for the Phineas Cole collection are out of this world. These are stylish men’s clothes that will truly be collector’s items in a well-dressed man’s wardrobe.
Auriemma was inspired by vintage photos of well-dressed sportsmen for the Phineas Cole sportswear collection. These new styles are ideal for any activity that takes place outdoors, but are just as suitable for time spent indoors. The collection is filled with many classic chunky knit textures and various materials including leather, cashmere, paisley and checks. Auriemma says: “When I started designing this Phineas Cole collection, I went back to the original Scottish factories that the company has always worked with for the unique Fair Isle and Shetland sweaters and yardage for pants and jackets. “For example, there are Donegal tweed cashmere jumpers with pointed collars and cuffs to wear with a classic tweed sports jacket. There is a luxurious brown suede shirt with patch pockets and cargo trousers matching to wear with silk shirts that feature contemporary bird and butterfly prints retailed for $1195. Paul Stuart EnglishSuede Chelsea boots complete these styles with sturdy Vibram soles. Auriemma says, “All of these things bring me joy in design.”
The outdoor theme continues with a woolen safari jacket with a half belt for $1795 which pairs with a hunter green sweater. It is accessorized with an oversized silk scarf with an equestrian print. Bright yellow and purple shawl collar wrap cardigans can also be worn as a blazer. The finishing touch includes an oversized cashmere blanket scarf for $1295. New Made to Measure styles in this collection include the Cooper, a pre-washed cashmere corduroy suit with button-down zip vest in green, blue and burgundy.
