I was at my local men's store today, and he had a nice navy blue coat on sale. It's made by Paul & Shark Yachting, and said the fabric is made by Loro Piana, and features their storm system. The coat fit like a glove. It retailed for 1500.00 but was marked down to 550.00, which is still a little pricey, but tempting. I'm not familiar with the brand, was wondering if there are any fans of Paul & Shark on here. Thanks. :confused:

They used to have a retail store in Atlanta; it was open a year or two, I think.

Kind of nice resort/sailing/golf etc. wear. I thought it seemed overpriced, but at their store they had big sales periodically.

I found the line to be overly "branded" myself.

Paul & Shark

It is an Italian company (notwithstanding the name...). I bought a couple of sweaters from them many years ago and I was quite surprised by how long they lasted and how well they held their shape.

I am not crazy about the style right now, but that is of course a matter of personal preference.

It's a high end casual clothing company, seemingly of better than generic quality. Probably over priced at full retail, but a deal @ 1/3. Grab it if you want it.

Flanderian called it. They are very pricey, very good quality and they offer a slightly weird assortment of clothes but I like all their sailing/boating related sportswear. They are also WILDLY knocked off and ebay is polluted with counterfeit stuff so you would have to tread super lightly picking up anything P&S on Ebay. One drawback as mentioned is that on some items they tend to plaster their logo all over it.

Some of their stuff is offered in Rochester Big & Tall, usually 6 to 10 pieces.

Made in Italy, bit pricey $350 for a cotton sport shirt, much like Cutter & Buck in cloth & color selection.

Bought a sweater & polo last year on sale...well made not really a full cut but not snug.

Consider I'm 6'2' & 275 wearing a 52 long coat & 45 waist.

Thanks for the reply's

Thanks fort he reply's. I wasn't familiar with the brand, but with your advice and some help from Google, it seems to be a good deal. Also, being made with Loro Piana material I don't think I can go wrong. Thanks again.

It was at Phipps in that little space to the right of the Tavern.

Before that store opened, they carried Paul & Shark at Saks. This was in the era when men's was on the main level, so it was mid-to-late 90s.

While I can't fault their quality, I was put off them by the fact that every airport and high-end mall in SE Asia seemed to have a P&S store. Irrational, but there it is.

Yes, and it's a fine brand. They have great collections of knitwears and coats. Also trousers and shirts.
Of course their coats are Loro Piana and not fake, be sure of that.
I like their products and to those who love the sea, they have a full collection of itens one can use on a boat. Visit their site: https://www.paulshark.it/eng.html and you won't regret it.
As for the price...well, italian products are never cheap, I think.

Cheers

I have worn Paul & Shark for a number of years. Great quality and decent styles. I currently have a few pairs of their shoes, several shirts, and a jacket.

Best brand for true "Italian" look. Very pricey!
