For nearly seven decades, Paul Stuart has stuck to and perfected the all-American, high-prep, down-to-business aesthetic favored by Madison Avenue admen—think of it as where the Man in the Gray Flannel Suit might have shopped, if his holiday bonus came in on the hefty side. Outfitted with shiny oak woodwork, carpeted in rusty orange, navy and red, and furnished with slouchy, comfortable brown leather couches, the three-level store feels like a testosterone-soaked grand hotel or casino. The first and third floors, dedicated to menswear, are full of beautifully tailored shirts, sporting attire, sweaters, leather and wool outerwear, undergarments and accessories like grosgrain belts and suspenders, or braces; also on three are two gigantic rooms of swank formal suits, blazers and trousers. The second floor mezzanine houses the comparatively small women’s shop (with its conservative, but colorful, slacks, skirts, suits and blouses) and the menswear made-to-measure department, for gents longing to release their inner Cary Grant. And unlike the staff at many similar old-school places, the staff at Paul Stuart are entirely unpretentious and devoid of swarm. You'll find yourself trusting them before they've even sized you up.Sales
