Jay Kos’s Vibrant Navy Mink Peacoat Priced at $25,000
Since starting his company in 1996, Jay Kos has provided New Yorkers with expert tailoring and a unique splash of color. His inspirations vary, drawing from the excellent clothiers of Milan and London and from everyday objects, such as a theater’s vintage wallpaper. It’s a characteristic of his work that translates to his shop. In his Park Avenue store you’ll find the designer’s own creation, an alligator vest, next to the more traditional blazers of familiar English brands such as James Lock & Co. and Edward Green.
Kos believes that there is a “psychological importance to fashion,” and the clothes he makes reflect his need for expression. His pieces allow customers a chance to better define themselves and even unleash their inner Oscar Wilde. According to Kos, the kind of man who he dresses is generally “incredibly discerning, but he also doesn’t take fashion seriously.” Kos chooses to work outside current fashion trends, and while his works serve a more eccentric clientele, quality craftsmanship and fine raw materials make these garments ideal for any man seeking a touch more luxury in his wardrobe. The tailor embraces the same attention to detail typical to Savile Row but his traditional cuts are tempered with playful mediums like hand dyed leathers and peridot cashmere. In addition, Kos offers the experience and personality only a practiced tailor could provide. His clients trust his opinion from style advice to which hotels they should book.
This fall, the highlight of the Jay Kos collection is a navy sheared mink peacoat. A staple item for the coming season, the piece’s soft mink makes this an exceptional variation on the classic coat. Its deep blue fur is both fun and elegant, a perfect complement to any attire. The peacoat is available for $25,000.
