Men’s Style. Banking on a Fashion Investment. The Arnold Brant $6000 Sportcoat. Second City Style Fashion Blog

November 8, 2007 • Holiday


This is for the man who has everything and the woman who has no limit on what she’s willing to give. Indeed, Arnold Brant has created a singularly spectacular sportcoat.

Known for sportcoats and suits created in seductively tactile fabrics, and based in a selection of seasonal luxury fabrics like cashmere, mink, chinchilla, and bamboo, Arnold Brant steps up the luxury factor with its vicuna offering, highlighted in a palette of crisp colors of iron, caramel and sepia tones.   Vicuna—a relative of the llama and the alpaca—produces small amounts of extremely fine wool, which is very expensive because the animal can only be shorn every 3 years. When knitted together, the product of the vicuña’s fur is very soft and warm.

“To stand out from the clutter of what we commonly see in the menswear industry—we made a conscious decision to strip that away and focus on sexy, luxurious,  and product driven collection with attitude—drawing the consumer into the sumptuous textiles so that they feel the warmth of the line before experiencing the line first hand,” says Traci Young, Vice President of Marketing for Arnold Brant.

So forget about the quick cheap thrill of labels who claim to be luxe– but don’t have the the cultured sensibility and quality craftsmanship worth the big bucks. Make an investment in an Arnold Brant, instead. Available at Nordstrom (go to
