Metro Man & Metro Home

By Kim Taylor

Gentlemen, if you’re looking to blend the best of Italian men’s clothing with fine English tailoring and a touch of artful color, Jay Kos should be your destination.

This sophisticated line is focused on fit and color, and pieces are suited to the male form. Small, cottage industry factories are used to produce this line with integrity, and color inspiration is drawn from around the globe.

Visit the Jay Kos store in midtown at 475 Park Avenue, 212-319-2770, or peruse the site at On the website, you’ll find the Bon Viveur Guide to Epicurean Delights — a melding of fashion and food in the Blog section, which is devoted to mouth-watering coverage of the saffron risotto in Milano, black truffles, Fideo soup, Winter Meatballs, raw food, and other savory and sweet culinary experiences. It makes sense to fuse food with fashion, since cooking can be just as creative, food just as colorful, and the end result equally as satisfying.

Jay Kos offers artisan pieces that can be handed down through the generations but will never seem dated as long as quality is appreciated. Essential Jay Kos articles include a silver monkey belt buckle on soft brown leather, navy sheared mink peacoat, hand-dyed belts, classic brown hats, soft green cashmere jackets, green or gray goat leather jeans, alligator skin jeans, and rose gold monkey rings.

Questions? Email, or stop in the store and sate your curiosity – and your desire to dress your best.
