E. Formicola for H. Stockton
Navy Handmade Wool/Cashmere Ponente Top Coat
H. Stockton is excited to launch our partnership with Errico Formicola from Naples, Italy. Mr. Formicola, after honing his craft with 30+ years in the men’s clothing trade, decided to pursue his vision of building a brand that encompasses Neapolitan tailoring at its pinnacle. Synonymous with soft, light and functional, this Neapolitan mindset is everything we think clothing should be! Beginning with beautiful 6-fold neckwear and hand-sewn shirtings, Mr. Formicola has since expanded to include truly artisanal tailored garments. We believe clothing should be well made with the intent to be well worn, while offering great value to our clients. It has been a pleasure to develop some of the most beautiful pieces we have offered at H. Stockton.
When we started in 1963, soft-shouldered tailored garments were the gold standard in the clothing industry. While the American tailoring houses and their Italian counterparts have a different definition of "soft" from a construction standpoint, the obsession with comfortable, natural clothing grew out of the same mindset: clothing should look like the wearer, not the manufacturer. This collective mindset is one of the reasons we were drawn to E. Formicola.
This overcoat is incredible. Hand-crafted in Naples out of a luxurious wool/cashmere cloth, it's one of the most comfortable pieces of outwear we've ever made. The soft, light construction means it's natural and comfortable over just about anything, while the cloth is dense and warming; a perfect Atlanta overcoat. The collar looks great standing up and it's cut a bit shorter in length, easily worn dressed up or down. Throw this on with a charcoal suit and ancient madder tie, it's unbeatable, while looking just as good with a pair of moleskin trousers, a shawl-collar sweater and Alden boots. We've never seen or felt a coat quite like this one.
If you're searching for a close-to-perfect coat for all-around wear, we've just made it for you.
