Behar Braves the Cold

Cuban-born, Florida-based tailor Ike Behar is well-known for his luxurious men’s dress shirts, particularly the brand’s upscale, Miami-made bespoke collection of featherweight sea island cottons designed to help beat the summer heat. Now the family-owned company is braving the cold with its newly launched line of signature outerwear, produced in collaboration with New York–based coat maker Harbour International.

Made from plush materials such as camel hair, shearling, cotton twill, leather and suede, the initial eight-piece line of coats, blousons, and vests, priced from $395 to $2,200, is set to debut at select Saks Fifth Avenue stores this month. Among the highlights is a zip-front car coat made from Spanish shearling; a slim-cut, four-pocket lambskin walker; a shapely quilted suede vest; and a completely reversible solid-to-plaid cotton blouson with Italian Thermore insulation.

According to the founder’s son and company president, Alan Behar, all of the jackets incorporate the most advanced weather-treatment technologies, including Loro Piana Storm System, to render them both waterproof and wind resistant. Behar insists they are also distinguishable by their myriad details, including fur collars, tab cuffs, dual-entry pockets, and leather piping and trims throughout. “Our sensibility is American in fit and shape, modern in color and fabric, and manufactured with the same impeccable tailoring standards that my father has made famous,” Behar adds.
