Within the comfortable atmosphere of a magnificently restored old train station complex at Regina and Erb Streets in Uptown Waterloo, the menswear retailer has successfully engineered a quality sense of timelessness that compliments the fashion history of the business. All roads lead with ease to a place of convenience, from parking your vehicle, to viewing modern menswear collections in two unhurried settings.
This unique site, home to the store’s collections since 1997, provides an interesting blend of history and progression that is perfect for the classic Paul Puncher customer. The high ceilings, natural light and warm wood tones of the station, a tastefully contemporary Casual Fashion area, and a tailor shop on-site creates an undeniably captivating combination of rich heritage and world class designer menswear.
Our stores are ‘of fashion’ rather than being caught ‘in fashion’ of the moment, is how Scott Puncher, son and partner of founder Paul Puncher, defines the integral focus of their business.
As for our design principle, it is a symmetry of line, shape, form and colour, adds Paul Puncher.
The adjacent space, nestled as a continuation to the train station, offers a more relaxed approach to menswear. Inside this modern setting, contemporary collections of sports and casualwear project the same quality and image that has become synonymous with the Puncher name.
At Puncher Casual, flexibility and comfort are the priority with menswear that adapts to every complex blend of function and style. Again, three foremost European collections dominate: Paul & Shark Yachting, Zegna Sport and Hugo Boss.
The Paul Puncher customer recognizes that his wardrobe is an investment in himself, helping him present a progressive image that sets him comfortably apart. He acknowledges that clothes do not make the man, yet realizes that they certainly define him. The adventurer is one who discovers his niche with Paul Puncher – one who aggressively pursues his goals, appreciates innovation, looks forward to challenges and simply enjoys life.
We resist the fickle fashion of the moment, often a willful exaggeration that is fast, overstated and with a dependence on obsolescence, says Paul Puncher.
Our clothes are subtle, well-proportioned and age gracefully, with understated elegance and sophistication. I believe that it is our consistency of style that answers our customers’ constant appeal for a harmony of fashion and function.
Our determination is to move our customers not just up or ahead, but forward, adds Scott Puncher.
Some customers are very comfortable coordinating their own wardrobe with minimal assistance – others rely on the expertise of the knowledgeable store personnel, often with valuable input from family or friends. The one constant is a commitment to assist each customer to find his niche.
Look to Puncher Casual for a more relaxed appearance that embraces and absorbs modernity in masculine elegance at its most casual and fluid. Look to both stores, Paul Puncher and Puncher Casual, for menswear devoted to the youthful, in attitude and lifestyle, regardless of age.
Simply stated, the Paul Puncher label embodies a commitment to the shapes, new ideas, and new nuances. Within that bold premise lies the Paul Puncher pursuit of excellence.
