NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In celebration of its 110 year anniversary, Jos. A. Bank is launching a new clothing collection under the label "1905". The new label acknowledges the legacy of the company that was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in that year. The brand looked to Chief Creative Director, Joseph Abboud, to cultivate and design pieces that are inspired by the heritage of American style, blending vintage details with modern silhouettes, creating a new tradition for Jos. A. Bank.

Now in stores and available online, the 1905 collection features tailored clothing staples, along with modern sportswear and accessories that incorporate fabrics with rich textures and patterns, such as herringbones, tweeds and plaids. The 1905 collection appeals to the consumer who is interested in classic menswear for the modern gentleman. The collection will feature cornerstone pieces that should be part of every man's wardrobe such as herringbone sportcoats starting at $395, suits starting at $695, oxford button down shirts at $79.50 and argyle and cable knit sweaters at $129.50.

"Fads come and go, but what truly stands the test of time are classic looks that feel timeless in any era," said Abboud.  "The gentlemen we outfit don't chase fleeting trends. They believe in a tradition of excellence that has served them well for over 100 years."

"Quality fabrics, expert tailoring and an attention to detail will always be the hallmark of everything we make," said Doug Ewert, Chief Executive Officer. "We're pleased to introduce 1905 to our Jos. A. Bank customers and know they will look and feel great wearing the new collection."

Following the introduction of the Joseph Abboud brand, 1905 is the second new label to be added to Jos. A. Bank stores since the acquisition by The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. in 2014.
