Item Description

J. Pierrepont Finch
HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING
2011

 

Everyone can take a few lessons on how to succeed from this young up-and-comer. From window washer to chairman of the board, J. Pierrepont Finch makes a quick accent, rising to the top of the World Wide Wicket Company. The Finch bear wears a replica of Daniel Radcliffe's complete opening outfit from the 2011 revival of How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. Under his removable green poplin coveralls is a woven cotton three-piece suit with dark grey trousers and vest. He is ready for anything that comes his way in his sharp white linen shirt, all topped with a gray and white plaid jacket. Finch also wears black ankle boots made of real leather and adorned with a dark brown wig styled ideally for the 1960s executive. This bear also comes with unique accessories. Daniel Radcliffe, who originated the role in the 2011 revival, provided his trademark blue bow tie. The two subsequent leading men taking on the role – Darren Criss and Nick Jonas – have added their own smartly colored bow ties, too. So this Finch bear comes with bowties in all three colors, each attachable with magnets. No matter which bow tie you choose, this heartthrob will be dressed for success!
