    I am not an unbiased observer, since Mr. Press is a friend. But he has led and continues to lead such an interesting life — one of particular relevance for the clothing aficionado — that I must recommend this interview. And when he publishes his memoirs, I have no doubt it will make for the most fascinating reading.

    A gentleman and treasure.

    A real class act. His memoir should be titled: “The J. Press Story-My LIfe Behind the Seams”-a riff on “Threads: My Life Behind the Seams in the High-Stakes World of Fashion,” the Joseph Abboud autobiography.

  4. So glad to read about his love of Gucci style loafers.

  5. great read, thanks

  6. Mr. Press,

    May you have many more years of wonderful memories to add to all you have already accumulated! Yes, write the book! I want more Sinatra type stories!

    Continued success,

    M Arthur

    Mr. Press’s clearly non-Ivy eyeglass frames are proof of the fact that he has a personal style that goes beyond the strict limits that some orthodox Ivy adherents try to impose on others. Hats off to his individuality!

    Thank you for citing the interview. It is uplifting to read about a true gentleman who has led, and continues to lead, a rich, varied and admirable life.
