If you’ve enjoyed the history of J. Press and insight on the Ivy League Look from our interview with Richard Press this week, rest assured there’ll be more to come. Richard has offered to share more anecdotes and observations in occasional guest posts for Ivy Style. Stay tuned.
He is pictured at a party at J. Press’ New York store last night, where despite retiring from menswear 15 years ago, he was the cynosure of the room for veteran salesmen, manufacturers, reporters and representatives from Onward Kashiyama.
He was especially proud to have “J. Squeezed” himself into some 20-year-old J. Press grey flannels he hadn’t worn in ages.
Welcome back to the front, Richard. — CC
