J. Press, A Frat House Where Everyone’s Dad Is Rich

I recently discovered this article about J. Press buried in the files on my computer. Richard Press sent it to me so long ago he doesn’t even remember it. He says he believes it’s from 1987 and a magazine called Success. Consider it successfully resurrected. — CC

    Nice picture of Mr. Press. This would have been at the much-missed store on West 44th next to Brooks. Glad that the company is still offering great traditional clothing on 44th Street 32 years after this article was published. Really amazing to me that sales in the Japanese stores were so much larger than U.S. sales. I wonder if that is still the case.

  2. Nice read. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. My new favorite picture of Richard.

    Wonderful article Christian on this charismatic brand and Richard Press!!
    Love the last sentence.
    I will drop into the new JPress store when I will be in NYC in May! For sure

  9. I just wore my irreplaceable navy blue thick flannel J. Press suit I bought from Jerry Haber in 1995(?) to court yesterday. It still looks as good as it did 24 years ago.

    Go in blind drunk and STILL come out looking respectable. The very essence of it all. Thank the Lord for eBay, which is where everything J. Press I own comes from.

  11. When you sell timeless American traditional clothing, there is no need to worry about obsolescence. Stay true to the style.
