Video Hightlights: Richard Press Talk At J. Press

Sorry to disappoint you all, but after much delay, the video of Richard Press’ chat at J. Press’ New York store last month is finally ready and…. — brace yourself — it’s been professionally and stylishly edited down to 90 seconds, making it quite literally a case of shoulda been there.

  1. Great Mr Press!

  2. As Mr. Press says, if you buy good stuff in classic styles you can wear it for your entire life but he didn’t mention (maybe it was edited out) the only way you can do this is to remain the same size your entire adult life.

    What Mr. Press had to say was certainly worth the wait, but I must admit that I was disappointed that it was only 90 seconds long.

    A tantalizingly brief glimpse of the ultimate host/raconteur that is Richard Press.

    Thank you, Mr. Press. Delightful. Wish it could have been longer or, even better, that I had been able to attend. It is certainly true that classic clothing can be worn for decades, and passed on to the next generation. I have some items in my wardrobe that predate my adult years, and I have been happy to pass along a few items to younger men as I whittle down my closet from time to time. Thank you J. Press for a wonderful legacy that continues so stylishly today. Best wishes for another 116 years.

    Is the distinguished gentleman with the silver-handled walking stick seated in the front row a member of the Press family? 1:05-1:07

    Nope, my best friend since we roomed together 1956 at Loomis. Distinguished indeed, retired Goldman Sachs Senior Partner and prominent NYC philanthropist.

  8. Every “visit” to this site is a rare treat.

  9. Policing the quality of the craft. Golden Rule #2. So important.

    A few years ago there was a great mix of Southwick and Greenfield. What happened to Cohen? Long gone? What’s the feedback about the Empire goods?

  10. According to Mike from Epaulet, Hertling is closing. This is very sad news. Hopefully it is a misunderstanding.

  11. I was happy to stop by at the beginning of the event, but sad that I had to miss the actual talk. i was great seeing Mr. Press and the J.Press sales staff who are all top-notch gents.

    @Old School,
    The greatest treats of all are posts about men who know what they’ve talking about, like Richard Press, Bruce Boyer, and Charlie Davidson, in particular.

    Midnight misspelling: “they’ve” for “they’re”. Sorry.
