  1. I cannot speak unbehalf of jpress, but I recently did a made to measure at brooks brothers. The suit and the experience were fantastic. I selected a blue windowpane with peaked lapels. It only cost $1,295 and took three weeks for the garment to arrive. From now on that us the only way I am going to buy a suit. Highly recommend getting mtm.

  2. What a wonderful sale! Would love J. Press to branch into MTM womenswear… just saying!

    Does anybody do MTM or full custom womenswear?

    • Alan Flusser does both full custom and MTM womenswear. Now owned by Jonathan Sigmon after Alan’s retirement. Couldn’t be happier with my commissions from them, and FWIW, think a higher quality make than J.Press, and miles ahead of Brooks (MTM only, as neither do full bespoke).


    • Yes. Alan Flusser does both. Offering is called “Flusser Femme”. On the website.

    The made-to-measure sale looks wonderful. I wish my closet could hold one more J. Press suit, but it would be tight.

    Where is Sarah’s post from Wednesday? It seems to have vanished. Is there a new Ivy Style website and, if so, how do we get there?

    • Fully agree with this question! I just went to read again and comment how much I want to see more of that kind of post! And maybe a something on women’s southern collegiate style, simply because it would fit my climate better and it’s so freaking’ hard to find. Even “The Southern Belle Primer,” the southern version of “The Preppy Handbook” doesn’t really go into what to wear, exactly.

      @ C’ville,
      In that post, Sarah mentioned “kitten heels”, and Audrey Hepburn. I, of course, had never heard of kitten heels. So, a quick image search and I find photos of AH as well as Lady Di in kitten heels. Very attractive.

  5. Why no coupons in the SS2023 catalog?

    • No coupons – but if you follow the QR code on the back of the catalog, you’ll get a discount code for 15% off.

  6. For the price MTM’s are the way to go. The fit is so much better and for those of us who our not off the rack size for the price it is worth it.
    Sarah you should talk to Richard Press and see if they would do it for women. I know the Chipp used to make suits and tweed sport coats for my mother.

    • Hardbopper | March 31, 2023 at 2:26 pm |

      I definitely agree re mtm. It’s the travel and lodging expenses that make the price out of the question. For this reason alone, Ivy is and will remain available exclusively to New Englanders.

      • While not ” strictly Ivy” – Alan Flusser, Redmayne, Steed and others travel throughout the country, likely to a city near you. All offer MTM in addition to full bespoke, and may be worth a look. The latter two will deviate from the traditional british style for ivy garments if asked nicely…

        • From this, road shows, would it be reasonable to deduce that business is better in the US, i.e., New York and Boston, than in Great Britain? Or, perhaps GB just has more tailors available to travel?

          • Uhhh, no? Can fairly easily deduce that there is a larger addressable market in the US than in GB, though. Tailors have been traveling to the US from Great Britain for GENERATIONS.

        • Joe Rooney | April 2, 2023 at 4:03 pm |

          Redmayne also offers something called their “suit copying service.” The name is a little misleading as they don’t strictly copy the suit you provide. They use it to get your measurements and then make your garments in their house style. Pretty reasonable pricing as well.

    Whither has Ivy Style moved?

  8. I’m saving up for some MTM stuff from Portland’s John Helmer, only because I’m not on the east coast. I have a gray herringbone suit from J. Press that I love, though my measurements don’t fit perfectly into their usual “drop six” sizing and the pants are a little slim even with alterations. It’s undeniable that having something made that way gets you something second only to bespoke in terms of fit.
    I noticed Sarah’s article disappeared. Must have occurred when the site was moved? Anyway, it’s also available on her site, http://www.fewerandbetter.com.

  9. Nope! had it wrong, sorry. Sarah’s blog is at http://www.fewerandbetterblog.com.

    Re: “finally moved the site” ?

    Seems to be in the same place.

  11. Is every old article still on the site?
