On this final day of the year, Ivy-Style.com is proud to present its first-ever Golden Weejun award to Richard Press for his outstanding contributions to the Ivy League Look.
In addition to being Ivy royalty by birth, Mr. Press has a record year in his service to the clothing genre. For starters, he moved to the Upper East Side from the wilds of Connecticut to be where the action is.
And the action was largely centered around the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Mr. Press earned the nickname King Richard for his singular contributions to the “Ivy Style” exhibit, which included not just donating items but styling the show, giving lectures, and leading tours.
On top of that, he continued to pen his “Golden Years” column for Ivy-Style.com, work on his memoirs, and even got his picture taken by Rose Callahan.
Congratulations, Richard, and we all look forward to seeing you in your gilded penny loafers. — CHRISTIAN CHENSVOLD
Isn’t that the same Weejun model worn on “Jersey Shore”?

Congratulations Mr. Press, well done!
Next year, Paul Winston.
Absolutely Brilliant, congrats Mr. Press! xx
For Sarah Mendelsohn: There was an old Danny Kaye movie from World War Two era when he played a jerk from Brooklyn named Mendelsohn. Going after sultry blonde Virginia Mayo, took her back to his walk-up, put a classical 78 record on the Victrola, turned the lights low, closed in on her whispering, “It’s never too late for Mendelsohn.”
The line was: “It’s Never Too Late To Mendelssohn”:
It’s never too late to Mendelssohn
Ding dong ding dong dell
Two hearts are a journey’s endelssohn
When the people hear that steeple bell
