J. Press has followed up on the announcement of its new Daniel Cremiuex collection with an official release about its Yale parntership that went out last night. The release makes the collaboration sound a bit more formal in nature, and indicates that it will include more than just athletic wear.
This morning J. Press released this snapshot of the lone blazer in the collection, which comes in the shade of Yale blue and includes Yale buttons as well as letter.
Says the “Press” release:
Yale University has entered into a license agreement with Onward Kashiyama, Co. for the production of a Yale University collection to be made available through its J. Press retail stores throughout Japan and the US. The collection, which will be marketed under the name YALE X J. PRESS, will feature an array of items ranging from business and sportswear to casual wear.
The collection was created in Japan, where Yale-themed dress shirts, sportcoats and “dress accessories” are available.
In the US, J. Press already offers Yale ties and scarves. The new items will be available at the end of March. — CC
