While J. Press was busy reopening a proper flagship store in New York, something else was happening in Los Angeles. Jeffery Plankster, a commercial director and host of the jazz radio show that featured me last year, has opened a retail store in LA’s historically most preppy enclave of Pasadena. The store is called The Bloke and takes its inspiration from ’60s Brit culture, as well as what you might call the jazz-Ivy crossover. These photos from the opening party give you a glimpse of a few of the hip young neo-traditionalists in LA. — CC
