Recapturing the Past

Vintage classics needn’t remain an archival memory. J. Press Tailored to Individual Order allows them home to roost. Some of my suggestions are culled from decades of personal experience rekindling memory of superior resources abroad that still offer J. Press special materials in our own confined weaves and colorings to satisfy connoisseurs of taste and quality.

TRADITIONAL INFORMAL WORSTED SUITS: Finely napped kind handling Glen Plaid Urquhart Worsted Suits remain a keen personal statement for informal occasions.

WHIPCORD/CAVALRY TWILLS: These impressive old-time breech cloths continue their virile good looks and serviceable character, an undiminished choice for all general wear according mix-and-mix blazer/odd trouser combos in their distinctive tan twist that may be personalized with choice of either lap seam, center hook or side vented models.

SCOTTISH HOPSACK SUITS: Over the years Real Shetland Hopsack Suits at home in town or country are always available with selections of old time Moorish shades favored by the likes of George Bernard Shaw in Olive County Lovat, Black/Mustard, Deep-tone Striped Lovats, also serving prime choice for sport coat, sport vest or odd trouser.

CAMEL HAIR POLO COAT: Universally admired and culled from the J. Press archives, our easy fitting classic double-breasted model with two-piece half belt, framed pockets and full swelled edges and seams. Offered in luxurious Natural Camel Hair or Wool solids and fancies.

PEAK LAPEL TUXEDO: Choices available with satin faced or dull ribbed grosgrain lapels, tailored to order in choices of Jet Black, Midnight Blue, or perhaps Black Watch Tartan Fine Dress Worsted worn comfortably the year ‘round. Cut conservatively and detailed with flap pockets piped so that the flaps may be concealed, center hook vent or side vented accompanied by plain front trousers with full braid.

FALL & WINTER TROUSERS: Wide ranges of Tartan, English All Wool Saxony Hunting Checks, and West of England Full Weight All Wool Flannels in grays, browns, tan, window panes and winter whites.

Bring ’em back alive.
