I never liked J. Press - my impression has been that the clothes seem to be made for oversized, shapeless males. I also can't stand the obsession with single-vented jackets. But I agree that their contrasting-edge linen pocket squares are really nice.

Doesn't this depend on the cut or make of the coat, though? My suit size is 38 and I've had instances where, while trying on overcoats, a size 40 overcoat fit better, even when I'm going for a very fitted look.

My impression, here in the US at least, is that people tend to go for the single-vented, brass button variety. I have not personally scene a navy blazer with ticket pockets, but will definitely be on the lookout now. I have mine with dual vents and monogrammed silver buttons.
