If anyone's gotten a madras jacket -- I'd appreciate hearing about the quality and shoulders. Also if any of you get the oxford BD collared shirt with pocket, how's the quality? Thanks lads. H.

What width are their ties? Horace, is 3" considered trad? That was certainly the fashion in the 1940-50s. I'm so hip that I'm trad.

JPress clothes are for people who have given up hope that another live human being is ever going to see them naked again in a sexual situation. Does anyone on the planet make clothes more sexless and/or less erotic than JPress?

Afganistan burkas are less sexy.

I think auto90403 accurately sums up the JPress look and the whole trad way of dressing in general. There is nothing worse. The trad look is what gives American clothing its bad reputation around the world

I don't know what tie widths are considered trad. But I know that you're Hip. Can't stop the hipness; can't stop the Trad. More to the point: probably what's been in good Ivy League haberdashers all along -- 3" to 3.5", though I've got one just slightly less wide from Press years ago.

Oh please. J Press is such a minority of the "American" look in general. (Paul Stuart styling for instance, is another). I think we've got a lot more areas, as a nation, where we bring to bare (as it were) a bad reputation.

Ha. Funny (seriously). And there may be some element of truth to this. But you can't stop the Trad. Press's D.C. store outfits many deviant politicians. And on this first page of postings alone, we've got messages on Paul Stuart, H. Freeman (is there a more Trad legacy), Brooks, Drakes, et al. You can't stop the Trad. As for sexless and unerotic (and hold on to your Manolo's auto90403), that's right: Trad is sexless and unerotic. Why should a man's clothing be otherwise? Did I mention that you can't stop the Trad? Dizzy from my the sound of my own voice and repitition, H.
