THANK YOU NYB! I don't think everyone has to shop at J PRESS but they could give some respect to THOSE OF US who like the store and the many nice thinngs they have offered for so long.EVEN THE HIWOOL SHORTS which I love but I wont PRESS the issue because I know the opinions are strong over those shorts esp.when worn with a blazer and repp.

buying one of those frumpy j. press suits means you've stopped caring how you look.

This is just ignorant. That or you're a troll. At any rate, anyone who goes to the trouble of purchasing a nicely made suit and have it properly tailored obviously cares about his looks. In fact, one who buys a properly fitting sack -- which is obviously not in the current style -- is a more caring and individualistic dresser than most who buy the latest fashions.

I agree with you about strong opinions it's just that these comments about J Press bring back some bad memories. Everyone should be allowed to like what they want without being disrespected by family or strangers. I hope that clears this situation up. Thanks for listening Steve.

Please let me say one more thing J Press can be for the younger generation too. You don't need to buy the hiwool shorts or a tweed jacket but I think many young people who wear suits would like some of their ties like the one with paisley and skulls. Please see the website www.jpressonline and look at pg.5 of the ties. I would not buy these so don't say that I like everything in the store. I am glad if a young person gets introduced to J Press with a skull tie and maybe one day buys a sack suit there.

I wasn't talking about the caps.

Rather that goofy idea of wool shorts and a blazer an a repp tie to a croquet match.

Thought we'd hashed that one out...

Not a mod thing, am OMG thing...

I AM SORRY STEVE B. BUT I MUST DISAGREE. I wear this to all the lawn parties in the summer some people think I shouldn't wear shorts because of my waist size but I don't care. Maybe I feel more comfortable wearing shorts with a blazer and repp but I also know thin guys who are wearing the same thing. I think people should try this look before they say it's goofy. Even things that look goofy to me I give a second chance or bite my tongue why should I hurt other peoples feelings because they have different tastes?

Where? where are all these lawn parties with people in shorts, tie and blazer playing croquet? I am very curious. Next time you go to one, can you please take pictures? I would love to see this

Hello GDL I am outside of London in the UK because of my wife but I rather be back in the US. I will try to get photos from someone at the next party as I left my digi camera on the roof of my car you can guess what happened.That was a bad night actually a bad month but I won't go on about that.

if you want the same look but without that sack fit and droopy ass, shop at paul stuart in NYC. it's right around the corner.

If you can't appreciate old school stuff, maybe you're not as stylish as you thought?

I agree that not everything there is for me but the accessories are great for the price. The store was 25% off and I got a woven tie. I was also thinking about getting some of those multicolored ring belts for the summer.

When I hear someone praise J. Press, I wanna reach for my gun.

I'm WASP/Prep. I grew up wearing some the ugliest clothes on the planet -- khaki pants, seersucker suits, Topsiders with tape to keep the sole from flapping. The whole sorry Prep spectacle. What didn't come from Brooks came from J. Press.

I'm sorry, but no matter how fashionable Biff-wear and Muffy-wear sometimes are -- the look seems to be making (yet) another comeback -- the clothes are textbook frumpy. Biff-wear makes every man look like a prep school English teacher.

Which is not my look at all.

And I can't imagine many of us here finding it attractive. Sure, Brooks and JPress deliver a good bang for the buck, quality-wise. But once you've worn Italian, -- why waste time and money shopping at J. Press?

OK -- they have nice socks. But that's it.

I think everyone here needs to calm the fuck down. And stop trolling. Yes, I'm talking to the both of you.
