My favorite maker! Only dress shoes I own as a mater of fact.

Guess this outfit from church on Sunday is worth sharing:

Intersting article on J. Press in Ivy Style today. http://www.ivy-style.com/real-people-j-press-introduces-live-models.html

 

Interesting looks. Not sure I like the undarted suits, though. Very Trad but even Brooks basically gave up on the sack suit. (Funny to note they poached the model who works with Brooks Brothers and Attolini). There is a J Press store in DC that I've walked by but never actually visited.

 

 

Anyone ever been in one of their stores?

Is that actually the Attolini guy? I thought he looked similar but didn't occur to me it was actually the same person.

And yes - J. Press stores are great and I used to go to the one on Madison Ave. a lot. They don't have very many of them though - just Cambridge, NYC (although the main one closed and I think moved down to the West Village?), DC, New Haven, and that might actually be it. Definitely worth a visit.

Amusingly his Instagram feed came up yesterday when I was searching for Attolini. His name is TR Pescod apparently.

Nice colors. Very nice textures. Absolutely no shape in the jacket, but I am assuming that is your goal with "southern trad".

Yup, it's hard work to find something this wonderfully unstructured. 3/2 sack with natural shoulders, self-faced and with no lining, not even in the sleeves, beyond a pair of 3" triangles in the shoulder.

 

And here's some more raw silk with a pair of blue suede shoes:

I'm sure a jacket of that type would be difficult to find. By your description I can only think of Boglioli, but that is of course far too "Sartoria" to apply here. Good job!

I disagree about the no shape comment.  I don't think it is overly fitted, but there is definitely a curve from the top of the shoulders to the waist and the back out at the hips.  I like the shape of the shape of the jacket.

This is an old Haspel, though I've had similar luck with Southwick, Brooks Brothers and J.Press.

Thanks! Just goes to show that a sack cut doesn't have to mean it literally fits like a sack.

This is certainly true, although a straight hanging, loose, garment was often favored by Tradists.

It's not a very flattering cut, though. Kind of a uniform as most guys look the same wearing it. Seems to have been (thankfully) supplanted by the Italian and British cuts.

I gotta disagree with you there. I think a straight hanging jacket can look relaxed and nonchalant, just like the natural shoulder that often goes along with it. This doesn't mean that I dislike jackets with shape, quite the contrary, but I can appreciate the old school "I don't give a fuck" look of a straight hanging jacket.
