Walking up Madison Avenue yesterday evening, my wife and I passed J. Press, the bastion of traditional men’s clothing. The store was closed, which removed any temptation I might have had to go in and buy something. But we spent a few minutes looking at some of their spring offerings in the window displays. They’re making a big push for the “unconstructed” cotton jackets this season.
I do plan to make a return trip soon to pick up a grosgrain ribbon belt with a D-ring buckle (already have one of theirs in wine/navy). I’d also like to get a bow tie to go with a linen jacket I found on a recent thrift expedition. Note the khakis below with the standard 1 3/4″ cuffs.
