It may be time to survey your wardrobe and make room for new additions! Todd Snyder serves up another collection of irresistible classics for fall. This time around, the designer partners with J. Press.
Snyder offers J. Press a modern platform to appreciate its time-tested designs. Founded in 1902 by Jacobi Press, J. Press came to fruition on Yale University’s Connecticut campus. Since its founding, J. Press has served as a standard-bearer for Ivy League fashion.
The Sack Suit, the Boxy Chino, and the Shaggy Dog sweater, a Shetland design beloved by President John F. Kennedy and actor Cary Grant, were all pioneered by the company. To give these college essentials a contemporary spin, J. Press requested Todd Snyder partner with them.
“J. Press has always been a little under the radar, which makes them cool,” says Snyder. “So we took some of their iconic pieces and gave them a little attitude.” The designer adds, “And we took some of our styles like our chore coat and J. Press-ified them in Harris Tweed.”
