"The Ultimate Ivy League Blazer"
a timeless rare vintage find in sterling condition
from Harvard and Yale's treasured clothier...

J. PRESS
NEW HAVEN*CAMBRIDGE*NEW YORK

who feel Brooks Brother is too trendy/an abomination."

Coat Length: 33" base of collar to hem
Sleeves:  26" w/1" let-down available

Check them against your favorite coat. We can never guarantee fit. 

______________________________________________

When you wear J. Press...
... you're sharing in the highest levels of conservative tailored apparel
rarely found in America today.
Since its founding in 1902, J. Press' clothing has remained much the same.
This timeless navy blazer is true to the legendary Ivy League heritage
rooted in the clothiers first New Haven, Connecticut, store.

At Last... The "Old Money Look"...
J. Press Prestige... for the Taller Gent!
As vintage aficionados for over 35 years, we're well-aware of the rarity
of high-quality timeless tailored apparel fit for "gentleman of greater height."
While this brilliant blazer is not tagged for size... the chest measurement,
generous torso length of 33" (vs. about 30" for a regular coat)
and ample sleeve length of 26" (vs. a typical 24") plus 1" of available let-down...
all point to an impossible-to-find SIZE 42 EXTRA-LONG
Compare measurements your favorite coat.  We can not be responsible for it. This a final sale.


If you eschew popular culture and fashion trends...
.... you'll appreciate this traditional "three-button rollover" blazer in four-season worsted wool.
The essence of "Old Guard" attire... this classic sack style garment with natural shoulders
carries patch/flap waist pockets, a slash breast pocket, a center vent and full satin lining.
Ultra-conservatives wouldn't have their blazers any other way.

"Preppy: The New Black"
Then again, what would you expect from The Harvard Crimson student newspaper...
 founded in 1873 and quick to boast of the J. Press Cambridge store a stone's throw from campus
 and --among his more notable achievements-- legendary Ivy-Leaguer, JFK, as a former editor.

New Replacement Cost: $555.00
World-class apparel steeped in tradition isn't for the light-hearted, for sure.
But this rare estate find is within your reach for a fraction the $555.00 price tag
on the similar model seen above showcased in the J. Press store.


Superb Condition
No labels attest to the age of this stellar survivor.
But it's free from wear... no problems... no issues... no mothing or rips or tears.
Simply dry-clean for freshness and hygiene... and in need of a fresh low-moisture press too.
