Wandering up Madison Avenue last week I popped into J.Press to see what was new and chat with the salesmen. The fall merchandise was out on display and I perused the schoolboy scarves and the knit wool-hats in their full Ivy colored goodness. I really love the cold weather accoutrement that Press sells. I also like the oxford shirts and sack suits. Jay Walter (who we’ve seen on this page before) took some time to show me his nice new autumn suit program.
Mr. Walter, who runs MTM for J.Press, has a group of handmade (in New York) English wool 3/2 sack suits for fall that were tough to resist. I always enjoy talking clothing with Jay and am constantly impressed by his good taste and fine spirits. Press is a curmudgeony place (less so since it moved from 44th Street), but still it is always somewhere I keep coming back to. If only for a scarf or a chat with Jay Walter.
