Suit Up at J. Press in Washington, DC
January 6, 2014
WASHINGTON, DC, US – Since its launch at Yale University in 1902, this menswear line has been every bit as preppy and collegiate as New England itself. While it may have started in Connecticut, the J. Press boutique has become a staple in Washington, DC’s menswear scene.
US Presidents, statesmen, professionals, and red-carpet celebrities alike have worn Jacobi Press’s timeless creations. But the boutique and its frequent sales have made the classic cuts and styles available to the everyman. For rising DC politicos and corporate types, the shop’s variations of the “Capitol Hill uniform” are the main draw. The executive and signature suits, along with the colorful ties and shiny clips, combine to make ideal “Pressidential” getups. For those more formal evenings, there’s the collection of tuxedoes, bowties, cummerbunds, and patterned pocket squares to transform the lads in our lives into dashing gentlemen ready for swank soirees.
The shop’s “Classic American” style is gorgeous in its simplicity. The ageless and elegant suits, made with tweed, wool, or flannel, are expertly chosen and tailored in-store. The Made-to-Measure service personalizes suits, jackets, and trousers to fit each customer’s lifestyle. Recently, J. Press has partnered with brands like Eastland and Barbour to include shoe and outerwear lines, expanding the shop’s offerings to create full head-to-toe ensembles.
Whether it’s a complete formal tuxedo, or any of the Yale letter sweaters or blazers that the boutique carries at each location, we’re digging the New Haven styles. Plus, our dudes leave looking pretty “well-suited.”
