Heritage label J. Press has celebrated its 120th anniversary with the launch of a new flagship store in New Haven, Connecticut. The new location marks the label’s storied history of producing Ivy League pieces, and adjoins the brand’s previous store, creating a link back to its history.
References to this heritage can be seen throughout the design of the store, with a blue awning outside and vintage furniture from the original store alongside Ivy-themed bric-a-brac internally. This setting will play host to J Press’ signature items, including India Madras, Oxford button down shirts and Shaggy Dog Shetland sweaters along with sportswear-influenced pieces and a space for tailoring and made-to-measure on the second floor.
Jun Murakami, the CEO and President of J. Press, said:
“Today is an important day for J. Press with our return to a permanent home right around the corner from where it all started. We are thrilled to continue to offer classic Ivy-inspired American clothing to the world from our traditional home of New Haven.”
The J. Press flagship in New Haven is open now.
