The cost of getting one is likely to mount up, but I do so love these vintage-style ivy league anoraks by J. Press.
When I mention costs, I am, of course, talking about the cost of getting one in the UK. If you are in the US then you are in luck as you will not have to pay the hefty shipping plus additional taxes that will be dropped on you in the UK. Bitter? Just a bit.
Not that it is the fault of J. Press. It’s just the pain of getting clothing shipped in these days. I wish J. Press would open a UK-based online store. It would do so well.
Especially if they made these wonderful vintage anoraks available. Designs that scream the ivy league era and something that could be essential at this time of the year. Warm, with the threat of the odd shower. I might just have to bite the bullet and go for it.
Screaming the mid-20th century and collegiate ivy league wear, you can take your pick from various finishes, with some being more desirable than others.
For my money, the seersucker and madras patch designs literally jump off the page, but I can see the appeal of more subtle designs. The Blackwatch is growing on me the more I look at it.
The design is much the same across the board, finish aside. So a classic fit, drawstring waist, more drawstrings for the collar/hood, a horizontal Zipped chest pocket, and some button details to the cuff.
Sizes are small through to XXL, and the price is around £128. I could live with that – but as I said earlier, I do worry about the added postage and tax on top.
