York Street: prep duds from J. Press and the Ovadia brothers

  • 19 February 2013

With each passing day, the sun lingers longer.

And among the signature styles of American men — the workman, the businessman, the woodsman, etc. — nothing says “spring is coming” like the prep.

You know: The WASP. The letterman. The dude in the I-fly-a-seaplane pants.

And so we’re happy to introduce J. Press York Street, a handsomely collegiate house of men’s style on Bleecker from legendary prep clothiers J. Press and the natty brothers behind Ovadia and Sons — aka GQ's 2012 Best New Menswear Designers in America.

An homage to J. Press’s original 1902 New Haven shop, York Street is like a stroll across Yale’s campus circa 1960 – right down to the vintage fencing gear and giant brass bulldog. 

So ask the friendly gents to pour you a drink as you get your Ivy League style on with these must-have warm weather essentials:

The Shirt
York Street

York’s got stylish polos from floral to two-tone, but first grab their terry cloth tennis polo (above right) – a versatile solid with subtle texture for personality.

The Pants

Every man needs a pair of “GTH” (go-to-hell) pants, and York’s madras chinos (above right) are exactly that. Think Jack Nicklaus in his prime.

The Jacket

Check out the Chatham Sport Coat (above middle) – crafted from an indigo chambray that’s just off-center enough to get you noticed.

The Shoes

York’s got three options, but the two-tone penny (above right) takes the cake.

There are also dapper accessories, from seersucker bowties to macramé ring belts to top everything off.

Congrats, your wardrobe just made the honor roll.

 

No time to make it to the Bleecker shop? Worry not – York Street’s available online as well.
