The 25 Best New England Brands of All Time

From: New Haven, Conn.
Founded:
1902

J.Press
was founded in 1902 in New Haven, Conn. by a Latvian immigrant named Jacobi Press. Since then, not much has changed with the brand, and that's a good thing. J.Press has come to epitomize the style found on Ivy League campuses and through out New England: navy blazers, flat-front trousers, oxford cloth shirts, Shaggy Dog sweaters, and club ties. Most importantly, the brand is known for its takes on tweeds—it often weaves the most eccentric patterns. Recently, J.Press has launched a line, York Street, which caters to #menswear fans and is designed by Ovadia & Sons, but the brand is forever a source for folks young and old who like to dress in a traditional manner.
