On occasion, east coast fashion exudes a touch of snootiness, though it tends to be delivered in a very prim manner that is often too hard to pass up. While preppiness has never necessarily grown out of style, it is surely back now more than ever. Thanks to Todd Snyder’s collaboration with the New Haven-bred J. Press, fuzzy cardigans and tweed trousers are most definitely fashion statements once again.
Offering a wide variety of pieces that shine a light on Ivy League style, Todd Snyder made sure that a handful of standout garments boast J. Press’ signature Shaggy Dog title, stemming from the brand’s wool sweater that was a personal favorite of sartorial icons of yesteryear like Cary Grant and John F. Kennedy. Starting this collection off is the Shaggy Dog Beanie, which is made entirely of Shetland wool and is available in a heptad of eye-popping colors. Other pieces that garner this trademark treatment are the capsule’s cardigan, turtleneck, and crewneck, all of which seamlessly complement the Scottish wool-crafted sweater vest, tweed trousers, and lush Spectator Coat that also appear in this collection. Like the beanie, each of these pieces is available in a wide array of colors to appease any look. Having hailed from Yale’s campus well over a century ago, J. Press’ take on traditional fashion is surely in a (Ivy) league of its own.
With a wide variety of eccentric pieces to choose from, select pieces from the Todd Snyder x J. Press Collection are available now starting from $98, with a handful of other selections available for pre-order.
