About the Author

Richard Press, the grandson of J. Press founder Jacobi Press, worked at the family business for thirty-two years, eventually rising to become the company’s president. He later spent four years as President and CEO of F.R. Tripler & Co. A graduate of Dartmouth College and The American Academy of Dramatic Arts with an MA from The New York Institute of Technology, Press has also worked as an off-Broadway actor and co-produced two plays on Broadway. A featured columnist for the popular web site Ivy Style and a guest lecturer at Yale and the Fashion Institute of Techology, Press was recently cited by Tablet Magazine as “the preeminent historian of classic Ivy.” He also served as a consultant to the Museum of The Fashion Institute of Technology, co-curating the acclaimed Ivy Style Exhibit, which drew over 50,000 visitors in four months. Mr. Press lives with his wife Vida in New York City.
