Blazers are one of J.PRESS's must-have items.
We use Saxony materials for the winter and tropical materials for the summer, and there are various details such as three button turns, 7mm stitching, red piping, and a center hook vent.
With that in mind, this time we focused on the metal buttons, which can be called the face of the blazer.
J.PRESS blazers use several types of buttons, but the standard blazer uses the original crest motif button.
< USA's J.PRESS classic blazer uses a different crest button. >
Metal buttons have a long history, dating back to the 16th century when European aristocrats used enamel to decorate their clothes, and the embossing technique was developed in Birmingham, England in the latter half of the 18th century. As a result, common designs began to be produced. Among them, the most common ones were so-called uniform buttons used by police, fire departments, railroads, and various clubs. And the other thing is a military button. This is called a military button, and it has become so famous that metal buttons are often referred to as military buttons.
The United States, where J.PRESS was founded, relied on imports from Britain until the War of Independence in the late 18th century, but after independence, they began manufacturing their own metal buttons in the United States. After independence, original methods began to spread, such as recommending metal buttons with an eagle, the national emblem of the United States.
Because of this history, metal buttons have also been used on J.PRESS blazers, and these buttons are manufactured by the Waterbury Button Company, which was founded in 1812 in Connecticut, USA. (J.PRESS was founded in New Haven in southern Connecticut.) Waterbury still continues to make buttons for various uniforms and military use in the United States.
In today's fashion blazers, cheap buttons are often used, and when you press the button with your fingernail, the inside is hollow, so most of them make a soft sound.
J.PRESS's standard blazers have been using Waterbury buttons since its founding.
Metal buttons are an essential item for customizing a blazer and can greatly change the look of the blazer.
At J.PRESS & SON'S AOYAMA, Kurono, the buyer, personally visited Tender Buttons (currently closed, unfortunately) on New York's Upper East Side and met with customers from all over the world. We have carefully selected metal buttons that go well with J.PRESS blazers.
Why not keep the standard crest button in a drawer and customize it with a cool button that is different from the standard?
We also have some interesting lining materials that we purchase from American children's room sheets and curtains with very catchy characters on them, which can be used as linings for blazers.
In addition, we have many patches available, so why not take this opportunity to create your one and only original blazer in the world with J.PRESS & SON'S AOYAMA?
