    I received a message last week asking if I would be interested in a purchase, a very special one. A J Press Chesterfield was sitting in the back of a closet and needed a home. The price: not cheap. But I knew I would never have a chance to buy another one, because there likely isn't another one.

    Yes, you can buy a J Press Chesterfield this season, but this J Press Chesterfield is from 1930, and is in perfect, immaculate condition. The fit is perfect.

    I give you my "new" coat, the McCune J Press Chesterfield. It turned 80 years old this past Monday, the day it was shipped to me.

    Thank you gentlemen. I think it may be the beau ideal of a Chesterfield. The condition is amazing. It must have hardly ever been worn, but stored extremely well.
