J. Peterman J. Peterman, purveyor of floridly written mail-order items who waxed poetic about clothing and exotic destinations. He introduced himself to Elaine by noting her coat's "deep by-swing vents," perfect for jumping onto a gondola. The dialogue sounded like it was written by Rudyard Kipling himself, and for four seasons it was delivered expertly by John O'Hurley's baritone voice.
J. Peterman hired Elaine to work on his Catalog. His favorite saying is: "It’ll Always Be Burma to Me".
However, J. (John) Peterman and the J. Peterman catalog are real—although the real-life J. Peterman Company is based not in New York City, but in Lexington, Kentucky. J. Peterman talks like the character in the show and, as portrayed on the show, the catalog (Called the "Owner's Manual") is spiced with tangential prose in the descriptions of the products—hard-to-find clothing and accessories.

The J. Peterman of Seinfeld fame was portrayed by John O'Hurley. After a somewhat serendipitous series of events—a boom, a bust, a buy-out, a buy-back and, finally, a meeting between Peterman and O'Hurley which the latter likened to "Bruno Magli meeting O.J. Simpson"—the fictional J. Peterman now sits on the real J. Peterman board of directors.
