but I now use a 75 degree bench
Me too. I find this safer / more comfortable than a straight 90 degree bench.

Press-Ups only for Chest vs Bench

IMO Free weights with progressive loading have to be the best for building big chest mass and strength long term. But can one build a decent looking -not huge- but defined/athletic and hard chest from press-ups alone? (including variations, incline etc, eventually handstand if you're strong enough) ...

You could try:

1) A good quality 100% pure whey isolate (not concentrate).

2) The new brown rice isolate by true protein. Not as easy to down as whey but acceptable with a banana and some berries etc.
