Brooks knows the way to my heart.
I picked up one of these jackets late last summer, and it looks like they’re going on sale now for $99 a pop, just in time for summer. Pair one of these with some matching Milano chinos (in British tan, I think), and you’ve got yourself a perfect summer wedding outfit.
Sizing is SML, though, so go and try on the jacket in person if you can.
You can definitely tell from the new Brooks imagery that they’re focusing on capturing a younger clientele. Hopefully this doesn’t come at the cost of lower quality / less emphasis on the traditional (older?) offerings that established its reputation.
Please, no Brooks Brothers Moon Boots. I beg you!
“Etiquette guru K. Cooper Ray has found a huge following with Social Primer, his modern day male Emily Post-style blog, and his bow tie collections for Brooks Brothers sell out across the country. We caught up with the well-mannered man about town to talk about Billy Reid, bow ties and his newly adopted hometown in South Carolina.”

Brooks Brothers - 1926 Yearbook Advertisement
In the back of the 1926 yearbook for my alma mater that I eBayed last week, I found this nice little advertisement on the first page of the “Ads” section. Funny thing is that 83 years later, the first new suit that I bought after graduation was an 1818 Fitzgerald pinstripe from none other than the Brooks at 346 Madison!
Of note, it seems like perhaps the only four retail stores in existence at the time were in New York, Boston, Palm Beach, and Newport? Can anybody confirm? Appropriate cities, though, I’d say.
