Brooks Brothers Quilted Down Blazer

Kind of early for this, but this is the new BB quilted blazer.  They added a chest pocket and gold buttons which I like, but it’s still too short in the body in my opinion.  

Short in the body means it might just fit me off-the-rack.  Not really my style, though.


Brooks Brothers Oxford Popover

What’s poppin’.  

I would wear the everloving hell out of this.  I’m not much of a popover guy, but damn.

Brooks Brothers’ Five Day Sale


Brooks Brothers’ “five day sale” starts today, where each day will have a different category of items on sale for twenty-four hours only. Today is sweaters; tomorrow is outerwear and accessories; Wednesday is women’s clothing; Thursday is men’s tailored clothing; and Friday is shirts and ties. Excitingly, the discount will be 40% off for the first three days, before dropping to 30% for the last two. 

For today’s sale, I bought one of their Shetland sweaters in Oatmeal Heather and plan to wear it with my waxed cotton Barbour, light blue OCBD, a pair of dark brown corduroys, and some shell cordovan boots, as you see below. I also picked up this suede jacket earlier this season, and promise you it looks better in real life than it does online. It’s conservative and simple in styling, but the subtle stand-up collar adds a little panache, I think. 

Unfortunately, this sale won’t include shoes, but it might be a good time to stock up on basics, such their oxford-cloth button down shirts and merino v-neck sweaters. They also have some interesting flannel trousers this season, but it’s been too long that I’ve tried them on for me to recommend a particular model. I know the Milano is their appeal to younger customers who like slim clothing, but I vaguely remember them not being high enough waisted for me. Maybe I’ll stop in and check out their flat fronted Fitzgeralds. 

(Pictured below: light blue OCBD by Sid Mashburn; waxed cotton jacket by Barbour; Shetland sweater by Brooks Brothers; wide-waled brown corduroy trousers by Ralph Lauren; shell cordovan boots by Brooks Brothers

Definitely gonna be on the lookout for price cuts on their OCBDs.

Brooks Brothers F/W 2012 Outerwear

Polo Coat, Officer Coat, Reversible Coat, Hybrid Coat

My favs.  

That Hybrid Coat though.


Brooks Brothers Black Fleece F/W ‘12 now online

These are my favorites from the Lookbook, but I’d say overall these looks are fairly plain and boring.  There are some really awesome individual pieces I’ll post about later.  Thanks to the Silentist for the tip.  

I’m liking the red fairisle coat and the fairisle number as well as, obviously the plaids in the bottom row.


Brooks Brothers fall new arrivals…Camo..

Well, shit.  That was actually kind of unexpected.  Good looks, though.  I don’t know if I’d buy it, but it’s cool to see Brooks Brothers in the camo game.

Ivy Style: The Brooks Oxford, And What’s Wrong With 90% Of American Men →

Did you know that nine out of 10 men prefer chemically treated non-iron shirts that feel funny and look artificially perfect to pure unadulterated cotton? And I’m not talking about the general population, but specifically shoppers at that bastion of traditionalism, Brooks Brothers.

This weekend Ralph Gardner had an interesting write-up in the Wall Street Journal on the classic Brooks Brothers oxford, which he calls “the bedrock of our republic.”

After having been raised on polyester in what one assumes were the 1970s, Mr. Gardner discovered Brooks Brothers’ classic oxfords and has been a devoted fan ever since.
