Brooks is going through some branding/identity crisis. That being said, What's in a name?

GEE! Q said...

Total waste of time

Hahaha... WOW! REALLY? Those are so Trad... Maybe Brooks is trying to be very groundbreaking and super forward. Those will look ridiculous with the suit and overcoat I just bought for fall from them!

The Brethren. R.I.P. They've jumped the shark.

It's those lousy Italians that took the place over, I tell ya!

I knew (sadly) that an old institution was killing itself lately, but this is like slitting their wrists.

My little sister had those 3 winters ago. After one go-round they ended up in the back of the closet where they remain to this day. There's a story in here somewhere for Brooks Brothers...I'm in shock

they should be ashamed and I think their founder is turning in his grave!

Funny you posted this. I was browsing over there the other day and came across this. It completely confused me. They have this desire to collaborate with tech clothing companies and yet they're also custom designing suits for Mad Men. As a consumer, I'm utterly confused by their brand right now.

Someone at Brooks Brothers must be fetishizing over the 1997 movie - "The Ice Storm". Moon boots, retro preppy CT style and swingers galore.
