A fine retailer of traditional clothing for every occasion. Started in New York, the Brooks brothers sold suits of unrivaled calibre. As the clothing gained popularity, the chain grew and began offering a wider array of clothes. In the latter half of the Twentieth Century, Ralph Lauren bought out Brooks Brothers Polo line and established himself as another traditional clothing retailer. Ralph Lauren Polo still retains many of its roots to Brooks Brothers in its more traditional clothing but has also veered into the the more contemporary genre. Brooks Brothers, meanwhile, has become one of the great bastions of traditional clothing, for men and women of fine taste who above all value class over whim. A tradition that is passed down through families that identifies those with traditional roots.
I bought a fine seersucker suit at Brooks Brothers because I liked the suits my father bought from there during my youth.
