Leave a comment to vote – two fan favorites face off in our next #BrooksBracket matchup: Fair Isle Sweater vs. "Fun Shirt." Which will advance to the last eight? Take your pick! #BrooksBrothers #Since1818

A very happy #NationalPuppyDay to all the proper pups – and owners – out there. πŸΆπŸ‘”

Vote for your fave below! #BrooksBracket is back with a new battle between icons: the polo coat vs. the women's pink shirt.
Called by menswear authority G. Bruce Boyer the "aristocrat of topcoats," the polo coat was introduced to America by Brooks in 1910. Before evolving into a double-breasted, notch-lapelled icon, the coat served as a robe-like cover-up for polo players between matches.
Our women's pink shirt has a similarly rich history. After pink became the color en vogue for men's clothing in the mid-20th century, Brooks' female fans started borrowing from the boys – as well as cornering the market on smaller sizes of the men's pink button-down shirt in our flagship store. This helped lead to the launch of our full-fledged women's department in 1976.
Which icon will join the navy blazer, the rep tie, the oxford and seersucker in the last eight? Take your pick! #BrooksBrothers #BrooksBrothersWomen #Since1818

Vote below – the second matchup from the "Classic Fabrics" section of the #BrooksBracket is a tough one: Madras vs. Seersucker.
Brooks Brothers has had a big hand in popularizing these two beloved fabrics. In 1902, we were the first to offer madras – this cool and colorful Indian fabric proved to be a hit with our American customers during the hot summer months.
A bit later, in the 1920s, we began selling seersucker suits; they quickly took off amongst Ivy Leaguers and high society gents of the day, becoming a fashion trend nearly overnight.

Voting begins now! Our third #BrooksBracket head-to-head should be another barnburner: Cashmere Sweater vs. Oxford.
Cashmere sweaters are a signature item in any Brooks shopper's closet. The same can be said of the polo button-down Oxford. In 1896, at a polo match in England, John E. Brooks, grandson of our founder, noticed something peculiar about the players’ collars: they were buttoned down so as to prevent their flapping in the wind. John brought his discovery back to #BrooksBrothers , and thus was born the button-down shirt – a Brooks classic and what some have called "the most imitated item in fashion history."

Vote in the comments section for your favorite – this next #BrooksBracket matchup should be a nail-biter: Non-Iron Shirt vs. Rep Tie. πŸ‘”
The non-iron is a #BrooksBrothers go-to for both our male and female customers alike; our mighty rep tie, meanwhile, has a more colorful past. Though already well-known in the U.K. as regimental ties, we switched the direction of the stripes in rep ties in the year 1902 – democratizing the pattern in the process.
