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
