    I love and appreciate this kind of stuff. Thanks. Brooks Bros are a mainstay, a lighthouse.

    If I don’t have to, I try not to wear socks in any month with the letter “r” in it. However, I must get around to discovering cashmere socks!

    Now that’s style. I wish most people “dressed.” Who doesn’t look at pictures of his or her grandparents and sigh over the well-made, polished looks (no matter what economic means they had). This Brooks Brothers VP harkens back to style at its best!

    I like the philosophy behind his look.

    In 1980 I went to NY with my girlfriend and my first stop was Brooks Brothers where I received amazing service. I bought a beautiful shirt, a silver keyring and cashmere socks. 2006; same girlfriend, still have the keyring, shirt is gone and my brother stole my cashmere socks. Brooks Brothers still exists.
    Life is good.

    He gets major respect for wearing Creed. Top of the line cologne that matches his impeccable style.

    Small thing– the correct name for the Creed cologne cited here is “Erolfa.” The kind Gary Cooper used to wear!

    Oh, I like him! But all the references to Italian style are surprising.

    Damn!

    Sorry to hear about Old England!

    That was one of my faves!

    I would love to buy neopolitan style pants (barba, borrelli) at Brooks Brothers.

    I’m always stealing my husband’s Brooks Brothers shirts…today I’ve taken his French Blue button down.

    I agree with Anonymous 12:42!

    Surely there must be a market for one trouser that does not have room for a sack of potatoes in the back of the thigh.

    We are not all supersized! And Banana, we are talking to you too!

    Just bring back a plain front Brooks Brothers trouser circa 1965, maybe a version with side tabs in staple fabrics and we can all stop looking high and low, and KNOW that they will be there next season for F sakes!

    Congrats to BB, the last few seasons have actually produced clothes I’d wear.

    London is catching up???
    Once you’ve seen one Italian man, you’ve seen them all. London on the other hand has a lot of individualism.
    Like personal style, it’s all subjective, I suppose…

    I like the BB concept but the execution is for big round men. Even their slim fit is a fricking circus tent on me. The pants could be repurposed for some Cristo exhibit.

    Brooks Brothers Dress Shirts cannot be torn, only broken. And that after repeated tries.

    “Brooks Brothers Dress Shirts cannot be torn”

    I just went to pull up my Brooks Brothers sleeve and it tore. Either I am incredibly strong or this shirt isn’t that great. Haven’t ever had a problem with other shirts which cost much less.

    I have not realized that you used to do these style profiles so long back on your blog. I find them really good and educative and I hope it becomes a permanent feature on your blog. I also enjoyed the street style from Stockholm, it makes me really proud to be European. And because of this blog I really want to see New York. You make it sound as an inspirational city. :)
    thank you!
