A "heritage OCBD"? Don't hold you breath. The buttondown shown should better be labeled a "heresy OCBD"
Points a bit short. No collar roll, etc.
As for the clothing, don't get me started on the square shoulders on every jacket. Check out Scott Fitzgerald. He's acually wearing a "heritage OCBD"
and a jacket with natural shoulders;
The collection is awful. It's a cartoonish version of the1920s The 1974 version with Robert Redford featured clothing
by Ralph Lauren and looked more authentic. To me it's just another stage in Brooks Brothers downward spiral. I know
the menswear market is not what it was 30 or 40 years ago, but Brooks, compared to the upstart Ralph Lauren and
on a more limited scale, Paul Stuart two highly successful purveyors of (updated) the Ivy League Style, Brooks has blown
it at every turn. Anyone remember "Brooks English" their failed brand from the '90s?
Haha, a long shot, I know. I figure if some marketing person at BB wanted to get the SF/Internet style market (which is probably tiny, haha), they'd make an OCBD to specifications from 1955 (maybe slim it down to slim fit/extra slim fit specifications), and charge $150 for it. I'd probably buy one…
As for the "cartoonish" aspect of it, I think that's perhaps what they were going for. I was reading the "about" page on the BB website for this collection, and it looks like the director and costume designer specifically aimed to make them a bit costumey. As they put it: "The archival images were just a jumping off point. In order to create costumes that would match Baz Luhrmann's bold 3D reinterpretation of the book, Martin had to create costumes that were strikingly theatrical, and at the same time rooted in history."
In other words, these aren't meant to be 100% accurate and authentic.
As for natural shoulders, I agree—I wish Brooks would back off from their full padding.
