    I've never been a big fan of Brooks Brothers, and I certainly don't take my style cues from George F. Will, but I found this article fairly interesting: Link Â

    Thanks for the link, interesting article. Whenever I visit my parents and my Dad in I go into a Brooks Brothers I get the "back in my day" speech about Brooks Brothers quality. Like his hometown of Detroit, it is a lot easier to ruin something than it is to build something up.

    There have been changes for the better at BB since Mr. Del Vecchio purchased the company - mostly in choice of suiting fabrics.  Then, the other day, I saw a Brooks Brothers ad depicting a shark skin suit (gulp) with peaked lapels.  It may even be double vented.  Scandalous..

    Seriously, their Egyptian cotton underwear is nice, and reasonable.
