Founded in 1818, Brooks Brothers has become synonymous with innovation, pioneering, unique and unsurpassable quality in classic men’s clothing. Brooks Brothers initially became widely known for launching the ready-to-wear suit in the USA. Later on, they made history once again by marketing the now legendary button down shirt. The company never stops innovating and its latest achievements include cotton non – iron shirts and stain-resistant ties made from pure silk.
The most famous and best dressed men throughout many eras have worn Brooks Brothers clothing, from Clark Gable, Cary Grant and Fred Astaire, to the Duke of Windsor, Gianni Agnelli and many others. Entire generations of the Astor, Vanderbilt and Rockefeller families were Brooks Brothers’ customers, along with five generations of the Morgan family, including J.P. Morgan . It is an open secret that Brooks Brothers is the favourite fashion house of the American political system: Brooks Brothers products were, and still are, the first choice for 37 of the 44 presidents of the United States, from Αbraham Lincoln to J. F. Kennedy and Barack Obama.
Today, BROOKS BROTHERS suits, blazers, shirts and ties set the benchmark for style. Wall Street businessmen, bankers and financiers all “invest” in the BROOKS BROTHERS style to make their mark. The Brooks Brothers logo, a sheep suspended in a ribbon, dates back to ancient Greece. The “Golden Fleece”, was adopted by Brooks Brothers in 1870 and is inspired by the ancient myth of Jason and the Argonauts. Brooks Brothers first came to Greece in the autumn of 2008 and up until 2010 it had three stores – the Brooks Brothers store in the GOLDEN HALL mall in Maroussi and two shop-in-shop corners in ATTICA and in GOLDEN ATTICA.
In November 2010, it opened the new Brooks Brothers store, the 4th to open, in City Link. More specifically, the store covers 500 sq m, at the corner of Stadiou and Amerikis Streets. The fashion house’s new flagship store in Greece stocks the entire range in the Brooks Brothers men’s collection, and there is a women’s department with specially selected pieces from the Brooks Brothers women’s collection and a children’s department featuring the Boys Collection for young gentlemen.
