Senior Costing Engineer
For nearly two centuries, Brooks Brothers has been the model for quintessential American style. The Brooks Brothers name has become synonymous with a certain kind of classic elegance that is at once stylish and impeccably correct. While fashions come and go Brooks Brothers has demonstrated that the desire for quality and good taste remains constant.
On April 7, 1818 Henry Sands Brooks opened a small clothing store in the corner of Catherine and Cherry Streets in New York City. It was Brooks’ dedication to his own high standards of quality, value, and service – combined with a commitment to remaining current without compromise – that established the clothier’s dominance in both the American marketplace and in its collective imagination.
As the oldest apparel retailer in America, Brooks Brothers has been the innovator of many classic styles such as the Ready-Made Suit, the Button-Down shirt and repp ties. With a client list that ranges from Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy to Katharine Hepburn, Fred Astaire, and Andy Warhol, Brooks Brothers is more than an icon. For generations of gentlemen, women, and boys, Brooks Brothers has been – and continues to be – a way of life.
