I can’t help but wonder why Brooks Brothers doesn’t do more to let people know they offer a range of $80-a-pop, US-made, extra-slim fit oxford shirts. Clearly, the co. has been taking aim at the young, lithe Americana set as of late, and yet, they do little – if anything – to spotlight that specific collection, leaving it one of the best kept secrets in menswear. Which is a shame, since they really are great. The fit is excellent (way slimmer than Gitman), the fabrics are nice and heavy (the kind you actually have to break-in), and the construction is top-notch (handcrafted in North Carolina). And then, of course, there’s the price – $80 a piece, or, three for $189 – which puts them in a class all their own. So, why BBros isn’t trying sell the hell out of these, I’ll never know. But, at least that means they’ll have your size in stock… for now.
