2019 collection has just arrived from our Tokyo runway with impeccable style.
1979 was a
good year: the height of new wave music, the introduction of portable tape
players and the opening of our first international Brooks Brothers shop in
Tokyo. To celebrate 40 years of international style, we hosted our Fall runway
show at the iconic Meijijingu Gaien stadium. GQ’s Creative
Director at Large, Jim Moore, styled the collection with incredible
attention to pattern and texture mixing, bringing his refreshing perspective to
each look––an homage to heritage that feels both timeless and new. “Putting a
hoodie with a tweed jacket takes the jacket to a new place but keeps it
is carefully studied and cultivated with an acute sense of curiosity. A culture
of exceptional taste and aesthetic prowess, the Japanese take time to
understand authenticity—true, classic quality—the story behind every garment. A
glimpse at any Japanese fashion magazine unveils a highly detailed
world of style often dedicated to one single product: every variation, version,
ethos and reference imaginable, all captured with a playful sophistication
that’s uniquely Japanese. Even if it’s not your first, second or language at
all, their original mix of textures and proportions allows you to step into
their culture and value what they value—authenticity, quality, history and
innovative thinking—just as we do. For 40 years, it’s been inspiring to see our
collections adapted and styled in such original ways.
The first collection pieces have just arrived in time for the Fall season and we’ve put together some of our favorite looks from the show.
1, The 14-wale stretch cotton corduroy pants in Milano fit may just be the most versatile pair of the new season, veering from tradition just slightly enough to exude personal character and effortless sophistication. For a refined look, pair with our cashmere sweater in contrasting black, softer navy or tonal beige. For the weekend, one of our Fall Fair Isle sweaters is also a well-textured choice.
2. Our merino wool rowing blazer is unstructured and knit, bringing a sporty sensibility to tailored slim-fit denim, chinos or wide-leg ankle-skimming pants. Match with our classic blue or white oxfords, a textured sweater, or, for a borrowed-from-the-boys look, one of our boys’ polo shirts.
3. Prep-school style for the evolved: Our ivy green-striped oxford sport shirt is designed to be layered with contrasting colors and patterns. Pair with our rust-stripe archive tie, beautifully draped navy overcoat and wool trousers for a smart look. From sport to street, our burgundy baseball hat in the finest pure wool adds a casual touch.
4. Made-to-Measure for the relaxed-yet-distinctive: The houndstooth tweed suit can be worn to the office, in the country, or globe-trotting—all with complete ease and a change of shirt. Pair with a rotation of bold oxford shirts, like our reversible bomber jacket––a fresh take on color and proportion that makes it simple to wear a customized and personalized suit every day.
5. Break the formalwear: Our white oxford may make for an unconventional formal shirt, but its wrinkle-resistant nature brings understated formal flair to our 1818 tuxedo pants and Golden Fleece penny loafers––a refined, cool way to get more mileage out of both.
6. Heading to an event, dinner or both? For a sophisticated look blending European sensibility and American heritage, pair a white polo with a Made to Measure velvet dinner jacket in a handsomely refined shade of green. Our 1818 tuxedo pants or grey flannel trousers add versatility to this ensemble.
