just in time for Spring

Many of us, myself included, seem to get quite excited when a brand fills up their shops with new arrivals for the season.  With Brooks Brothers being one of those brands, they really do have a lot of great new spring items to choose from.  However, while their spring clothing looks awesome, I am actually really liking their new additions to their footwear collection the most.  Besides the always good looking and well made Peal & Co. shoes, Brooks Brothers has also turned to Rancourt & Co. again as a newer collaboration which has yielded excellent results.  On the upper end of the cost spectrum, Brooks Bros. is also stocking Edward Green shoes.  Below are a few of my favorites, but certainly not all of them… Go check them out.

A couple of weeks ago, I said that there are different schools of thought on how a jacket should fit, but trousers should only fit one way. Upon reflection, I now realize that was a bit misleading. There’s a difference between style and fit. Generally speaking, style is about silhouette, whereas fit is about whether something sit on you correctly. Simon Crompton has a good article about this difference.

There are different silhouettes for jackets, but the rules we have for how they should fit are similar to those we have for trousers.
