Ellison Capers Palmer, Jr. Professor of History Winthrop University


Rock Hill, SC

“For over 35 years I have been a university professor and have worn Brooks Brothers clothing to every class I’ve ever taught. When I was starting out my career it was not unusual for faculty members to wear coats and ties to teach their classes. As the years progressed I noticed that more and more faculty wore clothing similar to the students.

And each generation of my students consistently tell me that I am the best-dressed professor they have.  One said that I am a walking advertisement for Brooks Brothers. They appreciate a teacher who comes to class each day looking professional and well dressed.  It sets an example for them.  I have bought something in a Brooks Brothers in every city I have ever visited. ”
