Jim Thompson and Brooks Garrett

“My grandson is named Brooks, so when he was about eight years old, we bought him his first Brooks Brothers polo shirt. He saw his name on the label and got very excited. He went to school and everyone asked about the insignia and he showed them his name on the label. Now he is sixteen, and has Brooks Brothers everything. That’s now become his style: the Brooks Brothers way. For this Christmas, he has already given us his list of wants—and, of course, most of the list is Brooks Brothers clothing, belts and socks included. Our Brooks is a walking Brooks Brothers advertisement. Of course his grandfather also wears Brooks Brothers and considers the brand to produce the best-wearing shirts I have ever owned.”
