Back to school. Three words that a few years ago you dreaded hearing. Three words us recent grads probably wish we were hearing. Now back to school means you get to see friends you haven’t seen all summer, the start of rush week for most schools and the beginning of the college football season. And, for a handful of lucky schools, it marks the opportunity to combine the love of your school and the timeless quality of Brooks Brothers clothing for the first time with its newly launched Collegiate Collection ($69.50-$109.50).
Encompassing an initial selection of 15 schools, the Collegiate Collection ups the ante on college licensed apparel. While you can easily find a piece of clothing with your schools logo on it for relatively cheap, you will be missing out on the quality and craftsmanship that Brooks Brothers brings. While nearly all of the schools represented are found on the East Coast or in the South, the Midwest is represented by Ohio State and Notre Dame. The selection of apparel varies with each school and features ties, polos, dress shirts and sweaters. The logos, while present, are subtle and restrained. You won’t be finding anything gaudy here, so these blend seamlessly between classes, gamedays and days at the office.
If you happen to attend one of the schools featured in the collection, pick up a couple of pieces today. Otherwise, let Brooks Brothers know that you’d like them to consider your school for the next go round.
