Afternoon Gentlemen, Brooks here again. Today, I pose you a question. What’s, best for you? In choosing a fabric for a custom made suit you have the option of selecting more season specific fabrics. For example, in the summer a lightweight worsted wool in the 8 to 9 ounce per yard category will serve you well as it breathes and resists wrinkling. Fabric weight is more important than color in hot weather. In cooler weather choose goods in the “S” or Super Range of 120. Higher numbers indicate finer fabrics which means warmer fabrics and not necessarily the best all around option for your suit. Ask your tailer to help you select which is best for you. Alright Gentlemen, that’s it for now. Remember, if you have any questions or aren’t too sure about what you’re doing, just give us a call and we’d be glad to help you out. Brooks

Pocket Squares

by brooksandsons· February 11, 2019· in Uncategorized· 0 comments
Good day Gentlemen, I hope you’re all doing well and 2019 is treating you all well. Today I want to talk to you about your pocket squares. When you suit up and wear a pocket square it is important to remember that whether you fold the square or stuff it in the pocket with points exposed, it does not matter. What DOES matter is that the square NOT match the necktie. Matching ties and squares on ties and braces looks too contrived and sends a visual message that you are wearing wallpaper. As alway, take my constructive criticism with a grain of salt. I’m just trying to help out. And if you have a question, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone and give me a ring. Until next time, keep it classy fellas. Richard Brooks

Get a Mirror!!

It’s time to let reality settle in, yes Super Bowl LIII was a bit of a let down if you love offense, on the other hand, were we not entertained!?!? Now then, down to the business at hand. I frequently have men come to me to evaluate the fit of their dress clothing. Most of the time the individual sees himself the first time in the mirror in my showroom. A full length mirror is an inexpensive purchase that can be made at Wal-Mart, installed on the back of a door in five minutes and used forever. The mirror allows you to see yourself the others see you. It’s time to take stock in yourself. Brooks and Sons is here to help you take that next step but first, it’s up to you to take a long hard look at yourself in that mirror. That’s all for now Gentlemen, keep it classy out there.

Hello Gentleman, It’s been a while but I trust 2018 is treating you all well. I can’t help but talk about Super Bowl LII. Texas pride has reached a new level thanks to Nick Foles with an amazing performance! Now then, I’m sure you, as I did, you noticed some very well dressed broadcasters, from Dan Patrick to Tony Dungy. It’s refreshing to see these men shine when the spotlight is on them. I am especially glad to see the revival of Minnesota Viking Purple on the fashion scene. This is a great neutral color that compliments blue and gray suits as well as tan and brown clothing. Every guy should be able to pull off a put-together look on a special occasion! If you’re looking to add some color to your wardrobe, give us a call and we’ll help you upgrade your look. Until next time, Brooks… signing off.
