Brooks Brothers launched its highly-anticipated performance series with technical fabrics and tailored silhouettes wearers have come to love from the iconic formal wear brand. These options for men include layering pieces like vests and quarter zips as well as a healthy collection of short sleeve polos and long sleeve Oxford-style button downs, again all given the technical treatments of sportswear (think UV-protection, 4-way stretch, moisture-wicking, and antimicrobial properties) without sacrificing classic style, which have been in development for over the past year. Salmon, parsley, and lavender hues brighten the otherwise neutral palette of timeless white, khaki, steel gray, navy, black, and sky blue.

The American standout isn’t a stranger to the sports apparel world, having been inspired by British polo players in the late 1800s. While the brand has no plans to expand the performance line to their women or youth options, they are looking to innovate further with their fall releases, particularly in terms of sustainability. The current capsule has an envy-inducing collection of polos, with future offerings expanding in knit fabrics, bottoms, and outerwear. It also represents a philosophical shift for the company that took hits back in 2020 at the start of the pandemic as the need for formal wear plummeted. Catering to golfers’ needs is a smart move from a classic brand looking to make their tailored, high-quality silhouettes work for the modern day wearer.
