Back to school with Brooks Brothers Collegiate collection

August 18, 2011 | 10:07 am


Brooks Brothers has long been synonymous with a classic and preppy aesthetic, but its Collegiate Collection of university-driven clothing takes things to a new level. 

On Saturday, the brand will launch the line of woven ties, non-iron dress shirts, V-neck merino Princeton University Guard Stripe Tie and lambs wool sweaters and polos all emblazoned with the college insignias of 15 schools, including Yale, Boston College, Princeton, Columbia, Georgetown and Stanford. 

The ties (which are made in the company’s Long Island City tie factory) feel especially Ivy League, with university crests forming a repeat pattern all over them. Talk about school spirit.

The Brooks Brothers Collegiate collection will be available at the company's website   beginning Saturday.
