Brooks Brothers hooks up with Supreme NYC
Street and Skate Store Supreme has teamed up with traditional Ivy League Brooks Brothers for a Bold and pretty darn stylish Seersucker release featuring the jacket seen above and matching pants. As you can see the Jacket has the Red and White Supreme tag along side the classic Dark Navy and white Brooks Brothers Tag on the sleeve. I suspect these are two tags that will stay on most buyers sleeve as they rock this look for Spring 2014.
The picture above appeared on the Supreme London Store Manager’s Instagram @mrjagger_ After researching it a bit on the net, it seems it’s a picture taken from an article in an upcoming issue of the UK’s Man About Town Magazine. The release date of the Jacket and pants still seems to be a mystery. Update: Monday April 28, 2014. The Seersucker suit will be available in store NY, LA, London and on-line Thursday May 1, 2014. Available in Japan on Saturday May 3, 2014. Price $549. While doing this blog posting I noticed that most Supreme drops are on Thursdays. More pix of the suit here.
The April 10 newspaper edition of WWD confirms that this jacket along with a pair of trousers will be released soon by the two Mega Brands. According to WWD the lining will have a black and white star pattern and the suits silhouette is Brooks Brothers’ slimmer and younger Fitzgerald model. The two piece seersucker suit will be available at Supreme. From what I’ve seen during my December trips to NYC, Supreme has some pretty long lines for their limited edition Shirts and Kicks. I would suspect a BIG line for this gear. And I kinda’ doubt it will show up on their on-line boutique. But it’s for sure worth a try to look and find out. I wonder if like the shirts and kicks; if this suit goes for double or triple on E-Bay? My vote would be yes. And Yeah, I admit it would also keep the tags on it and wear it out of the house just like the picture above.
Supreme has collab’d with many including Nike, North Face Comme des Garcons, Vans, Champion and in 2011 they worked with Adam Kimmel on an unlined black and navy two button suit jacket and pants made from Italian cotton Twill. I think that this Seersucker collab is a Big Time Winner for both the younger and older fans of both brands especially the Supreme followers. I could see this jacket worn by many a bike courier and fashion designer in NYC and by many others in various professions throughout the world. Streetzblog recommend that you should get this very stylish suit collab if you can!
