I Got Stripes


As you know, my closet is full of staple pieces. One that I had been searching for a while was a blue striped OCBD. I had looked at many different places, but read some bad reviews that scared me away from purchasing from any of them. I finally settled on Brooks Brothers. Known as a classic in the #menswear world, I knew they would have what I wanted. Sure enough with their new Red Fleece line, they have produced some great OCBD and other classic prep items. With a slimmer fit and shorter cut, I was a little hesitant to buy it online, but I went ahead as the Brooks Brothers customer service department has never let me down.

“I got stripes, stripes around my shoulders,
I got chains, chains around my feet.”
– Johnny Cash (I Got Stripes)

Once I tried the shirt on, I knew I had made a good purchase. The shirt is shorter and can come untucked after the up-downs in the office, but luckily I have my Magnetucks. The overall fit is very nice and looks great tucked or untucked. I am very pleased with my purchase and have already put it to a lot of good use. If you are in the market for a good OCBD or more specifically a striped OCBD, I would highly suggest the powerhouse team from Brooks Brothers.

    Brooks Brothers is the gold standard for oxfords. Nothing compares.

      Agree! They are a classic. They have had their troubles, but they are getting back on track.
