Thom Browne is giving his Black Fleece customer a history lesson of sorts. At his March 18 fall presentation, he served up new renditions of Brooks Brothers' iconic pieces like argyle knits and Norfolk jackets. He turned the latter, for instance, into a camel overcoat and chicly reworked a caped trench from the Thirties. Browne used old-school fabrics, too. "As opposed to everyone researching new fabrics, I've gone back to what was used in the past, like those heavy wools," he noted. One relatively new concession: a cashmere version of last spring's madras plaid pattern.
The Brooks Bros. main collection, meanwhile, addressed city and country gals alike. Sharp blazers, sexy sheaths, long cardigans, fur-collared coats and gala gowns — the stylish lineup had it all. The overall look — classic American style through and through. Think preppy chic by way of the North Shore.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
