Hello-Hello, and Happy Monday!
These images were posted this weekend on the new Brooks Brothers Facebook page.
The new line is slated to launch in time for back-to-school shopping.
According to the Brooks FB page, information about a private Fleece Trunk Show for FB fans will be announced on their FB Wall (for those unfamiliar with Facebook, this is rather like one’s home page, for lack of a better term). Our hats are off to the design team at B2, for the most part we think the girls collection looks promising.
While the majority of the Fleece styles for young men are also impressive, we have a moderate concern about this:
As many readers are more than tired of hearing aware, our LogoPhobia can be triggered by something like the item seen above, and in the case of Brooks Brothers, we are off the grid a bit sensitive to the topic, borderline hysterical concerned that logos on sweatshirts are merely the first step on a slippery slope. A slope that this company has judiciously avoided in most respects.
Saturday brought us our monthly issue of WSJ magazine, always a fun read. This issue was particularly enjoyable for any preppish reader, beginning with the cover story, “The Church of Mickey Drexler, Inside the world of J. Crew’s evangelical CEO“.
Tina Gaudoin’s profile is enlightening, and while we are not terribly fond of many Crew fashion decisions, we cannot fault Mr. Drexler’s business acumen.
Mr. Browne is perhaps best known to Princess readers as the designer of Brooks Brothers’ Black Fleece collections, as well as the man pushing higher hemlines. For men.
We want to mention another children’s line, this one from Princess favorite, J. McLaughlin.
We like a number of the dresses for girls, along with other offerings in the limited edition collection.
Here is one of the day’s Pretty in Pink offerings, Marilyn Monroe in her iconic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes dress.
The famous gown was sold at auction this weekend for a staggering $309,000.
For another Pretty in Pink that is also an Adventure in Argyle, we bring you this image via the always-on-top-of-things Erin at Pink and Green Scene.

We leave you with this image as we celebrate and honor Flag Day.
Goodbye until next time!
