On Thusday it was reported that Brooks Brothers will cease its Black Fleece collection headed by Thom Browne. The New York Times interviewed both Browne and Brooks CEO Claudio del Vecchio, and writes:
“I don’t think people ever saw the collection as being inappropriate or irresponsible to live within the world of Brooks Brothers,” Mr. Browne said. “I think that’s what we’re all most proud of.”
This fall will mark the collection’s final season, though it may be revived in the future.
Those who felt that of all the things Brooks could be doing, Black Fleece was not it, might feel inspired to burst into celebratory song. The following lyrics would only require a minor tweaking. — CC
