Today GQ reported on the unveiling of the anticipated seersucker suit collaboration between Brooks Brothers and streetwear brand Supreme. Writes GQ:
But even meaner is the spin the Supreme team put on the preppy staple, swapping the traditional washed blue-and-white stripes for dark gray. Pop open the jacket and you’re hit with a black-and-white star print lining and of course, the unmistakable red-and-white Supreme logo. The overall effect is a classic suit gone gritty, one we could see worn with a crisp white oxford shirt and knit tie or even one of Supreme’s iconic tees.
According to Supreme’s site, the collaboration consists merely of a seersucker suit in the Fitzgerald cut, priced at $549, along with a bucket hat priced at $68. Below is one of Supreme’s marketing images (no idea if the fence is part of an incarceration facility):
Trad brands must find new markets somehow. Nevertheless, cast your vote on which duet is most surprising. — CC
