The Brooks Brothers Blazer Chair

On the first of this month I moved into a new apartment, which I promptly began decorating with a menswear vibe (grey flannel-colored walls, custom houndstooth curtains, Churchill dot throw pillow… ), but I wish I’d known about this Brooks chair before I started buying furniture so I could have begged them to sell me one.

I spied it last evening on the fourth floor at 346 Madison, where I was checking out the spring sportcoats. There was a pair of them that looked great together. The material felt like doeskin, and the chair was button-tufted with brass Golden Fleece blazer buttons. The rep-striped pillow completed the blazer-and-tie look.

Perhaps Brooks should use its newly vacant space next door for a furniture store. — CC

  1. I want it! Pair it with a tufted grey flannel ottoman!

  2. This is cool…in a Brooks Brothers shop.

  3. Not sure if you caught this, but Lands’ End is being shopped: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702303404704577311931262356596.html

    Apparently Lands’ End products turned out to be
    too upscale for Sears customers.

  5. Ok, your definitely not coming over to my house. You will be suicidal if you saw my Peal & Co. leather trunk that we use as a coffee table.

  6. Guaranteed to collect more dust, cat hair,etc. than any other upholstery material known to man.

  7. Perfectly tacky. That takes real skill.

  8. I used to make the Mayfair chairs for Ralph Lauren which pretty much looks like what this is based on. You’re paying over the odds prices for the quality of the construction with these chairs even if the fabric used to upholster them is of good quality. Go mid-centruy classic CC.

  9. Herringbone tweed would have been far more attractive.

  10. This is a stunning chair, however I agree with Fairfield, a tweed would be attractive. Paired together, would be something. Yes, my last Cairn Terrier was Blazer, the current one is named Bow-Tie.

  11. I shop at Lands’ End. I DESPISE Sears for a number of reasons.

    I would love a chair like this, but I’d also love it to be 50 years old first.

  12. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
