Brooks Brothers is the oldest clothing store in the United States. It was started in New York in 1818 which makes it almost 200 years old. They were the first clothier to pioneer ready-made suits in 1850, when back then all new suits were custom made by a tailor and needed to be ordered weeks in advance. Since then the company has offered many firsts to their customers and has grown to offer all types of apparel and shoes for men, women, and youth. Brooks Brothers is a high end clothier and has the prestige of outfitting 39 of the 44 American Presidents plus many stars of Hollywood. Currently you can buy Brooks Brothers clothes and shoes online or at one of their 210 stores across the United States, and 70 stores found in over 20 other countries.
The Brooks Brothers website supports desktop computers and mobile devices and is setup similar to other clothing retailers. The top menu is divided by men, women, and kids along with a sale and magazine category. The menu is then further divided into sections which promotes featured products, apparel, and shoes & accessories for each of the genders. Featured products includes what Brooks Brothers is best know for. This includes dress and sport shirts, ties, Polos & sweaters, and casual pants & shorts. We also can't forget the Brooks Brothers made to order custom shirts & suits.
Selecting a clothing, shoe or accessory category from one of the sections will bring you to the categories gallery page. From here you can page through a list of products. For each product the name, an image, price, and any savings discount will be listed. If the apparel comes in different colors you can also select from these to change the gallery image of the product to that particular color. If an average customer rating exists for that product it will be displayed as well. In the left hand column of the gallery you will be able to refine what products are displayed in the category with a number of different filters. You can specify what sizes, colors, fit, and other related attributes of the product category you are viewing (i.e. for shirts you can specify collar or pattern).
Once you have found a product you like, just click on the gallery image to view the product detail page. Here you will find larger images of the product which you can mouse over to see a magnified view. A description is also given which highlights the features of the garment. If it is something you like, you can then add it to your shopping bag (your cart) by selecting the color, size, and fit (if applicable) along with the quantity you wish to purchase. If you are logged into your Brooks Brothers account you may also add the product to your wishlist. Brook Brothers sizing charts are accessible from every product page just in case you want to review any measurements to determine what size you need. On the product page you can also view any reviews posted or add your own review of the product. On your review you can give a title, description, along with rating the fit, quality, and appearance of the clothing or shoe.
