The vintage Brooks Brothers sport shirt
Way back in the olden days, when giants roamed the Earth and you could hear great rock and roll music that jumped out of a single speaker in the dashboard, Brooks Brothers made sport shirts.
They still do, but the "large" has sleeves that go to my knuckles and I can't button up a "medium." (For reference, I'm 5'9", 170 or so, and wear a 16.5 x 33 shirt.)
Old BB sport shirts, however, all seem to fit me extremely well. I think it's just dumb luck, frankly.
Here are two vintage specimens that arrived yesterday. I'd be interested to know the exact vintage — that one label is very minimal.
Now I can't button these all the way up, but I'm not going to wear a tie with these anyway, so who cares?
