Brooks Brothers® might be the oldest men’s clothier in America -- 1818, when guys had just given up wearing lace, and women wore the far less threatening than it sounds “Mob Cap” -- but they’re not stodgy about change. Case in point: their new West Coast Flagship, in Union Square at 240 Post. Inspired by New York’s century-old Madison Avenue store, the Post Flagship covers three floors and a mezzanine, stretching from the pale cherrywood of the first floor, to the dark mahogany of the men’s club-styled fourth. The cash desk does double duty as a coffee bar and lounge; you’ll also find a pool table, which unlike almost every other pool table in town does not require cash. Stock includes the full BB men’s and women’s lines, as well as the collegiate inspired Red Fleece collection and the Thom Browne-styled Black Fleece collection, which for Fall ’13 draws on Baroque architecture and a chiaroscuro palette -- a classic-progressive fusion so impressive, people will just assume you knew chiaroscuro was a palette, and not a dish at Kuleto’s.
