Brooks Brothers is known for its classic, preppy style, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a few pieces that are slightly more trendy or outside of the box! I recently visited Brooks Brothers in Saddle Creek for a shoot, and while I did see the usual suspects (plaid chino shorts, navy blue blazers), I was pleasantly surprised by the other pieces that I saw!

In addition to the classics, there were boldly patterned shorts, dreamsicle colored button ups, and a few more playful socks and swimwear trunks (I didn’t even know they carried these!).
