Brooks Brothers has officially opened its third Miami location at Aventura Mall today, with an bevy of merchandise that would attract the likes of Clark Gable, Andy Warhol and Katherine Hepburn rolled together, mainly because it did back in their day and continues to do so to sartorially savvy ladies and gents who love a little all-American class. After all, this is the nation's oldest known retailer, and they are responsible for implementing seersucker as a national fabric.
The presidential outfitter (Brooks Brothers has outfitted 39 of our 44 U.S. presidents, including Abraham Lincoln and his Inaugural Great Coat) has opened its doors next to Nordstrom, and carries 7,600 square feet of the brand's Fall and Winter 2014 collections for both men and women, the brand spankin' new "Red Fleece" collection, which gives a more backwoods take on preppy basics, and even has a kids section. One store where you can grab basics for the whole family? It's the American Dream, honey. The American Dream.
