Our Respect for Brooks Brothers

. . . is considerable. While the width of the lapels on men's jackets expanded and contracted wildly between the 1930s and the 1970s, those on Brooks Brothers' suits were modified by no more than 1/4 inch. Similarly, as neckties expanded to the size of dinner napkins, and shrank to resemble dental floss, BB's neck fashions changed hardly at all. Particularly in the late 1970s, when men wore bell-bottomed pants dragging on the ground, the correct break (very slight) of Brooks Brothers trousers could be spotted across a courtroom. (Trust me.)

That being said, what the heck is THIS? That jacket is way too tight, no?
