Brooks Brothers was founded in 1818 by Henry Brooks. The company was the first to create ready-to-wear clothing in 1849. Brooks Brothers famously clothed President Abraham Lincoln, who was killed wearing a bespoke black Brooks Brothers suit. In the early 1900s, Henry Brooks’ son John invented the Oxford cloth button-down shirt, or OCBD as it came to be known. In the 1950s, Brooks Brothers became a favorite of President John F. Kennedy and has been considered an iconic American menswear brand ever since.
