Brooks Brothers Brings The Polo Shirt To The U.S.

During a trip to England at the end of the 1800s, John E. Brooks, heir to the American Brooks Brothers haberdasher attended a polo game and noticed the button down collars on the shirts of the polo players. Thinking it was a brilliant idea, he brought back the idea to his grandfather, and they began to introduce a new dress shirt with a button-down collar that we know of today as the button down dress shirt. Despite the idea and design of the polo shirt progressing, Brooks Brothers still maintains that they created the original polo shirt.
