Origin story: The OCBD

One of Brooks Brothers founders, John Brooks, observed during a polo match in Englad that players pinned their shirt collars down to prevent flapping during play. Inspired, Brooks went on to create the Original Polo® Button-Down collar dress shirt. Brooks Brothers has a long history with clothing that transitions seamlessly from sport to street.

In the Ivy-League

The white Oxford button-down is foundational to the prep school and Ivy League collegiate style popularized in the 1960s.
