The good people at Southwick sent along the spring summer 2009 catalog. There has been a buzz around the storied American brand with the collaboration with Engineered Garments and more recently the company’s acquisition by Brooks Brothers. Plans for Southwick were further discussed in DNR today. “In an interview, Claudio Del Vecchio, CEO of Brooks, said Southwick is a â€œmajor supplierâ€ to Brooks Brothers, ‘so we were very interested in them and seeing them improve their quality.'” I think Southwick being sold to Brooks Brothers isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Like others, I hope that Brooks will do the right thing and keep Southwick pure.
The look book came as a folded newspaper a la WWD. I love the concept.
