Classic American brand Brooks Brothers has arrived at Arnotts menswear department.

The iconic US brand, which began trading almost 200 years ago, will be exclusive to the Arnotts department store in Dublin.

Valerie O’Neill, Menswear and Childrenswear Director at Arnotts said “Spring Summer 12 is a very exciting season. Brooks Brothers are known for their timeless classics and quality in make and materials which will resonate strongly with the Arnotts customer”.

The brand mixes traditional tailoring with bright colours and this season their collection focuses on updating the classics. The cut is a lot slimmer and with warm weather (hopefully) coming our way the garments have a casual comfort feel, with an athletic influence.

A classic white shirt, a staple for every man's wardrobe €110

For those who are decidedly more risky the palette continues towards a tropical, marine vibe with aqua and crystal blue alongside banana yellow and tigerlily orange.

One of the bright polo shirts in the collection, €75

The brand caters to every dapper man; bright, slim and athletic for the younger man-about-town and traditional, classic and trusted for the older fashionable man. Not bad for a brand that boasts that every American president since Lincoln has sported their threads!

Navy knit €100

Striped light blazer €275
