Brooks Brothers Fun Shirt! Size 16-XL A preppy summer icon, the Brooks Brothers "Fun Shirt" was created by accident. In the early 1970s the Brooks Brothers VP Ash Wall was visiting the company's shirt factory and noticed a stack of shirts constructed from panels of different material. Noting that "those are some fun shirts", it was explained to him that these were shirts produced by apprentices who were just learning to sew. Liking them, Ash took some back to the company headquarters, where they were an instant hit. Soon after, they were offered to the public--and an icon was born! This is an original vintage Brooks Brothers fun shirt, cut from lightweight summer cotton. It was been recently professionally laundered, and is in excellent condition, with the exception of the laundry marks for the original owner in the collar. Tagged 16-XL. Asking just $20, or offer, shipped in the USA.
