Brooks Brothers has opened 26,000-square-foot, four-story flagship store at 240 Post Street in Union Square. It's the brand's second largest retail location in North America and it's just the latest in a transformation of the shopping district that's been ongoing for the past several years.
The interior design of the new Brooks Brothers space harkens back to the 100-year-old company's NYC flagship on Madison Avenue, with antique touches, including a pool table. The store sells the brand's full men's and women's collection, and features a "shop-in-shop" for the Fleece children's collection, which is designed by Thom Browne.
The brand has had a presence in San Francisco since 1939 when it opened a sales office and showroom at 111 Sutter. A permanent store went in at Post and Grant near Maiden Lane in 1958, and it moved to 150 Post Street in July 2000, and stayed there until this year. A Black Fleece by Brooks Brothers boutique opened at 2223 Fillmore Street in 2010.
