The brooksfield story started 12 years ago in Melbourne, late one afternoon after a long day of shopping. For years, we'd been searching the stores around town for a quality men's outfit that wasn't too basic or too precious. We wanted clothes that were made for a man with taste, that didn't feel too bland or overdone. Alas, we couldn't find one, so we decided to do it ourselves. Starting with a collection of bold business wares, we expanded quickly into business shirts, casual shirts, jackets and trousers, securing national distribution in Myer and a selection of independent boutiques.
