TIE FACTORY

Photos: Maria Bastida

Last Wednesday I spent the day in Brooks Brothers headquarters, located on Madison Avenue. 
For those who don't know the brand, Brooks Brothers is the oldest men's clothier chain in the United States. 
It was founded in 1818 as a family business and it is universally recognized for classic clothing and conservative style. 

I spent most of the time in the production department and by the end of the day we visited their tie factory,
 located in Long Island. Their fabrics, materials and machinery are high quality 
and it was very interesting to see how to create a tie from scratch. 
Definitely a very enriching experience.

El pasado miércoles pasé el dia en los headquartes de Brooks Brothers situados en la Quinta Avenida. 
Para los que no conocéis Brooks Brothers, es una de las marcas más antiguas en los Estados Unidos. 
Fué fundada en 1818 como una empresa familiar y a día de hoy es mundialmente reconocida
por su ropa clásica y estilo conservador.

Pasé el dia en el departamento de producción y por la tarde visitamos la fabrica de corbatas que tienen en Long Island. 
Sus tejidos y maquinaria son de una calidad excelente y fue interesante ver como se crea una corbata paso a paso. 
Definitivamente una experiencia muy enriquecedora.
