So it turns out that even in Shug hadn’t had a houndstooth sweet tooth we still may have been giving Brooks Brothers a harder time than they deserved. Because someone up there seems to know a lot more about Auburn than we we initially gave them and their houndstooth-turned-chevron Auburn tie credit for.
Exhibit Awesome (which was overnight-ed to us the day after our last Brooks Brothers-related post):
Why yes, that’s a Brooks Brother’s pajama top. But it’s the note attached that makes it:
Allow us: “For the next time Georgia Tech’s around. Best, Jason Nickel [Manager, Web Content and Social Media]. P.S. Honored to have Mr. Jordan as a client.”
Jason, you made our dang day.
You can check our Brooks Brothers Auburn collection here, and with the cleanest, dapper-est, most un-crimson conscience possible.

Very, very cool.
Now that’s a pretty smooth move on their part. Nicely done.
That was really awesome! Classy move, Brooks Bros.
That shows a company who is in the right mind set. For the price of a pajama top they get free advertising on a website with a large amount of readers, tons of goodwill, and a reputation of not being a stuffy company. More company’s need to see this and learn from it.
Are you kidding me?!?!? Moves don’t get much smoother than that! Wow.
Gah that was genius. Impressed.
I like this. Go Brooks.. and your brother.
Whoa. Mr. Nickel can come share some Mr. Daniels with me at the Auburn/ Ole Miss game. He can bring whatever brothers he wants.
I dont get the GT stab. We will be lounging next time GT is around? GT is so bad we can sleep through the game?
I wish we could have had a wreck tech parade during my time at AU!
AU students had a tradition of wearing PJ’s at the “wreck tech” parades. The tradition started because AU students (when John Heisman coached) snuck out in the middle of the night before the GT game (in their PJ’s) and greased the railroad track. When the Tech football team arrived, their train couldn’t stop and over shot the depot by a couple miles. The players and coaches had to walk that distance back to town and were exhausted and ended up losing to underdog Auburn.
Not just any students, Mamasgravy. If I recall correctly, it was the Corp of Cadets. Ahh, the history of the War Eagle Battalion. Proud to be a graduate and commissioned from that program.
