Brooks Brothers Repents, Changes Description of Auburn Tie From ‘Houndstooth’ To ‘Chevron’

Shortly after we broke the news that Brooks Brothers’ had finally released its new Auburn collection—specifically the news that the collection included a houndstooth Auburn tie—the interwebs erupted.

Some liked the look but the majority of the Auburn Family deemed “Auburn houndstooth” an oxymoron, emphasis on the moron.  Some folks questioned Brooks’ judgment, some expressed their opinion that the Auburn houndstooth wasn’t houndstooth at all.

And Brooks Brothers listened.

The description of the tie in question has now been changed from “Auburn University Houndstooth Tie” to “Auburn University Chevron Tie.”

Now we can feel good about looking good again. #GoBrooksBrothers.
