Brooks Brother is an American-made apparel company founded in the 1800s in New York. Sources report, "Evidence shows that the national reach and different product lines of Brooks Brothers necessarily resulted in the company profiting from the slave economy. This evidence includes the structure of Brooks Brothers’ business, still-existing examples of Brooks Brothers-supplied clothing, and Brooks Brothers appeals to southern clients to pay outstanding bills."
Brooks Brothers also profited from selling "slave clothes" to slaveowners and slave traders. Any attempt to receive acknowledgment from Brooks Brothers involvement in the Transatlantic Slave Trade has been met with no response.
No public acknowledgment or apology has been given.
