After years of shaping their presence in the industry with their trademark varsity jackets, oxfords shirts, hand painted chinos and unmistakable styling. The Brooklyn Circus launches their spring/summer 2016 season with a collection of beautifully designed classic t-shirts by veteran graphic designer Andrew Cunningham.

Launched in 2006 as an extension to their multi branded clothing store, The Brooklyn Circus in house private label quickly became the most sought after product in the Bergen street flagship store, Japan, Korea, Europe as well as their San Francisco outpost. The t-shirts serve as a canvas and entry point into the brand, with varsity jackets being the most sought after items that continue to tell the graphic stories that have become a trademark of the brand. 




Style is informed by a moment in time, and context is captured by presentation.

The Brooklyn Circus/BKc is a menswear brand that finds inspiration in the pages of history books. Everything we make has a story, from the construction of our varsity jackets to the looms where our denim is woven, and we take these elements into consideration when we cultivate our brand. We are here to tell the story of style throughout American history and to emphasize the power of presentation. We want to change the way Americans dress, one iconic silhouette at a time through the 100-Year Plan. Welcome to the circus.
