"Born in 1901, Brown's Beach hails from Worcester, Massachusetts. A region accustom to harsh winters, it's by no surprise founder Mr. William. W. Brown created an icon. The epitome of American work wear, its humble origins as a beach cloth company gave rise to over a century of wear. Known for its durability, warmth, and salt and pepper appearance, the classic cotton/wool blend fabric became a national treasure. Revived in 2010 by Full count and Co, authentically reproduced garments can be found in an updated silhouette. If its Salt and Pepper, think Brown's Beach. If it's beach, think Brown's.
