Brooks Brothers and Scarosso Footwear Capsule Has Preppy Fans Covered from Office to Yacht Vacations

Brooks Brothers is teaming up with Scarosso on a footwear capsule celebrating the understated American and preppy styles.

The Italian footwear specialist and the American retailer have codesigned four styles, from a rubber-soled loafer with tassels, available in brown and blue suede, for the quiet luxury fans on vacation, to leather penny loafers in a deep burgundy shade and derby lace-ups. The lineup is complemented by an all-white sneaker design embellished with the golden Brooks Brothers logo on the tongue.

“We share with [Brooks Brothers] the passion for timeless designs and high-quality craftsmanship,” said Gaetano D’Angiulli, brand manager at Scarosso. “We are honored that Brooks Brothers, a brand that has defined American style on a global scale, has decided to collaborate with us,” he added.

The capsule collection is only available on the European e-commerce sites of Scarosso and Brooks Brothers as well as at select boutiques. The range retails between 250 euros for sneakers and 310 euros for derbies, with penny loafers and boat shoes priced at 250 and 280 euros, respectively.

This launch comes as the direct-to-consumer brand doubles down on its high-profile collaborations, which have included capsules with Nick Wooster, Lanificio Cerruti, Pietro Boselli, Brian Atwood and Paula Cademartori. The latter two have significantly increased the brand’s women’s business, D’Angiulli told FN in a 2022 interview.

More recently, Scarosso expanded into the kids’ footwear market. Launched in July, Scarosso’s “Loafers for Kids” collection draws inspiration from the company’s adult line with the concept of “same same but different” showcasing matching footwear for parents and their kids. The debut drop featured 16 colors of the Ludovica loafer for girls and eight colors of the Ludovico loafer for boys.

As for Brooks Brothers, the Authentic Brands Group owned label inked a long-term licensing deal last May with the Aldo Group for men’s footwear, bags and small leather goods. The 10-year licensing deal encompasses design, production and distribution of the collection.
