Brooks Brothers has put into practice a wise and true maxim: The older the better- at least when it comes to tailors. At its Long Island City factory, over half of the Brooks Brothers employees are over 55. Realizing that senior tailors make fewer mistakes and excel at their work, this esteemed men’s clothier (itself dating to 1818) works hard to accommodate the needs and schedules of older workers, including time off for health appointments or (grandchildren’s) school events. They even regularly invite back retired workers to help during busy seasons. So tie that tie, straighten your cuffs, and Read This.
