The 346 sportswear fashion failures make me feel a bit better about today's BB. Love the belted cardigan vest. Also 4" ties across the board.

Five of the 32 pages in the Fall 1970 Brooks Brothers catalog are devoted to the '346' line.

What RMP says about the quality of the old '346' line rings true. The '346' Scottish wool sports jacket is priced at $100, just $30 less than the comparable 'Own Make' Scottish wool version.

The 'University Shop' line is more modestly priced. It has two Scottish wool sports jackets listed for $80.

The CPI Inflation Calculator indicates that $130 = $794.44 in today's dollars. $100 = $611.11. $80 = $488.89

I've scanned and uploaded the '346' line pages from this catalog. I didn't scan the missing page in the sequence, which is devoted to Boys clothing.

True, but it was 1970, after all.
