Brown houndstooth men's jacket

This men's jacket is labelled Rembrandt, a Wellington menswear label. The business started out as a tailor's shop called Bert Churchill Tailors. In 1952 they held a brainstorming session to create a name for the company’s new line of suits and Rembrandt was chosen (apparently beating off a strong challenge from Michelangelo). The business name was changed to Rembrandt not long after.
