David Rosen has been wearing Brutus since the year Arsenal won their first double in 1971. He works in the heart of Mayfair Village on Savile Row as one of London's most sought after property agents. He is a true creative, with an eye for style and honest design. A meticulous dresser, David is rarely seen without good shoes, a button down Brutus and a spring in his step.
Having first seen Brutus when it hit the market in the sixties, for David, the brand brings back memories of 'the spirit of Jazz on a summer's day.’
Greg Farmer is a traditional skin and scooterist originally from Maidstone, who currently lives and works in London. Greg works as the manager of Islington's Jigsaw Menswear and surrounds himself with well-made, well considered garments every day. He lives for traditional style and always keeps his boots shined, his trousers pressed and wears his Brutus Trimfit with pride.
Having spent much of his youth trying to track down a Trimfit, to Greg, wearing a Brutus today means owning a piece of strong British heritage and not settling for second best. 'I have my Sta-prest, I have my Solovairs, my Baracuta and now I have my Brutus. I nearly took the guy's arm off in Jump The Gun in Brighton for the shirt he was putting in the window on their rerelease.'
17-year-old Sid lives on the Isle of Wight and is the singer and bassist in the Oi/Punk band, Grade 2.
When he's not touring through Europe or working in London with Brutus, Sid spends his spare time catching up with his friends back home. Sid's love for style and music comes from the second wave of skinhead subculture in the 80's and the bands and fashion that originated at that time.
To Sid, Brutus is a classic British brand that has been part of different subcultures for years, 'when you're wearing a Trimfit you're guaranteed to look smart.'

Rachael and Josh are a young couple from Brighton who share a love for city life by the sea, Northern Soul dancing and sharp tailoring.
Jake Wigham is a young tailor from Carlisle who is currently studying Bespoke Tailoring at London College of Fashion. Three years ago Jake left his bricklaying job to try his hand at tailoring, now he spends his days working in the studio and his nights dancing at reggae or soul nights in the city.
To Jake, Brutus means keeping things classic, 'where other skinhead brands have lost their way, Brutus have stayed true to their original ethos and that's why they rule the market.' His favourite way to wear a Trimfit is with a pair of freshly pressed trousers and braces, or a tie and a bespoke waistcoat for more formal occasions.
Brutus Ambassador Missy recently moved to the UK from her hometown of Sydney, Australia. Missy spends her time travelling, going to Oi! and reggae gigs, and DJing an eclectic mix of glam-rock, 60's garage, soul and punk.
Missy first took notice of Brutus when her mother-in-law lent her a Trimfit to wear, and since then Missy has been working on a strong collection of her own. Her favourite way to wear a Brutus is with shined shoes and a dark denim jacket.
To Missy, Brutus means 'good quality, reasonable price and a brand that cares about the people who wear it.'
