Brown and Church Important Neckwear was established in 1976 by Sam Brown and Bill Church as a classic neckwear collection for the better men’s specialty store.  Our connection to the neckwear industry however, dates back much further, and is more diverse.  Our company includes yApre’ Cravats, a collection created by Herbert Bergheim in the late 1930’s that connected with a much more flamboyant customer, and Keys & Lockwood, a classic American neckwear collection established in 1881. Few companies in any industry have the diverse heritage and longevity that we do.  Our heart is in our history, while our minds are focused on the future.
