More information about Final Jeopardy:
Brooks Brothers, headquartered in New York City’s Madison Avenue, was founded in 1818, with its first location at Catherine and Cherry in Manhattan, as H. & D. H. Brooks & Co., by Henry Sands Brooks. His four sons, John, Daniel, Elisha, and Edward inherited the business and renamed it Brooks Brothers in 1850.
The firm claims to have outfitted 40 US Presidents, dating back to James Madison. Of course, this would appear to count Grover Cleveland twice.
