Brown, Davis & Co.
Brown, Davis & Co. was a wholesaler and manufacturer of mens' clothing in Aldermanbury, London. The company produced shirts, collars, shirtings, and linen goods and in 1871 registered the first patent for a shirt that buttoned all the way down the front--up until this time, shirts were pulled on and off over the head.
