Brown, Davis & Halse / Brown, Davis & Co.

Brown, Davis & Halse were wholesalers and manufacturers of mens’ clothing in Aldermanbury, London.

At some point Halse left the partnership and the company name became Brown, Davis & Co. The firm 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.
