As the Trad forum has a long tradition of quibbling over the little differences, this might be a good fit. :)

I'm not sure if these were different phases of production or if it depends on which factory the mask was made in, but I noticed there are two separate styles of Brooks masks:
  • one with rounded corners
  • one with square corners
Does anyone have any preference for one over the other?

After a few months of use, I'm firmly in the rounded-corner camp. They do run a bit large (I think they were originally meant for putting over an N95 mask), but they can be pinned without much trouble. Plain white seems to have been the right choice as well, as once the novelty of masks wear off, you don't really want something too eye-catching, and it makes it easier to ensure that they are clean.

Make my mask one with rounded corners and does not fog my eyeglasses. I've achieved my first preference, but have been decidedly unsuccessful in finding a mask that meets my second criteria. :(

Eagle, the BB masks DO NOT fog up my glasses! https://www.brooksbrothers.com/Face...var_MU00250_Color=MISC&contentpos=1&cgid=0109

This is the only mask I've found that works for me. There is a bit of technique involved in glasses placement, but once I figured it out it's now a very easy process.

The main downside of these masks is that after a few months of wear and washes, they are pilling a bit and look a little tired for lack of a better word.

Thank you. I will give them a try!
