Probably one of the most popular brands to ever come out of Brooklyn “The Brooklyn Circus” teamed up with Schlitz for a night of Heritage Boxing, Style and Entertainment, which debuted in Los Angeles at the legendary Hollywood Athletic Club. Style and aesthetic were paramount to the grand setting of the event at the early Hollywood social landmark that has hosted the escapades of Charlie Chaplin, Lon Chaney and Clark Gable. Staged to take you back to the mid twenties, complete with instructions for the audience to attend dressed in their best 20’s attire. Imagine a room full of men in pin striped trousers, apple jack and 8 panel hats, spectator shoes and suspenders, alongside ladies in swing dresses, pearls and feathered accessories. This Roaring Twenties-themed event began with a cocktail party and 7-piece orchestra, cigar-rolling, boxing card stamping, dancing and oysters. Talk about a good time to be a man; this sounds like a party any guy would love. The heart of the night showcased boxing in its purest form, with four sanctioned bouts – Lightweight, Welterweight, Middleweight and Heavyweight – featuring passionate amateurs vying for city-wide glory and trophies. This event was much more than just a boxing match it was a boxing match that was showcasing a commemorative apparel collection that The Brooklyn Circus was releasing, the Brown Bottle Boxing Club collection. This spectacular event even brought out legendary professional boxer “Sugar” Shane Mosley who wanted to get involved and ended up presenting the Heavyweight trophy after the final bout. The BKc + Schlitz Bouts “Brown Bottle collection” is now available at The Brooklyn Circus NYC & SF, launching online for Black Friday http://www.thebkcircus.com/shop.
