Ben Sherman is well known for its connections with Mod and Skinhead subcultures since the 1960’s. But times change and things move on and that can also be said about this new Ben Sherman collection. Yes, some of the old favourites are there, like the Harrington jacket, slim fitting checked shirts with button down collar and T shirts with the air force style roundels on the chest, but now there’s so much more.
This new, contemporary modernist collection is bang up to date, with stunning over-shirts in heavy tonal check cotton or rich autumnal shades of corduroy. Retro styling is still evident but it’s about as contemporary as it gets. No longer just for the hardened Mods or Skins but as relevant as any other designer menswear collection this season.
This season features The Vamps and their Young Soul Rebels collection, inspired by the Mod and Ska era of the 1970’s, combining formal and casual styles for a modern contemporary look.
