mundane with Ben Sherman. In The Last Word, discover the
best style, film and travel tips as they aim to sharpen your
wardrobe and minds. Ben Sherman was a legend in his
own right. A man described as ‘always embracing the new and
the different’; someone constantly searching for the best of
things. He disliked regularity, preferring to search out
things that were perceived as unavailable to him. He was a
passionate businessman with an artist’s soul. Ben
started making shirts for other people. But soon his
creative flair took over and he started designing his own
shirts. Then in 1963 he was ready to launch the first Ben
Sherman shirt. Its basic design was influenced
by the classic American Ivy League shirt but Ben’s design
vision added the back hook, the button on the back of the
collar, but most importantly his feel and passion for
fabric, pattern and color created a unique garment.
Ben Sherman is a British clothing brand selling shirts, sweaters,
suits, outerwear, shoes and accessories predominantly for men. Ben Sherman
designs sometimes feature the Royal Air Force roundel which is often
called the mod target. In its beginnings in the 1960s, the company made
its mark with fashionable short sleeved, button-down collared shirts. The
Ben Sherman brand was owned by Atlanta-based apparel company Oxford
Industries from 2004 to 2015. In 2015 Ben Sherman was sold to Marquee
Brands, controlled by the American private equity firm Neuberger Berman.
Marquee Brands licensed the UK operations of Ben Sherman, just six months
after buying the brand, to BMB Clothing Limited, a Leeds-based company
whose business includes Jeff Banks and Suit Direct stores.
Now having existed for 5 decades the Ben Sherman shirt and brand have
been adopted by almost every youth culture or style movement of the last 5
decades, from the mods , to 2 tone and ska, to brit pop and is today still
worn by the current bands and style leaders of the current decade.
The company started with shirts, but now you can find jackets,
trousers, shorts, swimwear, knitwear, and more.
