Ben Sherman is probably one of the best examples of a menswear brand that I would love to be able to own pieces from. The iconic lifestyle brand, laced with a rich heritage and unique appeal offers timeless pieces with a classic style, something that I find many womenswear brands are unable to provide to the same degree.
It therefore seems fitting to kick off Out From the Woods with a post about Ben’s new collection to mark its 50th year in style. The Duke Street Foundry capsule collection of just seven pieces, celebrates the birth of the brand, named after the Brighton Street where Ben Sherman’s first store stood in 1963.
The collection consists of garments that are reminiscent or what would have been seen on the racks in the beginning, compromising of the iconic items that the brand is best known for. Key items in the collection include the three finger button-down shirt (£125), Harrington jacket (£175), fishtail parka (£295), and a polo shirt available in both long (£85) and short sleeve (£75) versions.
The price points may be a little higher than their core collection, but you are sure to be making a wise investment with pieces that will never lose their appeal. Even better still (if you need more reasons to make a purchase) every piece is proudly made in England.
