Ben Back With A Bang

Ben Sherman has recently created a capsule range inspired by the great British Outdoorsmen of the 1950s. The Modern Classics range reinvents classic mens pieces including the corduroy trouser, Oxford shirts and the field jacket.

Cinch back, tartan lined tapered chinos with buttons for eyelet braces and a selvedge edge. A neat fit and unique style this reinvention of a classic is well designed and executed.

This is a a cord shirt like no other. From the gusset details (the little triangles that hold the shirt together at the bottom corners, by the hips, to the discreet and delectable overlapped breast pocket finished with wooden buttons.

Toggles, elbow patches and those huge hunting pockets make me fall in love with this jacket ever time my eyes set upon it. The red rust colour gives it a vintage feel for me, which scores it extra brownie points! Other dashing details include the tartan-esque lining, large worn wooden buttons, an asymmetrical breast pocket and partial cord lining! not bad at £250.

Limited edition, only 100 made and packaged in traditional boxes and a letter of authentication, these oxford shirts come in grey and gold also. Definitely keeping an eye out for a low number when I get mine.

This, quite simply is the nicest fair isle knitted jumper on the market. It's luxury 100% lambswool fabric makes wearing this beaut a real joy, I can see this being something I'd look forward to wearing when the cold bites.
