Ben Sherman clothing: celebrate 60s style

Clothing fromBen Sherman has come a long way since it sprung out of the mod movement. The company launched in 1963, producing striking, brightly coloured shirts that aligned well with the irreverent mood of the swinging 60s. After a boom in popularity, the Brighton-born label opened up its first shop on London's Carnaby Street. Decades later, Ben Sherman clothes are still menswear winners today. Look out for brand hallmarks like its 'target' logo T-shirts and smart casual checked shirts.

Ways to wear your Ben Sherman clothing

Patterned button-up shirts are one of the standout designs in our edit of clothing from Ben Sherman. They make ideal hero pieces for your wardrobe as they can work in different contexts, depending on how you style them. Nod to the brand's links to the mod subculture (think skinny silhouettes and subdued shades, interspersed with bright pops of colour) by pairing your shirt with denim clothing. Slim-fitting jeans work well with Chelsea boots for a sharp finish from head to toe. On more laid-back days, try wearing a Ben Sherman printed T-shirt with cotton trousers like chinos and easygoing plimsolls. A well-worn leather or denim jacket layered over the top will give your outfit some of the label's youthful spirit.
