A casual buy no. 14

by

Another button-down long sleeve shirt, this time from Ben Sherman. Nowadays this old Brightonian label (yes folks, the company was started in the place to be) has seen its crown slip from its early skinhead heyday. In fact, with their decidedly dodgy male grooming products and what not, they have diluted this label to the point of naffness (“Up Shirt Creek” bodyspray anyone?)

This is wrong, because a quick look on their official site shows ben Sherman still make nice, smart menswear. The ubiquity of Fred Perry nowadays, especially when it’s partnered with pumps and hanging-off-the-arse skinny jeans, makes Ben Sherman a nice alternative to all the funboys sporting the famous laurel leaf. It’s definitely worth a butcher’s.
