Ben Sherman founded his namesake brand almost sixty years ago when he reinvented the shirt as an iconic fashion statement for men in 1963. Sherman decided to revolutionize the shirt design, which had previously been worn only as a functional uniform to determine the type of job you held. People said he was crazy to design men's shirts in this way; who would want men's shirts in contemporary patterns, in bright and bold colour palettes, and in an array of fabrications? Nowadays, the question is who could envision the shirt any other way?
We still have the tried and true designs of the House Check (which lines our Harrington jackets) and short sleeve gingham button downs. A range of casual Oxford shirts and signature polos are now made in GOTS certified organic cotton, sourced from green supply chains to support a sustainable clothing industry.
