Ben Sherman was a legend in his own right. A man described as "always embracing the new and the different"—someone constantly searching for the best of things. He disliked regularity, preferring to search out things that were perceived as unavailable to him. He was a passionate businessman with an artist’s soul.
Now having existed for five decades, the Ben Sherman shirt and brand have been adopted by almost every youth culture or style movement of the last 50 years, from the mods to two-tone and ska to Brit pop—and it's still worn today by the bands and style leaders of the current decade.
