Though you might never have heard of Arthur Benjamin Sugarman, you surely recognize Ben Sherman: the name of Sugarman’s iconic mostly-menswear label. Based in the southern seaside city of Brighton, England, Sugarman launched his clothing company in 1963 — the moment when fashion and music converged, and the rocker style was born — with a collection of button-down shirts that quickly caught on with stylish young gents across the UK. Ever since, Ben Sherman has served as the go-to source for well-dressed Anglophiles, post-modern mods, and in-the-know music buffs in Great Britain and beyond. The Ben Sherman Plectrum collection includes immaculately tailored jackets and nylon trench coats, leather lace-up shoes, patterned polo cardigans, floral shirts, and other separates that derive inspiration from the concept of the "debonair Englishman in New York." Sharp silhouettes and a touch of military style make each piece classic and contemporary.
Every man needs a navy blue suit; it's the cornerstone of a grownup wardrobe. Once you have one (and we have plenty in this sale, from Calvin Klein White Label, Joseph Abboud, Tommy Hilfiger and more), there's the matter of how to wear it, and with what? Try a modern ensemble, with vibrant saddle shoes from Florsheim’s collaboration with Duckie Brown and a textured skinny tie from Clapham. Or go old-school, with suspenders from Alexander Olch. While your biggest decision should be your shirting, we’ve made things easy with tons of options to classic French cuffs from Hickey Freeman, to bold stripes from Thomas Pink to white sport shirts from BLK DNM.
Fall is coming! The only silver lining to that cloud — you get to wear a functional, lightweight coat that serves dual purposes (keeping you dry and making you look cool). This sale features a whole slew of coats from top brands whether you're looking for a wind-cheater from Brooks Brothers, a puffer vest from Michael Bastian, or something with a bit of understated street-cred, like a J Lindeberg twill coat.
While you may have looked great in that field jacket this fall, you’ll need something more substantial for the coming winter months. This selection of warm outerwear like wool coats, puffers, quilted jackets, and more, will certainly do the trick no matter what kind of weather you’re protecting yourself from.
