Practical, stylish, urban, modern.  Words that pop into your mind when looking at the Ben Sherman fall and winter offerings.  In a sea of plaid shirts, this company has been able to keep it fresh by giving the consumer different options in color combinations  ( burnt orange, pale pine, camel, faded blue) as well as traditional tartans (red, blue, white, charcoal, brown).  Sweaters with shawl collars, v-necks, crew necks and cardigans in thick wool and sumptuous merino that beg for a crisp fall day.

During CMJ in New York, we had the unique opportunity to preview Ben Sherman’s new Plectrum collection at a private event hosted by The FADER.

What we witnessed were coats and jackets that will be perfect for a day of play, stylish at the office or a night out.   With traditional wool and down filled plus an interesting take on the military jacket in a brackish-green-patina-waxed-cotton that will no doubt keep you toasty & warm.  When it comes to shoes, there are options for whatever your heart’s desire.   Brogues with a broken-in-wrinkled-leather look, herringbone cap toed, suede desert boots and on trend leather ankle boots you will surely love for years to come.  If you have the opportunity, pop into one of the many locations world wide, or you can find them in your better department stores.
