Ben Sherman is a British company founded by Arthur Benjamin Sugarman in 1963 as a clothing brand that started its production from fashionable and stylish shirts for men. In this manufacturer's designs the Royal Air Force medallion is featured often. From 2004 to 2015, the brand was owned by Oxford Industries, and in 2015, it was sold to Marquee Brands. Ben Sherman creates casual clothes, including shirts and colorful summer outfits of refined designs, crafted by the talented artisans from high-quality materials. Nowadays, the company makes men's sweaters, suits, shirts, shoes, and also superior accessories, including stylish eyeglasses and sunglasses.
When Ben Sherman launched its brand shirts, this was something new and newer seen in England before, so products got popularity and success. It happened at those times when the first youth culture of Britain was in full swing. New generations of youth understood that clothes can be a sort of indicator of their beliefs and a sign they belong to a particular movement.
The second wave of youth preferred the Italian style, and they were called ''mods'' from the word ''modernism''. These young people embraced shirts created by Ben Sherman for their excellent quality, skim style, unique design, and bright colors.
Since those times, these shirts became a sign of the British youth, making the product very prospective in a new way of breaking the traditions. With its avant-garde style, shirts brought the new ''mod movement'' to England's fashion of the '60s. Shirts became so popular among customers that in 1970, Ben Sherman ordered more than a million yards of various fabrics from American manufacturing. Later, the brand started to create eyewear collections that got the same checked patterns as the shirts have. Stylish glasses with large silhouettes and recognizable logos are perfect for those men who are looking for iconic British style and impeccable quality.
The signature style of the brand, synonymous with British fashion of the 1960's and checked shirts, is running through the eyewear collections. Glasses and sunglasses are made from stainless steel and acetate and feature the "button up" logotype and copied from the famous company's shirts checked patterns. In 2020, Ben Sherman launched the new eco-green glasses collection that includes 12 optical frames and 4 sunglasses made from bio-based acetate and recyclable metal. The shapes of frames are based on military silhouettes, Ivy League Prep, British culture of youth, and iconic styles of the 60s.
