Ben Sherman impresses with the brand’s newly launched luxury line, Plectrum, inspired by English heritage tailoring and modeled after classic layers of old-fashioned wool sweaters and outerwear. We endorse the militaryinspired pieces, like this boiled wool coat. And we are not the only ones: Old City’s Lost + Found does a bustling business with the brand. “Ben Sherman embodies classic tailoring with a quirky British edge,” says co-owner Sandy Martin.
We go behind the scenes with the latest face of Guess, and newly minted star of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue.
