The Ben Sherman AW13 collection looks way better close up and this was evidenced during its recent AW13 press day held at it's Carnaby Street Store by it's rep Sane PR. The AW13 collection is influenced by the 1950's both in prints and cuts. The beautiful motif prints represent pitmen and mining communities of Mid-century Britain.
