Ben Sherman Modern Classics Spring/Summer 2011 Outerwear

Ben Sherman Modern Classics Spring/Summer 2011 Outerwear

Ben Sherman Modern Classics division has been doing well since its initial launch just last year and with good reason. The product’s been well-designed and is extremely wearable. The collection’s dubbed “Modern Classics” for a reason as the pieces are timeless staples that will and should be worn for years to come.

The summer outerwear from the collection is looking great, with a blazer that’s crafted from selvedge cotton and is half chambray-lined and fitted with elbow patches and flapped pockets. There’s a matching Waistcoat added to the mix that’s just appealing. Both pieces are fitted with some fine details such as wooden button closures and are cut slimmer than your usual Ben Sherman product.
