Since the 1960’s iconic, British fashion brand Ben Sherman has fostered a unique relationship with up and coming, unsigned artists. Drawing attention to those musicians whose style fits with the Ben Sherman philosophy, supporting them and growing with them from their humble beginnings to the higher roads of success.
The brand has had an intrinsic and deep relationship since its roots with bands including The Clash, New Order, Pulp, The Kinks, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Paul McCartney, Style Council, Morrissey and many more.
