Ben Sherman Umbrella Shirt
When it comes to a shirt for the coming British autumn and winter months, none are as fitting as this Ben Sherman Umbrella Print Twill shirt. It features an umbrella print that symbolises the British winter perfectly. It also fits perfectly, being from the Plectrum line of Ben Sherman clothing, combining classic styles and colours with contemporary fits and details. The attention to detail is what distinguishes it from shirts found on the high street. Details such as the arrow placket, fabric buttons and rounded front really make you feel you're wearing something different. The hidden print of a man holding one of the umbrellas was a nice little surprise I found long after I bought the shirt, along with the metal plectrum on the side seam.
The shirt can be worn casually, as I have done here with black skinny jeans and a pair of punchy Puma TX-3 trainers along with my trusty Wayfarers, or with a nice floral tie or bow tie for a more quirky and smarter look for a formal suit and tie event. I've always been more of a high street shopper, but since I bought my first Ben Sherman shirt a few years ago, I've been converted, their shirts are high in style and quality, plus it feels awesome to be supporting a British label.
