Ben Sherman Gingham Shirt

Ben Sherman Gingham Madness Shirt, $86

Anyone who's been in Washington, DC long enough knows that Ian Svenonius from Nation of Ulysses is pretty much one of the most stylish badasses on the planet, and his series Soft Focus can attest to that, but bass guitar player Steve Gamboa also brought it pretty regularly when it came to getting kitted out. He'd also go on to play in Svenonius' other projects like Cupid Car Club and The Make-Up, but we like to remember him in this shot for rocking a gingham shirt well. English punks were quick to adopt the pattern and regularly copped ones made by Ben Sherman. Follow suit as part of your 13-Point Program to a better dressed life.
