In the winter of 2010 Ben Sherman turned a corner. Their cookie cutter mall mod, long stale, was ditched in favor of a more up-to-date heritage look. You couldn't blame them for playing along—following the leader isn't original, but it will help you make money. Since then Ben Sherman has been producing pretty impressive wears that aren't simply catch up paint by trend, assuming you even had them on your radar. You can still buy all their mall mod shit, but you can also buy bangers like this leather sleeve canvas parka. Didn't see that one coming, did you? Seriously, this may be the coolest parka on the entire market AND IT'S MADE BY BEN FUCKING SHERMAN! The prices on Ben Sherman's premium gear is up there with the big dogs, but I'm not kidding when I say that it's remarkable, completing the bizarro universe loop we currently find ourselves in. We're not at the point yet where a Ben Sherman tag is going to impress anyone, not that cool points should be on your menswear grocery list. If you're wearing the leather sleeve canvas parka this winter the first thing people are going to tell you is that your coat is the shit. Then they're going to ask where you got it. Hit them with a quick and dismissive "bitch, don't kill my vibe" and keep it moving.
