Ben for Ben Sherman

Spending Christmas back at the family home this year was great. Admittedly the waistband has expanded a little, but so has my wardrobe. I was lucky enough to receive a lovely Ben Sherman trench coat from my co-blogging, co-habiting girlfriend, Katie.

Aside from keeping you warm and dry in what is turning into a fairly brutal winter this year, Ben Sherman have really taken inspiration from Saville Row and produced a coat that is just perfect for layering.

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); = id; p = ‘//’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

I recently met with the CEO of Ben Sherman over a drink or two and as an avid fan of sartorial style, was keen to quiz him on the brand’s change in direction (a good one at that). Far from previous associations of the mods and rockers, this coat could also be the perfect addition to any formal attire with subtle details such as a tartan-backed collar and stiff lapels. The perfect finishing touches.

Being suit-less, I opted to layer the coat with a chequered scarf and a thin, slim fit jumper courtesy of All Saints. Paired with slightly utilitarian denim jeans and camel suede desert boots, this is an outfit worthy to survive even the harshest of British winters.
