Welcome to our May Blog, this month is a month of celebrations.
The coronation of King Charles III really inspired a cool Britannia look. With red, white and blue dominating and inspiring some classic looks to be worn in a fresh way.
2 iconic brands also have huge milestone anniversaries too. Gabicci Vintage celebrates its 50th birthday and Ben Sherman celebrates it 60th birthday.
Gabicci first introduced in the 1970s, original dressers of London, the rude boys and the Rastas, the British brand connected with a new wave of style seekers with Italian inspiration and a smarter ‘casual’ look. The Specials with a distinct Jamaican vibe from sharp tailored fits to premium fabrics. The original dressers’ look was cool, casual and classic, with button down collar polo shirts and cardigans equipped with a certain Italian aesthetic, a style which is now largely associated with the original dressers of the era as well as a new generation too.
Ben started making shirts for other people. But soon his creative flair took over and he started designing his own shirts. Then in 1963 he was ready to launch the first Ben Sherman shirt.
Built on quality craftsmanship, each Ben Sherman shirt is swarming with subculture with original designs as worn and favoured by the Mods, the Rudeboys and the Skinheads. The Skinhead subculture originally started back in the late 60s. The Windrush generation saw black and white working class youths housed in the brutalist housing estates of the major cities like London & Birmingham come together for a mutual love for reggae music.
