London Fashion Week is off to a chic start, and Ben Sherman’s AW ’17 show is no exception. Sherman’s runway featured well-tailored suits in classic prints and colors, as well as a See Now Buy Now option – meaning his runway show is available for purchase now at BenSherman.com. While the show was fairly safe, you can’t get too upset when the vibes are classic Brit gentleman with youthful, reckless undertones (see: orange and black color-block turtleneck.)
Below, we’ve put together our favorite looks from the runway.

Have you ever read about the Gallagher brothers punching a stewardess in the face, ashing a cigarette on their own tongues, and then leaping out of a moving jet directly into a bed of buxom (and willing) British babes — and thought to yourself, that’s the life for me?>. Well Ben Sherman feels that longing, and they’re looking to help. In teaming with national tourism giant VisitBritain, Mr. Sherman is giving you a chance to see London through the eyes of a Mick or a Keith. They’re promising you the life (or rather, weekend) of a rock icon via “The Great British Getaway” competition.
Your homebase/harem will be the legendary Brown’s Hotel in Mayfair, and Prince Harry will be begging you to tongue down his girlfriend at Proud, a Camden hotspot. A Ben Sherman shopping spree will most likely result in a paparazzi bloodbath, and the public backlash is likely to be thick. Your next record will most likely tank, and you’ll probably fly back home a has-been. All you have to do is enter to win. Contest began October 6 and runs for six weeks.
