British brand Ben Sherman is looking to stage something of a comeback and is actively acquiring the right staff to help them do it:
Part of Ben Sherman‘s rebranding efforts also include the release of new lines, such as the Selfridge’s exclusive Ben Sherman Modern Classic, along with opening new stores in both the United Kingdom and United States.
Ben Sherman, one of Britain’s oldest menswear brands, has poached Burberry merchandising chief Adrian Ward-Rees as part of a makeover for the 48-year-old business.
Mr Ward-Rees joins the firm as commercial director. The brand, famous for its 1960s Mod associations, wants to do a “Burberry” or a “Mini” and reinvent itself as a top global menswear brand.
