Ben Sherman Houndstooth
Arthur Bernard Sugarman's legacy is under attack by a misguided campaign to glorify houndstooth and associate it with the brand's pseudo-mod sensibilities. We've been seeing houndstooth in Ben Sherman clothing since the beginning but recent boutique and department store displays are peppered with houndstooth chairs, tabletops, and wallpaper. As if their constant exploitation of Union Jacks and Royal Air Force Roundels weren't clichéd enough.
