Bringing a touch of London’s Carnaby Street to Soho, Ben Sherman, the eponymous streetwear brand born of the original swinging-’60s mod god, has dropped its first U.S. flagship. As a salute to its English roots, the store is embellished with mannequins and an antique settee covered in a Union Jack pattern. But this being America, the land of bigger is better, the 5,300-square-foot space is appropriately hangarlike—all the better to house the ample stash of guys’ denim and weekend wear, such as a striped nylon Windbreaker ($130). A small nook in the back stocks gear for dapper Dans, including slim-fit button-downs ($85), graphic neckties and voguish blazers, all of which can be custom-fit on site (an additional $25, with a 72-hour turnaround) through the shop’s in-house tailoring service.
