_-QKrcKhRWuIcOhzLkqtR7ESCnvYvuX-V4XqXLHVb18I’m a big Ben Sherman fan.

I have been, since i picked up my first Ben Sherman golfer in NY about 7 years ago. At the time I didnt really know the brand, but I remember loving the retro modern vibe it had.

So it comes as no surprise to find out the brand is celebrating it’s 50th birthday, after all it’s been around long enough to inspire everything from the Teddy boys to the skinhead fashion movement and everything in-between.

That’s exactly what you’ll find in the book released in conjunction with the brands anniversary, “50 years of british style culture” . It celebrates a time when fashion was born out of music, politics and culture rather than what was found in our fathers wardrobes.

Along with the launch of the book is a traveling exhibition of some of the pictures and stories featured within it. What’s even cooler is that for the month of May, this exhibition is being held at Wolves in Johannesburg.

For those of you who have never been to Wolves, you really should of, its only the coolest bar/coffee shop/exhibition space/live music venue around. They also have great cake. Speaking of which…I have cake and 2 cups of coffee for one reader to enjoy together with the exhibition.

Just drop me a comment below and i’ll pick the most hungry. You can also tweet me anything with #LetMeEatCake. Just make sure you’re in JHB over the next 2 weeks will ya.

Okay. Stay Fancy.
