No, guys, this isn’t part of American Apparel’s “dirty girls eat popsicles” series, it’s a taste of Ben Sherman’s new ad campaign. It’s also a sign that Ben Sherman is looking to shed it’s genteel persona and untuck its shirt. The company known for looking sharp and keeping crisp seems to be having an identity/mid-life crisis–just look at the sloppy mess and the blue saliva string. Jesus, what would Paul Weller say?

Forgive the dramatics, but this picture bums me out. It marks the end of an era. I suppose it was bound to happen what with the lack of kids going Mod or Skinhead these days, but still it stings. I blame Emo.

Ah, everything changes: stay gold, Ponyboy Curtis.

See the rest of the pics on Fashionista.
