surprisingly, Ben Sherman's up'd their game in the last year. For a long time it was all Am-Jack wear marketed with a mod slant (???) but now they have a "Signature" line which is repro's of the classic Ben Shermans (like the buttondowns)
Their best recent era was back in 2001 when they had their "vintage" line which is basically what the new "Signature" line is.

Also 100% cotton (US ones are a cotton/poly mix). Usually only available on mod/skinhead sites AFAIK. In the US shirts I wear a small, in the UK shirts I wear med
