Read through our picks of top summer festivals and we'll help to keep your festival looks on point while you're there.



July 21-23, 2017

Amidst swaying palm trees, Pacific breezes, and it's stylish LA crowd, if you bagged tickets to FYF this weekend you're in for a real treat and we're not just talking about Missy Elliot and Frank Ocean. Be sure to grab front row views to check out the inimitable gritty vocals of King Krule, the stunning, dreamy, psychedelic sounds of Temples and our favorite mind expanding experimental trip-hop man of the moment Flying Lotus.




August 3-6, 2017

Lollapalooza blows into the Windy City in August, and Chi- town's annual festival has been going strong since '91. This year the line-up promises something for everyone, whether you're a sharply dressed classic man headed to see Jidenna, or reserving your excitement for one of Manchester's favorite sons, Liam Gallagher. Whatever you're into remember to pace yourself through the four day weekend to catch acts across the musical spectrum, such as The XX, London Grammar and Sampha you won't be disappointed.




August 11-13, 2017

San-Francisco holds its own with a spectacular line-up in the glorious setting of the Golden Gate Park.  The festival takes place within a stone's throw of Haight-Ashbury the spiritual home of the Sixties so it seems only fitting to catch iconic mod-fathers The Who, and with Roger Daltrey still belting out the classics it's a must-see show for any true Ben Sherman devotee.  Don't miss out on performances over the weekend from Future Islands, Tribe Called Quest and of course one of the best live acts on the festival circuit this summer, Gorillaz.



September 2-3, 2017

Head to Philly for Made In America, a Jay-Z curated two-day music festival to kick off your Labor Day weekend. We know herding your friends around a festival can need saint-like patience at times.. but your team mission to check out Stormzy for a classic bit of UK grime paired with an ice cold beer and a legendary cheesesteak will be so worth it!
