Make like the Bostonians of the 1770s and vigorously attack some English imports by snatching up Bench., a UK sports-meets-streetwear label that's debuting Stateside for the first time this Fall, has just arrived in The South End, and divides itself into three sub-collections dubbed "alternative", "electro", and "underground", though that last one probably only comes in size "fantasy novel dwarf".
To ensure you're properly layered, get thee:
Tees: There's "Leader" with a DJ on the mixing board, "Hot Crowd" showcasing a sexy female silhouette moving seductively to the beat, and "We Love Beats" with two turntables forming a heart, so now all that music needs is a soul.
Shirts/Hoodies: Cop a grey marl v-neck knit, a red plaid zip-up hoodie, or a short-sleeve, blue button-up work shirt with a hood -- perfect if your work is robbing banks, like everyone else in Charlestown, according to Don Draper.
Outerwear: There are also sporty jackets (all of which, for some reason, pimp names that begin with G) like the heavy-duty black marl Govner puffy coat, the nylon Guilty track jacket w/ contrasting panels and a teal zipper, and a slick grey cotton job w/ a zip-fastening hood called the Genghis, meaning this time, there will be a con to attacking the English.
