Retro Style, Cubed

Being of small stature, shopping for clothes which fit well has always been challenging for me. Once I find a brand that fits, I become loyal for life.

Luckily, English label Ben Sherman, has never let me down. Beyond fitting ideally, their clothes are based on the best elements of London style — from 1960s Carnaby Street to Punk — and are always incredibly well-made.

After just buying a shirt to wear for a friend’s wedding, I was surprised to find at the bottom of the bag… a Rubik’s Cube.

I’m pretty sure that the Rubik’s Cube are not a classic icon — or even British, but who am I to argue with “free?”

This was no ordinary cube. Each side is emblazoned with distinctive British icons including The Union Jack, an English Bulldog, a double-decker bus. Brill!
