Ben Sherman Boston to open tomw?

As if the first day of vacation couldn't get any better: Word on the street is the Ben Sherman Store at 154 Newbury St. will finally open tomorrow, Oct. 3. Now we just need Merc and Fred Perry and I'll be straight as bait.

Ben Sherman, the ultimate British mod brand famous for its Oxford button-down shirts and Carnaby-style fit, invades Newbury Street in late 2008. The brand of choice for five decades of rock royalty ranging from the The Kinks and The Beatles in the '60s to The Clash in the '70s to the Arctic Monkeys and The Killers today, the Ben Sherman style is revered by stylistas for its focus on tailored classics which includes suits, shirts and shoes.
