"If you’re not familiar with Ben Silver, suffice it to say that they’re undoubtedly one of the best purveyors of classic menswear on this side of the pond...Unlike a lot of shops who stock a house-label as a lower-price (and lower-quality) alternative to the 'real labels,' Ben Silver gets all their garments from the highest quality manufacturers in the world. Nothing from them is less than top-drawer." Read more...
"Repp stripe ties are arguably the most classic neckwear of all...Reading through the Ben Silver catalog is like reading a beautifully-illustrated history of Britain’s best." Read more...
"Walking into the store is like walking into a gentleman's library. Located on historical King Street, the store's antiques and dark furnishings are adorned with merchandise, begging you to open drawers, look through bookshelves and wander around in exploration." Read more...
"We feel that too often people settle for silver or gold cufflinks that make you look like every other guy in the boardroom. Ben Silver’s Hand Enamel Coin Cufflinks are entirely different than the pack. They’re absolutely stunning and work perfectly with a french cuff shirt. These guys have soul." Read more...

a must." Read more...
"Ben Silver just sent out a wonderful catalog for their large selection of regimental ties. Not only are they the only retailer that does that sort of thing anymore, they’re also one of the few companies in the United States that sell true regimentals where the stripes go down in the direction from the left shoulder down to the right across the heart."

Wondering why some guys have the look nailed and others
fall short? This shop is the real deal for fine quality, traditional
men’s wear. Not to mention, the most fabulous collection of
Repp Striped Neckwear to be found anywhere.

Best ties – period. Timeless.

In my opinion, the Ben Silver Catalog is the best traditional
menswear catalog in the USA. The quality of every product I’ve
ever bought — and I’ve been a customer for years — has been
of the highest standard, the taste level accords with my own
trad-with-a-bit-of-flair approach to clothes, and the service is
first rate…And of course they have the largest collection of
British silk regimental, club, and university ties to be found,
an unending joy for the true Anglophile.

Your catalogs filled with such beautiful
clothing [are] always enjoyed.

Thank you for your latest catalog of authentic British striped ties.
I always enjoy reading the brief regimental, college and university
histories you include.

One of my favorite stores in the world!

May I express my considerable appreciation for your handsome clothing catalog and the amazing talent of the person who co-ordinates the color and texture of the ensembles found on your pages? Genius!

I've been buying ties from Ben Silver since they
started selling ties. I love their selection and as they
are in a catalog, I can put the pictures next to my jackets
to get a sense of how they will work. As their club ties
and striped ties never go out of fashion and as they
last forever, they are perfect for me.

I believe this to be one of the best men's stores in the country.
The owner Bob Prenner is one of the best dressed gentlemen I have
ever come across. There is a marriage of European, British and
American style that is nothing short of perfection. The selections
from the eye wear, to the sport coats down to the last detail of
blending a pocket square with a necktie is nothing short of
impeccable. This is the American go to destination for the
sartorial resplendent. One of my all time favorites!!
