Bench was at the very heart of this energetic, exciting time, taking its inspiration from the people around it to make relevant clothing built for the urban world they lived in.

This generation was the first to want to ‘large’ their weekend and paved the way for mainstream UK subculture.

Bench is still at the very heart of that volatile energy.

These strong roots and energy now resonate globally, with a presence in over 30 countries across the globe. From our humble beginnings to our global status, we’ve stayed relevant and true by constantly striving to create innovative and fashionable product inspired by real people and the real lives they lead.

With music as the beat and street culture as the rhythm of everything we do, we’ve stayed influential and true, inspired by real people who keep it surreal, making pieces that stand out against grey concrete backdrops and represent the progressive, creative underbelly of the city.
