What began as a small menswear brand specialising in skate and BMX culture back in 1989, has blossomed into a global fashion brand focussing on producing stylish, functional clothing fit for all-day wear. Despite this transformation in specialisms, Bench has sustained a unique positioning in the market and gone onto create various iconic items including the hoody, whilst introducing womenswear and kids collections into its fold. Amongst the many hallmarks of a Bench product are comfort, timelessness and an ability to be worn in virtually any terrain due to the various innovative features inherent in each of their designs. The Bench brand DNA will always remain to provide wearers with clothing equipped to deal with a 24-hour lifestyle. The core characteristics of its contemporary product range are Life and Performance.
