Established in San Francisco in 1935, Ben Davis is an American workwear company famous for the quality and durability of its products. Originally inspired by Ben’s grandfather, the tailor who pioneered the use of reinforced copper rivets in denim for Levi Strauss, Ben Davis continues to produce a range of high quality clothing that's a favourite with fans around the world.
From the beginning, Ben Davis realised the value of slogans and logos to communicate the core values of the brand. The smiling gorilla logo symbolises the strength of the products and has been in constant use since the beginning. The slogan gradually evolved into "Plenty Tough" providing customers with reassurance about the reliability of well-made workwear. The brand is known for its durable twill fabric and seams reinforced by double rows of stitching.
Ben Davis is still a family-run business with Ben's son, Frank, in charge. Under his guidance, the collection has been expanded from the traditional workwear items to include a range of Ben Davis t-shirts, baseball caps, beanies and more.
The brand has long been a favourite with those who need tough and reliable garments for work, and the quality of the products has seen musicians and rappers such as Ice Cube and Dr. Dre singing the praises of Ben Davis clothing in recent years. Like other US brands with roots in workwear, such as Carhartt WIP, Ben Davis has successfully crossed over into streetwear thanks to it’s authentic heritage, style and comfort.
The brand continues to be inspired by the original ethos of manufacturing high-quality workwear that performs well in the toughest of conditions. Choosing comfortable, reliable clothing with classically simple styling is easy with Ben Davis. Even if you're not working in heavy duty industries, the collection of heritage influenced shirts, hoodies and sweatshirts are perfect for any lifestyle.
