It all started in Manchester in the late 80s, a time of thriving youth subculture
Skateboarding and BMXing were on the rise and the ‘Madchester’ music scene was about to take the world by storm.
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.
This relaunch isn’t a comeback statement but an innovation statement, redefining original design and personality of the UK’s first authentic streetwear brand.
We will be ever present at music festivals, clubs and events worldwide and live within content creators on video sharing and streaming platforms, bringing the dynamic Bench energy to our people in their moments.
Featured on your favourite celebs and influencers + exciting new technology to make Bench more accessible to like-minded people around the world. our brand is about to grow up with youth still at its very heart.
Don’t Call This a Comeback.
