I have to give the Garnet Hill catalog props — it has remarkable well-written descriptions (though I’m not sure every item of clothing is as “exceptional” as it claims). But I did find one thing to pick on. Despite the fact that it’s now a well-known term, “best seller” remains two words, not one. So the noun is “best seller,” and accordingly the adjective is hyphenated as “best-selling.” Webster’s also offers that that state of being a best seller is “best-sellerdom” but that looks and sounds a bit convoluted to me. I’d probably rephrase a sentence rather than use it.
