Gentlemen, pop your (fair trade) collars.
Menswear brands are offering high quality, ethical dress shirts, with great design details of luxe textiles, slender fit, and french seams. Here are two of my favourite brands offering savvy – and sustainable – style for the modern man.
Arthur & Henry (pictured above)
Arthur and Henry sell beautiful men’s shirts in the UK with a vintage sentiment from, “an era when men dressed just that little bit smarter and clothes were made to last.” They use fair trade, GOTS certified, organic cotton, support ethical manufacturing and they pay attention to the details. Their shirts are cut with modern fit and style in mind. I love this one featuring vintage fabric trim in the cuffs. Roll it up for a flash of floral. From £60.00.
Glass House produces high quality shirts in Chicago, offering a slender fit, European styling, sustainability, and American-made credentials. Their designs include textiles like organic gingham and cotton, limited edition dead stock fabric (end of roll) and signature corozo nut buttons, like the ones on the Blue & Camel Organic Gingham shirt below. Glass House fulfills their “…goal to fuse style, sophistication, and sustainability.” From $178.00.
