Everything from sustainable tees, shirts, trousers to lovely button-downs.

Up until a few years ago, there were not as many great sustainable fashion brands for men out there. However today, there’s plenty of ethical menswear brands that have made life easier by offering budget-friendly and stylish clothing. Including basic tees, sustainable trousers, and, of course, plenty of really lovely button-downs to enhance your eco-conscious wardrobe.

It’s time to put your doubts aside and enjoy some amazing fair trade men’s clothing in timeless styles, that are well worth the investment for the conscious gentleman you know.

2. Prana

What’s Best? Jackets, Shirts

Prana formed their own workshop dedicated solely to revitalizing pre-worn garments, preventing them from ending up in landfills by giving them a fresh start. Noice! 

They also promote sustainable raw materials such as hemp & organic cotton, function out of fair-trade factories, and eliminate plastic in packaging; their Social and Environmental categories are proof of this!

Their men’s Baadwin Bomber Jacket is ultra-warm addition to a conscious gentleman’s wardrobe.
