This month post is dedicated to social and environmentally friendly menswear brands, since there is still a lack of media coverage when it comes to men´s sustainable fashion, we felt this post was long overdue.
Men are becoming more and more style sensible as well as aware of the correlation of their buying choices and environmental impact, and the way it affects the planet and its people.
Focusing on brands that are dedicated to implement alternatives ways of making business, instead of aiming for maximum profit, even if at the cost of using and exploiting the earth environmental resources, and workers sometimes as young as 5 years, but alternatively working towards making profit while helping in creating a more environmentally friendly and equal society, where we all work together for a greater good.

Brothers we stand
Is a menswear online retail site, launched in 2013 by Jonathan Mitchell. Brothers we stand company principles are focused on promoting ethical brands; only stocking brands which the manufacturing process respect the environment and all the people involved. Alongside with some British and European brands it also has its own in-house collection of organic cotton
t-shirts, produced in a wind-powered factory in India, and sweatshirts made from 100% recycled materials.
As a way to show their commitment in following ethical principles in everything they do as well as serving as an example to motivate other companies to follow their foot steps,
they have come up with a ‘footprint’ tab, which can be found on the product’s description page where customers can find out about exactly where a specific item of clothing they intend to buy came from and how it was made.
