I regularly get emails from male Moral Fibres readers asking about men’s ethical clothing companies.
Men’s ethical clothing can be a little trickier to track down than their female counterparts, but there are still lots of great shops and companies out there catering to the ethical man. To make life as easy as possible for you I’ve put together some of my favourite options on men’s ethical clothing companies, and other outlets where you can buy men’s ethical clothing.
This list will be ever-evolving as I find more shops, so make sure you bookmark this post or add it to Pinterest and revisit it on a semi-regular basis!
To help support running costs of the blog any links marked with a * after them are affiliate links. These don’t affect the price you pay for items or your consumer rights, such as your right to return items – it just means I get a very tiny percentage of the sale price if you buy anything via the link, which helps cover my web hosting and things like that.
Men’s Ethical Clothing Companies
I’ve broadly categorised the shops by price range to make life easy:
Budget – £
Beyond Retro – If you’re into vintage clothing and one-off vintage pieces then Beyond Retro say they have biggest range of men’s vintage fashion in the UK, with clothes from the 50s to the 90s.
eBay* – eBay has changed in recent years, but it is still possible to shop for secondhand clothes on a tight budget. Filtering for secondhand clothing only and setting a maximum budget for each item are great tips for shopping ethically on a budget. You can also find some other useful tips on my post on eBay shopping tips.
