Here Are Some Options for Sustainable Apparel for Men

Here Are Some Options for Sustainable Apparel for Men

When it comes to sustainable fashion, womenswear dominates the market. But the tide is slowly turning with an increasing amount of new, ethical menswear labels emerging across the globe. With recent reports proving that Uyghur Muslims in China are operating under forced labour for many high street labels, and fast fashion behemoths coming under increasing pressure to get their s**t together, it can be tricky to know where to turn to stay in style and sustainable.

So we’ve rounded up a few (16, to be precise) of our favourite sustainable fashion brands for men that will keep you decked out and looking dapper in clothes you’ll actually want to wear. Lads, it’s time to fix up, look sharp.

One place to find sustainable clothing for men is MANGO Man.

  • T-Shirt

The garments labelled as Committed are products that have been produced using sustainable fibers or processes, reducing their environmental impact. Mango’s goal is to support the implementation of practices more committed to the environment, and therefore increase the number of sustainable garments in the collection.

Organic t-shirts may be one of the first things that come to mind when you think of the eco-fashion movement.
