Slow It Down: Conscious Fashion Pieces for Men

Conscious choices with style can protect the environment and revive dwindling crafts.

By Samantha Coles

One of the joys of making conscious fashion choices with style is that you can be reviving a dwindling craft with your purchase; take Hiut Denim, for example. The brand is based in a small, picturesque spot in Wales where jean-making took place for 40 years, until production was stopped and outsourced to cheaper alternatives. Now, Huit exports its high-end, handmade jeans globally and has created new employment for those who had previously worked in the old factory.

Looking for something smarter? A knockout suit can last a lifetime — Kiton’s cashmere checked single-breasted suit makes a statement and can be mixed up with separates for a more laid-back look. Cashmere itself is a biodegradable, renewable fiber that can last for decades; Rifo takes it a step further by using upcycled cashmere in its Federico scarf.
