I’ve always loved fashion but finding brands that are actually ethically made and good quality is hard!

I really like that 60’s/90’s look and chic/modern styles.

I know that there are a lot of hemp made and more granola-like fashion brands but it’s just not remotely my style.

Have any recommendations?

There’s a website that rates companies ethics, they also have an app. I like Eileen Fisher personally.

Eileen Fisher is great. I have a lot of their stuff. Admittedly, it is all secondhand. Holds up great though.

You could shop consignment and then you don’t really need to worry

I buy at thrift shops. It keeps clothes out of the landfill and it helps the community.

Known Supply Does this fit your style? I’ve purchased their clothes before. I prefer wool or linen for durability over cotton (their most common fabric), but I do appreciate their company’s mission.

I used to work at a store that had an emphasis on ethical, sustainable brands and Kowtow was like the gold standard. They are GOTS certified and have so much transparency throughout the entire supply chain.

Edited to add website link and a bit more info

You could always try vintage.

You are asking about combining several elements and giving a recommendation and that's not a thing. Reasons for fail:

  1. Price. We have no idea of your budget.
  2. Use case. Are these for use at your job in the smelting plant or as a Les Clefs d'Or Concierge at a five star hotel?
  3. Ethical is not a simple term. Sustainable materials. Sustainable employee wages. Fair Trade. Certified B Corporation. Woman owned business in Djibouti. We have no idea of what your idea of ethical is.

I love finding high quality stuff second hand. Poshmark is my go-to.

It is my understanding that Patagonia grows to great lengths to make sustainable products and pays the workers that make their clothing a living wage. Do your own research, but I’ve been happy with all of my clothing from Patagonia.

I've taken to making clothes for my wife out of paper Trader Joe's bags.

TJ's treats their employees fairly and they maintain a socio-concious presence in our city.

Edit: Sorry you folks don't like ethical clothing. 🤷‍♂️
