Men’s Fall Fashion, Done Sustainably

Fall is just around the corner in the northern hemisphere, so we went on the hunt for the best conscious clothing brands selling men’s fall fashion worth adding to your closet. Let’s take a look.

The menswear brands we’re loving this fall

It’s that time of the year again: the weather is slowly cooling down, the sun is setting earlier than usual, and the leaves are turning yellow. Fall is just around the corner.

You might be sad summer is over, so here’s some good news: fall is a great season for fashion. Thanks to the layering technique, you can get more creative with your outfits, elevating your outfits by simply switching out a couple of items, and staying warm and cosy at the same time. Put away the shorts, the short sleeve shirts, and the sunglasses—it’s time to start digging out the jumpers, coats, and scarves.

If you’re in the process of switching your wardrobe after the summer holidays, make sure you’re responsibly donating, upcycling, mending, altering, or reselling those items you no longer need. And while we know the most sustainable way to add a new-to-you feel to your existing collection is to shop second hand, sometimes you do have to turn to new—that’s where these better brands come in.

A few highlights for us this fall season are the wool polo sweater from ASKET (Sweden), Dr Marten’s boots alternatives from Good Guys (France) and of course, Wuxly’s (Canada) rain jacket. Let’s dive in and discover the best men’s fall fashion by brands considering people, the planet, and animals in their production.

A note on degendering fashion

While this article may be addressing keywords on men’s fall fashion, here’s the simple truth: clothes don’t have any gender. It sometimes seems silly how the industry ascribes gender to inanimate garments like t-shirts and socks. We believe people of all genders should be able to express themselves however they want, regardless of the binary marketing. So when you use our directory to search for brands, we automatically deliver search results without any consideration to gender. If you still want to find products labelled as menswear or womenswear, you can use our filters.
