In the southern hemisphere, warmer weather is just around the corner, so we went on the hunt for the best conscious clothing brands selling men’s spring fashion worth adding to your closet. Let’s take a look.

The menswear brands we’re loving this season

Spring is a fun season for fashion, and for our menswear-loving readers, we decided it was high time to do a little digging and find the best brands blooming with warmer-weather staples and statement pieces to spruce up your spring attire.

Plant puns aside, if you’re looking to spring clean your wardrobe before fitting it out with fresh pieces this season, 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 are the TENCEL™ track pants from CasaGIN (Italy), Outerknown’s (US) tie-dye sweatshirt, and the recycled wood watch from Better World Fashion (Denmark). Let’s dive in and discover the best men’s spring 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 spring 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.
