Christopher Raeburn

Rated: Good

Wool Bomber in Yellow – Ships internationally

British streetwear brand Christopher Raeburn makes an art out of upcycling. This is a fashion-forward brand for men and women that creates sharp looks from military surplus, with materials that include 1950s Airforce silk maps, and Danish military wool blankets.  It also offers free repairs so you can take care of your precious investment pieces.

GRAMMAR

Rated: Great

Conjunction Shirt – Ships to United States

On the face of it, this brand new label only sells one thing - white shirts.  But look at the detail and you see a full range of clever tailoring, creative cuts and details that mean there’s a shape and style to suit everyone.  All Grammar’s shirts are made from ethically sourced 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and produced in small batches in New York city.

As always there are some brands that you’ve searched for that don’t meet your expectations when it comes to keeping planet, people and animals safe. These are the brands we rate Not Good Enough.

  • The White Company
  • Amazon
