What is Sustainable Fashion for Men in Australia?
The sustainable men's clothing market in Australia is a growing industry, with brands like Kenny Franks emerging in recent years to fill the growing demand.
Like women, men are demanding that what they wear minimises its impact on our planet. Brands are listening. For example, Tasi Travels' shirts are made from the trees of pulp (Tencel). This is just one of many eco-friendly materials on the market.
What to Look for When Buying Men’s Sustainable Clothing Brands?
Firstly, it's vital that you first understand what part of your wardrobe that you're looking to update... is it a new jacket? Basic tee? Or shorts for the gym?
Once you know that, then decide what factors are important to you in shopping for ethical men's clothing. Is it the material? Where it's made? If you're new to slow fashion, then it's totally fine to be unsure and open-minded at this stage.
We've got six quick summaries for six leading Australian clothing brands. Learn more now!
1. Kenny Franks
One of the youngest brands on the list, their entire range is made in Fair Trade certified factories using only 100% organic cotton. In other words, they are pretty damn ethical & sustainable!
Specialising in minimalist, Kenny Franks offers an urban & cultured touch to the organic men's clothing market in Australia. This is one of our personal favourites and an emerging brand to keep your eye on.
Unsure about your size? Shop in-store at Myer Melbourne & Sydney.
Dorsu is one of Australia's leading ethical men's clothing brands with wardrobe staples that will be loved for a lifetime.
Everything is produced in-house at their very own factory, thus ensuring that their workers are paid fairly, operate in safe conditions, and a variety of other human rights that we take for granted in Australia.
All of their products are made using remnant cotton from the fashion industry. If it weren't for sustainable fashion brands like Dorsu, this cotton would likely end up in landfill.
Browse their range of tops, shorts, pants and more that are sure to be a staple in your wardrobe! Also available at Myer Melbourne + Sydney.
3. Tasi Travels
Perfect for males who like their men's ethical clothing:
• Australian made
• Using organic materials (Tencel)
• Super stylish
Definitely one of the more stylish options on the list, Tasi Travels offers is the perfect solution if you've caught the travel bug and need some wardrobe updates.
With options for women too, we highly recommend their men's shirts for the most comfortable & breathable fit.
