Good clothes, done right

In which G.M. Norton recommends a maker of affordable British-made clothes.

I love to wear locally-made products. Despite the embarrassment of the recent political shenanigans, I’m proud to be British and I like to support British businesses. Community Clothing is one such enterprise.

I first alerted to Community Clothing during their Kickstarter campaign a few years ago, thanks to my chum Mike. Since then, they’ve expanded their range offering a very decent range of staple items such as jackets, trousers, knitwear, coats and socks for both ladies and gentlemen.

The brainchild of Patrick Grant, who was once awarded the honour of style icon status on this very periodical, they work with a range of British factories, making use of their quiet spells to make Community Clothing wares.

Last year, I finally became a customer after purchasing a Breton top and chambray shirt. I was very impressed.

They’ve now released some chinos that seem to quite high-waisted. I’d really like to order them, but I’m resisting as I’ve been trying to lose some weight (and was succeeding until a foot injury).

Anyway, do take a look at their clothes. In the age where you can order all kinds of rubbish an app on your phone, it’s comforting to be able to find well-made, simple clothing at a fair price. And what better than to support skilled workers living in Britain.
