More and more consumers are becoming savvy to the massively detrimental impact the fashion industry at large has on the environment which is why more and more of us are actively seeking out brands with an eco-friendly ethos. This brings us nicely onto Tact & Stone, a US menswear brand that aims to do things differently. They offer 100% Organic, Natural, & Recycled materials, 100% Ethical production and 100% satisfaction guaranteed. What’s not to like?
Tact & Stone are the brainchild of Landon Nash who isn’t of a fashion background (he was working in San Francisco real estate prior to launching the brand) and he saw just how wasteful and damaging conventional fashion manufacturing methods were and set about remedying this issue. And, with that, Tact & Stone was born and the rest, as they say, is history.
Boasting all the menswear essentials you’ll need for your spring and summer wardrobe, we’re big fans of both the apparel and objectives of Tact & Stone and you can check out our pick of some of the best essentials below:
