Searching in magazines and on the web for the new thing in men’s fashion, you’re bound to see writers and designers and bloggers all telling you that leather boots, bags, jackets, watches, and other accessories are the only way to show your masculine style and be unmistakenly fashionable, but that’s not at all true. Don’t let others fool you, there are an abundance of eco friendly options to look just as hot and feel just as proud and confident in!
Not about the leather
Not every aspect of fashion has to do with skinning animals, in fact some of the hottest trends right now have nothing to do with going against the environment. Double breasted blazers, floral, watercolor, polka dots, bright and bold colored shoes, and mirrored glasses are all on the hot list for 2014!
And so far as all the heat on hide goes, you can always go classic and replace the leather with timeless suede or even give it your own spin and get a cotton, bamboo, or recycled plastic/tire bag!
Brands to look for
Here’s some eco-friendly brands that are becoming more and more popular these days :
- Three Leaves Ethical Menswear
- Alchemy Goods
- Arbor Collective
- Brave Gentlemen
- Continental Clothing
- General Knot
- Knowledge Cotton Apparel
- Nudie Jeans
If you’re into jewelry, you will be happy to learn that there’s some options there too. Konifer Watch, a canadian company specialized in wooden watches, is slowly but steadily gaining ground in the USA.
These few are only a short list of many great companies that sell handsome, durable clothing and accessories that are entirely vegan. You can buy absolutely anything vegan and have it be just as fashionable and stylish. Not everything has to be harmful to nature. Sometimes the eco friendly counter product is even cheaper than the “normal” one that you see in magazines, on tv, on the blogosphere, and on the internet. It’s not difficult at all to find these companies, it’s just a matter of choosing them over the others.
There’s a whole world out there with vegan based and inspired apparel! Now’s the time to take the path towards a brighter and more fashionable eco friendly world! Don’t stand on the sidelines in animal furs and skins, ignorant to all the vegan options that can make you just as chic but way more environmentally friendly. It is definitely possible to be environmentally friendly and fashionable at the same time!
