Eco Suits - Launching September 2019

What makes a great outfit feel even better? One that helps you do your bit for the environment.

Introducing the eco collection. Crafted from earth-friendly fabrics like recycled PET polyester and responsibly sourced cotton with trims that have been consciously chosen for their low impact on the environment.

From lining to thread to buttons to packaging, we’ve selected every element either because it is recycled or because it’s made sustainably (and sometimes it’s both).

All that, and the eco collection doesn’t compromise on quality. Same great handles, same great cuts, less plastic in landfill. In small, limited-edition runs that mean we can move towards a more sustainable future while avoiding unnecessary waste.

Plastic pollution is one of our world’s greatest threats.

Every second, a double-decker busload of plastic waste is dumped or burned in developing countries. It takes decades, if not centuries, to break down and releases harmful toxins as it does. Mismanaged waste injures and kills our wildlife and spreads disease among the communities where it’s dumped or left uncollected.

PLASTIC POLLUTION IS ONE OF OUR WORLD’S GREATEST THREATS

The UN Environment Programme estimates that more than 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been produced since the 1950s and about 60% it has ended up in landfill or a natural environment.

Our answer?

Work with our suppliers to find plastic alternatives and recycle what’s already in circulation.

Cloth

Looks great, does better

Up to 45 plastic bottles are recycled to make the eco suit’s cloth, diverting them from landfill and our oceans. Its recycled polyester fibres are certified to not emit harmful chemicals and, importantly, it feels as good to wear as your regular suit (and maybe even better with the feel-good factor). Not only that, it's lined with fabric that’s a minimum of 99% post-consumer recycled polyester too.

Eco Suits

Inners

Good on the inside

There’s a lot more to a suit than its cloth. That’s why we’ve selected suppliers that are known for sustainable manufacturing to make our eco suit’s inners – from recycled polyester shoulder pads to canvas, sleeve head roll and chest foam that are REACH-compliant (the EU regulation that governs the impact of chemicals on the environment).

Eco Suits

Details

Details matter – truly

Every detail of our eco suit has been consciously chosen for its low impact on the environment. The thread is made from 100% recycled polyester yarns. Corozo nut buttons are a 100% natural material that’s durable, renewable and biodegradable. Even the pocketing fabric is OEKO-TEX® certified and made using less chemicals and less water.

Eco Suits

Packaging

Kinder to the planet

We’ve used recycled materials wherever possible and as much as possible, from 100% recycled polyester-satin inner labels to recycled paper swing tickets and recyclable polybags.

As for suit bags, it turns out the most sustainable suit bag is actually one that lasts, so we made ours from polypropylene, an eco-friendly material that’s durable and breathable but also free from toxic dye and will biodegrade when you’re finished with it – keeping it out of landfill.

Eco Shirt

Make an everyday choice a smarter one with the eco shirt.

Choose smooth pure cotton that’s responsibly sourced to protect the environment as well as the people who produce it with our Moss 1851 eco shirt. Or do your bit to divert plastic bottles from landfill with the Moss London eco shirt that blends the same responsibly sourced cotton with recycled PET polyester from REPREVE®, the world’s leading maker of recycled fibre.

Just like the eco suit, both eco shirts’ trims have been consciously chosen for their low impact on the environment. We’ve used cotton interlining made without insecticides and pesticides, we’ve stitched them with 100% post-consumer recycled PET thread that’s OKEO-Tex certified and we’ve finished them with 95% recycled polyester buttons.

We’ve also reduced or replaced the amount of plastic packaging a standard shirt uses: the neck inserts are now made from recycled card, while the polybag, collar bones and the few plastic clips we’ve kept are all fully recyclable – and in case any are thrown away, they’re made to biodegrade quickly and without releasing harmful chemicals.
