And now you have your chance to play your part in supporting this creativity and wearing the results with pride and with the satisfaction of knowing that you’re the owner of clothes that have been designed and crafted without compromise.

CREATED IN THE UK

&SONS clothing is the brainchild of a group of like-minded craftspeople who make their living from taking and shaping superb visual imagery. That close attention to detail and style has now been applied to clothing for pioneers.

The world needs pioneers: people willing to try something new, break new ground, set out on new paths.

Risks and challenges

Life always presents risks and challenges.

The team at &SONS knows that’s part of the game and that we all need to play our part in creating and shaping our own futures and those of our families and friends.

At times we might not succeed but, if we fail, then we learn from our mistakes and make sure we get it right next time.

When it comes to creating a brand of clothing that reflects traditional values, employs time-honoured skills and uses only the finest natural materials we know that we are taking on a big challenge.

That’s why we’ve paid such close attention to sourcing from only the best providers of tailored clothing with care in every stitch and love in every seam. As craftspeople ourselves we respect the quality of strong design and applied labour.

The result is a range of unique clothing items that draw on the past to create new and meaningful garments and accessories that you will be proud to possess and wear.

This is clothing for creative pioneers: individuals who stretch themselves, their boundaries and their horizons. These are clothes for people who are cut from a different cloth.

For it is only when we strive to be better that we achieve our goals and live in fulfilment of our dreams. And these are the values that we pass on to our children.

We are trying to enter a very difficult and competitive market, so we know there are a lot of hurdles and obstacles in front of us.

At any given stage and time, our backers and customers are the most important part of the business.

By providing regular feedback we want to ensure that our backers know what we do with their money. But make no mistake, there is no higher priority then to deliver what we've promised.
