13 men’s vegan clothing brands UK proving its cool to be kind

As more of us adopt a more plant-based approach, there is an increasing consumer body searching for vegan clothing. UK men’s vegan clothing labels are listening to this growing consumer demand.

Demand for vegan fashion on the up

The fashion industry has, historically, not had the best track record when it comes to animal rights. However, the good news is that public opinion toward animal rights is starting to change. More people are turning to a vegan diet, and there is no doubt that vegan fashion has been steadily growing in popularity.
Supporting this animal cruelty-free approach, a report by The Vegan Society in 2021 found that 48% of consumers in the UK wanted to see more vegan fashion items. Similarly, 74% of consumers were willing to pay more for vegan fabric, including non-animal leather.

Types of vegan leather

There are a variety of new innovations in the vegan leather market. Cork is a popular material for making vegan materials. Some other raw materials that have been cleverly turned into animal-free leathers include:
• By-products from the pineapple and apple juicing industries
• Mushrooms
• Cactus leaves
• Fish skin
• Ground coffee beans
To learn more about sustainable leather innovations check out our ultimate guide to plant-based leathers.

Why synthetics aren't a great vegan option

It’s important when building vegan wardrobes that consumers aren’t just buying virgin synthetics. While these often are technically vegan products, they come with a plethora of environmental issues. These include everything from microplastic pollution to the environmental impacts of mining fossil fuels. They are also not a biodegradable fabric option.
See our article about biodegradable fabrics to find out more about this.

Men's vegan clothing brands

While not every brand on our list is completely vegan, they are all making steps to adopt a more animal-friendly approach. All brands have a good level of vegan products, and some are 100% vegan brands.
