Discouraged by garments deliberately made to break, Tom Cridland designed an everyday unisex crewneck sweater that comes with a 30-year guarantee.

On our minds is British menswear designer Tom Cridland’s progressive new design giving a whole new meaning to the idea of fashion “made to last”. Discouraged by the garments deliberately made to break-default, he designed an everyday unisex crewneck sweater that comes with a 30-year guarantee. The staple piece is produced in five colours and features clever detailing to enhance its durability such as reinforced sleeve arms; a ribbed trim; and a silicon treatment to prevent shrinking. With the guarantee the owner of the sweatshirt may also send it off for free repairs should it need some extra care over the decades. We love the idea of staples made to last – guaranteed – and hope to see this crowdfunding project turn out a sustainable business. More here.
