Community Clothing is the new brand set up to save British manufacturers and factories from closing down.

On our minds is the not-for-profit co-operative Community Clothing, a brand set up to support British manufacturing and saving local factories from closure. Initiated by prominent Savile Row tailor Patrick Grant, the CC range will comprise of three staple garments for the everyday: straight-cut jeans, a classic Harrington jacket and a raincoat – all at high street price points. By keeping designs and materials uncomplex and selling direct to consumers, Grant means he will be able to offer superior quality British-made clothing for everyone – whilst addressing the factories’ challenge of seasonal demand and (hopefully) keeping them busy all year round.
