Garments for good

02 Jun 2017

After listening to your feedback, we’ve very recently done away with our old, unisex sizing in favour of separate, womens and mens sizing. This means our sizing is now in line with standard, high-street sizing, and your garments will look and feel better on. Now, when choosing our knits, women ought to try taking 2 sizes down from what you took in the past. Men ought to try 1 size up.

This sizing change presented us with the opportunity to once again work with the fantastic, goods-redistribution organisation, In Kind Direct.

In Kind Direct was set up in 1997 by HRH The Prince of Wales to distribute donated goods from manufacturers and retailers to charities in the UK and overseas.

Many of the world’s leading, best-known manufacturers and retailers donate goods to In Kind Direct. To date, they have re-distributed £170m worth of goods to 8,300 charities in the UK, and further afield.

Last year, we worked with In Kind Direct, and we’re delighted the jumpers and cardigans we donated had a significant and positive impact upon several, worthy charities and non-profit organisations, here in the UK and abroad.

This time around, we’ve donated our old, unisex-sized stock – over 16000 garments – to this incredible initiative, and we’re confident these pieces will end up in the right hands as In Kind Direct thoroughly vets every potential charity keen to access goods.

This year, In Kind Direct is celebrating 20 years of benefitting thousands of charities, partnering with over 9,000 organisations and having an amazing impact on many, many people’s lives. You can find out about these celebrations here.
