This is Community Clothing

Community Clothing began in 2016, inspired in part by the sad closure of one of Hawick’s biggest knitwear factories, what had been Lyle & Scott, leading to the loss of 170 much needed jobs. The idea was to create a sort of social cooperative which sought to sustain and create British manufacturing jobs, many of them located in the regions of the country that needed them most. It has always been people who lie at the heart of everything we do and we are extremely proud of what we, with your amazing support, have accomplished so far.  

To date, we have created over 342,000 hours of skilled making work, and today we work with 45 partner factories which employ a combined total of almost 2000 staff. From New Tredegar in South Wales, to Blackburn in Lancashire, to Hawick in the Scottish Borders, it is our privilege to work with such committed and wonderful people.

They’re the reason our clothing is so good, and we celebrate them, their skill and the pride they take in the work they do.

95% of what we sell is ever preset but from time to time, either because a yarn or fabric is no longer available, a factory can no longer make a product, or we’ve upgraded a fit, we’ll discontinue a product.

We are delighted to launch the Community Clothing take on this 80s Americana icon, super relaxed, effortlessly stylish, made in our classic 380g pure organic cotton loopback jersey.

Made here, made well, made with pride. Celebrating the wonderful people behind Community Clothing.
