Howies is one of those small clothiers that does not look at clothing (nor fashion) as disposable. Their short line of jackets and bags are made for the purpose of passing down to others during the lifespan of the product. As founder, David Hieatt mentions, “To make something well, you know, the best you can do, means going that extra mile. Every stitch, every zip, every little feature considered. The weakest points made strong. Then, and only then, can we say that we have fully understood the responsibility of making something.”
Their classic cut men’s jacket is ventilated and lined with organic tweed and finished nicely in grey.
