Stylish and ethical menswear.
Arthur & Henry believe that every man needs a good shirt and founded the brand to provide beautiful and ethical men’s shirts. Proper shirts with cuffs (double and single) and collars. Shirts you can wear to work, to the pub, on a date…
Arthur & Henry (the founder’s grandfathers) both lived in an age where a shirt was both an every day item of clothing, and something special to be looked after. Holes darned, cuffs reversed & collars starched. Arthur & Henry don’t yearn for a rose tinted past, but take inspiration from it. An era when men dressed just that little bit smarter and clothes were made to last.
Arthur & Henry can also provide ‘fair & green’ sourcing and production services as well as private label production.

Ethical Focus & Policy
Arthur & Henry’s values are pretty simple: do less harm, do more good.
Arthur & Henry aims to benefit both people and planet. They only use sustainable fibres: organic cotton, fair trade cotton and linen. Both organic and fair trade cotton are premium price fibres, helping farmers’ income as well as being good for the environment. Their shirts are made by skilled Indian tailors who are paid decent wages in a factory with good working conditions. The factory is now GOTS certified and is regularly audited against various codes including the ETI base code.
They are expanding into other menswear products. In 2013 Arthur & Henry co-designed scarves with the Panchachuli co-operative, transforming women’s lives and livelihoods in the Himalayas. They also stock other ethical brands including Elvis & Kresse (upcycled) and Just Trade (fair trade).
Shirts are packaged in compostable ‘poly’bags. Paper and cardboard used when sending to customers is FSC/recycled.
Arthur & Henry plans to work more with fair trade / artisanal projects, having a more direct impact on poor communities and is taking steps to start measuring more the impact of working in the factory on the tailors lives and livelihoods.
