Vegan Fashion for Men

Last Updated: April 14, 2024

It is true that the fashion industry is more geared towards females, but times are changing. Men are back in the limelight and vegan fashion brands are popping up to meet the demand. Here is a list of brands for men to keep an eye on!

Lee Jeans

Crafted in Italy’s famed Candiani Mill, it uses 70 percent fewer chemicals, 70 percent less energy and 50 percent less water than denim usually requires. But crucially for animal lovers, that little leather back patch that’s usually found on jeans has been replaced with a vegan version.

As one of the world’s first denim brands, the Lee® brand recognizes its role in supporting sustainable innovation through its product design and manufacturing processes. With guidance from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation via The Jeans Redesign, Lee® stands committed to helping transform the way it produces jeans, tackling waste, pollution, and the use of harmful practices.

The Jeans Redesign Guidelines set out minimum requirements on garment durability, material health, recyclability, and traceability. The guidelines are based on the principles of the circular economy and will work to ensure jeans last longer, can easily be recycled, and are made in a way that is better for the environment and the health of garment workers.

The Jeans Redesign – created through the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s Make Fashion Circular initiative – brought together more than 40 denim experts from academia, brands, retailers, manufacturers, collectors, sorters and NGOs, to develop the Guidelines. Lee® is one of 16 brands participating in this effort, which also has been endorsed by the NGO’s Fashion Revolution and Textile Exchange.

Save the Duck

One brand which has been spearheading the push to more sustainable fashion since its inception is Save The Duck. An industry favourite, the Italian outerwear company has been at the forefront of sustainable and vegan fashion, and now, for its fall/winter 2019 season, the brand is continuing to boldly (and fashionably) advocate sustainable and animal-free ethics with its newest collection and campaign.

This season’s collection features cruelty-free outerwear, with faux fur coats and feather-less down puffer jackets; waterproof jackets, tees, and sweats. In addition to providing animal-free, ecological fabric, Save The Duck‘s penchant for bold colour combines with clean silhouettes and genderless, unisex pieces.

On the 5th of September 2019 Save The Duck became the first fashion brand in Italy to obtain the certification reserved to the best performers in social and sustainability issues and becomes a B Corp.

At Save The Duck caring about animals means caring about the environment where they live, our planet. Their community is conscious of environmental values in favour of a sustainable world. They see luxury as the quality of life and connection with the beauty of nature. This is another reason why we became B Corp approved, for companies applying the highest social and environmental standards of responsibility and transparency.


This brand started in Amsterdam in the 1990s by a group of surfers. A few of these surfers smoke cannabis and had an interest in making clothes out of hemp and that is cruelty-free.

Being hemp tailors Hoodlamb is committed to leading the reemergence of hemp in fashion design. As one of the world’s most incredible natural resources, the brand believes hemp is the key to creating a truly sustainable fashion for the future. Each HoodLamb garment is created using one of Hoodlamb’s unique hemp fabric blends and combines age-old traditions of hemp tailoring with a modern approach to style and fit.

Hoodlamb is dedicated to making hemp clothes that are well made and fashionable. The brand works with factories in China, which are certified by international institutions for worker’s rights, safety and well being. The brand also visits their farmers and factories several times a year.
