John Lewis introduces Community Clothing to its Menswear for Spring 2021
John Lewis is excited to exclusively introduce Community Clothing by menswear authority Patrick Grant into shops for Spring 2021. The launch of the partnership continues both brands’ mission to champion Independent and British Businesses.
The full collection is available from March both in-store and online at johnlewis.com. Community Clothing makes contemporary and affordable classics with 100% made in UK credentials. This 29-piece collection of wardrobe staples celebrates British craftsmanship – from the yarn that’s spun in Manchester to the construction in Blackburn. Each garment is of the highest quality, all made to last and be loved!
The collection also includes rugby shirts, as well as brilliant basics such as organic cotton tees and chore jackets.
“Community Clothing has a simple mission. This is to make fantastic quality everyday clothes! And by doing so deliver positive social change and help re-store economic prosperity in the UK textile communities. This is the region we work, and many of them in the UK’s most deprived regions. Community is in our name, it’s central to everything we do, as it is at John Lewis. Community Clothing and John Lewis have much in common philosophically,”says Patrick Grant, Founder of Community Clothing
The partnership encapsulates an on-going commitment to supporting small independent brands (which is great news for British brands). John Lewis continues to evolve its fashion offering, and aims to bring 50 new fashion and beauty brands onboard. This will range from indie start-ups to high street favourites. And underline its focus on quality, strong purpose and affordable clothing to support UK communities at the heart of the brand.
Patrick Grant and his team offer customers a true choice of affordable, timeless menswear staples through the Community Clothing label. Supporting the clothing sector and its wider communities are the values that sit at the heart of the brand. More than ever before, those values are key to our customers and to our brand mission at John Lewis.comments Beth Pettet, Head of Menswear at John Lewis
