Ethical Statement

We are passionate about what we do and are committed to offering a high quality, friendly and efficient service. If you are happy then so are we!

We understand that the clothing industry has an environmental impact that we all need to consider carefully. That’s why we make garments to treasure, not to be used a handful of times and then sent to landfill. Feedback from customers is consistently high regarding the quality of our garments and we strive to maintain those excellent standards so that you can keep and love your chosen item long in to the future

To preserve the life of your Old School Football tops we suggest that you wash them on a cool wash. Click here for more information on the garment care symbols detailed on your purchases.

We are currently offering all customers the chance to plant a tree with every purchase made. For less than a pound your tree will help reforestation projects in Latin America, Africa and Asia at part of the One Tree Planted charity

We do not use fur, wool, down, leather or any other animal product in our clothing 

What we do not use we repurpose or donate to charitable causes.

We are proud that the clear packaging wrapping each one of our garments is made of CPP and is 100% recyclable. We are currently investigating the environmental impact of our branded postage bags.

We are committed to offering fair and respectful conditions to our workers here in the UK and provide a work environment that values diversity. Employees are provided opportunities regardless of race, colour, religion, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, age or disability.

We currently source our garments from three main suppliers, all of whom adhere to the highest ethical standards in terms of both the labour used to produce them and the environmental impact of production.
