People

This jacket was made in house by Yarmouth Oilskins. Yarmouth Stores Ltd employ a dedicated team of 20 machinists and pattern cutters many of whom have been with the company for 25 years (the company has been in operation at the same site for over 100 years). Brothers We Stand have spoken in person with the factory manager and an employee who shared that it is a family-like atmosphere at the factory. This is supported by the length of time many workers have stayed at the factory.

The fabric is sourced from Brisbane Moss, a textile agent in Yorkshire established in 1858. Brisbane Moss won ​​the Queens Award for Export in 2004 and 2012 which shows the importance of quality and traditional fabrics, highlighting the enviable worldwide reputation that Brisbane Moss has built over the years. The fabric used in this shirt was woven in Italy.

Planet

Jacket made to last. It will be worn for many years negating the need for a replacement to be produced.

Fabric Oeko-tex certified. This means it is free of harmful substances and safe for human health and the environment too.

The fabric dyeing and finishing company are working to reduce their environmental impact through specific actions such as installing one of the largest heat recovery units of its type in Europe, reportedly saving over 4,000 tonnes of Co2 per year.

Cotton is a water hungry crop and conventional cotton requires a lot of pesticides which can leach into the environment where adequate safety measures are not in place.
