Far Afield makes a conscious approach to sourcing products from reliable and ethically sound suppliers. All clothing and accessories are sourced globally, with a dedication to high quality and ethics. We work with a variety of factories in both Europe and Asia, where we regularly pay visits to ensure that our expectations of high standards are met.
Far Afield is heavily influenced by global travel – it is the colours, textures, sights and experiences. Be it a rainy city in England, or a tropical setting in a far away land, we take these experiences and combine them with our passion for design. Far Afield is contemporary British menswear with a global inspiration.
Far Afield was founded in the UK by brothers, Mark & Chris Scholes in 2016. Together they have 20+ years experience in menswear design, production, sourcing and retail. Previous to Far Afield, Mark has founded menswear brands tuktuk and Madras Shirting Company, whereas Chris founded the multi-brand retail space, Thread Menswear, in Brighton in 2012. With their acquired skills across the menswear industry, they decided to combine forces back in 2016, and Far Afield is the result of that.
