The array of vegan male bloggers is all the evidence you need to know that cruelty-free menswear is hotter than ever. With mainstream companies and dedicated vegan brands offering everything from suits to bomber jackets, the days of passing on a particular item because it came with an unnecessary leather label are long gone. Whether you’re going for street-style chic or dangerously dapper, we’ve found the best vegan-friendly men’s brands to cover you from head to toe.


 SHOES

Huf
 Mercer Black Woven by HUF
Step up your vegan kicks game with these gray almost-high tops from skate company Huf. The tiny polka dot shoelaces are just the right amount of flare without too much flash. 

Wills
Slim Soles Patent Black by Wills London
Classy from the tapered square toe to the hand-stitched latex insole, these PETA-approved shoes are ethically made in Portugal from breathable, microfiber Italian faux patent leather. The all-vegan London-based brand Willis makes dress shoes so stylish that James Bond would be jealous.

Noah
 Marica & Macro by NOAH
Italian vegan leather footwear label Noah makes comfortable, simple shoes in styles that mimic mainstream looks. A cushy cork insole and grip natural rubber outsoles make these rust brown-colored vegan microsuede boots our top pick for fall weather frolics.

No Harm
The Hammersham by NOHARM
This decorative boot in a classic brogue style is made in Italy with the best vegan materials and highest ethical standards. Every pair of shoes from this vegan brand comes with a “No Harm” sole stamp so you can take every step with pride.

Bourgeois Boheme

Edward Black from Bourgeois Boheme
The London-based, all-vegan men’s and women’s footwear company blends classic British style with modern designs and ethical principles. The Edward is a classy all-occasion boot thanks to buckle and faux-suede accents.

 

JACKETS

James Payne
Junkie Slip by James Payne
James Payne is a Los Angeles-based brand of edgy men’s and women’s clothing. This jacket has all the markings of classic moto leather (epaulette details, inside chest and pocket sleeves), while the bright red rayon lining makes taking this jacket off just as fun as wearing it.

nANA jUDY
Perforated Faux Leather Bomber Jacket by nANA jUDY
A sportier jacket but with that same vegan leather appeal, this perforated bomber is by Australian company nANA jUDY—a favorite of Jared Leto’s band 30 Seconds to Mars. The beard and man bun is optional.

Usman
Dandy Jacket by Umasan
Umasan is a Berlin-based designer with super chic, asymmetrical styles. This loungey jacket is a departure from their usual black and white palette. For a casual but stylish look, pair the Dandy jacket with a nice pair of jeans.


SUITS

Brave GentleMan
Italian Tweed Cotton Suit by Brave GentleMan
A men’s fashion brand created by the Discerning Brute’s Joshua Katcher, this vegan line features dapper hats, coats, pants, shirts, and this gorgeous, streamlined suit. With or without the pants, the black Italian tweed suit jacket made from 100 percent organic cotton is a great way to take your look into high vegan fashion.

TopMan
Blue Textured Skinny Fit Suit by Topman 
Topman, the dedicated men’s line of United Kingdom-based retailer Topshop, carries a wide selection of suits, some of which are made without wool. This soft blue-hued, single-breasted, two-buttoned skinny suit is best worn with a skinny cotton tie.


SWEATERS

OBEY
Striped Sweater by OBEY Clothing
The optical illusion created by the alternating black and white stripes of this all-cotton, solid-ribbed trim sweater are only made better by its Fair Trade certification. OBEY was started in 2001 by famed street artist Shepard Fairey with the intent to spread his politically-charged messages across a new medium.

Only & Sons
Color Block Knitted Sweater by Only & Sons
Available at fashion retailer ASOS, Danish brand Only & Sons focuses on relaxed, comfortable menswear. This lightweight knit sweater’s color block pattern is a stylish way to spruce up a closet full of monotone sweaters. The tiny front slit pocket can’t hurt either.


COATS

H&M
Parka by H&M
During the colder days of fall, this nylon-cotton parka proves there’s no need to wear wool or goose down. This lightly-padded coat in a nylon and cotton blend features handwarmer pockets and a drawstring hood, and comes in either navy or black.

Selected Homme
Trench Coat by SELECTED HOMME
This Selected Homme trench is a minimalist classic thanks to a one-shoulder storm flap, a buttoned waistband in the back, a slanted side pocket, and contrast color lining. Selected Homme is a nordic brand that started off as menswear only and went unisex in 2008.


ACCESSORIES

Matt & Nat
Soren Briefcase by Matt & Nat
Also available in navy blue and black, this creamy tan briefcase features two outside pockets, an adjustable and removable strap, and a stunning slim profile. While vegan women go nuts for this cruelty-free brand, the Soren Briefcase proves that Matt & Nat makes amazing bags for men as well.

CLIFF Belts
Reversible Cork Belt by CLIFF Belts
Reversible belts are like getting a two-for-one! This reversible accessory from CLIFF features one black side and tiger brown cork—a sustainable, long-lasting material made from tree bark that wears much like leather—on the other.

General Knot
Vintage English Rose Skinny Necktie by General Knot
From plain to eccentric, General Knot & Co., is obsessed with sourcing vintage fabrics to create their stunning neckties, bow ties, and pocket squares. This vintage printed cotton tie is ideal for autumn thanks to its floral and botanical aesthetic.
