Stitch Fix Launching Sustainably Made Knits

How do you know that you can trust a clothing dealer’s quality? One positive indication is its staying power. And partnering with a mill with 115 years of making shirts is a pretty good place to begin. 

On Nov. 2, the online, personalized styling service Stitch Fix launched Mohnton Made, a sustainable and size-inclusive modern basic line developed with a textile maker who’s been around since the turn of the 20th century. Manufactured at the Stitch Fix-owned and operated Mohnton Mills Knitting facility, the Mohnton, Pa. mill has been operating since 1906. The brand was developed and constructed for comfy wear with sustainable materials. In-house designed t-shirts, cozy sweats, and knit separates serve as perfect fall foils, sliding between cold and warm days.

Stitch Fix applied user data via experienced pros to create the perfect fit and Mohnton’s veteran squad served as the perfect source to translate that vision. As a textile-driven community, most of the Mohnton Knitting Mills team have over 20 years of knitting and sewing experience. The sustainably produced clothing, made from upcycled cotton and recycled polyester, is available to everyone — size-inclusive offerings include women’s XS-3X and men’s XS-3XL.

“Combining the rich heritage of Mohnton Mills with Stitch Fix’s data-backed designs made for a really unique creation process that shines through in Mohnton Made,” Loretta Choy, Stitch Fix Women’s general manager said in a statement.

Owning Mohnton Mills also allowed Stitch Fix to support and commit to social responsibility in producing this new line. Natural materials color Mohnton Made threads with plant dyes applied to the t-shirt array. Stitch Fix partnered with Green Matters Natural Dye Company to collect rainwater that helped to hue Mohnton t-shirts with plant matter like madder root, myrobalan, and cutch tree.

“By combining their unparalleled techniques with more sustainable materials, we are able to offer our clients more thoughtfully made, high-quality essentials that everyone needs in their closet,” Choy said. 

You can find Mohnton Made through Stitch Fix’s recently launched, poignantly personalized shopping platform, Stitch Fix Freestyle.

They are what you wear when you build a skyscraper. They are what you wear when you keep the streets safe. You wear them to defend the country. They are good for exploring the wilderness. And you wear them when you go toe to toe with the roughest that life has to offer.

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag gray

Patagonia, the trailblazer in outdoor gear, has surprised fans everywhere by releasing an upgraded version of their trendy Black Hole Duffel Bag before Christmas, with its original release scheduled for Spring 2024. The Black Hole Duffel Bag has achieved major cult status since its creation 19 years ago, and it marries functionality, durability, and, best of all, a commitment to the planet.
The Patagonia Black Hole Duffel: A symphony of sustainability and style
In an essay for the New York Times, the founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard, wrote, “People ask me how [Patagonia] has managed to stick around so long … I tell them it’s been our unrelenting focus on quality, which includes making things that last and that causes the least amount of harm to our planet.”

A significant transformation graces the latest Patagonia bag lineup, marking a pivotal shift towards sustainability. In a notable departure from the past, these bags proudly showcase a 100 percent recycled thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating, replacing the previous use of virgin TPU. This strategic change extends beyond the surface, touching the very fabric, lining, and webbing, all of which are now crafted from 100 percent recycled materials.

These limited-edition watches are made with actual pieces of the Berlin Wall

Wind of Change watch on wrist

The masses remember many different moments in history as turning points in the path humans take. Some take us toward destruction, like the development of the atomic bomb, and others take us closer to serenity and peace, like the end of World War II. Some lead to others, some seem isolated, but all create lasting impacts on our collective memory and view of the world. The style and the fashion industry are not immune to those moments and will create garments and entire style trends from them. From WWII-inspired coats and boots to the lasting impact it has on men's watches with the best field watches and pilot watches.

One of the more recent events that shaped our world today was the end of the Cold War and the way the fall of the Berlin Wall signified a reunification of a Germany ripped apart for half a century. Many industries created their own interpretations of the time, from movies and books to politics and music. Wind of Change by The Scorpions became the anthem by which we celebrated the unification of Germany after years of post-war division. Now, Col & MacArthur offers the Wind of Change watch, which finds a way to remind us all of a time when we overcame division to become united once again.
