We’ve long been out(er)spoken about the Outerknown for its recycled sustainable swim trunks, and sustainable men’s activewear, but they also make durable, organic cotton clothing for men.
T-shirts, sweatpants, sweaters, henleys, hoodies, and more—there are countless modern pieces to suit your personal style.
For us, that means the ultra-cozy yet classy Shelter Waffle Henley, featuring a luxurious and biodegradable blend of 70% wool and 30% recycled cashmere.
We love the henley sweater style combo, as it makes for easy layering when a base sweater is just too bulky.
Outerknown’s Ethical & Sustainability Practices
Outerknown develops organic cotton men’s clothes from, you guessed it—organic cotton certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).
The brand has also increased its preferred fiber usage of other sustainable alternatives to 95% in recent years and other men’s natural clothing includes materials like ethical wool, recycled cashmere, lyocell, and hemp.
That latter’s natural UPF rating makes it perfect if you’re seeking men’s organic sun protective clothing.
Even for pieces that use recycled synthetics, everything is bluesign®-approved, so there aren’t any harmful chemicals.

Outerknown publishes its complete list of suppliers, so you can determine exactly where your organic men’s shirts are coming from.
GOTS-certified Bergman Rivera manages the entire supply chain, so they know precisely where their organic cotton originates from.

Carbon commitments & green practices:
Outerknown is working to help the planet even more with its 2030 Sustainable Roadmap. Some initiatives include investing in circular solutions, better labor practices, and the Outerworn catalog of pre-loved pieces.
