Brand To Know: Basic Rights

This London label was originally founded in New York by The Vaccine’s guitarist Freddie Cowan in 2016. The pieces feel like something you might have come across in a vintage photograph of Jack Kerouac, or an old ‘60s photo of your dad. Effortlessly cool, subtly retro. It’s style over fashion. Clothes you can live in. The brand is devoted to working with the most experienced tailors, and renowned mills and factories committed to treating their workers ethically. This gives the pieces a sense of quality, and the feeling that you will own them a long time.
