Lately, it’s very hard to find minimalistic style and at the same time good quality clothes. Well, I come across a wonderfull brand for men with those attributes, I’m talking about Basic Rights! You might be thinking… When this became a blog about law? No, my dear, this is amazing clothes with a name that truly show their essence.
It all started when guitarist Freddie Cowan and his band ‘The Vaccines’ were making a record in New York City, living day and night in the studio. His clothes weren’t working. In came tailor David Chambers.
It was back when Freddie was making his record that the concept of Basic Rights was born. It’s where they started. So this was made for those who care about their work. The community of artists, musicians, and anyone else who creates in our clothes.
Freddie wanted to focus his attention on his work and needed collection of essentials, tailored to the highest standard. Pieces that were everyday and special. A focus on fabric and quality, finish and cut. It isn’t fashion. It’s much more solid than that. Together, they want to make future classics. That favorite t-shirt and the things that you come back to again and again. Not something that’s flash in a pan.
They seek for a strong element of tailoring and that the clothes are well constructed. It’s where David’s roots are. Fredie adds four concepts straightforward, quality, simplicity, detail.
