Nottingham-based Universal Works brings “good honest menswear” to Coal Drops Yard. And with its well-cut, easy to wear collections, it’s obvious why the label has gathered fans since launching in 2009.
A very British, modern brand, the look is inspired by a bygone era of well-dressed men, workwear, and the musical and sporting subcultures that define everyday life in the UK.
But these aren’t just beautifully functional clothes. Universal Works produces in a highly considered way, with small-batch lines made in the UK and overseas, from “factories we trust, admire and are proud to be associated with”.
