The Brothers We Stand flagship store is a collaborative project with Sam Mabley. After graduating from Bristol University last year with a music degree, Sam got in touch and suggested we work together on a physical store. For several years, Sam has had the vision of physical shops getting ethically produced clothes onto the high street. It was clear we shared the same vision to make ethical clothing accessible and working together on a Brothers We Stand shop seemed like a fantastic opportunity.
Sam identified Wapping Wharf, home to a new community of independent retailers, as an ideal location. After securing the lease of unit 22 he’s been working flat-out. Using almost entirely reclaimed materials Sam has transformed our shipping container into the perfect environment for a slick men’s clothing shopping experience. My personal highlight has to be watching Sam spend too many days sanding his pine-board floor until he could see his face in it.
We're excited to give you the chance to touch, feel and try-on items and ask us more about the stories behind the clothes.
If you’re in Bristol come and say hi.
Jonathan and Sam
