{06.16.09} Ask Valet.


So, what you're saying is that it's not easy being with someone green? We kid, we kid. You're in luck actually. More and more labels are embracing sustainable manufacturing practices and organic and eco-friendly fabrics. Steven Alan, who made a name for himself with his dressed-up/dressed-down style, just launched a small collection of his signature button-downs cut from butter soft organic cotton. Complete the look with a tie from sustainable luxury label Coto, which crafts ties from naturally-produced silks using AZO-free dyes, and a pair of classic desert boots cut from hemp cloth.
