UK-based menswear brand Cut & Pin aims to bring a new vision to men's fashion: a wardrobe collection of everyday pieces, designed and made with integrity at their core. A “less is more” philosophy is echoed in all aspects of Cut&Pin and the products the brand creates. Cut&Pin believes in conscious consumption, a sentiment that has helped them create a collection of pieces that transcend trends and gimmicks.
“We believe in stepping away from the treadmill of fads and trends, creating products that are seasonless and offer the versatility of a modern wardrobe. Whether working from home, going to a meeting at the office, attending a lunch date, or just having a beer with your mates, our clothes are designed to work around you.”
Friends Al Baker and Martin Parker both have a background in the fashion industry – in design and marketing – and have witnessed first-hand the impact the industry can have on the planet. They had a desire to fill a gap in the menswear market, and launch a brand that married style with responsible sourcing, creating pieces that will stand the test of time.
Cut&Pin aims to minimise the impact that clothing has on the environment by using deadstock piles (the offcuts that big manufacturers throw away – deadstock is a fabric that never reaches the cutting-room floor, remaining on a warehouse shelf), recycled materials and organic fabric to create their collections.
Choosing the right supply partners, who share their sensibilities, is crucial to the brand. Their supply partners are family-owned businesses that focus on small, exclusive runs - something Cut&Pin is strongly passionate about, as mass production is out of the question. The founders work closely with their suppliers in Mongolia and Portugal. Fabric is often local, and each stage of production, from sourcing to finishing, is meticulously controlled, ensuring the highest standards are maintained.
Choosing organic fabrics, which is a priority for Cut&Pin, also benefits the farmers and their local communities, as it avoids the harsh and toxic substances that are often used in the production of conventionally made fabrics.
The brand often uses organic cotton, a vegan material.

What are vegan trainers made from?
Vegan trainers (and sneakers) are made without the use of any animal materials, such as leather, suede, fur or wool. Vegan shoes are made of a variety of fabrics, traditionally synthetic but increasingly using innovative materials derived from nature with all the properties of leather, such as apple leather, cactus leather and bio-based leather (made from oil derived from cereal crops). Many synthetic trainers are now made using recycled plastics from ocean trash.

The quick answer: yes! But you can make them last longer by taking care of the shoes. Just as you would care for animal-leather trainers, you should look after your vegan leather trainers. With proper care, vegan trainers can last anywhere from two to five years, depending on how much wear and tear they encounter, which is the same as their animal-leather counterparts.
Are trainers the same as sneakers?
Yes! As far as we are concerned they are.
The British call them trainers, because they can be used for sports or training.
The Americans call them sneakers, presumably because, being soft-soled, they're suitable for sneaking around in!
But to confuse things further, they are also called tennis shoes in the US.
