Tails 1979 was born out of the heritage of Tails and the Unexpected and the concept of place of origin. The importance of where our clothing comes from is at the heart of our clothing label.
Tails 1979 is sustainable menswear. Even though the label is relatively new we’ve been working with our mills and manufacturers for generations. Our makers live and breathe clothing making. They care about the environment as much as we do. There is much to be celebrated in the great manufacturers around the British Isles and Europe. As the Tails brand grows, the more we will support these makers.
Tails 1979 is slow fashion. We started with beautifully-made trousers. The place of origin being Yorkshire. A slim cut cotton trouser with a medium-high waist. The ten ounce cloth washes and fades and improves with age. We create contemporary menswear with a smart yet rugged aesthetic. Our customer dresses well, but isn’t precious about. They wear clothing that lasts.
The vision of Tails is to make clothing with old values that younger men will love to wear. For the appreciation of craftsmanship to be passed down through the generations. We hope you enjoy wearing Tails’ clothing as much as we enjoy creating it.
