Purchasing a vegan suit may seem daunting, but with a little effort you can find just what you’re looking for. Most suits are made from sheep’s wool. Silk (from silkworms) and cashmere (from goats) are two other fibers to watch out for. To find a vegan suit, look for linen, cotton, polyester, or rayon-based fabrics.
Many retailers will offer at least a few suits made from these animal-friendly fabrics. If you want to find something fancier and you have the funds, consider working directly with a designer or tailor to craft the perfect suit to fit your needs. ProperSuit has vegan options and does custom fittings. Brave Gentleman is a high-end completely vegan suit retailer.
Also take note that most ties are made from silk, but vegan ties are nevertheless easy to find (and are typically less expensive). Both rayon and polyester can be processed in ways that make these materials indistinguishable from silk. Jaan J. is a wonderful vegan tie company, or if you’re looking for something a little more unconventional, check out High Cotton ties and bow ties. If you’re on a budget, some dollar stores carry ties made from vegan materials.
