Braintree Clothing is a London based company committed to ethical manufacturing. They use natural, organic, and recycled fabrics; have a comprehensive animal welfare policy; and pay fair wages to factory employees. Additionally, they believe in maintaining long term relationships with their factories to ensure continued employment and consistent regulation.
All of that is awesome, but what attracted me to Braintree was their collection. Modern, casual, and just a bit British heritage, it's effortless, everyday wear. They provided the Jarrah Striped Tee to review on Style Wise and I love it more than I expected (and I expected to love it because it's striped!). It's made of a bamboo viscose/cotton blend with a bit of stretch and has cool buttons on the back. After I snapped these shots, I undid the bottom three buttons for more of a flyaway look with my high waist jeans. I like that the angled hem looks like a vented shirttail on a suit when the buttons are undone.

The width of the stripes and the cut made me think of casual '70s looks, so I paired it with flares and vintage, t-strap flats that remind me of clogs. The Jarrah top costs about $50.00 USD and runs true to size.
Side note: this was maybe the first time I've ever taken photos before work. With the time change, it gets dark at 5:00, but the morning light is glorious!
