Stylish (and Sustainable) Saturday: Two Eco Outfits for Guys

Guest Post by Brad at the fantastic guy’s ethical style blog, Commerce with a Conscience

Ed Note: I’m loving the site, Commerce with a Conscience, a guest post from which is featured below. Brad has a classic/cool sense of style and knows where to find the good stuff, as evidenced by his frequent postings. For all my guy readers, this one’s for you, and ladies, if you’re anything like me, you love borrowing from men’s closets, especially this season, when boyfriend jeans and the like are all over the style pages. Enjoy!

The items featured in the Stylish Saturday round-up run the eco / ethical gamut; some are organic, others Fair Trade and others simply expertly made in the US. Whether you’re at the Farmers Market, or out for a night on the town, you can still look good while doing good.
