Why do we ask for your social ID?

In the 1980s, Tony Margolis, Bob Emfield and their wives mused about never leaving the beach. This led to the invention of a character named Tommy Bahama. By asking "What would Tommy wear?" and imagining the details of his life, they unwittingly created the springboard for a new brand and the Tommy Bahama Group, Inc. In 1991, Tony and Bob discussed their concept with Lucio Dalla Gasperina. From the outset, the three envisioned the kind of upscale casual apparel Tommy would wear: printed silk shirts and tailored pants for refined island living. They soon launched a collection of menswear that transported people to an island state of mind and celebrated the best part of the week - the weekend. Tommy Bahama has since become a total "island lifestyle" experience that includes men's and women's clothing and accessories, food, cocktails, home furnishings, beach gear and more. From days at the water's edge to elegant evenings out on the town, their guests are treated to subtle textures and refined finishes that are all carefully considered and meticulously crafted. Since 2003, the Tommy Bahama Group has been wholly owned by Oxford Industries, Inc., an international apparel design, sourcing and marketing company. Oxford's acquisition of Tommy Bahama gave the brand more exposure and the secure financial backing to grow. They share their values and respect their desire to maintain the unique culture of the brand. Tommy Bahama is committed to extending the relaxed, positive vibe of our brand into philanthropic efforts. Their primary areas of focus are cancer research, assistance for disadvantaged families and children, and the ethical treatment of animals. Their support of the Garden of Hope and Courage is an example of this commitment. Janet Emfield (wife of Bob) was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1990; she envisioned a peaceful garden in the midst of a sterile hospital setting. In 2004, the Garden of Hope and Courage Foundation became a reality. Its goals: to increase public awareness of breast cancer; to improve early detection and treatment; and to fund research. Since 1996, they've donated a percentage of sales from apparel and accessories designed specifically for this cause. They donate to hundreds of other organizations including Make-A-Wish Foundation®, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, United Way, American Heart Association, Gift of Life, Shane Victorino Foundation, Ryan House, Food Bank for New York City, Citymeals-on-Wheels, Olive Crest and the Humane Society. Their retail stores also provide community support by hosting events like Shop for a Cause, with a portion of the profits from the events going to local charities. And each of their restaurants sponsors annual golf tournaments to raise funds for the local non-profit organizations of their choice.

At thredUP, we believe in a sustainable fashion future. Thrifting is about more than just finding amazing deals on your favorite brands. It’s about shopping with intention, rejecting throwaway fashion culture, and standing for sustainability. The clothes we wear have the power to create change. Thrifting Can Help Solve the Fashion Waste Crisis. Our love for constant newness has come at too high a price for our planet. Shopping secondhand reduces the cost of fashion by giving new life to used clothes. Resale moves us one step closer to a circular fashion future. New clothing production is hurting the planet. One new garment takes 77 gallons of water and creates 17 lbs of CO2e. Over 100B garments are produced each year, which is 2X more than 15 years ago. Perfectly good clothing is being discarded. 1 in 2 people throw their clothes straight in the trash. 73% of apparel is sent to landfill or incinerated, 95% of which could be reused or recycled. Extending the life of clothes fights fashion waste. Shopping secondhand displaces the need for new clothing production and diverts items from landfills. Buying one used item reduces its carbon, waste, and water footprints by 82%. In 2009, our co-founder & CEO James Reinhart realized he had a closet full of clothes he didn’t wear. He wasn’t alone. He knew there was value in those clothes, and “looking back at that moment, I certainly didn’t appreciate how that insight could eventually upend how we look at innovation in retail, the apparel industry, and our environment.” We’re an online consignment & thrift store, where you can constantly refresh your style while creating less waste. At ThredUP, we created a smarter way to shop and sell. We deliver a modern resale experience on one of the largest online platforms for women’s and kids’ secondhand apparel, providing a fun and convenient place to shop and clean out your closet. The circular closet, powered by proprietary technology. We’re able to process and recirculate clothing at an extraordinary speed and scale, all in support of sustainable fashion, freer closets, and a better world. thredUP does good for people and the planet. We give new life to millions of used clothes, offsetting the environmental and financial cost of fashion. We’ve made it our job to educate consumers and bring awareness to the global fashion waste crisis. We created a first-of-its-kind carbon calculator to help consumers understand how their fashion habits contribute to climate change. Our industry report highlights the rapidly emerging resale economy, which is estimated to grow to $36 billion by 2024, and includes a fashion waste analysis that shines a light on the global issues of overproduction, disposable fashion culture, and single-use fashion. We teamed up with designer Zero Waste Daniel to create an upcycled collection made entirely from secondhand garments and fabric scraps. thredUP’s customers get to shop the closets of their favorite celebrities and influencers, and thrift gets a celeb-endorsed popularity boost. We believe our impact can be amplified when we join forces with the broader fashion industry. thredUP is powering resale for some of the world’s leading fashion retailers and brands, like Walmart, Madewell, and Reformation.

Swap Society is on a mission to make sustainable fashion, accessible to all. Swap Society is an online clothing swap that makes it easy and affordable to mix up your wardrobe sustainably. Send them your clothes that don't fit or aren't your current style and swap them for clothes you want to wear now. Their alt currency SwapCoin™ gives multidimensional value to garments and makes sure you get equal value for the clothes you swap, so our swap is super fair. Plus, you'll save lots of money on clothes while lowering your clothing footprint. We accept all brands and sizes because we believe that all wearable clothing should be kept in circulation for as long as possible. Swap Society harnesses technology to promote circularity in the fashion industry. Our circular business model is a sustainable alternative to the take-make-dispose linear consumption model and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, and waste. We envision a fashion future that emphasizes extending the life of garments through proper care and reuse. “I love fashion, but I don’t think the clothes we wear should harm the environment or our fellow humans. When I learned the truths about the fashion industry, I started looking for alternatives and started swapping with women in my local community. It was easier than trying to resell my clothes, and I was hooked. I launched Swap Society in 2017 to take swapping to the next level and make it available online to women across the USA. Clothes swapping is fun, saves money, and is more sustainable than shopping. When you swap, you don't have to sacrifice style at all to have a more sustainable wardrobe!” says Nicole Robertson, the Founder and CEO of Swap Society. Prior to founding Swap Society, Nicole’s passion for the environment led her to work as VP of Marketing for bioplastics manufacturer Cereplast. A cosmetics industry veteran, she previously held senior-level positions for beauty companies including Beautyfix by Dermstore.com, Fred Segal Beauty and Procter & Gamble’s Reflect. She is also an accomplished musician and retired dancer who lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their two sons. The average American sends 70 pounds of clothes to landfills every year. That’s 21 billion pounds of post-consumer textile waste per year! Total greenhouse gas emissions from textiles production, at 1.2 billion tonnes annually, are more than those of all international flights and maritime shipping combined. Less than 20% of what gets donated to charities gets resold. The majority of people who make clothes for the global market live in poverty, and are subject to exploitation, working in unsafe and dirty conditions with very little pay. 36 million people are living in modern slavery today, many of who are working in the supply chains of Western brands, and 80% of garment workers are women. Let go of the clothes that don't fit or aren't your current style and swap them for clothes you want to wear now. Swap Society makes it easy and affordable to mix up your wardrobe sustainably.

Thrift+ was founded to make the charity shopping experience as good as the best online clothes retailers, ensuring fewer clothes end up in landfill. Our founder, Joe Metcalfe, left his job in 2014 with the mission of bringing charity shops online. In 2015, he built & launched the UK's first Click & Collect app for high street charity shops. In 2017, Thrift+ was born, and we’ve been growing ever since. We’re building the best online shopping experience for second-hand clothes while making it easy for individuals and brands to re-sell unwanted items and give them a new life. At the same time, they also raise important funds for charity. Sales of second hand clothes are predicted to over take sales of new clothes in the next few years, and we want to accelerate that journey by working alongside brands & retailers. Thrift+ is our way to help clean up the fashion industry, bring the fun back to buying new clothes, and create a circular economy that reduces waste and builds a more sustainable future.

The destination for luxury recommerce, Hewi boasts an expert curation of brands and an unparalleled commitment to customer service for buyers and sellers alike. A forerunner in resale, since its inception in 2012 the platform has pioneered and paved the way for pre-owned fashion, revolutionising the industry in building a circular economy that's now leading global conversation and urgent change in how the world shops luxury. "We knew it was a good idea from the start", says Tatiana Wolter-Ferguson, Hewi's chief executive officer, who founded the company with her mother, Sharon, and sister, Natalya. "We were moving from the south of France to the U.K., we were going through our wardrobes, deciding what we should and shouldn't keep and we kept telling each other, "I've hardly ever worn this - sell it," she explains, adding, "Other people were taking storage units, additional home space or even new houses for these wardrobes. Because of the quality of these pieces, it was never stock that was going to end up in landfill, so we wanted to create this safe space where members could benefit - and profit - from giving their pre-loved fashion a new lease of life." Headquartered in Mayfair in the heart of London, Hewi also offers a VIP service to sellers from the worlds of fashion, film, and royalty, helping them to manage their wardrobes and decide what to sell on. The business has become a global brand, recently collaborating with Sotheby's to create its first ever luxury handbag and accessories auction; and partnering with Vogue to host a sale of items from the wardrobes of 23 supermodels including Kate Moss and Gigi Hadid with proceeds going to charity. Combining digital innovation with unequalled sartorial expertise and bespoke customer service, Hewi honours brands and empowers people to drive fashion forward for good. It's All Good.

At Goodfair, we’ve created a unique online thrift store experience that encourages our customers to go beyond shopping secondhand and become full-fledged conscious consumers. Our mission of “No New Things” cuts down on the need for low wage factories and combats clothing waste and pollution that are the result of fast fashion. There are already so many clothes in circulation that conventional thrift stores and recycling plants can hardly keep up with donations. And, unfortunately, global R&D efforts have yet to produce a scalable method for recycling fibers. That’s where we come in! We rescue clothes on their way to landfills, quality check them, and then wrap them up in unique thrifted bundles just for you. Fast fashion provides trendy clothing at cheap prices, but it comes at a tremendous cost. The fast fashion industry doesn’t want you to know just how bad its practices are, but we’re here to help you get educated. Browse fast fashion statistics and data related to carbon pollution, water waste, labor violations, and more. Then share with your friends and family — become and advocate for change! Shopping secondhand is so much more than a trend! The benefits of buying thrifted apparel go far beyond obtaining that elusive “vintage or worn-in” look.

Ossi, a seasoned ecommerce and logistics professional, and his wife, had their first baby in the spring of 2013. It was obvious to them that it makes both ecological and financial sense to buy second hand. Most baby gear are in perfect condition after one or two previous owners, and cost a fraction of the new equivalents, let alone the environmental footprint of producing new. Unfortunately, the local flea markets didn’t have everything Ossi’s family needed. As an online retail professional, Ossi finally found all the missing items from various internet marketplaces. But the effort of doing that was certainly a major unnecessary hassle in the house with a newborn. Scanning through Facebook groups and various classifieds sites, negotiating prices and delivery costs, agreeing shipments and trying to avoid fraudulent sellers was all too much when searching for dozens of necessities worth a few euros each. And it wasn’t once or twice when the perfect product-seller-delivery-payment match led to nothing, as the product had already been sold to someone else. Of course, the problem was not confined to new parents. Many of us have too many unused items at home that we simply could not get to new homes with reasonable effort. Most people had thousands of euros lying in their shelves and cupboards, simply because there was no way to monetize them easily. All of us need something new almost daily, but most of us prefer buying a 2nd hand product if it is easily available. By the time the baby was crawling, Ossi had decided to fix the problem. He wanted to create an online space where all products for normal life can find a second home after they are not needed any more. Not only the expensive and prestigious ones, but also everything we needed for our daily lives some months ago, but not anymore. Europe is full of products that are not being used by the owner, but that are still valuable for someone else. The monetary value of each product is low, but making all these products move effortlessly around Europe to those who need them next was Ossi’s dream. This dream became Netflea.com.

Nestled in the heart of the Apulian countryside, among the green foliage of two thousand and four hundred olive trees, Mazzarelli Creative Resort is a 5-star Boutique Hotel ideal for those who choose to spend a refined holiday dedicated to relaxation and Made in Italy excellence. A Creative Resort was born from the experience of the Mazzarelli shirt factory. That of the Mazzarelli is a story that moves on the thread of passion. A story that has its roots in knowledge and experience, handed down from generation to generation. It is the story of a family that sees Domenico at the helm with his wife Tonia and his daughters Monica and Mariangela. Puglia is the place where everything starts, this is where this beautiful, long and positive story begins. A lively region, rich in beauty and culture, a region that knows how to preserve the knowledge of the past but which also knows how to look to the future. It is precisely in Puglia that Mazzarelli decides to give birth to a new story, a new bet: a manor house from the end of the 19th century is transformed into a welcoming accommodation facility, designed for those who choose to visit Puglia in all its beauty and immerse themselves in the fascinating reality of a historic company, which produces Made in Italy tailoring products of excellence. Mazzarelli Creative Resort was born from this idea, a 5-star resort in Polignano a Mare surrounded by over 2400 olive trees in a 20-hectare countryside. The tailor's room is a magical place steeped in history and tradition. Here you can live a personalized and unique tailoring experience by requesting your garment: an exclusive Mazzarelli tailored shirt made by hand with fine fabrics in cotton, wool or linen. Dall'esperienza della camiceria Mazzarelli nasce un Creative Resort. Quella dei Mazzarelli è una storia che si muove sul filo della passione. Una storia che affonda le sue radici nella conoscenza e nell’esperienza, tramandate da generazione in generazione. È la storia di una famiglia che vede al timone Domenico con sua moglie Tonia e le sue figlie Monica e Mariangela. La Puglia è il luogo in cui tutto nasce, è da qui che inizia questa storia bella, lunga e positiva. Una regione viva, ricca di bellezza e di cultura, una regione che sa custodire il sapere del passato ma che sa anche guardare al futuro. Proprio in Puglia Mazzarelli decide di far nascere una nuova storia, una nuova scommessa: una villa padronale di fine ‘800 si trasforma in un’accogliente struttura ricettiva, pensata per chi sceglie di visitare la Puglia in tutta la sua bellezza e di immergersi nell’affascinante realtà di un’azienda storica, che produce prodotti sartoriali Made in Italy di eccellenza. Da questa idea nasce Mazzarelli Creative Resort, un resort 5 stelle a Polignano a Mare circondato da oltre 2400 alberi di ulivo in un agro di 20 ettari.

Rifò-Lab, is a socially responsible brand of clothes. They produce high-quality winter garments, made with recycled cashmere wool and cotton and made in Italy (In Prato). Rifò was founded on the principles of ethics, sustainability and respect. In this regard, they have created the project #2loveprato which finances three social initiatives which has been helping Prato and its surroundings for years. Their aim is to socially link the production to its territory. Rifò is the made in Italy 3.0! A high-quality product which is environmentally and socially responsible! The fact that they always choose new limits to overcome and new challenges, in order to produce garments made respecting traditions, through sustainable materials and finally, trying to give something back to the community where they were born, makes the Rifò a sustainable fashion brand. Sustainability and fashion are two opposite words at first sight, since one refers by definition to lasting concepts, while the other refers to a temporary and constantly changing idea. This explains why they are very careful during the design phase, which also has to be sustainable. Rifò wants to create clothes that are versatile and qualitative, enhancing the details to make them unique. They are against programmed obsolescence, especially in the fashion industry. That is why when they launch a new product, they put it on pre-sale in order to understand the market demands and avoid overproduction. Producing small quantities also allows them to control the production chain, as well as its quality. Furthermore, this way they are able to listen to people and understand their needs, taking them into consideration during production. The pre-sale system allows them to create a sustainable clothing collection, looking up to our territory and the people who work there. Establishing a circular economy process is not enough to solve the issue of overproduction. If production exceeds demand, there will always be an unsold quantity that could turn into a massive amount of waste. According to Rifò, a sustainable circular production must also be ecological, simple and fast, including a small stock that meets the real needs of customers. Rifò thinks that the solution lies in recycling of clothes that otherwise would end up in a landfill or incinerator, transforming them into new resources. But that's not enough. According to them, sustainable fashion has to be emotional. Meaning, that there is a value attached to what we wear: don't forget it, don't waste it, try to repair it, readjust it to a different use. When repairing is no longer possible, then we can recycle the garment to give it a new life, a new meaning. The fashion industry has reached a saturation point, due to two main problems, overproduction and over-consumption. We produce much more than what we really buy, and we consume much more than we actually need. This system is no longer sustainable because it leads us to consume resources without producing something actually useful. Besides, it is no longer ethical because we do not know how and who makes the clothes we buy.

The guitarwrist is a not-for-profit company. 100% of the profits from each sale go to the Artist’s charity of choice. The guitarwrist make bespoke bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings from artists used guitar strings and plectrums, all hand made in the UK by Emma Hedley Jewellery and Breakbeat Jewellery. These items have both an emotional and physical connection to the Artist and fan. Around 95% of the components from the strings we receive will be used to create the jewellery pieces, thus reducing the amount of strings metal that normally ends up in landfill. Their history start back in 200, when his founder took time out to look at more ethical and social enterprise ventures. One of the things he noticed was that guitar strings and consumables were one of the biggest expenses to artists yet once they were used they were just discarded and binned. To make matters worse, he found that virtually all used guitar strings ended up in landfill. Yes, some bits were recycled, but the vast majority weren’t. So the initial idea came about of The guitarwrist which is to get artists to donate their used guitar strings to their where they can turn these into amazing pieces of jewellery that have both an emotional and a physical connection with a great guitarist or bassist and the fan! This idea bumbled along, and other projects got in the way, but a couple of years ago his founder re-ignited the idea and contacted a number of guitarists, and they all loved the idea, especially as they’ve worked on the model so that the profits from the sale of the bracelets, rings and necklaces go to the Artist’s charity of choice. The guitarwrist also spent time researching what the fans wanted and how best to help the charities and who could produce the products.

Born and raised in England, Penelope Chilvers originally trained as a painter at the Byam Shaw School of Art in London, and was granted a scholarship from the Spanish Ministry of Culture, to complete an MA at Complutense University in Madrid. Her love affair with Spain and local craftsmanship began long before. As a child, she spent every school holiday in the province of Girona, where she first came across rustic, handmade alpargatas. She has been trying to make the perfect raw edged, bullhide moccasin that only exists in her childhood memories ever since! Penelope lived for a few years in the city of Barcelona, as a painter and designer, where she collaborated with artists and artisans. She worked with woodturners, designed for the textile industry and worked on interesting projects e.g. the restoration of the Picasso Museum. While living in Barcelona, she enjoyed riding in her lunch break in the national park of Collserola in the hills above the city, wearing traditional Spanish riding boots. She pursued the idea of bringing the Spanish riding boot to England and commissioned a small number of traditional artisans in the hills of Spain to make the perfect equestrian boot – our Long Tassel boot - to her own specifications. This boot remains a firm favourite in the collection, most famously worn back in 2004 by Prince William’s then girlfriend, Kate Middleton. Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, continues to wear her boots to this day, most recently on a royal engagement in County Durham to visit Manor Farm. Having returned to the UK, Penelope began to work from her kitchen table, selling over 100 pairs of the Long Tassel Boot in a short space of time to a leading fashion boutique in Notting Hill, called The Cross. From that moment on, she got to work, designing her first comprehensive collection to launch at Paris Fashion Week in 2004. The collection has since grown to include iconic styles, such as the Incredible Boot, our highly sought after après ski boot, the crepe soled Neon Safari boot and a solid offer of Goodyear welted outdoor boots and footwear for experience and adventure.
