Basic Rights was launched in 2016 by guitarist Freddie Cowan to make staples with an attention to detail

Basic Rights

 We focus on fabric, fit and finish

We make pieces that bring a wardrobe together

We’re committed to working with the best, from tailors with decades of experience to renowned mills and factories committed to treating their workers ethically

We believe in style over fashion

We believe clothes should be lived in

We believe there are more important things to life than what we wear


Basic Rights was founded in NYC and is designed in London.
