James Machin, the founder of Personal Effects, aims to create items and garments that have longevity and that people would want to keep forever. He believed that most of favourite clothes are damaged and repaired due to years of wear and tear but we could never throw them away because they’ve become part of our identity, Personal Effects are to recreate that feeling.
Personal Effects is a London-based contemporary menswear brand that doesn’t believe ‘essentials’ is a reductive term. The brand aims to imbue every carefully considered product with new-old meaning. To craft everyday objects that speak not only to artisanal skills and meticulously sourced materials but also to the vastness of history and cultures and journeys that have preceded them.
We have created the LDC values in the form of our three symbols that explore the mindful, traceable and transparent processes and practices that our brands adhere to and stand for, to help you discover how the products are made and make conscious choices.
Personal Effects aims to create items and garments that have a longevity with their most refined qualities.
