Following in Tom’s footsteps, FIGS (short for Fashion Inspired Global Sophistication) promises to donate a school uniform to a child in need with every tie purchase. The program is called Threads for Threads and will begin by supplying uniforms for children in 105 schools in Kenya and Tanzania. 

If that isn’t inspiring enough, it doesn’t hurt that collection features a variety of pure fabrics, like Italian silk and British wool, simple patterns and custom services. I’m especially impressed with the heathered wool and classic Tartan ties, though I think the bicycle print steals the show.

The company founder, Heather Hasson, had experience with Levis, Gucci and other fashion funded philanthropic endeavors before starting FIGS. Cheers to Mrs. Hasson for an impressive launch, I’m looking forward to seeing how FIGS evolves. – M
