We are so excited to have worked on another project up-cycling the iconic Chuck 70's, transforming formal menswear attire and giving the classic garment a new life. A series of discarded striped shirts were sourced, graded and cut for the collection, reshaping the nostalgia associated with classic office wear to create a unique summer capsule, with breathable, lightweight upper.
This marks our sixth collaboration with Converse, as part of the Converse Renew project, where we can re-imagine the possibilities of 'new'.
Following the latest Converse Renew Upcycled Fleece collection in February, we sourced a classic formal staple for a fresh drop of upcycled Chuck 70s & for the first time, Jack Purcell, arriving in time for warmer spring weather. This ongoing partnership as part of Converse’s ongoing Renew programme which continues to champion used as an input to new, driving forward the possibilities of post-consumer waste in the fashion industry.

With an array of nuanced details that are as distinct as the striped garments themselves, no two pairs in this limited-edition capsule are exactly alike. Converse Renew Upcycled Shirts are available in London and select retailers across Western Europe beginning April 1, 2022.
“With striped shirts we can change what a suiting garment means to an audience, and we’re excited to continue finding sustainable solutions at scale for the Converse Renew project while expanding the process to additional classics within their footwear portfolio,”
