One of the great British labels of the last few years was Tuk Tuk. 
 
Primarily a shirt brand, it made sleek button-downs using psychedelic fabrics sourced in Sri Lanka. Its closure in 2016 was a sad day for independently-minded tailoring fans. 
 
Happily, the brothers behind the label (and the excellent Thread menswear shop in Brighton), Mark and Chris Scholes, are back with a new brand: Afield. 
 
For those with a mod sensibility, Afield is absolutely where it’s at. The A/W collection mixes cosy knits with patterned shirting (Tuk Tuk lives on!) and beautifully cut outwear (we’re big fans on the Afield crombie). There’s also blazers, ski jumpers and overshirts thrown into the mix. 
 
The brand says: “Afield is heavily influenced by global travel – it is the colours, textures, sights and experiences. Be it a rainy city in England, or a tropical setting in a far away land, we take these experiences and combine them with our passion for design. Afield is contemporary British menswear with a global inspiration.”
 
Another plus point is the ethos behind the company, which ensures the wellbeing of the people who make its clothes, something far larger brands could learn from. 
 
“We take a conscious approach to sourcing products from reliable and ethically sound suppliers,” says Afield. “All clothing and accessories are sourced globally, with a dedication to high quality and ethics. We work with a variety of factories in both Europe and Sri Lanka, where we pay regular visits to ensure that our expectations of high standards are met.”
 
With clothing that looks great, and a philosophy that goes beyond the bottom line, Afield is a very modern, very mod men’s label. Glad to see you back, gentlemen.
