2023 Sustainable Menswear Startup

Green Suit

As the co-founder of Commonwealth Proper, Craig von Schroeder thinks men look best in a well-tailored suit. But as the brains behind his new Spring Garden-based Green Suit, he knows the fellas look even better in eco-friendly threads. Enter his Greenflex fabric — made with 35 percent recycled plastic bottles and 65 percent American cotton, all of which is completely traceable. The made-to-order suits are sophisticated-casual, with unstructured fits and utilitarian pockets, and they’re so fresh that the biz landed a collaboration with the United Nations on its sustainability efforts.
