Far Afield was founded in the UK by brothers, Mark & Chris Scholes in 2016. Together they have 12 years experience in menswear design, production, sourcing and retail. Mark started the menswear brands tuktuk and Madras Shirting Company over the last 10 years, whereas Chris opened the retail space Thread Menswear in Brighton in 2012. With their acquired skills across the menswear industry, they decided to combine forces back in 2014, and Far Afield is the result of that.
Far 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, the company takes these experiences and combines them with their passion for design. Far Afield is contemporary British menswear with a global inspiration.
