Vincent Outfitting Co. was founded by four friends: Jesse, Eric, Mike and Kristin. After working, designing, traveling and shopping together for years, we decided to open a shop that embodied our passion for quality clothing made ethically and with our environment top of mind.
The negative effects of fast fashion are clear with the fashion industry now surpassing air travel in carbon impact, Vincent brings options for those who want quality over quantity, long-lasting over throw-away. At Vincent, you’ll find a curated selection of everyday apparel for men, as well as bags, outerwear, footwear, grooming products, and accessories.
Break it in, wear it out, and patch it up.
We carry brands and products that are meant to last.
Pieces you can pass down.
Commitment to Sustainability
There are many ways to talk about sustainability. To us it means thinking about clothing purchases consciously, and considering how that purchase will affect others and the environment, not just our wallets. At Vincent, the brands we choose to carry are the antithesis to fast-fashion. They put quality over quantity, and many have manufacturing here in the US. Others have made commitments to conservation efforts, reforestation, or simply to limit their environmental impact.
Over 85% of all clothing ends up in landfills, and the average American throws away approximately 80 pounds of clothing per person, per year. The impact on our environment is staggering. Being mindful about our clothing purchases – buying less, buying the best – is a better choice.
Synthetic clothing may take hundreds of years to decompose. That’s why we aim to carry garments made from natural fabrics, recycled fabrics, or renewable materials.
Ways you can help
- Don’t throw away old clothing. Almost all clothing and textiles are recyclable. Donate it to someone in need or recycle it. A few options for clothing recycling in Omaha include: Siena Francis House, Goodwill, Salvation Army, The Open Door Mission, and H&M.
- Buy fewer items you know you will wear.
- Buy quality items that last.
- Avoid synthetic materials that take years to decompose. Instead, look for fabrics like organic cotton, linen, silk, wool, renewable fabrics like hemp, or sustainably-made blends.
- Build your wardrobe around classic, versatile pieces.
- Support brands with commitments to sustainability and conservation.
- Encourage others to follow your lead.
