About a decade ago, I went shopping for some hemp clothing. I’d heard all about the social and practical advantages of the fabric, and wanted to be an upstanding global citizen. Unfortunately, all the clothes I found came in two categories:
- Clothes worn only by the patchouli and bongo drum set.
- Decent looking clothes too expensive for my university budget.
I haven’t gone hemp since then, but I may try again. There was this article (decaying link) in the Sun last week advocating hemp clothing from local vendors like Hemptown and Tilley Endurables (a store surely rife with pleated trousers). These days, you can get hemp flip flops, jeans and Adidas shoes. Does you have any suggestions for the virginal hemp buyer?
