Basic Rights was launched in 2016 by guitarist Freddie Cowan to make staples with an attention to detail

Basic Rights


  • We focus on fabric, fit and finish
  • We make pieces that bring a wardrobe together
  • We’re committed to working with the best, from tailors with decades of experience to renowned mills and factories committed to treating their workers ethically
  • We believe in style over fashion
  • We believe clothes should be lived in
  • We believe there are more important things to life than what we wear


Basic Rights was founded in NYC and is designed in London.
