Monocle features Hand and Jones
“I wanted to take a step back,” says Hand, whose previous project, womenswear brand Hand London, followed the fickle trends of the high street. For Hand & Jones, he has learned to steer clear of the rat race. Made in small runs of around 100 per item, the garments’ designs are simple, the quality is high and the neutral tones make for attire that can be worn and reworn – think pima-cotton T-shirts, Mongolian cashmere jumpers and scarves in forest greens and cool stone-greys. Collaborations with illustrators add some fun to the range (leopards and lions, no less) and for those who stay classy down to their briefs, a line of underwear is due to roll out in the coming months.
