The Olive Canvas Explorer Jacket by Disorder. We handcraft every jacket individually in our Birmingham, UK studio. We use high quality khaki green canvas to make this jacket.
After you place your order, we will make up your jacket, totally bespoke to your particular requirements. A lengthy process we lay and cut the fabric individually for every jacket, as you would in a high end ‘Saville Row’ tailor. Next, the same skilled tailor, will conscientiously make up your Explorer Jacket, from start to finish. We believe all these steps are important as they ensure our clothing retain an authentic artisan feel. As a result, you will receive the best product possible, with design and manufacturing integrity. Fundamentally, this is inline with our slow fashion ethos. The Explorer Jacket is part of our new collection inspired by Great British adventurers.

Disorder Slow fashion brand
In order to ensure our customers receive a high quality, unique ‘slow fashion’ garment. Disorder has created their own vertically integrated, sustainable, fashion ecosystem. We believe this is important at it allows us to fully trace our garments provenance. Subsequently giving our customers the confidence that we make each Disorder garment as ethical and sustainable as possible.
You can rely on Disorders slow fashion credentials because ethical standards are upheld along the whole of the supply chain. We also make as many of our garments in house as possible. The reason is simple as This is to ensure we can keep a close eye on how our garments are made. On the rare occasion where we have to use an external supplier, we insist they are certified sustainable and organic. Furthermore, they need to hold the necessary accreditations from independent bodies and standards. Each of these certifications demonstrate that they are working towards building healthy environmental practices and greater respect for the planet, every step of the way.
Disorder was established in Birmingham, UK in 1998, with sustainability at our core. The idea for the label came out of our love of the nineties dance scene combined with the desire to put our ideals and ideas into practice. We applied our academic roots, in politics, anthropology, international development and fine art, into a sustainable business. Disorder was hence born out of a need to bring experimental clothing to the blossoming late ninties UK club scene. Disorder’s style was is a fusion between oriental styling, Italian cut, with a subversive British edge.
Slow fashion is the opposite to fast fashion and part of the “slow movement“, which advocates for manufacturing in respect to people, environment and animals. As such, contrary to industrial fashion practices, slow fashion involves local artisans and the use of eco-friendly materials. Ultimately, the goal of slow fashion is to preserve skills, crafts and the environment, and to provide value to both consumers and producers.
