    DESCRIPTION

    Our tee is a great alternative to the standard jersey t-shirt.

    HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR FABRIC + PLACE YOUR ORDER:

    1. Choose your fabric by heading to our instagram fabric gallery 

    Each fabric has a reference number & details of which of our designs + sizes it is suitable for. Comment on the instagram post or email us via info@theemperorsoldclothes.co.uk to reserve it – we generally only have enough of each fabric for 1-2 garments so this step is really important!

    2. Place your order here – double-check you have the correct garment style.

    Your fabric reservation lasts for 72 hours so please place your order during this time otherwise the fabric will become available to other customers.

    Important: make sure to write your size, sleeve preference + fabric reference number in the order notes when you are entering your payment details.

    3. Sit back, make a cup of tea + get excited about your one of a kind garment!

    GARMENT DETAILS:

    With a comfortable design, this tee finishes just above the hip. Handmade from scratch in your choice of fabric.

    WAYS TO WEAR:

    Our tees looks great with our high-waisted trousers and cropped jackets.

    This tee is super comfortable to wear and looks great paired with a skirt or high waisted jeans.

    When the months are colder pair with high-waisted trousers and cute cardigan.

    Pair with jeans + trainers for dressed down days. Dress it up for the evening with classic black jeans or one of our pencil skirts and your favourite heels.

    Feel good fashion! This tee will be created by our all female team in our Brighton studio for a living wage. Every piece we make is totally unique and will not be reproduced.

    Gorgeous blue liberty v-neck dress

    March 27, 2020

    I’d been eyeing Emperor’s insta for a while, hoping I could purchase a design your own piece. When the coveted blue liberty floral fabric came available, I jumped at the opportunity to get a beautifully crafted v-neck dress made. I’ve received lots of compliments and can honestly say it is one of my fave pieces in the closet. Thank you so much!

    Beautiful dungarees!

    March 19, 2020

    I bought a pair of Emperor’s Old Clothes’ dungarees in Godiva in Edinburgh and I couldn’t recommend them more! They are so beautifully made and the material is so lovely. Lovely and comfy to wear and so unique. I definitely recommend supporting this fab small business! 🙂

    Literally Obsessed

    March 6, 2020

    When I discovered Emperor’s Clothes I fell in love, and I fell hard! I have a pair of shorts, trousers and a culottes set. Each one is so unique, fits me ABSOLUTELY perfectly, and makes me feel incredibly special every time I wear them. You can tell so much love and care go into these pieces, and that they care about their customers.

    Great quality and fit

    March 6, 2020

    My first pair of Emperor’s clothes are the dungarees made in collaboration with designers Yuk Fun. They are such high quality and I love the cut and style. Such a great addition to my wardrobe, and it’s wonderful to know I’m supporting such an ethical and principled company.

    I love this brand so much!

    March 5, 2020

    After following them on Instagram for some time, I finally ordered a pair of ‘design your own’ trousers last month. I got my measurements slightly wrong at first, so the trousers didn’t quite fit when I got them, but it was so easy to sort – I sent them a quick message on Instagram and they got me to send the trousers back so they could alter them free of charge. I’ve now got the trousers back again, in the correct size, and they fit beautifully. Even better, I know that the team really cares about sustainability, ethics and so much more, and I’m proud to wear trousers they’ve made.

    want to waer them all the time

    February 21, 2020

    As someone with a not average body type (big bum and thick thighs, average waist) It is such a novelty to have a pair of trousers that fit so well. They were super patient with me through the design process as I was quite indecisive about the fabric. The finished product is more amazing than I expected. They fit beautifully and I want to wear them all the time! They are more expensive than I would normally be able to pay for clothes, I had them as a gift. I was willing to pay though as I love the Emperors ethos, and having received them I will 100% be saving up for another piece!

    In Love

    November 7, 2019

    I received my design-your-own pencil skirt about a week ago, and I am in love. It fits perfectly, the design is flawless and the ordering process was so simple. (The skirt is royal blue wool, warm and cozy and CUTE!) I found started following TEOC Instagram 6 months to a year ago, and waited so long contemplating what to get. Finally made a purchase and now I’m already ordering a pair of trousers. Cecily and the crew are amazing people. I have so much respect for their mission, and I’m excited to help support.

    Playful yet chic Pinafore

    August 13, 2019

    My pinafore dress arrived today and I have spent the entire day with a huge beam on my face. I have purchased from TEOC several times before however I have only ever bought semi formal items with the intention of wearing them for a special occasion. This time I splashed out on a piece I am certain I will wear over and over again. I want to thank the team for somehow creating such a wonderfully playful yet sophisticated dress. I feel comfortable lounging around in this as it fits to a T but I can still breathe! I also love that I can hide away under the never ending circular skirt when I’m curling up on the sofa then when I stand up the material hangs perfectly in a really flattering way so I’m sure I’ll feel super confident when I go out and about and show it off! I also love how I don’t feel so guilty buying clothes when I buy from TEOC – it’s so much better knowing you are promoting sustainability whilst also enjoying purchasing beautiful quality clothes. Thanks so much team, I am really over the moon.

    So happy with my custom Nathalie dresses!

    July 31, 2019

    I couldn’t resist getting twp custom Nathalie shift dresses after falling in love with some fabrics on their instagram account. The process to order a custom dress was easy (as long as you have your correct measurements). They arrived a few weeks later and I love them! I’m plus size, so it can be hard to find a shift dress that fits well–but when it’s made to measure, they fit perfectly! I cannot wait to wear them and encourage you to support awesome, women owned and sustainable businesses!

    Softest to the Touch and even Cuter to Wear

    June 9, 2019

    I was inspired to buy my first Emperor’s Old Clothes garment by someone who had customized their own playsuit in my city in Canada. After sorting through the fabrics I found a design/material I thought would make an amazing playsuit. I know that I gave my exact measurements, but when it arrived I was still blown away by how the playsuit fit me absolutely perfectly. And the material I had chosen was so soft to the touch. The prettiest custom piece I could have ever wished for. Excited for adding more garments of this quality to my wardrobe
