What is a Vegan Suit?

At King & Allen we pride ourselves on offering top-quality suits that meet our customer’s needs and wants.

As a vegan, buying clothing is often a difficult task, with many manufacturers using animal products in their merchandise. This may bring to mind materials such as wool, silk and cashmere but there are some that may not immediately come to mind such as horsehair and reindeer horn.

The world of bespoke tailoring can be hard to navigate, with so many different elements to take into consideration. With this in mind, we explore the various options available for vegans and outline our approach to vegan suiting.

Vegan Cloths

Being vegan shouldn't mean you have to compromise on cloth quality. Vegan cloths are actually becoming a frequent choice across the board for our clients.  


We absolutely love this gorgeously soft fabric. It comes in a range of patterns and colours and doesn’t crease like linen or cotton. In our opinion this is the cloth that looks and feels most like wool.

Linen and Cotton

Cotton and linen are both comfortable, breathable fabrics that are the obvious choice for a summer suit. They offer a tailored, yet relaxed look which is reminiscent of the ‘The Great Gatsby’ whilst also being vegan-friendly.

Velvet  (left image)

This might not seem like the obvious choice but it can make a statement. Made from a cotton/modal blend and available in a range of colours, this is a great choice for a sports jacket or other standalone pieces.

Eco Cloth  (right image)

This gorgeous new fabric has one of the lowest carbon footprints globally and is made from 100% used PET bottles. The manufacturing methods used are eco-friendly, using bio-fuels rather than fossil fuels for generating steam. The manufacturing implements a zero waste concept, meaning that all the material is either used or sold in-market.


Discover & Order Fabrics

We have hundreds of vegan cloths to choose from, covering all types of occasion. You can request up to 5 free suit fabric swatches on our Find Your Fabric page.


Vegan Linings

The lining on your suit is an important addition to the overall look and is a chance to show off some of your personality.

Alternatives that Suit

Some linings are made from silk or silk blends, which are not vegan. An alternative to these would be viscose.

Cupro is another option. Made from a cotton fibre, it has a silky feel, is durable and, as a bonus, is totally biodegradable.

We offer a vast range of viscose and cupro linings from Huddersfield Fine Worsteds. They are available in plain colours or in a huge array of patterns. Pick your favourite!

Vegan Buttons

The details matter when it comes to building your vegan garment.

Amazing Corozo Nut

Something that a lot of people don’t consider, when looking for a vegan suit, are the buttons. The options usually include horn buttons, which are made from animal horn or mother of pearl, made from the inner layer of shells. Neither of these would be a viable choice for vegans.

There are a few alternatives available, including a range of man-made materials. Our favourite are the buttons made from the Corozo nut. Corozo buttons each have a unique look to them, thanks to the grain of the nut, meaning that no two buttons will be the same. A small detail that would make your vegan suit extra special.

The grain of the corozo nut means that each button is as unique as an individual fingerprint.


Suits are often constructed using horsehair, but we can provide vegan alternatives. To find out more, book an appointment here.

Total Transparency

While many will focus on the material of the suit, a lot of people aren’t aware that animal products are used in the construction. At King & Allen, we are totally transparent when it comes to the construction of our vegan suits and can guarantee that no animal products are used.

When looking for a vegan suit, we suggest that you ask your tailoring consultant about the following:

  • Is the canvas (the inner structure of the suit) made from horsehair? If so, be sure to ask for a synthetic canvas.
  • Are the shoulder pads vegan, as they often contain wool?

The Melton (the piece of cloth underneath your jacket collar) is often made from wool. You can either choose to have the Melton made from the same fabric as your suit, or from a synthetic alternative.
