Maharishi Men's Clothing
Maharishi is a designer fashion brand famous for its utilitarian clothing and recognisable for its upcycled military pieces and oriental-inspired styles. Founded in the 1990s in London's Soho, Maharishi is a brand synonymous with ethically-produced quality clothing.
The range of Maharishi men's clothing includes coats and jackets, trousers, t-shirts, tops, jumpers and hoodies. Perhaps the most famous item in the Maharishi men's range is their combat trousers, as worn by David Beckham.
The designer price tag matches the clothing range's desirability, meaning top quality used items are highly sought after.
While there are some pieces that could be used as formal evening wear and smart work wear, the Maharishi style is more casual and ideal for a trip around town, or a day out with the boys.
A designer slant is put on to more casual items – such as embroidery onto military-style combat trousers and jeans, or oriental prints on to otherwise plain jackets and hooded sweatshirts.
Regular use is made of more ethical materials, which includes 100% organic cotton, and use of surplus military clothing. Where military surplus has been re-used, materials are ritually 'cleansed' to rid them of their military associations.
Carefully caring for your Maharishi men's clothing is advised. How you launder your items will depend on the individual piece, and you should consult the label for the appropriate cleaning instructions. Some items are made of 100% wool, so will need to be laundered carefully. It may be advisable to dry clean only certain items, such as jackets, because of the intricacy of the detailing.
Many Maharishi items contain buttons, studs, and zips which need to be maintained to prolong the life of the piece. If well looked after, a piece of Maharishi men's clothing should have a long life and will turn out to be a worthy wardrobe investment.
