«De Bonne Facture’: a French phrase to describe a work of quality, be it a piece of art, literature or an object.»

De Bonne Facture is an understated men's wardrobe designed to last through time. We aim to build a library of clothes that will live and age with their owner, telling his story. Edition after edition, we revisit menswear essentials, with special attention to fabric, cut and quality of make. We source natural fabrics with authentic textures, carefully working with specialist mills. Our care for details can be seen inside as well as outside the garment. Horn buttons from the Jura mountains, fineness of stitching, precise seams, and finishes. 

We believe that the way a garment is made gives it a special soul. 

We have selected specialist French and north Italian ateliers to manufacture our pieces, developing strong ties with each of them. Tailoring, shirting, knitting, tie-making, each has its know-how, often family-owned, they have a story to tell. 

Therefore each of our pieces comes with a hangtag with the name, location, and history of the atelier that made it. A gauge of quality.
