Read’s Clothing Project is an American social business aimed at enabling education initiatives in Africa through the sale of stylish, well-made clothes. For every Read's product sold, the brand donates a book to a child in need through their partnership with Books for Africa.
The founder of Read's Clothing Project combined his vision of a clothing company dedicated to vintage-inspired and well-tailored clothes with his desire to involve himself in education initiatives across Africa in 2009.
Read's sells a variety of preppy-inspired chambray, gingham, oxford and madras shirts in several colors, in addition to a collection of ties made from linen, tweed and denim. Each piece of clothing comes with a lifetime guarantee and the company's titles program enables customers to suggest the book they would like to see donated.
Read's clothing is available through the brand's website, which also lists retail locations within the US and EU that stock the products.
