Q: I take it as a sign of quality when something is made of real leather or wool, but my boyfriend's vegan principles prohibit him from wearing either material. He's in the market right now for a nice blazer or winter coat, and I'm hoping for some tips from you about where to find well-made, sharp-looking options that are wool/fur/leather free. Great shoes are another problem. Any ideas? --Emma
A: Emma, you're in luck. I've come across some great cruelty-free menswear options for your ethical guy. Express has an entire line of vegan outwear, while H&M's blazers are on my radar for style and animal-friendliness. I've also taken on the task of finding a casual boot and a dress shoe to go with each.
Moo Shoes, Vegetarian Shoes carry vegan shoes, while Zappos has a vegetarian shoe division.
Fellow W-G readers, feel free to chime in with any vegan brands you love.
