Universal Works produce contemporary menswear. The company began life in 2008 with David Keyte (UW co-founder, director, designer) working from his kitchen table with an aim to make real, honest clothing based on fit and good design, though never over designed. Universal Works was inspired by David’s formative years growing up in a provincial midlands town in the seventies, part of a working class family that loved to dress well; seeing his Dad and Uncles in their work-wear and also when dressing for the weekend. Next, working as a sign-writers apprentice, whilst experiencing the development of eighties sporting and music subcultures. And finally a thirty-year span in the fashion industry. From Paul Smith to Maharishi he gained an education from and worked alongside some of the best in the industry.
A best seller from day one, this classic semi-slim chino is Universal Works most versatile, simple pant. Whether it’s match day, Sunday service, or a quiet one down the local, the relaxed taper of the Aston is perfect for almost any occasion. They are particularly comfortable in cotton twill; a sturdy yet simple fabric that wears extremely well.
