See our RSE / CSR page – buy responsibly!

Responsabilité Social des Entreprises RSE / Corporate Social Responsibility CSR

The reason that we started DOWNTOWN (Menswear New, 2ndhand and dépôt-vente Geneva), was to offer an alternative for you – partaking in being responsible through buying clothes that we source from manufacturers that abide by human rights, fair working conditions and manufacturing/factory codes; avoiding waste by choosing to buy second-hand or vintage clothes (in good shape!) also giving you the option also to sell your clothes through us; and by sourcing our own supplies to make our own socially responsible tshirts for you.


Notre marques avec RSE / Our brands with CSR:

  • American Apparel : sweat shop free factory downtown LA
  • April77 : vegan jeans
  • Armani : supply chain compliance
  • Lyle & Scott : factories with no child labour and fair working practices
  • Penfield : environmental responsibility
  • Switcher : made with respect since 1981 – FairWear foundation certified. Coming soon!

La raison que nous avons commencé DOWNTOWN (Menswear neuf, deuxième main et dépôt-vente à Genève), était d’offrir une alternative pour vous – participant à être responsable en achetant des vêtements qui nous nous approvisionnons auprès de fabricants qui respectent les droits de l’homme, les conditions de travail équitables et de la fabrication / codes d’usine, en évitant le gaspillage en choisissant d’acheter de deuxième main ou des vêtements vintage (en bonne forme!). Nous vous donnez aussi la possibilité de vendre vos vêtements chez nous, et en s’approvisionnant nos fournisseurs pour offrir nos propres T-shirts socialement responsables pour vous.
