Pascal is wearing a shirt made in Portugal, bought in France. It has 10% organic cotton. His shoes are on loan from his brother, “espadrilles” made in France. Espadrilles from the Pyrenees are made of canvas and are a summer staple of French wardrobes. The upper is canvas or fabric. The bottom was originally made of Jute, or more recently, rubber fashioned to look like Jute. Pascal is standing in front of an old hand-pump well. The French building behind dates from the 15 Century A.D.
The Style-Diet Shot celebrates individuals with unique style, wearing at least one article of clothing acquired via the Stephens’ Sisters Shopping Diet. It must be local, sustainable, second-hand/re-purposed, inherited or ethically produced. If you can’t find clothing fitting that criteria then it must be from a country with stellar human rights records.
