The Grandad Company is a closed-loop upcycling brand whose mission is to breathe life into reclaimed vintage menswear for a new unisex generation. Rooted by the love and admiration for Grandads, founder and designer Jess Grech adopted her philosophy and core values from her stylish grandad. The brand uses her Grandad's un-wanted items and combines them with vintage clothing her Grandad would wear, to create a limited edition item that could never be made again. Today’s Sponsor:
