What is Dead White Mens Clothes?

When first waves of second-hand clothes arrived from “the west“ in the 70’s the locals could not believe that such high-quality clothing could just be given away for free, so they assumed that the previous owner must have died.

Dead White Mens Clothes is run independently by Jojo Gronostay. He founded the label in 2017.
