I have a few items of FCUK clothing, such as jumpers and T-Shirts, they are not made from wool or silk but I am curious as to whether FCUK are ethical or not.

Anyone know?

Thanks,

John.

When I was living in Essex it was like a uniform ;)

My essex boy housemate who owned no less than 11 pairs of blue jeans had a whole slection of white fcuk tshirts. Kinda put me off the idea :)

according to Ethical Consumer magazine, http://www.ethicalconsumer.org/magazine/buyers/clothes/clothes.pdf they're not one of the worst offenders for using sweatshops but they do have factories in China, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, which are apparently "oppressive regimes" and not exactly known for their human rights records. they also get black marks against them for "other animal rights" (it doesn't specify what), their environmental reporting and their code of conduct, although most companies on that list do.

seems they're not particularly ethical, but they could be worse.

Not sure about the ethics but it's a general issue Chav Uniform.

FCUK has sold fur when it was in fashion, which is reason enough never to shop there. Plus the chav factor
