Les Deux is an international menswear and community brand that was established by two friends in 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark. It all began through sheer chance, when a preppy guy from the suburbs of Copenhagen met an urban soul with roots in the former French-colonized Congo. The Two immediately hit it off, and discussion turned to the white T-shirt with unusual military patches that had been sourced and sewn on by one of the pair. Two contrasts met. A duality was forged. And Les Deux was born. This T-shirt has become a symbol of the desire to build a brand that creates communities rather than just clothing, proving that through passion and cooperation, you can make the impossible, possible.
Community is all
Since that first autumn evening over a decade ago, everything Les Deux has done has been underpinned with that community mentality. This means that we stand together through the good times and the bad. We celebrate each other’s success. We give a helping hand to those who need it. And we create an environment that people want to be a part of. As we have grown into an internationally recognized brand, this foundation has expanded to include not just our internal team, but also our customers, partners, agents, clients, and everyone in between. Through collaboration, we have a vision to build Les Deux into the meaningful and impactful menswear brand.
Building a Legacy
We are ambitious. But we don't believe success should come at the expense of our values. Our ambition exists precisely because of our vision to make an impact. Through our Legacy platform, we make a difference to the lives of people in the communities where we are present. This includes a range of locations – with social and charitable projects in places as diverse as our home market of Denmark to production sites like Turkey. Legacy also serves to ensure that we are creating clothing that is more responsible from an ethical and sustainability perspective. A pressing issue for the fashion industry, and the world, we’re determined to be part of the solution, rather than part of the problem.
