Universal Works is headed by David Keyte, a top bloke with over 20 years’ experience in the industry. David spent ten years at Paul Smith, five at Marharishi and has worked closely with both Margaret Howell and Albam. At a certain point, David realised he was, "Less interested in fashion and more in the function, fit and cut of garments.” Wanting to explore this further, he decided the best way was to set up a label of his own. Universal Works has been set up with the aim of producing good honest menswear — well made, well considered and easy to wear.
