Welcome to The Retro Clothing Line, aka TRCL. The company was founded in 2020 by Harrison and Izzy during lockdown, though the idea was born a long time before that. The url was bought back when they were both at school but lockdown gave them both the opportunity to start figuring out a way to make it happen, and nearly two years on, here we are!
The motivation for starting TRCL is pretty clear. It’s our response to the climate crises and the massive toll the textile industry is taking on our planet. We believe that people should have the option to buy a whole wardrobe of second hand clothes, reducing the amount of landfill and reducing the demand for new clothes. Fashion trends are circular and just because an item feels ‘out of trend’ doesn’t mean it won’t come right back around again. We take the chance to rescue these clothes, before they go to landfill.
Our aim is to be a one stop shop for everyone and all types of clothing. For now, we focus on the basics, with our best selling Mystery Box and Winter Basics Box launching soon. You can find us on Instagram and Tiktok, sharing our journey to making sustainability fashion!
