Universal Works began its life in 2008 by David Keyte. His aim to was make real, honest clothing based on fit and good design, although never over-designed. Universal Works was largely inspired by Keyte’s formative years growing up in a provincial midlands town in the seventies, part of a working class family that loved to dress well. He grey up with his Dad and Uncles in their work-wear, and then in their weekend attire; Keyte wanted to merge the two styles. Universal Works strives and succeeds to produce well designed, carefully manufactured everyday garms, produced to last.
