Community of Crafters: Luke mcgarry
M.C.O's Community of Crafters is a collective of individuals and groups that embody the shared values that have driven our brand for 100+ years. Together, we strive to provide inspiration and a "lead by example" approach, through a contemporary lens whilst also demonstrating our community in hard-wearing, versatile, everyday staples - built to resist.
Luke McGarry is an award-winning, Manchester-born, LA-based cartoonist, illustrator, animator, musician.
“I’ve been a fan since 2017, so a pair M.C.O. trousers or their famous coach jacket is not an unusual feature in my day-to-day wear". At Wondercon in Anaheim, CA, Luke was kitted out in M.C. Overalls exclusively to not only exemplify the motto ‘We Work Hard’, but also, as Luke mentions "...to show that you can wear their gear whilst just sitting around drawing cartoons. Haha.”
“M.C.O. and I are embarking on a bit of creative collaboration together, and where better to start than with a comic delineating how I came across, and subsequently fell in love with, M.C. Overalls’ colourful, gender-neutral workwear.”
"M.C.O is an iconic UK workwear brand that’s been around since 1908. Luke McGarry is a UK-born cartoonist who hasn’t been around quite as long but is equally legendary in his field (yes, Luke wrote this and is refusing to edit it.)"
