Brave GentleMan does things differently. They embrace a slow-fashion production model where they invest in sustainable innovation, superior vegan materials, ethical labor & classic styles made with quality. Founder Joshua Katcher is a fashion instructor at Parsons The New School. He is currently writing his first book, FASHION ANIMALS, and has lectured on that topic at various universities. Katcher started the first men’s ethical lifestyle website, The Discerning Brute in 2008 and stemming from that in 2010 he launched the Brave GentleMan label.
