Coffee with Kestin Hare the other day.
Mr inspiration, his venture Common people also source and manufacture their garments in Britain and they’re up for a nomination at the Scottish Fashion Awards.
Common People is designed for people with a common interest in premium clothing and footwear. Created by Kestin Hare, former head of design at Nigel Cabourn, Common People is now entering its fourth season. Common People represents a movement back to provenance and focuses on exceptional quality, craftsmanship and local sourcing to create a contemporary product with a purist identity.
After leaving Cabourn, where he gained invaluable experience in manufacturing premium clothing in the UK, Kestin returned to Edinburgh in October 2010 to establish his own brand Common People. Common People has progressed over two years and is now showcasing at Capsule Paris and NYC, Projects in Las Vegas and Jacket Required and wholesaling to the likes of Cruise and Urban Outfitters in the UK. The brand has also expanded to sell in Asian stockists including Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and Journal Standard in Japan.
And yes that is a pair of white cahoonas 75 trunks on the table.
Cahoonas' mission is to improve male comfort through superior design innovation and style
