Contrary to popular belief, not ALL students are boozy layabouts called Tarquin who spend their days playing Fifa and speaking loudly on the 42 bus. Okay, most of them are, but some of them actually do something worthwhile with all that spare time — like the people behind A Kind Of Guise, for example. Whilst most of their classmates were constructing sofas out of Foster’s cans and wandering around with traffic cones on their heads, this lot were busy making clothes. A few years later and they’re a fully-fledged operation.
Based in Munich, this lot make pretty much everything that is good in the world, from fancy knitwear to bomber jackets. It’s slick, it’s most definitely European and it’s all ridiculously well-made too — a welcome addition to the Oi Polloi rails.
