This is probably old news for a lot of you, but I couldn’t let this one go by. It looks like Joshua Katcher of The Discerning Brute is starting his own online shop called Brave Gentleman. It is a high-fashion site, selling everything from clothes to accessories to beauty products. All products are certified by Mr. Katcher to be cruelty-free, and sustainably produced in fair labor conditions.
Of course, there are shoes! Novacas is the manufacturer of this first collaboration, featuring “thicker, tougher, and eco-superior faux-leather and faux-suede, made fairly in Portugal, and cruelty-free – this capsule collection is tailored, cool, and inspired by workers, masterminds, and defenders.”
Say what you will about the styles, but you have to give credit where it’s due. These shoes look like they are super high quality, and obviously a lot of thought has been put in to designing them. The price is a little steep – $230 to $300, but if you pre-order online before June 30, you can save $20. Also available is an Olsen Haus oxford shoe called Time Traveler.
