Brave GentleMan Releases Shoe Made From Waste-Diverted Materials
Vegan menswear brand Brave GentleMan just launched a new handcrafted shoe made out of waste-diverted cotton and polyester, aptly named Revenant.
Brave GentleMan launched in 2010, becoming the first vegan lifestyle menswear brand in the world. When you preorder the new Revenant shoes not only do you get 20% off but the preorder system helps the company estimate the demand for the shoes, minimizing waste.
“Ethical fashion’ is not an aesthetic. It is a methodology. Brave GentleMan simply applies this method to classic menswear aesthetics. We don’t believe animals belong in the fashion production system or any industrial system for that matter," said in the company's manifesto.
The materials used to create these shoes are minimally impactful, vegan, recycled, organic, and high-tech sustainable materials. The Revenant sneaker comes in a variety of color combinations including:
- Red and Gray
- Gray, Green and Neon Orange
- Navy and Neon Yellow
- Gray, Gum and Blue
- Brown and Black Stripe
- Gray and Neon Pink
Celebrities including Alan Cumming and Liam Hemsworth have been seen wearing Brave GentleMan. “Brave GentleMan does things differently. We embrace a slow-fashion production model. We resist industry-induced ‘seasons’. We invest in sustainable innovation, superior vegan materials, ethical labor and Classic styles made with quality,” as described on the company's website.
