Designer Kane's new line uses Hainsworth's Doeskin fabric
Aug '15
Joshua Kane, who has been described as 'London's definitive neo-dandy tailor', has used Hainsworth's iconic Doeskin fabric in his new collection of military coats.

According to a Hainsworth press release, his cropped military jacket has already been given glowing reviews by both Vogue and GQ magazine after it was unveiled at London Collections:Men.

The coats featuring Hainsworth's fabric will go on sale in Joshua Kane's Flagship Store in Brushfield Street, London and online from February next year.

Joshua cut his teeth at some of Britain's most respected menswear houses including Paul Smith, Jaeger and Burburry Prorsum before launching his eponymous label in January 2014.

Joshua Kane said, “I have been a huge Hainsworth fan since I sampled their fabrics when I worked at Paul Smith and Burberry. Now that I've got my own company it was an obvious choice to use their fabrics.”

“As a trained tailor, I love working with 100 per cent wool and balancing the traditional elements of fabrics and patterns with more dynamic cuts, shapes and styling,” he added.

“The most important thing about Hainsworth's Doeskin is its stability and it has real weight to it, which gives it durability, strength and makes it incredibly long lasting,” Kane observed.

Hainsworth's Doeskin is made from 100 per cent Merino wool and is tightly milled with a twill weave and face finish.

Hainsworth's marketing manager Julie Greenough said, “The Doeskin fabric is beautifully simplistic yet stylish and elegant.”

“This fabric is brought to life through the very detailed approach that we take in selecting the best quality fibres, combined with the years of processing knowledge and expertise,” she noted.

Hainsworth said it is increasingly working with a number of leading high fashion designers, who include Christopher Raeburn, Jenny Schwarz, Jackie Lee, A Sauvage and Baartmans & Siegel. (AR)
