Folk was founded in 2001 by Scottish born Cathal McAteer. Cathal started his journey into fashion at Glasgow’s iconic 80’s store Ichi Ni San, moving from shop store assistant to buyer.
He then moved to London where he started the label.
Rather than being led by seasonal trends, Folk clothing focuses on finding the perfect shape, colour and fabric for each piece, ensuring Folk menswear carries a distinct brand identity without compromising on their classic and wearable style.
Perfectly simple but finished to the highest quality, Folk clothing is renowned for its attention to the finer details. Buttons made from crushed sea shells? i mean if that isn’t attention to detail what is?
As well as clothing, they also now do ceramics, iPhone cases and furniture.
Folk now has 5 stores as well as a shop in shop at Liberty in London.
Folk is available at the following online stores
