Have you ever ditched the scheduled programme of a school or university trip and wandered off with someone to explore the city by yourselves? That’s basically how Ben and Matthew, the founders of Cottweiler, met. They were both enrolled in a fashion design course in Bristol, but it wasn’t until an excursion to Paris that they bonded over their taste in music and their dislike of following other people's rules. A few years later, they founded Cottweiler.
In May, they met with our editor-in-chief Martin to talk about that trip to Paris, combining sportswear and tailoring, winning the Woolmark Prize in 2017, their best party stories, and, of course, about their collection The Lost Art of Cruising.
