Hainsworth’s Doeskin fabric will be used by Joshua Kane in his latest collection of military coats.

The coats featuring Hainsworth’s fabric will go on sale in Joshua Kane’s flagship store in London and online next year. Joshua cut his teeth at some of Britain’s most respected menswear houses including Paul Smith and Burburry Prorsum before launching his label this year.
