About Us

Our Story

Man Gun Bear was launched in 2012 by Tony Carr with a simple intention – to share and encourage a passion for traditional British craftsmanship and the very best materials. With a background in product design and experience ranging from high-end fashion to the aerospace sector, Tony was left frustrated by the lack of manufacturing in the UK and so set about building a brand he could believe in.

 From humble beginnings in the garden shed, we can now be found in a purpose-built workshop in the New Forest, part of the south coast’s bustling creative industry. Our small team make all items to order in-house using high quality, sustainably sourced raw materials [leather, wood and metals]. We have developed a range of sophisticated suit, desk and travel accessories that celebrate skilled craftsmanship and intricate detail, including engraved solid brass cufflinks and personalised handmade leather wallets.

Our personalised men’s accessories make unique one-of-a-kind gifts suitable for anniversaries, Father’s Day, birthdays and Christmas. The range of cufflinks and collar stiffeners make popular gifts for groomsmen, while our luxury leather travel accessories are perfect for business trips and holidays.

Manufacturing values

Handcrafted to perfection in our workshop in the New Forest. We use a combination of traditional techniques and modern technologies, hand stitching, stamping and burnishing our leather wallets, while laser engraving and machine finishing our solid metal cufflinks. Our work celebrates British craftsmanship and timeless design.

Each product is individually stitched, sanded, oiled and packaged and is put through a rigorous quality control check to ensure premium customer satisfaction.

Caring for the environment

Man Gun Bear not only advocates the growth of beards but also the planting of trees as a registered member of The Woodland Trust, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity. Materials are sustainably sourced and all UK cowhide leather is a bi-product of the dairy and food industry.

While the natural character of our materials ensures every product is different from the next, the addition of personalisation and individual serial numbers makes each one distinctly unique. We offer traditionally debossed initials on our leather accessories and engraved personal messages on our cufflinks – a subtle reminder that our products are made with you in mind.
