Yasar, co-founder of A Kind of Guise, has started Vegas well at the tables. He also tells us the name of his company comes from watching The Wanderers and then having an idea of creating for a certain type of guy. His vision hits ours too.

Where are you from?

Munich, Germany.

How did you start?

It started with a small bag collection. We bought leather from a medicine ball manufacturer from Italy and made a small leather duffle bag collection. The demand was there, so we continued. The second collection included some shirts and pants. And, since then (2 years ago) that has been the model.

What are the key features of your brand?

Everything is produced in Germany. That is the main thing. We try to keep things as local as possible to support where we are from. We take care of function, quality, and promote classic and simple item.s

What’s it like being part of PROJECT 10?

A pleasure. It is our first time in the United States. We’ve met many creative and inspiring people here.

Finally, what is your favorite thing about Vegas?

That I won $180. My first time ever on roulette.
