Adam Brown - Men's Style Council Member

Mr Adam Brown, photographer and founder of lifestyle label Orlebar Brown, is a well-travelled man. He was born in Malaysia and spent his early childhood between Hong Kong and Japan. After returning to college to study photography, Mr Brown worked as a portrait photographer for magazines and corporate clients before he had the idea to create tailored swim shorts, while on holiday in Rajasthan in 2005. After completing a three-day start-your-own-business course, a one-week drawing course and 18-months’ research, Mr Brown launched the business from his spare room in early 2007, starting with just 1,000 pairs of shorts and a storage unit in west London. The rest, as they say, is history.
