The evolution to the everyday came when founder Monte Goldman’s son Mark convinced his father in ’76 to begin manufacturing a line of daypacks especially for consumers. The collection, sold under the Eastpak name was soon a firm favourite among the alternative thinkers across college and university campuses.
Model Scott Barnhill stars in fall’s latest lookbook for Eastpak.
Eastpak was the first brand to use Cordura (designed specifically for military/extended outdoor use and known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs) to make its packs – making them tougher, stronger and better value for money, because they lasted longer. They also pioneered wild colours and bold prints - making their bags fun and fashionable. Today Eastpak’s range includes bags, apparel and accessories (all touting a 30 year warranty) that combine style, utility and value for money.
The latest selection includes seven new designs available in three different color and fabric options. Made from durable parachute cloth mixed in with leather and cotton, these oversize boho-fresh bags are macho and practical at the same time.
