Odds & Ends Sale

February 14th, 2015

Odds2 closeouttext

We’ve added a few amazing items to our Odds & Ends section as the season comes to an end and colors are retired.  Now is a great time to pick up one of our Archival Rucksacks, Rolltops or Duffels at a special price. These unique colorways will disappear into the archives and will be replaced by new colors for 2015.  We’re also offering $50 off our Archival Waxed Down Vest on the remaining sizes and colors. This vest was a great seller for us this season and will not be restocked until next fall.  As seen in the NY Times!  Quantities are limited so don’t wait.

Shopping from the 1930s – Abercrombie A.C.A Pack

February 12th, 2015

Thanks to Andrew Short for sending us photos of his recent find, an Abercrombie & Fitch A.C.A. pack from the 1930s.  Ancestor to the Archival Rucksack and Archival Rolltop, the A.C.A. pack exhibits a simple yet sturdy design and  is made from some of our favorite  materials – waterproof duck and tanned leather.   Despite its age, the bag looks ready for another lifetime of active use.
