Jack Spade was founded in 1996 in a loft on Warren Street with the idea that in a streamlined, fast paced city like New York, simplicity is the
ultimate sophistication and everything a man needs can be both utilitarian and stylish.
Our first bags were timelessly modern and not too precious. We used waxed cotton and heavy canvases. We put those bags in hardware stores, where
people who needed a solid, sturdy bag would find then. While they were designed for city life, they were appreciated by men who refused to choose
between something that looks good and works well.
To mark our 21st anniversary, we're getting back to our roots with 16 heritage styles available year-round,
each designed to improve with age and gain character with time.
That's a good way to live.
VIII. The Dipped Coal Bag
One of our earliest bags is aunique riff off a stule originally designed in the 1920s for carrying up to 100 pounds of coal
from hopper to furnace. We thought it as pretty much perfect. How we made it better: 24-ounce industrial weight canvas,
a detachable shoulder strap and an internal zip organization pocket, color blocked for a unique look.
IX. The Water Resistant Trench
Our three-season signature waxwear trench, when combined with our quilted PrimaLoft button-out liner vest,
becomes your year-round one: together, it lasts through harsh New York winters toastily.
