INTRODUCING East Harbour Suplus

After personally purchasing 4 items from East Harbour Surplus last year, we just had to bring it in.

Launched in 2008, the Italian-Korean brand East Harbor Surplus takes much of its inspiration from historical, vintage references. It was founded by Han Taemin, who worked as a menswear designer in Florence, and by production manager Fabrizio Vanni. 

Having worked together four years prior, the combination of these two inspirations is the main driver of the brand which reinterprets vintage military and naval styles to be worn in every day life, according to seasons with tailoring that can be best done in Italy. 

The label name, East Harbour Surplus, is based on sea travel ("East Harbour") and on military clothing ("Surplus"), which was shipped by sea from the East Harbour. All garments are designed to give the impression of "previously worn" textures using "fabric dyed" and "garment dyed" techniques. 

The company is based in Florence, and most production takes place in Tuscany. We are proud to be the first North American stockist of the brand.
