All products from East Harbour Surplus
Those who follow Dapper will have already had a glimpse of the brand this summer with their collaboration with Catchball (for EHX x Catchball super sneakers). Originally, the East Harbour Surplus brand (or EHS for the intimate) was founded in 2008 by the Korean Han Taemin and the Italian Fabrizio Vanni. They are based in Florence and are inspired by military surplus clothing by reinterpreting them with this unparalleled Italian know-how.
This mix of nationalities explains the originality and beauty of their pieces: created in South Korea in 2008, and made in Italy with the most beautiful fabrics of the peninsula. The creations are based on vintage items from the 1950s and 1960s and are remarkably rich in details and authentic finishes, with modern influences, and cuts clearly inspired by Korean and Japanese fashion. The result is a range of comfort clothing with a masculine aesthetic that is both very Italian (their pants, their suits) and a working class inspiration. The name of the label, East Harbour Surplus, reflects these influences: creations taken from the work clothes of the 50s, especially on the quays and ports, and an oriental touch.
