Drawing inspiration from U.S. infantry supplies of the late 1960s, global accessories brand Herschel Supply introduces the Surplus Collection for Fall 2016. This comprehensive selection of everyday essentials unites authentic herringbone twill with tactically inspired details.
Each Army-toned piece features heavy-duty exposed zippers and hardware constructed with tumbled matte nickel, which was utilised by infantry soldiers to reduce glare. Also among the design-driven finishes are durable cotton webbing utility straps, a custom Tiger Camo liner and internal Surplus Division field ops branding.
Joining the military-inspired range of backpack, tote, duffle, hip pack and travel kit silhouettes is Surplus headwear. Styles such as the Guard fatigue cap, which is new for Fall, and the Creek bucket hat are detailed with antique copper hardware and an internal notebook sleeve built into the top panel of the crown.
The Surplus Collection for Fall 2016 is available at ASOS.
