Enter Herschel Supply, who five years ago embarked on a journey to reinvent the men’s accessories market, and five years on appear to have done so. Herschel Supply’s co-founders Jamie and Lyndon Cormack now had the ambition to create a new natural technology that added more premium quality fabrics to the existing characteristics of the Herschel range.

Now they have trademarked a new fabric called Apexknit, which they are using to create a new range of bags that have an altogether more premium aesthetic.

“As a utility design-driven brand, the ApexKnit™ Collection feels like an organic progression for us. It speaks to a certain segment of our customers that are looking for a design that has an elevated athletic look and feel, but utility form and function.”

~ Jamie Cormack, Co-Founder, Herschel Supply
