I could post this with a witty caption like, “On my Kanye circa The College Dropout…”, butttttttt NAH. This is by far the fucking ILLEST shit I’ve ever come across while thrifting. To be clear, I’m not actively #outhere thrifting every weekend, but every now and then I like to sift through a few racks. My usual come-ups—Carhartt jackets, L.L. Bean work shirts, and Coogi sweaters—can’t hold a candle to this nearly 15-year-old hand knitted Ralph Lauren relic. I WAS 8 WHEN THIS SHIT CAME OUT! My RL collection runs pretty deep, but this is my first piece from the Polo Bear collection and I’m beyond stoked.
Thank you Thrift Lords 🙏
"Might as well have the best."—Filson
I’ve had my eye on a few Filson bags for a while now and I finally pulled the trigger on their twill backpack in otter green. Constructed with their signature 22-oz. 100% cotton oil twill finish “Rugged Twill” with 100% genuine bridle leather accents. Yeah, this thing is built like a tank… I currently have an Incase backpack and although it definitely gets the job done, I often feel like it clashes with my alphet. It’s a little too technical for my liking, but this backpack is exactly what I was looking for. It’s simple enough to use on a day-to-day basis and, if taken care of properly, will likely outlast you and I both. I’ll take some kewl style flicks when it comes in the mail, so check back sometime next week to see this bad boy in action.
