Haversack is a Japanese brand, founded by Koji Norihide in 1997.
It is named after the linen and wool bags used by the American Army, famous for their strength and durability, two qualities that represent the spirit and the identity of the brand.

Haversack collections are a perfect blend of military elements, workwear, uniform and bespoke, translated into contemporary and modern silhouettes. Koji finds inspiration mainly from the ’20s, ’30s, and ’40s vintage clothing archives.
Every garment is designed and manufactured in Japan with a great emphasis on details and quality.
Koji pays a strict attention to the cut, stitching and details of his design, emphasis that few brands, especially outside of Japan, can match.
I am in love with this pair of menswear pants with suspenders. I would love to get them for me!
Haversack has also launched its women’s collection, which is adorable. I would buy everything!
Haversack’s loyal following keeps growing each season. However, it has only recently emerged from Japan and made it into Europe.
