Geek chic

I noticed a couple of cool items that could be categorised as geek chic. At the request of Urban Outfitters, Timbuk2 have made a vintage version of its messenger bag.  It evokes 80s design, but you can still rely on Timbuk2’s legendary build quality. It is available in black, royal blue or bottle green and available to order online from Timbuk2.

Tenderloin is a Japanese label who make beautiful quality streetwear and accessories. These items aren’t cheap but they are made by the best people in their respective businesses.Take Tenderloin’s ’Specs’ glasses are a classic plastic frame shape that hark back to Michael Caine’s Harry Palmer character in The Ipcress File. The frames are made the craftspeople at Hakusan Glasses in Japan made famous by Beatle legend John Lennon. These can be bought online at Bond International.
