Last year, we were fortunate enough to spend some time at KILLSPENCER’s workshop in downtown LA. While hanging out there we met two young guys, Ben and Jason, who were in the middle of doing an internship of sorts with KILLSPENCER. Fast forward 12 months and they’ve gone out and created their own brand – VINTED.
VINTED is the result of Ben and Jason’s research and development from the last couple of years, a long obsession with carry, and some time spent creating the brand. From the limited time we spent with them, they shared some great insights within carry and you could see how much they were sucking up everything they could from their time with Spencer.
The carry gear mixes a heritage vibe with some tech construction tricks like welded seams. It’s a pretty bold look, but one you should be able to carry through work or play.
We’re digging the Charlie Duffle with it’s Authentics Kuvert inspiration, feeling the Roger briefcase, and generally loving how cohesive the overall range is looking.
The interesting thing about VINTED, beyond the lovely look of the products and brand, is they have launched it via KickStarter. Yep, Kickstarter. They’ve got a goal of $30k and are almost halfway there already, with most people grabbing the pledge that will see them get a Briefcase. There’s a variety of pledges you can drop some cash on to support these guys. Check out the VINTED Kickstarter page for more.
