Dickies Team Up with Eastpak for Rugged Bag Collection
Sometimes a collaboration just makes sense. The Dickies x Eastpak collection is one of them. Two iconic brands with a longstanding heritage of quality, durability, and authenticity, the Dickies x Eastpak collection uses Eastpak’s functional forms with upgraded design features inspired by Dickies’ classic garments.
Evoking the same robust simplicity that has made Dickies a household name Stateside since 1922, their latest collaboration with Eastpak sees the American workwear giant give three of Eastpak’s staple luggage pieces a rugged makeover just in time for summer travelling.
The first in the collection is the Padded Pak’r. First introduced over 40 years ago, this Eastpak classic forms the perfect backdrop for this workwear-inspired collection and is infused with all the hallmarks of Dickies with heavy-duty, triple-stitched twill fabric, check lining, and functional extras such as hammer loops and metal hardware.
The oversize waist bag has seen a bit of resurgence in the past couple of years and is only going to gain in popularity over festival season. The Bunde, as it’s called here, comes with some authentic Dickies design elements, such as the same robust twill fabrics found in their authentic workwear, check lining and an adjustable waist belt in rich webbing for maximum comfort.
The Stand+ is the final piece in the collection and for us is the highlight. This functional and timeless classic duffle features a large, versatile main compartment with multipurpose pockets, adjustable shoulder strap, padded carry handles, and a co-branded Dickies x Eastpak logo.
The Dickies x Eastpak Collection is available in three classic Dickies’ colours – Dickies Brown Duck, Dickies Black, and Dickies Khaki – with prices ranging from £80 for the Stand+, £75 for the Padded Pak’r and £35 for the Bunde over at the Dickies Life Website.
