Launched in 2008, East Harbour Surplus is a brand that was founded by Han Taemin from Korea and Fabrizio Vanni from Firenze, Italy.
They used to work as a designer and a production manager in the same company for 4 years.
Founded in Firenze, an important city in menswear, East Harbour Surplus, was inspired by military surplus clothing worn in every day life.
It is a brand that reinterprets military clothing according to seasons with tailoring that can be best done in Italy. The combination of these two inspirations is the main driver of the brand and the theme of the East Harbour Surplus.
It was introduced to PITTI UOMO in 2012 and is now sold in more than 70 stores worldwide.
