A look now at the newest additions to our store courtesy of William Fox & Sons. Originally established in 1913, William Fox & Sons have overtime become somewhat renowned as specialists in traditional sports such as rugby, track & field and as diverse as mountain hiking & ocean going yachting.
“The spirit of adventure that is built-into these practices & the feel of the rugged landscapes is reflected in the clothing of this illustrious society. This attitude toward clothing is what defines the heritage of the company.”
When the company originated, they literally began as a small handful of clothing enthusiasts & as mentioned in their online biography, put advances in design & progression as a company, down to moving along with technological developments, new production methods & changing lifestyles & environments that we live in, all of which have ultimately brought them to a point where new wares exist for all types a countless amount of outdoor activities.
For me some of the best features when it comes to accessories is the attention to the smaller things & fine tuning, if you will, which William Fox & Sons have definitely done here to set them apart from the standard backpack. Made in the USA & having running themes throughout the design such as the suede tabs & zip closures, continuing adjustable padded shoulder straps & also patch on the front right sporting the company motif are all nice little features. Another feature which is refreshing to see lies in the variation of styles & colourways, which leave you wondering what the company’s next move could be when it comes to their next release.
In total we now have 3 styles of backpack from William Fox & Sons for you to get your hands on. Firstly, the ‘Day Pack’ which will be available in Saffron, Moss & Garn Red, a medium sized backpack, perfect for short trips & smaller daily essentials.
The next style that we will be stocking is the ‘Tear Drop’ pack which will be available in 2 colourways, Mandarin & Royal. Slightly larger than the Day Pack, yet still convenient & easy to handle in size, the Tear Drop style features the running design theme of suede pull tabs & the single diamond suede patch & in addition features a suede bottom.
The last of the 3 styles we have is the William Fox & Sons ‘Trail Pack’ available in Navy & Royal colourways. The largest of the 3 styles, it is a lot more suitable maybe for a longer haul journey. It uses the standard main single compartment & in addition to that has two side compartments enabling space for just those few extra belongings that you’re usually umm-ing & err-ing about taking on your trip.
Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for when these go live on our online store, but for those of you lucky enough to be able to get down to our physical store they are currently available for purchase.
