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 for menswear, East Harbour Surplus, was inspired by military surplus clothing worn in everyday 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.
