Return Of The Backpack

This season, with many designers having redesigned it, the biggest trend in terms of men accessories is the statement backpack.

There is probably nothing more practical than a backpack. So it’s good news that they are the season’s hottest trend.

A man named Gerry Cunningham, owner and creator of Gerry Outdoors, is credited with the two biggest innovations that would, decades later, lead to the modern school backpack: the use of zippers and nylon for day bags. In 1938, he made a rucksack with two zippered compartments, and in 1967, he improved his design and came up with the nylon backpack.
