Jack Spade was founded with the idea that useful items can be both utilitarian and stylish. While living in Downtown Manhattan in 1996, where space is at a minimum, everything that was owned needed to serve a purpose. Jack Spade could not find the kind of products that he had in mind, so he decided to make them, beginning with bags. Jack Spade makes both functional and fashionable products designed for city life and appreciated by men everywhere who deserve a product that looks good with function. Shortly after the success of these bags, Jack Spade added accessories, then a full line of clothing. Jack Spade continues to challenge themselves to create their simple and functional products for the everywhere man.
