Dashing Fashion Statements from GRAMS28

Published

on

Welcome to the wonderful world of GRAMS28.

The entire dashing line is full of bold and dynamic pieces that both provide fantastic function capabilities all while adding stunning fashion to your life.

Everything can be found from lifestyle gear showcasing tech cases of IPhone cases, AirPods cases; and wallets and accessories with card holders and Apple Watch bands. There are also terrific organizers, cases and slings that will have you wondering how you ever functioned in life without them. Sling bags and briefcases are also superb and splendid.

The desirable collection keeps the wearer thrilled with how they divinely work in everyday scenarios from carrying your credit cards, to computers and cameras. What makes this renowned collection even more special is the fact that these are products that are made from full-grain leather. To complete a perfect lifestyle, the use of the highest quality of leather you can find by GRAMS28 is to provide the opportunity to integrate luxury and sophistication in your world.

The 171 Laptop Sling is a phenomenal example of this fashion nova created by the brand. It is a timeless design that is gorgeous to the eye. Then when you unzip, you unveil pure magic. Lining and stitching provides excellent craftsmanship. Modern looks go further with clever pockets and sides to put your belongings in perfectly. You are organized and there is even a quick-access pocket designed for visibility and convenience. Artisanal craftsmanship is beautiful and comfortable.

Founder Benjamin Chan gave us thrilling insight during a recent interview as to why GRAMS28 is a perfect brand to acquire this season and beyond.

Design is so sophisticated, but also seamless. Can you describe the philosophy of your design?

I’m glad that you like what we offer! We try to both appeal to the senses and to provide value in everyday use. We don’t want to compromise on either, so we’re dedicated to figuring out the best ways to blend sophistication with practicality.

How does full-grain leather make a difference in your design elements? Why do you think the consumer falls in love with it?

We’re adamant in using full-grain leather, the highest grade of leather. Not only does it improve the durability and longevity of the product, it also ensures that the quality of our products are always what our customers would expect. Full-grain leather is made from the topmost layer of cowhide, meaning it has been exposed to the elements and experiences in a way that is very authentic. When a customer purchases a GRAMS28 product, they are also participating in that unique, one-of-a-kind history.

So many things on the site are perfect for the man on the go who does not want to sacrifice luxury. Why does this style principle mean so much to the brand – knowing that a man can have it all.

I started GRAMS28 in response to a lack that I could sense in the market. It didn’t make sense to me why so many brands are manufacturing products that only fulfilled one of those needs but not the other. Customers shouldn’t feel like they have to pick one over the other, when it is completely feasible to provide both. We are trying to remedy the gap in the market by providing functional luxury, our own personal revolution.

 Why is this a perfect bag for all high-end work moments?

The 171 Laptop Sling shines in its versatility. It delivers on aesthetics as well as practicality. It’s incredibly spacious and can fit up to a 14” MacBook Pro, along with all of your everyday essentials. At the same time, it also boasts a sleek and tailored design that easily elevates any outfit. It’s the ideal option for people who travel for work.

We offer a wide range of accessories regardless of the occasion and time of day, so you can always have the best item to compliment your needs. The understated and sophisticated aesthetic that we opt for means that different styles can easily be integrated with our creations.

A lifetime warranty says a lot about a brand believing in themselves. Explain more why such a powerful belief.

It’s our way of saying that we will be responsible for our creations. We made it and designed it, and we’ll follow through: this is the tenet of our sustainability. Creating products that can last you through many years and experiences is part of our ideal, and we do our best to make that happen. Like you, GRAMS28’s creations get better with age.

  • Unique Limited Editions and Rarity

Another reason why vintage sports fashion still shines even after such a long time is because of its exclusivity.

  • Celebrity Endorsements and Cultural Significance

One of the main reasons why vintage sports fashion is still so much loved is because of the celebrities that are associated with them. For instance, we all remember that iconic Bulls jersey of Michael Jordan. Even though it’s just a mere jersey; ever since Michael Jordan wore it on the field all of a sudden it also became his fan’s favorite. That’s the reason why that simple jersey is so much loved even today.
