Anyone who repurposes billboards for a living eventually has to ask themselves one logical question: what can I do with all of the trucks that crashed admiring this Calvin Klein model's dong?? Finally recycling from billboards and autos, Defy Bags.
Representing a new direction for an Evanston-based dude who started out fashioning a single style of messenger bag from old billboards, Defy Bags has evolved into a robust line of stuff-hauling action in all shapes and sizes, now made out of used truck tarps and seat belts (which were also used...by NERDS!). The new goods include sturdy duffles (avail red/white/green) with black handles and plaid fabric on the interior, a vertically oriented messenger with a velcro closure lined with reclaimed parachute fabric called the Deep Blue, and a 13-inch laptop-ready deep purple job with gray trim and webbing called the Day Tripper, ideal for any paperback writers who say they want a revolution...I AM THE WALRUS! Additional baggage includes the Charlie Brown, featuring four interior pockets and a yellow/black exterior reminiscent of a certain character's t-shirt; the Inc., which has a double-layered black exterior, double-clip closures, and heavy duty metal hardware reclaimed from the U.S. military; and an old-fashioned solid black number with a prominent single clip and army green straps called the Mr. Big, far better baggage for Carrie to carry around than the crinkled-leather Barishnikov clutch. Gross girl, how could you?
Stay tuned in the future as Defy has plans to branch out into wallets and more athletically inclined bags for golf and also snowboarding, a sport whose baggy ensembles prevent you from blaming your crashes on beautiful, beautiful man dong.
