Who?: Jason Akoi is a college student enrolled at the diverse institution in New Jersey known as Rugters. Along with a fellow college friend, Tobi, the two have created a bag company called Herds of the Fathers. Not t-shirts, as so many people do nowadays, but bags. Leather bags, to be specific. Mini backpacks, duffle bags, there should be something for everyone. A good chunk of change out of your pocket, but the quality is worth it. They've certainly garnered an impressive amount of support and success so far. It's only up from here.
Tales of the Visual: Not too long ago, Jason and I met in the city on a day so cold that only eskimos could have withstood it without flinching. We braved through, however, and discussed the brand's fascination with leather, the whole process behind getting a bag actually made, and what the best moment of his life has been so far.
