We were on our way to Brooklyn Bowl and were right off Bedford at the time, when we spotted a typical brooklyn guy with a marvelous beard wearing a bag much like our Royal Bedford. I just remember that his beard was massive and he looked like he had been living out of that bag for months. That moment sort of inspired the whole vibe of the brand and definitely inspired the name of this bag.
We named this album "Escape from The City" because it was the first time that I had actually left New York in quite some time. Robby and Darren who are two friends of mine headed out to Ft. Pickens on the Gulf Coast of Florida with an old land cruiser and royal einfield bike. The Royal Bedford was the trips perfect accessory.
