In 2013, he launched a collection of loungewear, Sleepy Jones. Alongside Partners & Spade, he also produced feature films with Red Bucket Films, and writes and publishes books through HarperCollins. A "Jack of all trades" to say the least.
Jack Spade is the men's complimentary brand to the Kate Spade brand. Currently, the brand no longer belongs to the Spade family. It is now owned by Liz Claiborne. The takeover was done in 2007. The Jack Spade brand prides itself in casually elegant men's clothing. Their signature items are their messenger bags. The messenger bags are actually what started it all. The clothing came later. They started by making messenger bags out of waxed cotton and heavy canvas. The design was simple yet functional. The materials were timeless and long-lasting. In order to get a pubic view in regards to their bags' durability, they decided to sell the bags to people who use utility bags in their work. The first Jack Spade bag was sold to a hardware store in 1997. They are made with great detail, and careful precision when it comes to pockets, zippers, and pockets.
