a series dedicated to Japanese magazine that come with complimentary bags.
I have previously scored mooks that c/w Fred Perry & agnès b. voyage bags,
but nothing comes close and compares to this direct from Japan score!
DIRECT FROM JAPAN
PERFECT BOOK 2010 summer SPECIAL EDITION
c/w HEAD PORTER bag
I doubt you know HEAD PORTER or even PORTER. HEADPORTER is a spin-off label from the popular and expensive Japanese label PORTER made by YOSHIDA & CO., who has been around for many many years. YOSHIDA & CO. has been making quality baggage products under the label PORTER and adored by the Japanese of all age groups. Its popularity created many collaborations and spin-off labels. PORTER products are ranked number 1 in street fashion labels in Hong Kong. It seems like PORTER products are exclusively sold only in Japan and not distributed out. However, a spin-off label for overseas market has been created with the same name and same logo, but the quality is not the same as the "real" PORTER that is made in Japan by YOSHIDA & CO..
2010 summer SPECIAL EDITION
The front of the bag has a small label tag that bears the trademark insignia of HEAD PORTER.
The quality of this bag compared to any other complimentary MOOKxBAGs is in the waterproof canvas material, which gives the bag a sturdy and strong feel.
The inside of the main bag has a smart compartment for tissue papers or wallet.
The bag works great and is cool with hand carry, ...
arm carry, ...
shoulder sling, ...
and cross sling with the detachable long sling.
This is definitely the most worthwhile score from Japan!
Apparantly, as of the date of this post, this HEAD PORTER PERFECT BOOK 2010 summer SPECIAL EDITION collection MOOK that comes with this quality HEAD PORTER bag, is still not sold in Singapore yet!
Folks in Singapore will have to patiently wait for it to arrive to our stores.
It sure was cool to spend just S$19 for this!
When not in use, it folds neatly away.
This is by far the best complimentary MOOKxBAG that I've come across and this is the only bag that can pass off as a main bag.
