Never really got Porter.

Super expensive here but was cheap and available in lots of shops in Japan.

Stuff just looked a bit cheap and nan kid to me.

Porter isn't going anywhere!

It's Head Porter, which is the clothing range.

Shame, always liked their chinos and had a really cool wool a2 jacket by them at one point that I got too fat for.

Also in my experience Porter bags just *last* - found them all really well made compared to other brands.

Agreed,I got a porter duffle bag years ago and its taken a beating and still looks great and the hardware is all intact. Use to be able to pick them up in the sales for cheap but think the brand is hyped up a bit nowadays.

Rez, What is the difference between Headporter and Headporter Plus?

Byte, the hipsters have clocked.

Headporter is the bags\luggage label while HPP is the clothing line.

Both founded by Hiroshi Fujiwara in collaboration with Porter
