now is definitely not the right time to buy from coolcat

jap currency is 0.0170 now!

when i bought my few bags was around 0.0136.

my Porter Tanker Shoulder L from $200 bag becomes $260

and Heat Briefcase from $390 become $493

scary....

waiting for rates to drop to "normal" of around 0.0145
want to buy a Freestyle Shoulder

IIRC, porter increase price also right ? therefore ontop of the crazy currency rate (please go down, I'm going to Japan in 1 months time ), the price increase also plays a part.

headporter is a "streetwear" line of japan porter.

so basically, its just the branding.

think along emporio armani and ax.

porter only increase price by 500yen to 1000yen "only"

but coolcat removed the "handling" charge of 300/500yen already
