it means its something of low quality & done in bad taste...
when the porter tag is gone, it is just a normal bag...

Just went to Porter Intl. just now at Wisma, was taking a look at the HEAT series Totes..

10%, 15%, 20% discount depending on amount spent.

One M-size going for $327?
The other one, L-size, going for $4X0+. This one looks more like the PORTER-TOKYO one.

But how come the P.I. bags are more expensive than the Japanese ones now?

I used to think, it's all about the label tag, but really, the other parts also not as nice as the Japan one. Probably "okay" if it was in the 200+ range but now it's $4X0-something.

Problem now is Coolcat stopped overseas orders. I'm thinking of ordering the tote from Rakuten via one of the MOs. Any other advice/recommendations?

I just received my tanker pouch from Rakuten ordered on 3 Jun 09. Reached my place at 6 Jun 10.30am but I wasn't around so only collected from Singapore Post Centre today. Very happy with my purchase

I was sad that Coolcat not doing overseas orders anymore. Thank god for Rakuten but going through the japanese is quite a hassle for me.

Nevertheless happy

What do you all think?

As above.
Selling Authentic Headporter Dot Black Beauty Waistbag
Needs no intro i guess.

Condition is 9/10. ( No lose threads, stains, nor scratches.)

Headporter Website selling over SGD400
Shops in SG selling SGD380 or higher.

Now selling at: $290 (Negotiable if fast deal)
Contact: 9757 4535

Will not accept lowballing, as everyone should know the pricing for headporters.
Will deal at Hougang Area.

Cheers! =D


Pictures. (with 2MGP hp camera, not that good)


ykk zip.
In my opinion, its not authentic
