It won't be perfect rectangle shape for sure when the pouch is not packed. I have the bb dot series, though not as soft as tanker series.
I see, thanks for the info. I saw someone carrying it and the shape was quite perfect as compared to my tanker series. So want to verify again with those who have it.

it is sewn like a rectangle box, but the 'Tanker' material is quite soft so it will sag abit. wont go totally flat.

those bags sewn like a 2d template will go totally flat when its empty, eg many of those Chrome messenger bags

I am using the Tanker series and when it's quite empty. It tends to sag. So was wondering whether will the Black beauty sag cos they are made of different material.

I bought most of mine from Takashimaya at Shinjuku

they have 5% discount if you pay by cash
but the tax refund of 8% will tio jiak 1.5% by Takashimaya

Almost every department store sells Porter
So if paying by card, i suggest not buying from Taka

but for comprehensive collection, you need to visit KURA CHIKA stores
go to Porter website to find the store locations

I didnt buy any from Kura Chika as the ones i want can be found at departmental stores

plus, i'm not sure hether Kura Chika can do tax refund


Kura don't offer tax rebate one
So taka still better if not it's Tokyo hands

Kurachika Yoshida def does not offer any tax refund policies in their main stores as prev mentioned by forumer fuzzybear, I can confirm regarding this fact as I was just in Japan earlier during June, and have personally visited the Omotesando main store and also the one in Osaka. Bought some stuffs there and confirmed with the sales representative that there is no 8% tax refund avail.

So far from what I understand since i have been collecting their bags/wallets for a few yrs now, only those stores at Tokyu Hands and selected smaller stores found in various parts of Harajuku got the tax refund, but they may not have the full catalogue of models/series as shown on Kurachika's website which is 吉田カバンホー*ページ | YOSHIDA & CO., LTD. .

They only have 3 flagship stores in Japan, the links I had provided as aformentioned in my above post are those direct main stores managed under Kurachika Yoshida & Co. In Odaiba they don't have any flagship store, so the one u bought from is one of those 'reseller authorised' smaller stores just like those found at Tokyo Hands.
