Very confusing. Iirc the original Porter is Yoshida, then International is from Taiwan sort of a copy of Yoshida. And Head is like a collab with Yoshida?

Taken from the label of my head porter bag.

There's a head porter label inside the bags from head porter. I guess this is the difference?

I think porter Japan used to outsource production in Taiwan. But later on they decided to split so there are two brands of bags - porter Tokyo which is made in Japan and porter international which is made in Taiwan.

Tokyu hands is NOT head porter.

Is Japan Porter (Yoshida Porter)
You mean the Toyku Hands in SG?

It's Taiwan that counterfeited Yoshida Porter
Yoshida porter never outsourced production to Taiwan

Taiwan Porter International is take designs from Yoshida Porter and then use their own materials to make. So u will see a lot of similar designs but different material/color. In my view though, its not as nice nor quality as the one can get in Japan.

I visited the Omotesando and Marunouchi outlets before. Most of the stuffs sold there, u can find on the head porter website as well as tokyu hands in japan.

Actually i don't know what is the diff between Head and Yoshida Porter. the porter bags i bought in Tokyu Hands are as good as any bag my money can buy so i am not so particular about the exact branding.

headporter bags got "headporter" label inside the bags...... but the labels outside the bags are the same.

I think the two companies got some different designs. can refer to their websites to compare.

I saw a few Kura Chika stores in Taiwan. see the last few shops in the website. these are Porter Tokyo and not Porter International.
