From certain angles it does have abit of that shinyness. This is built to be a work/business type of bag.

On a side note anyone knows how to go about cleaning/maintaining such bags? I believe this bag the materials are:
MATERIAL
table: Cordura® Nylon Twill
(Teflon® Fabric Protector Processing · PVC Processing)
Back: Nylon Ox
(Teflon® Fabric Protector Processing)
Attached: Cow Kip (Chrome Tanning)
Thanks for the feedback! End up I bought as2ov in Japan but Porter is ever so nice. Just that nothing caught my eye for it's current season

tenso/buyee loh, still got many other forwarding services


Rakuten got their Rakuten Global Express in-house forwarding service, but i dunno how to use... so my 1st time is try Buyee


my first exp with Buyee is you put the rakuten page link, click buy, select plan, pay with paypal.
Buyee hoots item on your behalf from the site (so you don't get any points etc).
Once reach Buyee warehouse, then you pay for domestic shipping of item in japan to their warehouse + shipping to SG

Guys, what u all think of this bag? Thinking of getting this but afraid that it could be a tad shiny.. does the shinyness get reduced with use overtime? Thank you.

Model no. 655-17875
How much is this bag. Can share the link?

For those that visiting Tokyo. Do go to the Tokyo hands in Takashimaya Shinjuku. There is a Potr by Porter. If not please do go to the Omotesando or Tokyo station stores.

It only make more sense, without shipping cost. But but Singapore customs may need to declare gst, that is IF you remember to...

Rakuten and Amazon JP only shipped selected and very limited design.
I tried asking before and they are unable to ship oversea due to some agreement with Porter.

One of the collection they shipped oversea is PORTER x PEANUTS JOE PORTER....cos i got it from Amazon JP.

try others loh

can't recall if i used tenso or buyee.

i used their "buy for me" service to get a replacement backpack harness which is only for sale in japan.

forwarders these days think got 2 kinds of services.

1. you process, order and mail to the domestic address provided by the forwarder. they can obviously see you are gaijin from your details.

2. "buy for me" service, where you link the stuff you want. then forwarder buy on your behalf, and ship to their facility.

How do you all maintain your porter bags mainly the canvas ones? Can they be washed?

Just use a damp soft cloth to wipe every now and then. Babysit the bag and it will last you almost forever. I just bought a bape x porter mixed camo waist bag. Quality is still top notch.
