The Porter bag is an undisputed streetwear icon. But it wasn't always so. The brand was founded in 1962 by Kichizo Yoshida who, at the time, had already been producing handcrafted leather bags for almost 35 years. As an artisan who had perfected his craft since before the world war, he wanted to create something for the masses. Something he would be remembered by. Something for the youth. The result became these elegant variations of nylon twill bags. They still live up to Yoshida's high production standards, but moreover, they had a much more accessible look, feel and utility to them.
