Kichizo Yoshida’s motto of “one stitch all soul” is still today the companies motto. Their belief in the craftsmen of Japan as number one in the world is unwavering. Their passion, attitude, skill and faith in their work is what “Heart and soul in every stitch” is all about. Always made in Japan.
Sage Green 3 way Brief case
The “TANKER” series, which is synonymous with PORTER, was announced in 1983.
The original three–layer structure fabric developed with the motif of the flight jacket “MA–1” of the US Air Force is adopted. The 3–layer fabric of nylon twill (front side) + polyester cotton (middle layer) + nylon taffeta (back side) is very light, and the soft feel of the bonding material and the bright rescue orange on the back side are attractive. This series is packed with the thorough commitment of Yoshida & Co. craftsmen in all processes from cutting to sewing and parts.
The back side is a bright rescue orange. In addition, the aluminum fasteners, snap buttons, and metal fittings such as Naskan, which were rare at the time of the announcement, are intentionally stripped of paint so that they will change over time as they are used.
A 3WAY briefcase sized to store B4 documents. It is a two–layer system that makes it easy to sort luggage, the front layer can be fully opened, and the interior is also equipped with multiple pockets. The main compartment has an L–shaped fastener that makes it easy to open and close regardless of whether it is used vertically or horizontally, making it highly practical.
Number of pockets
Exterior: 2 Interior: 6
All models come with an original porter purse.
The original color at the time of the announcement, “SAGE GREEN”, is a military color that faithfully reproduces the colors of the time.
