Neighborhood Japan’s Porter Pouch Is A Cool Way To Carry Small Things
Small man bags are a tricky aspect of men’s style. They’re functional, everyday necessities—bags that are only large enough to conveniently carry the few items you need bring to and from the office everyday. And yet so many of us manage to get them wrong because we neglect the impact that they can have on an outfit.
Think of how many men you come across on a regular day who would be decently- or well-dressed if not for the tiny athletic sling bag, or the sweaty drawstring backpack. Think of the one guy at your office who wears a fanny pack everyday to carry various office supplies and a small bottle of hand sanitizer that he whips out and spritzes on his hands every five minutes. Think of the guy in the IT department whose daily carry-all is a ratty, twelve-pocket laptop bag that came free with the laptop. Each one is a style tragedy.
So if you find yourself in the same situation of needing a small bag, but are acutely aware of how tiny bags can seriously cramp your style, you may want to check out this tiny bag by Neighborhood Japan and Porter Yoshida Kaban.
Neighborhood Japan is one of the world’s most respected streetwear labels, while Porter is a brand of bags that’s renowned for the consistent build quality and design of its products. Both hail from Japan (which in itself is already a promise of quality), and teamed up this year for a line of bags and accessories. Among them is a small and simple clutch-style pouch that’s both functional and stylish. Made in Japan and of 100% Cordura nylon, this pouch is certainly your better bet for lugging around grooming items, writing implements, spare change, or charging cords—the bare essentials for your day-to-day.
The Neighborhood Japan x Porter Pouch comes in three colors: olive drab, black, and woodland camouflage; and is available at Commonwealth, SM Aura for P6,500. For those of you who don't mind shipping, you can also get them at END.
