The newest brand to come out from Porter Classic is the KICHIZO brand that goes back to its roots as craftsman and to design and develop products with great attention to detail and style. It was established by Mr. Katsuyuki Yoshida,the man formerly in charge of Yoshida Kaban company whom also happens to be the son of Mr. Kichizo Yoshida,the original founder of Yoshida Kaban company early in the last century. KICHIZO was established after Mr. Yoshida has left Yoshida Kaban and the name of the brand was taken from his father’s name in order to stress the craftsmanship of the Yoshida fam. Of course Japanese men’s fashion magazine SENSE is aware of the up and coming KICHIZO brand and they have invited them for THE BLACK SENSE MARKET collection. There are three elaborately crafted bags included in their collection, which are unique and unlike other bags they had produced in the past. Each of these items are ready for pre-order until the September 10 and will only be made to order, so be quick.
