When it comes to shopping for a bag, most guys are no longer content with just utility or versatility these days. Appearances are just as crucial for the style-savvy amongst us – we’re talking about designs that are sensible, chic and timeless with just the right amount of trend-infused details whilst steering away from overtly seasonal or over-the-top trappings.
Adopting a similar direction is bag-maker Porter International, popular with the young and young-at-heart for their trendy-meets-utilitarian backpacks and luggage since 2001.What truly stands out is the brand’s simple and low-key aesthetics whilst establishing and maintaining its image as an “affordable luxury brand”.
Its latest collection, Keepers, is all about protecting your valuables in style. Bags in the Keepers range come with hidden compartments for you to secure important items like your passport, wallet and keys. Its most striking feature is the dual-tone external compartment on a series of unfettered totes and messenger bags. The colour combinations of black/grey, green/tan, khaki/brown and dark blue/burgundy lend the designs a youthful, refreshing edge.
