Does anyone have experience with J. Panther (AKA J.P.L.C.)?

Been thinking about getting the Aviator, but with $600 price tag, I dunno..

Does anyone know a european brand that makes a good duffel bag, but is not as expensive (or good, I know) as e. g. SAB? For instance I like some bags from J. W. Hulme, Schlesinger and Filson, but it pains me to pay the extra customs money for stuff from the USA. Some english options could be Pickett, SageBrown or Maxwell Scott. Does anyone have opinions on these brands, and/or other options?

Those two bags have different styles, fabrications, are are not even remotely in the same price range.

The difference? I wouldn't touch the MbMJ, but I'd carry the Givenchy if someone gave it to me. I wouldn't spend money on either.

Looking for a non-japanese version of this Free&Easy Bag
. Any recommendation'
post #2436 of 2773
hi gents,

on a recent trip to paris on the eurostar, i felt a inelegant with my delsey black canvas roll on luggage.

so, was thinking to purchase some type of holdall. i want something that i can keep long term, and something of good quality. also need a bag thatis versatile - i may use it for weekend trips (patch pocket blazers and jeans or grey flannels), or for business trips (grey flannel suits or worsted grey suits) i want somethign that doesnt scream too loudly (no logos if possible) i am leaning towards brown or tan rather than black, but hard to find nice mens holdalls in my opinion.

here are the options i found so far, any opinions on which best suited and the colour? i do like the shape of some of the bottega veneta (out of my budget) and ysl bags (not crazy about Y logo)..

so all i have found is..

tan or havana in SAB (not sure which is less formal of the two bags, or more classic)

dunhill (dont think this bag made anymore)
http://www.styleforum.net/t/198318/big-timer-dunhill-tradition-bridle-leather-holdall


mulberry clipper in tan or black (although i'm not crazy about the logo, OR the shape and wonder how the quality is as is the same price as SAB)
http://www.mrporter.com/product/301604

YSL (dont want black or logo though)
http://www.mrporter.com/product/312896

bottega shape i like, but cannot afford..

like this type of shape but not the finish..
http://www.dmarge.com/2010/04/dunhill-hold-all-bag.html


anywyas, any suggestions for a bag that..
- very good quality
- elegant, not garish or full of logos
- not overpriced and glued together.


thanks

I sold that Dunhill Tradition bag you linked to - I could have sold it 30 times over. Retail is about £3k though so certainly not a budget option.

The SABs you linked to are great, though I prefer the traditional holdall to the other one. It's worth keeping an eye on their online Factory Shop - http://www.papworthtravelgoods.co.uk/the_factory_shop/large_leather_goods/index.html

Another option for good stuff at reasonable prices is Tusting. If you're in London they are stocked at Fortnum & Mason and doubtless elsewhere. They make for others, notably Pickett, too - the quality is the same and the price higher, but sometimes they have slightly different models or decent discounts.

This is the Medium Explorer in Atlantic leather. I have one in Kudu suede and it wears very well. If I'm being critical the hardwear is a slightly naff antiqued bronze which works fine but isn't quite up to the aging potential of the leathers - I'd prefer plain matte or polished.



I'd avoid the Mulberry clippers - their Scotchgrain is hardwearing but basically just a synthetic cloth and the prices they're charging these days are disproportionate to the quality.

indeed the dunhill tradition bag is well over budget, but beautiful!

thank you for the tusting suggestion, how is the quality on the tusting? it is less then half the price of the SAB, but it does look very nice in the picture!

as far as the SAB, which size would be sufficient for weekend trips, and would i be able to carry on board planes the cambridge 19 or 25?
http://www.swaineadeney.co.uk/products/camb19_h/index.html

in terms of colour - i wanted a bag i could use on weekends even with jeans, or perhaps for business - london tan looks gorgeous but i also like the havana.

also, am i right in thinking the cambridge is more formal and the oxford less formal?

finally, i have uploaded a few pictures of a bag i inherited. it was purchased circa 20-25 years ago at Harrods in London, it is by Hartmann. it does have quite a large stain that i believe is quite recent, perhaps it will fade in time. if anyone has suggestion on how to lessen the stains impact advice is appreciated.







dont know if anyone has pictures of an aged cambridge or oxford SAB? seem hard to find in forums

A while ago I made these bags with my brother. All organically hand dyed korean fabrics with charcoal, persimmon, gallnut, ash, and indigo plant. All made in Seoul.


After a couple of months we put the brand on hold for the next 7 months but restarted recently and are releasing a 5 bag collection very soon. Thought I'd post some pictures here before our release:


Our fabrics being dyed in the countryside of Korea


Our previous collection was 100% organic guangmok cotton, but for our new collection we use a Korean silk/cotton blend and sourced a great Italian leather


Our fabrics drying


behind the scenes from our lookbook


Organic dyed strap details for our M2 and daypack


Inside detail of our indigo daypack model

Apologies for the long post! Can't be thankful enough to Styleforum for all the support.
For more updates/sneakpeaks please check out our Facebook Page. Our new website and collection will be launched later in the month. K thanks!

Preview of our Ash Black color and our Monk Sack straps. The outer part of the bag is a 100% organic dyed Korean Silk/Cotton blend. The color you see is made by mixing Korean persimmon fruit, charcoal, and burnt ash. The patterned texture on every yard of this fabric is different, making each individual Monk Sack completely unique.

Both straps are hand-knotted to create a beautiful bow and the entire bag will soften with continuous use and look better over time.



This is the inside of our Ash Black Weekender bag. You can see a small peek of how the Korean Silk/Cotton and the Natural leather colors and textures combine. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

Good people of style forum:
Can anybody recommend a bag similar to the Knomo Tokyo in gray? I love the waxed canvas with leather trim and also the fact that it doesn't have the messenger bag flap (I find those get in the way), but of course the grey color has been discontinued and I can't find it anywhere. So if you guys know of a bag that's similar (for less than 200 bucks) or even better, you have ideas of where I could find the Tokyo bag, I'd be eternally grateful!

Btw I've looked through many pages of this thread looking for what I want and haven't found much... most of the canvas bags are very old-school, new england style bags. Nothing against that look, it's just not my style.

Few Updates


inside leather patches


These are our backpack handles before they are sewn on. 100% natural double-layered leather so its extremely sturdy! There are no logo prints anywhere on the bags except the handle where IISE is hand stamped.


Behind the scenes production shot! All of our bags are handmade in a small workshop in Seoul by people who have been in the industry for over 30 years.


Detailed shot of our straps before they are connected to our M2 & Daypack models. We love the ash black color and how textured and random the patterns are for each and every strap.


Another behind the scenes shot from our lookbook shoot. Traditional Korean architecture is so inspirational. The details you can find on the roofs, doors, and walls are all amazing.


Army of IISE daypacks ready to take over.

Production is now officially finished, few more days to our release!
